Give Me The Simple Life

I don't believe in frettin' and grievin'
Why mess around with strife?
I never was cut out to step and strut out
Give me the simple life
Some find it pleasant dining on pheasant
Those things roll off my knife
Just serve me tomatoes and mashed potatoes
Give me the simple life
A cottage small is all I'm after
Not one that's spacious and wide
A home that rings with joy and laughter
And the ones you love inside
Some like the high road, I like the low road
Free from the grief and strife
Sounds corny and seedy, but, yes, indeedy
Give me the simple life

Somedays.....

the world will drag you by your hand,
yelling ''This is important! and this is important!
You need to worry about this! and this! and this !
And each day,
it's up to you, to yank your hand back,
put it on your hear and say
''No, this is what's important''

Protect Your Friends From The Wolves

Sticks and stones may break my bones but names can destroy me. Not the way the rhyme goes, but it should. Bullying isn't just kids punching each other in the playground. Many adults are bullies and they find the keyboard the best place to do it. It is easy to name call and rip a person apart when you type the words because most times these people would never have the guts to say it to a person face to face. After all we know bullies are gutless, weak people who have to steal the strength from others as they  cause damage. It is when we either ignore the bully or we cheer them on that we become as bad as them.
We cheer them on by the attention SL secrets gets each Sunday, or we laugh as they post on FB about another person, dragging them through the mud. The bully claims the person is wrong and they are just pointing out the mistake - we all make mistakes but helping the person fix it is a better way to be. Then others join in posting comments, laughing, hitting a thumbs up or whatever. Joining in makes us just as bad.
Many in SL have mental health and self esteem problems. The damage  these cruel words can create goes way past  what is said in the moment on facebook (or any other place). 
So when you see a friend being  bullied, don't sit in the shadow, stand by them. I don't mean interact with the bully, I mean talk to your friend. Check they are ok, that they are coping. If you can laugh at it all together, even better. A bully tries to single out a person so if  we all stand with the person the bully stops. Something to try  and live by  is to treat others as you wish to be treated, we become more gentle with our words and actions when we do

Whatever .....

Whatever the week ahead brings,
May you hang on tightly to you
sense of humour and your patience.
May you find moments of peace
and beauty amidst the chaos.
May your compassion be deep
enough to include yourself.

Time

I've lost track of time...
every day different,
Yet feeling the same...
Every moment unique
Yet  the same to any other...
Night has become my refuge,
Loneliness my bride...
Her dreams, my anguish...
Her passion, my  end...
An epilogue of sadness,
In this chapter of absolution...
And now,
There is nothing in motion...
All is silent...
All is calm...
sleeping peacefully,
On a bed of apparent innocence

In The Between

Search for me in the pauses between my words.
In the silent moments.
That's where I hide.
Look for me beneath the lines of my favourite books.
In the between places.
That's where you'll find me.
Read me in the eloquence of my eyes.
In the secret stories.
That's where I'll be.

I'm good, but I'm not an angel
but no matter what I am
I am glad I'm not YOU

Love Me

I seen this pose and it was funny, why ? because it was a woman holding a man who had been caught outside some strip club. I planned to blog it yesterday and  it to be a funny post. Then I seen something in facebook and it made it puke. It was violent and cruel. I was left shaken and emotional - it was violence of a woman against a man. It made me rethink the planned blog post. I showed it to my husband and he laughed too and then I asked, what if this pose had the people the other way round. The laughing stopped. Violence is not OK, not just against women and cute dogs. Violence is not OK. If you are suffering in RL  please reach out for help, you are not alone and you a don't have to live like that. You are worth more . If you see someone suffering, never sit back, never ignore it, it is in the  silence pain continues.

Take Time


Take your time healing,
as long as you want.
Nobody else
 knows what 
you've been through,
how could they
know how long it 
will take to heal you.

And they called it puppy love .....

Oh, I guess they'll never know
How a young heart really feels
And why I love her so
And they called it puppy love
Just because we're in our teens
Tell them all, please tell them it isn't fair
To take away my only dream
I cry each night my tears for you
My tears are all in vain
I'll hope and I'll pray that maybe someday
You'll be back in my arms once again

Older The Fiddle....

Most times we look for  perfection in SL. We want perfect skin, perfect shape, to be young and beautiful. Beautiful can be older too, just look at this skin and shape from Poema. Not only do they make and older face, they provide the shape to pull it off better. They take time on the body  too, if you want real, this is it. Stunning av that really does rock the older look.

Oh Demelza !

“Everything at the moment, my dear, no doubt seems disgusting. I know the mood too well. But being in that mood, Ross, is like being out in the frost. If we do not keep on the move we shall perish.” 

As soon as I put this skirt on felt very 'Poldark'. When my husband walked in and see this picture I was planning he said the same thing. I adore that show, maybe that is why I adore this skirt.
