No place like home

I seen something I thought might be helpful to daft people like me when trying to  do outside decor. It is the lavender fields by Milk Motion. I bought it over at C88.  It is for a space of land you want filled fast and easy,  2 few sizes, also with and without  empty space to place a build. Also with and without surround. I used the smaller size on offer with the surrounds for this picture. I think this is a useful thing for blogger/photographers. It is also handy for people decorating sims and brilliant for those who have mainland space. I know mainland folk complain of the mess others place around them.The surround would help block stuff out. I played around with it and it does stretch well, just don't over do it, the lavender still moves naturally when stretched.
I am sitting on a chair on the porch right now while typing this up. It is a nice relaxing place to be right now. I might try and create something like this on my home sim space  when it gets a makeover..  I love this house, so will be using it more for inside shots.

Dogs are family, not accessories

I adore this little dog in the carry case in SL. It moves its head and ears, so sweet!. The case has a carry animations so when walking it all still works. I walked around all day yesterday with it while exploring a stunning sim. The link for it is below. With this new PC I can not go around places easier and everything is set to ultra.  I now have no excuses for my pictures other than lack of talent. 
Though I adore carrying this wee dog in SL, I would never do this in RL. I love dogs, just not into  getting the latest trend to carry around  because someone famous did it. To me dogs are part of the family. For SL, I will hold onto this little guy for a bit longer and keep exploring.

You are the light of my life

You are the light when there is no sun. 
You are the rainbow after the rain is done. 
You are the star that twinkles in the night. 
You are the moon that glows so bright.
You are the wind that whistles my name. 
You are the love when the world is the same.
You are the flowers the bee's never miss. 
You are the beach the warm sun kisses.

Melting

I am melting in this heat. Living inland is horrid and I know I moan about this every year. I just want to live by the sea, bit like most other people I guess. I had ice cream for lunch today and there is a risk I will have more later too.

Pool days

I have a collection of houses, I kept changing my home all the time until a friends came to live with me, then I had to behave. At least it stops me changing so often, sometimes daily. 
I keep seeing so many amazing bloggers make cluttered pictures that look amazing, I am trying to learn to do this too, or at least find my  own style in the process. So feedback would be brilliant. 
I do love  taking items from all different stores and blending them together like this. After all we do that in our RL homes. Just wish my RL home had a pool !

Journey

there is nothing in this world 
that can stop her journey

Keep

Keep the honest moments close to your heart. 
The ones that are the most human.
When you laugh until your ribs ache with your friends,
when you feel stars exploding inside of you from falling in love,
when life breaks you open and those tears of transformation pour like a river from your soul.
Life is really quite simple.
We get to experience this planet for a brief while.
We get to learn how to love ourselves and one another
 for the strange, messy, magical creatures we are.
What a gift it is to have a human life.
If you look a little closer, there is always something to be grateful for.
True gratitude isn't ignoring the darkness.
Its participating with your whole heart in whatever moment life brings.
Its leaning into the unfolding process and having the courage to not need all of the answers.

life should be like surfing

being in the moment
Only thinking about the next wave
And the possibility that it will be the one worth riding
And maybe a brief moment of regret 
That the one they just let pass may have been an opportunity
But just a brief and fleeting thought....
Because the next wave is already approaching

Rain

Let the rain kiss you
Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops
Let the rain sing you a lullaby
The rain makes still pools on the sidewalk
The rain makes running pools in the gutter
The rain plays a little sleep song on our roof at night
And I love the rain.

Happy Times


It's not about having everything you want,
But being okay with everything you have.
It's not about being popular and having millions of so called friends,
It's about having true friends that actually care about you and love you.

If my friends are like flowers

I typed up so much and then removed it all. Maybe sharing these words again is all that is really needed. 

In the tiny petal,
of a tiny flower
that grew from a tiny pod
is the miracle and mystery
of all creation and God.

Bring the best YOU into SL

The world makes me so sad at times. Seeing to much heartache around. People in need while others have more than they will ever use. Picking on people because of their religion, colour, sexuality. SL is meant to be that second life that we bring the good into and leave the cruel outside. Though that is not possible because we bring 'us' into it and some of 'us' are cruel. What you are saying may or may not be correct, but once you act like a bully, being cruel and vicious, you lose the right to speak, at least in my mind. SL puts people under a microscope. It highlights the real person inside us. Maybe that is why I seen so much kindness and so much evil all in one day. So, just like in RL, I will spend my SL with animals.

Summer ready and glued to the phone.

Going on holiday and taking a ton of selfies is insane to me. Why not take picture of the place you are visiting. Grab a picture with the folk who are with you. Take snaps of fun stuff and wonderful moments. They will mean more to you that scrolling through your phone and seeing nothing but your own face. While I am at it, stop it with the filters. If anyone ever kidnaps you the police will never know who they are looking for !.

Look Beyond


Look beyond the empty chair

To know a life well spent
Look beyond the solitude
To days of true content
Cherish in your broken heart
Each moment gladly shared
And feel the touch of memory
Beyond the empty chair

Going back to bed


I'm taking in your scent that still lingers against my hands
before i go to sleep,
to remind me one last time of the day I had with you,
and to pretend you're here whispering goodnight
with soft protective arms wrapped around me.
