Take the Long Road and the High Road

I’m an avid people watcher in real life and in Second Life. Not in a stalkery kind of way before you think that, but in a way of wanting to know more about people and personalities and how they interact with people. Facebook is one of my favourite places to observe. I comment little but I…

Witch Way to Turn

A couple of years ago Sady commented to me that pain is a powerful muse. I’d just finished taking some photographs that were very expressive and personal to the situation that you have all seen me talk about here in the past.  They weren’t the worlds best photos but they expressed the anguish I was…

My Own Worst Enemy

I’m generally quite stable when it comes to my mood. I’m outgoing, gregarious and positive 99% of the time. When I do have a mood swing though I go from one to the polar opposite.  It usually manifests itself in every tiny thought of self-doubt that I’ve ever had magnifying to a million times their normal…

Scare Me

  I’m not afraid of lonely I’ve gotten good at being that Ain’t seen nothin’ that could hold me Say good-bye and don’t look back Running, always ready Feel as strong and steady But you scare me Took a long walk after midnight Trying to make sense of it all Tried to catch a glimpse…

Turning

Most people I know love the Fall season, or as we call it on this side of the pond, Autumn.  It’s the colours and change of the weather mainly for me but also the significance that the season is about  the beginning of the end and the promise of the start of new things once…

Will You

I’ve got the real writer’s block at the moment! I think it’s because I’m on wind down for my vacation and focussed on that. I’ve got some super exciting news to share but I can’t yet but if you don’t already follow the Blogger & Vlogger Network on Facebook now would be a really good…

She’s Leaving Home

It’s a long weekend coming up in the UK with a public holiday on Monday and I’ve got to say I’m really looking forward to it. there are a few things you can guarantee about August Bank Holiday weekend and these are: The weather will be awful The roads will be at a standstill If…

The Value of Time

Everyone’s time has value but one thing I’ve noticed is how much others don’t always value the time of other people. Like the debate on designers making items for different bodies. I think I’m going to talk about that in more detail at some point in the future but it is one example of people…

Lose Yourself

Starting over again every day like it’s the first. One of the things I enjoy most about blogging is delving into my virtual dress up box and pulling out a look that surprises. Kess has a look, and a personal style…those people that see me outside of these photos would know the trademarks…redhead, freckles, casual…

Sweet Southern Charm

Savannah is the latest impressive mainstore release from Galland Homes. It’s a large family size home with spacious living areas on both floors. I actually really like this style of house, having bought one similar a couple of years ago, and while this one is probably a little big for me on my own to…

Something Worth Fighting For

Monday rolled around real quick after a super busy weekend. On Saturday I had the delightful, if a little nerve-wracking, experience of interviewing Blueberry and Sophia Harlow at The Blogger & Vlogger Network Meet the Designer presentation.  There were lots of points that they both made that I found useful and interesting and if you…

Freak Out

Well this week has not gone to plan at all! Off I toodled to bed on Tuesday night, happy as Larry (though who Larry is and why he’s so happy I’ve no idea). Anyhoo, turned off computer, went to bed, slept soundly, though not for long enough as usual. Life is often much scarier than…
