Someone watching over me

This may sound from the first paragraph that it’s going to be a depressing post…it’s really not, bear with me…there is light. Two major life events happened for me in a matter of days in the first week of October, 1991. On the Monday I found out I was pregnant and on the Sunday, just…

Something Old, Something New – A Blogger Challenge?

I’m a bit of a hoarder in both lives and, just like in real life, I love to find something in my inventory I haven’t worn for a while and dust off the cobwebs and give it an airing. Like this Besom hair I’m wearing that I first blogged in July 2015 and, in all honesty…

I Know Him So Well

I joked about using this title as one of the most well known songs from the Tim Rice musical Chess while I was taking this photograph.  Tim Rice was a very well known lyricist having worked on many hit musicals with Andrew Lloyd Webber but completed Chess, a cold war themed musical play, with Benny and…

When it’s hard to say no

The fine line between trying too hard and getting it just right is something I’ve been struggling with for a few weeks now…well probably longer than that but it’s become apparent to me over the last few weeks. A friend referred to me as a ‘typical overachiever’ a short while back and it’s stuck in…

Weather Girls

Have you ever noticed just how much people can be like the weather sometimes? There’s the saying about people who ‘blow hot and cold’ indicating someone who shows a lot of interest in someone or something at one point and then equally disinterested moments, hours or days later. I’ve realised that one of the things…

It’s got to be….PERFECT!

I always have a tune in my head while I’m blogging and today is no different. The song invading my mind today is Fairground Attraction’s Perfect. It’s been a long while since I heard that tune but I found myself humming the melody while I edited this photo.  See, the person in this photo with…

A Picture Postcard

I’ve been seeing lots of awesome pictures the last few days and not in the usual places! I visited The Vordun Museum and Gallery, owned and operated by my very dear friend Jake Vordun, this last weekend for the opening of his latest exhibit ‘Sincerely Yours’. I’ve known for a long time that Jake was…

The Person You Should Value Most Can Be Seen In the Mirror

Writing a blog where you talk openly about your thoughts and feelings can be like walking a tightrope sometimes. I know there are people that might read a post that is about them or about a situation involving them. That said, this blog was started as a place for me to write about those elements…

You Can Send No Transfer Love…maybe

Quite often my posts here are inspired by something I’ve seen on Facebook over the preceding days and today is no different. Gifting items in Second Life can be a little hit and miss. You might know if the person is online but with so many scams and phishing ‘bots’ in Second Life many of…

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

You gotta love the fact that you can experience all four seasons in one day in Second Life. Now, I seriously LOVE Autumn, it’s my rl favourite time of the year but having felt a bit under the weather this week it actually felt good to throw off the pixel sweaters and jeans and visit…

I Don’t Shine if you Don’t Shine

I’ve been thinking about writing about Shine Theory for some time and my amazing, beautiful friend Sady wrote about a similar thing today on her blog so it seemed like today should be the day! I first heard about Shine Theory from an article on the BBC about the aides working in President Obama’s White House…

Through Glass

I am a big fan of that song by Stone Sour – Through Glass and I know several people that think of it as a song that resonates with their personal relationships in Second Life. How much is real? So much to question An epidemic of the mannequins Contaminating everything Those of you who have…
