I Rise

I Rise

There's a lot of love on the grid at the moment as our virtual, and real worlds, gear up for the ultimate day of love...Valentine's Day. However, there is something else happening on Valentine's Day, also in both worlds....One Billion Rising. What is One Billion Rising. The website for the event in the real world [...]

Somewhere only we know

Somewhere only we know

I came across a fallen tree I felt the branches of it looking at me Is this the place we used to love? Is this the place that I've been dreaming of?

Retreat in Peace

Retreat in Peace

It's been ironic that while building this set it's been absolutely tipping down in the UK as we've had two days of almost constant rain...and there's been nothing tropical about it.  There's been a few ironies in Second Life I've observed over the last few days too...and not the 'fly in chardonnay' type....that's just crappy [...]

Time to Feel Good – Hive Speed Edit

Time to Feel Good – Hive Speed Edit

Camping trips as a child were fraught with irritations, bad weather and arguments but I still look back on them through rose tinted glasses. I do remember the bad but I remember firstly the good times. Playing badminton, long days at the beach, running around free for hours, making new friends who you would declare [...]

Paint Your Nature

Paint Your Nature

I've had this picture in my mind for a well over a week now and was desperate for the time to 'paint' it. I was mulling over the scene in my mind when I came across this quote about art by Henry Ward Beecher: Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints [...]

One Day My Prince Will Come

One Day My Prince Will Come

The phrase 'you gotta kiss a lot of frogs' before you find the prince never much appealed to me in real life let alone in SL. In SL you're expected to go a lot further than kissing before your prince will reveal himself and that doesn't much appeal to me either.  I'm not judging. If [...]

Mind Your Beeswax Mother!

Mind Your Beeswax Mother!

I titled this post as that phrase is something my youngest daughter says to me when she thinks I'm trying to nose too deep into her business. It's difficult not to after the last few months when she's been sick and I've had to be far more 'parental' than usual to actually back off and [...]
