Hidden

 

Hidden

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

― Roald Dahl

Whew, what a week….and it’s only Monday. There’s an audible sigh coming from me with that whole first sentence. So my blog is a little late. I meant to blog. I swear. BUT, my computer had other plans–mainly an annoying update. It had the effect of making my FPS really slow. So my pictures weren’t the greatest. As a result, I waited to blog. I fixed the problem. I had help though from some really cool people inworld. Thank you by the way, you wonderful souls out there.

Okay enough about my computer drama. I know what you want……clothes. Or at least, you should. I want clothes. Has this tangent gone on long enough? I think it has. The mask in the picture comes from the Kink monthly event. A collaboration between Dura and {MK} created this wonderful mask. Then, I headed over to Uber and found this really sexy body suit and skirt. I also found this fantastic hair

The hair is so great that it deserves its own paragraph. At Uber, little bones is selling hair that comes with animations. You can FLIP your hair and place it. I absolutely love and adore this feature. I keep playing with it. I look forward to going to clubs and using the animations with my hud. It’s different and neat. I think a lot of people are going to love it.

Now on to the quote above…. I love masks. I buy them all the time. I like wearing them. I like the idea of being hidden. There’s something metaphorical too about wearing a mask in SL. There’s also a bit of magic in second life. Sure, it can be difficult at times. But there’s good, if you look for it. I thought it was fitting.

There’s a bunch of shopping events all over the grid. Grab a friend and head on over.

Be kind to one another

“It is a tough choice between ending up in the cold or ending up in a fiery blast.”
Saul Perlmutter

I thought about endings a lot lately. Maybe, it’s the end of summer or just life in general. I mean life has a lot of endings. For me, the summer ends swiftly. I enjoy warm summer days, so it’s a bit sad to see it go. This year, it will end up in the cold and not a fiery blast.

I’ve had a difficult ride this summer. Second life provided me a much needed escape. I came into this world for a bit of magic and fun. The designers help keep my imagination alive. The residents have befriended me to give me fantasy or a shoulder for support. Not every person I meet will learn of my real life. Sometimes people need this place as a time to breathe–a moment where reality is left at login. This place provided an oasis or safe spot–to gain the energy to head  back into the real world at times.

I will regain my happy. It may take some time and maybe a shot of vodka–but I will be. I apologize for my previous sad blog. I know residents have enough to contend with in their real lives. So I shall find a bright spot in the darkness and shine it into my blog. We all need light in our lives.

Now on to shopping, there’s great shopping on the grid from Collabor88 to the Arcade. You can find this dress at Collabor88. It’s by Erratic. You better hurry though. This airy summer dress won’t be there for long, so grab a friend and go shopping.

Be good to one another.

As always, happy shopping.

Out of The Darkness

Out of The Darkness

“I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe.” Dalai Lama

 

I’ve been ignoring everything–absolutely everything. I felt like the world was a wretched place and I wanted to escape everything in sight. If I could run away from this thing called real life for awhile, I would. Then, I realized second life can be that place sometimes. So I took a moment to do just that. I’m sorry this blog post isn’t long, but I’m going through a difficult time and needed a breather.

If you see me inworld, please be kind. I don’t want to talk about it. My quote is about hope, because hope is the way out of the darkness. I’m holding tightly onto hope. Sometimes it’s the only thing that gets a person through. So residents…..no matter what you’re going through clutch on to hope.

Hoping for a better day.
