Seeing these made me really look forward to getting into the arcade this round. I just love little sprites, elves and willo-the-wisps, we’ll all sorts of flights of fancy and whimsy. I have the perfect spot on my fireplace mantel, don’t you too? Check it out on my friend Moni of Miamai’s blog. #secondlife #slhome #slevents
Originally posted on MIAMAI :: Fashion House: I am happy to introduce you to my little friends, the Sprites!

They come straight to my real life, they have been hanging out with me since some months.
In my real life, they are little needle felted, benevolent Spirits who like to keep you company, help and protect you.
I create them from wool, sculpting them with a felting needle, and they carry herbs that I gather and crystals, to bring you the benefits of the Earth Medicine.  They also like to dress up. Since they are curious little buddies always looking for new friends, we decided it was fun to bring them to Second Life as well…and here they are!… Read the rest

Loves Sweet Burden

Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. ~Charles R. Swindoll Lately I’ve been playing a lot of basketball with the pirate princess, the one thing I’ve always wanted to instill in her is she can do anything she has the drive and dedication to but it requires practice. Taylor even put up a basketball hoop for us. It’s one of those one’s you can raise and lower, so we have it at the short height so Cao’s and 8 year olds have a chance of scoring every once in a while. It’s been a steep learning curve for me, but she seems to be having a great time and doesn’t seem to mind my best shot is the 6 foot high dunk. But with this teaching there is great responsibility and rewards must be given for good practice habits. So this weekend I am going to borrow her from her mama and drive her down to Central Florida to go see the Harlem Globetrotter’s. I have to admit, I am probably more excited than she is about this since she’s never seen them.… Read the restLoves Sweet Burden

Knickers and Snickers

Wearing underwear on the outside of your clothes can turn a tedious trip to the store for a forgotten carton of milk into an amusement park romp. ~Patch Adams Just a little something to make up for yesterday’s high gravity. Oh how the times have changed. Jack was about to marry Mary and his father took him to one side. ‘When I married your mother, the first thing I did when we got home was take off my trousers,’ he said. ‘I gave them to your mother and told her to put them on . When she did, they were enormous on her and she said to me that she couldn’t possibly wear them, as they were too large… ‘I told her, ‘of course they’re too big’. I wear the trousers in this family and I always will. ‘Ever since that day, we have never had a single problem.’ Jack took his father’s advice and as soon as he got Mary alone after the wedding, he did the same thing; took off his trousers, gave them to Mary and told her to put them on. Mary said that the trousers were far too big and she couldn’t possibly wear them.… Read the rest16652808325_d6c87b914d_o

All I Know I Learned From Siri

I read or heard somewhere that the problem with young adults these days is though they smile; they seldom smile with their eyes. In reality it’s easy to see why; we spend so much time looking at our electronic devices we’ve lost the capability of looking, I mean, *Really Looking* at people. I’d even bet we all know someone, if not ourselves, who has texted someone in the next room to ask them something. *raises hand in guilt* It’s as if we are the ones behind the glass, no longer living and breathing in this world. How often does your computer think you are in love with it? I get it; I catch myself smiling full on at the screen at times too. But the sad truth is it’s just a machine, incapable of having feelings for you. Now, that guy, you know, THAT guy, the one in front of you as you wait in line at the checkout line, he’s got it all, well, he might anyway, but who knows because you barely glanced up because you were looking for your next witty post to throw up on Facebook.… Read the restf6c3d61bd07f5a305c12d3f2d944e855

Less Than Zero

There’s nothing wrong with being a loser, it just depends on how good you are at it. ~ Billie Joe Armstrong
I had a really good “me”centric weekend and feel mentally better than I have in quite a while. Saturday I worked on some of my real life photos, hardly summing up enough momentum to even drop into Second Life for a little bit to shop, so my blogging may be a bit off this week. Sunday was the annual Daytona 500 party that I attend at a friends house. Unlike last year, much to Taylor’s delight, I refrained from dancing on the picnic table. It was such a gorgeous day for an outdoor party that I couldn’t muster much energy to do anything other than chat with friends whilst relaxing under a huge umbrella, warmed with the velvety bright softness of a balmy February day in Florida. This party is one of my favorite events of the year, I don’t know a lick about Nascar, but I enjoy seeing these friends, many of whom I only see about once a year now.… Read the restLess Than Zero

The Difference of Our Being

“All of us sport an invisible sign around our necks — “AS IS.” It means, take me as I am. I may not become what you want me to be. And I’m far, far from perfect. But I have some great qualities, too, as well as my share of faults. You will have to take me “AS IS” and I’ll take you that way, too.” ~ Steve Goodier Yeah, ahead of time, when I got into work today I pulled on the headphones and immediately started listening to Tool, it’s gonna be a high gravity one so if you want to just look at the pictures, I understand completely. Iggy Azalea is quitting Twitter because she was bullied for a “cellulite” bikini photo, special needs 15 year old bullied in class while substitute teacher looks on. This is the news headlines I am met with this morning. Really? This is all we’ve got? It’s like our world, especially the Internet is one big sieve and ever time you get one hole plugged the ugliness spews out of another area. What ever happened to social responsibility?… Read the restClarity of Being2

In a World Where you Are

“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” ― Anaïs Nin
I thought a little joke would lighten the mood. ;) Not long ago, three friends went to New York city. They decided to stay in a fancier many-storied hotel during the visit. It so happened that their room ended up being on the 60th floor. The policy of the hotel was that every night after 12:00 a.m. the elevators are shut down for security reasons. So on the next day, the three friends rented a car and went out to explore the city. They enjoyed movies, concerts, and other things throughout the whole day. At one point, they remembered that they have to get back to the hotel before 12 a.m. When they arrived, it was after midnight so the elevators were shut down. There was no other way to get back to their room but to take the stairs all the way to the 60th floor. All of a sudden, one friend got an idea. He said “For the first 20 floors, I will tell jokes to keep us going.… Read the rest16385774690_823614e3bb_o

Looking for a Different Response

Because life is an odd and beautiful form of art ~ Cao

I thought I would write something pithy and thought provoking today, but I’ve lost my muse for now. It’s cold today by Florida’s standards, no I won’t disclose the exact temperature because I know 99.9% of my readers (and Amy Rose) will climb through my monitor and kick my weasily arse for complaining about temperatures they would dream to be feeling right now. But as I took my walk along the lakefront this morning the icy wind chill made my brisk solitary existence seem so bleak and lonely that for now, I will hold myself within myself until I can repurpose the thoughts into a semblance of order. Until then, I wish you a moment of inner quieting of that obnoxious little voice, you know the one, it makes us feel inadequate, not good enough, rich enough, cool enough, whatever. Actually, I wish you that voice be gone forever, replaced with the one who affirms so quietly that you are, no, that WE are, just exactly enough.… Read the restOr a Lessor God

A Breath Before You Face the World

“I don’t like to share my personal life… it wouldn’t be personal if I shared it.”  ― George Clooney I noticed Strawberry Singh has a new Meme this week, I don’t often do them, but this one looks simple enough so here goes. This week’s meme is a series of questions about what we may (or may not) have done in Second Life. If you want to participate, here are the instructions: Meme Instructions: Copy and paste the following questions and answers to your post, delete my answers and input your own. Don’t forget to leave a link to your post in the comments (of this post) so others can come by and read your answers as well! So, here we go! 1. Have you ever owned a sim in Second Life? – No. I am a fairly practical Cao and prefer to burn through my income in real life more than the second one. I just have a little parcel of land with about 1700 prims. And boy do I max it out at times. Someone wanna buy me a SIM? 2. Have you ever created content in Second Life? – Can you imagine what I’d come up with?… Read the restAin't no sunshine

Hills and Valleys

“Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” Aristotle I am going to do a bit of remix today, as a toast to St. Valentines Day. My friend Skip Staheli fits casually into my life style like a well worn soft and fuzzy sweatshirt. I mean that in the best of ways. Winter always brings that out of me.  Skip and I have been working together, if you can call it work, it’s more fun than work ever will be, for about five years now.  So for him, and for all of you too, I want to repost a toast (slàinte) I wrote to my XiuXiu Bean, on the eve of the biggest day of her life, the day she got married in real life to the beloved man of her dreams. But somehow it fits for all of you on this day of love. I wish you more valleys than hills in your travels together. I pray though you love and cherish him, you remain a person, not just become a couple and continue to enjoy those things you alone are passionate for. I beg you never fight over money, it’s a senseless argument as there never seems to be enough of it to go around.… Read the restCao~Full of Passion

I Still Feel You

A Flicker of the Past

“Love heals. Heals and liberates. I use the word love, not meaning sentimentality, but a condition so strong that it may be that which holds the stars in their heavenly positions and that which causes the blood to flow orderly in our veins.” ~Maya Angelou It happens sometimes I can’t really help it. I seem to have misplaced myself and gotten behinder and behinder and that was with blogging twice a day. I wanted to be finished with blogging Love is in The Air today because it closes tomorrow, so the two blogs today will be packed chockfull of goodies! So here goes.

Latex and Lipstick

For me, getting older doesn’t mean throwing away a favourite-coloured lipstick or a fabulous pair of boots; instead, it’s about harnessing all the great things I have learnt over the years about what does and doesn’t suit me, and enjoying the way in which cleverly selected outfits can enhance the nice bits. ~Twiggy Outfit: Hair: Tableau Vivant, My Love Hair  @Collabor88
