Twenty Degree’s West of Nowhere

A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost; he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love. ~ Saint Basil “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around.… Read the rest21791387785_b2a2b26cf1_o

A Singular Murmur from Another Room

Be thankful for what you have; you’ll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don’t have, you will never, ever have enough ~Oprah Winfrey Life is often hard, sometimes frustrating but then aren’t the best things in life the things we have worked so hard to achieve? Sure, anyone can dream, but why just dream? Why not make your dreams come true? My friend Debby Sharma has a post on her blog today about thanking your avatar. I was going to just post a picture today, but after thinking on it some I realized Debby is right, our avatar teaches us a thing or two about ourselves. At least Cao does for me. I won’t come out with a list of thankfulness because my thankfulness all stems from one thing Caoimhe has taught me. No matter what life throws at her, or me, we are OK. We carry a lot of “stuff” with us, our jobs, relationships, significant others, insignificant others, checkout clerks who don’t say thank you after you just spent your last dollar of the week, barbed comments, veiled threats, middle fingers.… Read the rest21270016004_a802b31ec1_o

A Similar Fire Flashingly Extended

She’s mad, but she’s magic. There’s no lie in her fire.” ~ Charles Bukowski She leaned forward and caught at his hand, pressing it between her own. The touch was like white fire through his veins. He could not feel her skin only the cloth of her gloves, and yet it did not matter. You kindled me, heap of ashes that I am, into fire. He had wondered once why love was always phrased in terms of burning. The conflagration in his own veins, now, gave the answer.”

When Everything is Reduced to a Tactical Decision

Every once in a while, when I am very introspective, I dig through the clutter of my soul, poking around in those dark dusty corners. I bring out cherished memories, either write about them or simply dust them off and tuck them lovingly back in for another day. Others I bring out and inspect, making sure they keep a little bit of the dust, because some memories are more calming with a fine layer of dust insulating them from the pain they cause us. ~Cao I’ve had such a reflective few weeks having just lost an aunt, my mother’s sister. She wasn’t just some long lost relative; she was my aunt the Greatest! We were born on the same day in different years and always tried to celebrate our big day together. But me, being a quasi-adult now and prone to making adult decisions, I sometimes had to make due with a postal exchange of birthday cards, a decision I now regret. But it is what it is. What was the result of all this mad hashing of the brain matter? When I brought out the memories of her it made me think of something she did bring to me.… Read the rest21603349610_01f3a691e8_o

If I’d Only Known Then

Gossip can be entertaining: occasionally, I’ve heard the most fascinating things about myself I never knew. ~Vanna Bonta
// I actually had moments of clarity when I was ready to come back here and blog, but as the day wore on, in the mists I fell back into confusion. Though in reality I know it is on blank ears my writ would fall, I’ve been away so long, who could still care? Tomorrow, perhaps tomorrow. Outfit: Hair: Vanity Hair, MoonRiver **NEW**

Friday’s Child

My second husband believed I had such a fickle attitude to friendship that each Friday he would update the list of my ‘Top Ten’ friends in the manner of a Top Of The Pops chart countdown. ~Julie Burchill Its the weekend, and I’m heading out of town.

I don’t even remember the season. I just remember walking between them and feeling for the first time that I belonged somewhere. ~ Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower Photo by Tempest Rosca I get quite tickled when I am offered a chance to participate in a magazine shoot. I often think people have long forgotten I even exist in the Second World. This past month I was honored with the opportunity to shoot with the fabulous photographer Tempest Rosca for Eclipse Magazine. I have to say I was challenged a bit having never styled a Libertine Couture in my second world, but in my mind, and with a little research on Vogue, I left with the feeling a feminized punk would do the trick for the first shoot. And Voila’ with the help of an incredible patient and professional Tempest, the first shoot was in the proverbial “can.” I could give you the credits here, but naw, I won’t. There were so many incredible styles in the magazine, I think you should check it out yourself!… Read the restPhoto by Tempest Rosca

Life, Is It Just a Box of Cereal?

Live life to the fullest, for the future is scarce. ~ Nick Carter I sometimes wonder what I will do on the last day of my life. I never used to think about this a’tall, but I guess when one loses their beloved father they tend to reflect on the missing now and again and sometimes painfully wonder if their father is looking down on them with pride or disappointment. My father was bigger than life to me, so smart, a doctor, so kind, a pediatrician, a stead-fast and true friend. If the apocalypse happened today, what would your last breaths of life entail? Ask me this a few years ago and I would probably say I’d spend it cowering under the bed covers, but truth be told, that doesn’t prolong the day, you will die anyway, so why shouldn’t you spend it squeezing every last ounce of joy out of it? The sad truth is, it’s easy to believe we are living when we go through the motions every single day by rote. But are we truly living up to our potential? I think to truly live we have to leave our comfort zone, don’t hide under the bed, go up on that hill and face death with a ferocity and clarity not yet felt before.… Read the restLife Is It Just a Box of Cereal

Where Ya Goin’?

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ~ Charles Dickens This picture has been sitting in my flickr waiting for me to pay attention to it for so long I’ve probably lost the credits. I’ve been doing that a lot lately. I think it’s time for me to step down and let the real SL fashion bloggers take over the cyber world. These days I seem to style outfits, take pictures and, and, well that’s it, just and. So a short but sweet post today (and no I am not completely leaving blogging or SL). But as I fade away, I want to share something. And, as always, it’s just my opinion, so you can take it away or shred it to oblivion. Over the weekend I was watching a story about a Canadian soccer player and he made a comment that caused me to stop and reflect. He said loosely, “Everyone who becomes someone great has someone who believed in them.” For him it was a beloved coach. I think that is something that is missing a lot in life these days and maybe the cause of a lot of the turmoil in the youth today.… Read the rest20929636420_1cb2ce6ba0_o

There’s Only One Life in Your Skin

You change the world by being yourself. ~ Yoko Ono I am a little backwards today, for me it’s a Tuesday/Monday and it’s sure feeling like it at the moment. So a little repost with a new style. You may not believe this, but some days it’s really hard being me. I am a self-confessed introvert, clumsy and on the best of days see everything a little left of normal. How do I deal with being me? Well, it hasn’t always been this easy, and I can honestly say looking back, I probably didn’t always handle it well, but I’ve learned some since the beginning, accepted the rigid parts, softened the pointy parts, and along the way, I grew used to myself. How? By defining who I am in my own terms. I took the time to dwell on what I value and considered what makes up the essence of who I am. Don’t get me wrong, as I grew in wisdom, I would have to occasionally reassess my core values, because if you are spiritually growing, your values may change, but the point is, I didn’t remain static and glued to one spot.… Read the restThere's Only One Life in Your Skin

How Bad We Need Each Other

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts, his acts being seven ages. ~ William Shakespeare It’s the weekend and I actually have a couple of commitments of the Second World kind to see to.

When I’m Still I Remember the Feel of you Breathing Next to Me

The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of those depths ~ Elisabeth Kubler-Ross Bad things happen to all of us in this life. It does not make us who we are, what defines us is how we respond to these events. Do we choose to sit mute in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the acuteness of the pain? Or do choose to rise up, face the sun and learn to treasure what was lost, but,  treasure the loss only as deeply as we should treasure what is yet to come. If we choose stillness, we stagnate, stunted from life, if we choose to rise above the pain, we create another multi-faceted layer of beautifully colored patina to our soul. I choose the pursuit of rich, color-filled, gloriously, messy-beautiful life, how about you? Ear Worm

I Got Dressed Up to Ride For You

“I knew the second I met you that there was something about you I needed. Turns out it wasn’t something about you at all. It was just you.” ~ Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire It’s been some kind of week. Work is shellacking me to the wall. But I was thinking, do you ever wonder why we fall out of love so often? Well, perhaps you haven’t, but I sure have in my lifetime of fallin in and out of it and I can tell you, dimes to donuts, if it’s me it’s because I become distracted. We live in such an information driven society, we are constantly connected and at times it seems easier to deal with that little contraption in our hands than it is to deal with the living breathing person standing right in front of us. We become distracted at that pivotal moment when our hearts have grown dull, our ears no longer listen to our “other” and instead of turning the power button off on that dam phone, we choose to shut our eyes to the person we profess to love. How easily we can be distracted by so many things, whether it’s our relationships with others or heck, simply with the process of driving a vehicle down the road.… Read the rest20441588450_a68a8a7834_o
