Free, unrestrained and unhindered.

Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control. That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.
This month’s Collabor88 theme is Chic Gym and Purple Poses sure delivered a one-two-kick-punch salvo with their SportTime pose props. I am using the single poses.… Read the rest“the things in our control are by nature free, unhindered, and unobstructed"

Fall 2016 Home Vlog



        Hi, Welcome to our fall home. I made this home at the end of September, so we have been enjoying it for about two months now. I live in Florida in RL and so we don't have very many actual fall leaves. So I love to play with them (and snow) in Second Life. I made a video walk through of my home, so please come on over and visit!

A-Frame Life

Growing up on a resort lake with twenty-one year round residents, but thousands of weekenders who flood the lake and live in the more the hundreds of lakefront cabins that are empty most of the year, I am very familiar with A-frames. Lots of people bought A-Frame kits or pre-made A-Frames, much faster than the old-fashioned bungalow style cabins that signal older homes on the lake. This A-Frame from Barnesworth Anubis has an advantage over many of the lake front cabins as the ceiling rests on a short bit of vertical wall. The A-frames on the lake often did not have that bonus, which often meant a lot of space behind the couch when it was shoved against the wall and sometimes a clunk on your head. A-frame weekenders almost never came for winter ice-fishing, their cabins hard to heat with what heat they had rising to the ceiling and escaping from the lakefront windows. But they sure are pretty when you’re out in the canoe late at night, all the light from their wall of windows facing the lake, so bright and illuminated in contrast to the smaller windows on the bungalows.… Read the restOne could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Life Is Uncertain, Eat Dessert First

The veggie tray, apple pie, salt and pepper shakers and waffle iron can all be found at The Arcade. The uncertainties of life are manifest every day. Some uncertainties are harder than others. My sister has Stage IV lung cancer. But her future is still uncertain, it’s quite possible the chemo will kill her long before the cancer can. She’s been in the hospital for two weeks now as a mold has developed in her lungs, thanks to chemo bringing her white blood cell count down to zero. On Thursday, I learned she has developed VRE, a anti-biotic resistant bacteria similar but much more rare than MRSA, the OMG of countless House episodes. Of course, because when you are going to ER three times a day for 90 minute infusions of antibiotics, you develop anti-biotic resistant bacteria. I think it is time for her to eat a lot of dessert. Ice cream, apple pie, chocolate cake, brownies and coffee nips. Go for it!
This skirt is exactly like the ones I prefer in my first life.… Read the restLife is uncertain, eat dessert first.

Throw Some Southern Shade

I had a tremendous giggle when I saw the name of one of EXILE’S hairs for Collabor88 this month. Southern Shade might evoke images of willow treas, or Georgia pine cooling you down on a humid southern morning. Or if you’re me, and your typist is a girl living in the south of the US immediately you come to think of all those terms that sound nice but just aren’t – most of the time anyway. BLESS YOUR HEART might be the most famous of these, but this one is a tricky one. Bless your heart can be sincere. Something terrible has happened? Oh…bless your heart. You blew off your own eyebrows lighting gunpowder next to your face? BLESS YOUR HEART insert the tone. With Southern Shade being thrown it’s really all about tone.  It doesn’t translate well in text, but in person the sticky sweet southern accent can make even “Well I hope everyone is ok” sound like “Burn in the fires of hell”. It’s a special gift reserved for ladies of the south, this type of shade.… Read the rest

Where the love light gleams
I’ll be home for Christmas
If only in my dreams Lelutka has released a new mesh head called Simone. It’s a special edition head with additional expressions including this mournful one that perfectly captures some of the emotional turmoil I am feeling this Christmas season. With the passing of my aunt this summer, everyone from my parents’ generation is now gone. My sister had a tough struggle with cancer last year and came though in the end, but now has a new cancer that has gone from Stage One to Stage Four in just one month. I will confess I cry a lot lately, but I am still hopeful she will beat the odds. She is the strongest woman I know. Homesickness has manifested itself in the kitchen with traditional Christmas baking like lefse and rosettes and cooking up Cherry Soup with Dumplings, the foods that make me think of home and family.… Read the restLike It's Christmas in the Room

“Surely everyone is aware of the divine pleasures which attend a wintry fireside; candles at four o'clock, warm hearthrugs, tea, a fair tea-maker, shutters closed, curtains flowing in ample draperies to the floor, whilst the wind and rain are raging audibly without.” ~ Thomas de Quincey Continue reading →
