A little bit country

I grew up in the country and live in a city. I have enjoyed the benefits and put up with the inconveniences of both rural and urban life and in the end, I choose the city. Still, there are times I miss the country. Listening to some neighbor’s car alarm last night, random noises from […]

And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing

When they begin the beguine It brings back the sound of music so tender It brings back a night of tropical splendor It brings back a memory ever green I’m with you once more under the stars And down by the shore an orchestra’s playing And even the palms seem to be swaying When they […]

Variety

  One of the many blessings of our second lives is the great variety we can enjoy every single day. Not only can we jump from winter to summer to the moon and back, enjoying sims from every continent, but we can enjoy more ordinary variety that is also fulfilling. In our first lives, moving […]

This moment yearning

THIS moment yearning and thoughtful sitting alone, It seems to me there are other men in other lands yearning and thoughtful, It seems to me I can look over and behold them in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, Or far, far away, in China, or in Russia or Japan, talking other dialects, And it seems to me […]

After Gidge’s said Get Thee To Japan Fair the other day, I knew I better head over to Japan Fair  as soon as possible.  Japan Fair is raising money for ShelterBox a charity that helps people who are displaced whether by natural disasters or the manmade disaster of political violence providing them with a box containing […]

Bacteria Free Second Life

A cold has been kicking my butt for six weeks now. I think it is almost gone and BAM! it’s back stronger than ever. That makes me so grateful for the relatively bacteria-free world of Second Life. You can get a cold in Second Life, but you have to buy it and you can take […]

Hoarders: The SL Edition

  I admit I am an SL hoarder. I have items in my inventory from 2007. In fact, I am wearing items from 2007 in this picture. Now, I am not the worst. I do throw things out. Pose stands, landmarks, notecards are ruthlessly trashed. All my shoes with invisiprims have been deleted. Pants with […]

All Good Things Come to an End

  Three very good things are coming to an end. The quarterly gacha festival at The Arcade ends today. The annual Skin Fair has ended and the March cycle of Collabor88 is nearing its end as well. If you have been waiting for the crowds to thin before going in for your mad shopping spree […]

Blowing in the Wind

A lot of life’s answers are blowing in the wind, as the Bob Dylan song asserts. But what does that mean? Some people think it means the answers are right in front of our faces – answers we could pluck from the air if we only chose to do so. Myself, I think it means […]

What to do when they don’t make your color?

  Not every hair designer makes colors that are a perfect fit for all of us. Redheads encounter many Japanese designers, for example, who do not make red hair.  I really loved this .Shi hair style called Blown when I saw it on Strawberry Singh’s blog .  Joy LaPerriere is just beginning to create hair for […]

This is Real Life

Let me start with a confession. I do not hate Shopping Cart Disco’s SL Secrets. From sociology and evolutionary psychology, I understand the role of gossip in defining community norms and values. It is possible that anonymity allows more viciousness than we might see in first life, but given the many stories about young people […]

Rockberry – The PG Pics

Rockberry has released skins for Skin Fair and today I’m reviewing MIRA in the light tone. There is a lot of light on this skin – and sometimes if gives off shading effects that I find a little distracting. It’s actually a very pretty tone, and I know that all skinners create light and shadows […]

Five? Five. Five!

What comes in fives? All sorts of good things. We have five fingers and toes and five senses. There are five food groups. Yummy! There are five Great Lakes. There are five elements in classical metaphysics (earth, air, fire, water and aether) and five elements of design (lines, shapes, mass, texture, and color). There are […]

No. 7 Sporty Lipsticks – A Review from Skin Fair

I like the sporty pack of lipsticks from No. 7 at Skin Fair. They’re a bit out of my lane but I thought the color combos and the gloss was flawless. I have a slight quibble in that there is definite pixelation up close.  You can see this in the above picture, the smaller images […]

Back In Business and Ain’t It Grand

Putting on the suit from ISON for Collabor88 this month, the wonderful song performed by Eartha Kitt came to mind. I tried to find it on YouTube for you, but it was not there. However, I found this beautiful interview with Eartha on love and compromise reminding me again what an amazing and vital woman […]

I am on an emotional roller coaster

I do not know what has come over me. One second I am angry. The next I am shy and diffident. And then I am reflective  and thoughtful. Is there something in the water?   Or is it that I have a new toy to play with? Yes, the Slink Visage mesh head is going […]
