The choices that are my own…


My computer has been on sabbatical since December 18th. It took a trip to Cupertino to soak in the warmer weather and pick up a new logic board. Luckily, it returned last night just in time for me to show off this gorgeous dress from ISON before Collabor88 shimmies itself into a new monthly showcase on the 8th. Is this not lovely and it comes in five colors and I posed on that pose stand clicking the HUD through those colors over and over and over and over again trying to decide. It was impossible, they are all wonderful. So, I eenie-meenied my way to this lovely rose shade. I am decisive like that sometimes.


Speaking of choices, I am not one for resolutions or for self-help books. I laugh in their general direction! However, I have decided that there is a self-help book that appeals to me, The Daily Stoic by Ryan Holiday. I am going to try to read it one-day-at-a-time, as intended, though the temptation to read it all at once is strong. It has already made me roll by eyes a couple times, but I have read and appreciated Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus in the past.… Read the restWhere then do I look for good and evil? Not to uncontrollable externals, but within myself to the choices that are my own . .

And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been.

Rilke was right to note that the new year would be full of things that have never been. Every new year brings us innovation, discovery and change. In that, every new year brings us something to hope for despite looming dangers. Despite the many losses that have made 2016 a bitter and sorrowful year, I fear we may look back on it with longing as the Grand Panjandrum takes the oath he will break that very day and every day that follows. Tomorrow will follow tomorrow and time goes forward inexorably. All we can do, then, as we teeter on the edge of the abyss, is resist despair, resist defeat and find sanctuary in community, in beauty, and in certain knowledge that the arc of the moral universe may have gotten a kink in it, but it still bends toward justice.


It may be that Second Life® becomes a refuge, a haven of sanity and compassion in a world that has turned vicious and violent. There is a culture of tolerance, open-hearted decency, and cross-cultural respect in Second Life that may be a safe haven for people who find the open embrace of bigotry by our political leaders offensive and intolerable.… Read the restAnd now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been. Rainer Marie Rilke

New Year, New Me

~ Echo Dress Purple by Dead Dollz ~ Indio Thigh High Boots by Reign ~ Pose by Devilish Poses ~ Location: Elysion Hello Readers! It has been quite some time. I am sure you have seen blogs go from active to inactive and anywhere in between. I was never a truly prolific blogger, I don’t always have something to say or anything newsworthy to share. I am just a resident enjoying her SecondLife and who happens to like to blog about it sometimes. I recently celebrated my Rez Day…9 years in SL! I wanted to do a post, but the stars did not align right for that. I have spent half of my 9 years in SL exploring and learning how to role play, then I spent the second half of those 9 years breaking into the SL modeling scene. I am very comfortable with both and enjoy both sides of my SL to this day. I do feel the familiar urge to do something new with my SL, perhaps I get that urge every 4 years or so…who knows. What has captured my interest of late is all chatter about Bento. If you don’t know what I am talking about you will have to visit Strawberry Singh’s blog because as always, she does an excellent job explaining things.… Read the rest

A Mind of Their Own

The damn lights have a mind of their own. I picked them up at Collabor88, the newest release from Maxi Gossamer and they just insist on going everywhere. They’re all in a tangle and I need to untangle them before I can decorate. Of course, if you’re decorating the outside of your house, you need a smoking hot coat like this one from Mutresse. It comes with a color-change HUD that is stuffed with 20 colors that you can use to customize the turtleneck sweater, the zips, the collar, the lapel, the pockets and the jacket body and bodice. Such control gives you exactly what you want. It, too, is at Collabor88.
I believe when I turn my head, the lights jump back into a tangle. Oh well, you can get a good look at my whole outfit, including the applier tights from Izzie’s. I chose the adorable booties from Glamistry. I was able to pick the colors from a HUD to customize it to go with my coat. Exile released this lovely updo at Collabor88. It’s called Class Act and it sure is a class act.… Read the restDon't worry about the smallest size that light can be, it will chase away the darkness
