Relaxing Moment

It’s been a lovely weekend of giving thanks for friends and family and for having enough when there are so many in the world who do not. Now to look forward and remember to be grateful along the way, and not take the good things in life for granted. Thanks as always, to my dear friend Stewart for being willing to put up with the ups and downs of SL fashion to help me with my photos.

Here Nor There

When I ventured here
Truth was far not near
So I traveled on
Truth revealed in song

I was here nor there
Always asking where
So I took my time
My heart for me to find

    There are times when in expressing oneself only a Haiku will do –

    What he writes here in
    response is something you wish
    he had said aloud.

Pacing the Cage

Sometimes the best map will not guide you
You can’t see what’s round the bend
Sometimes the road leads through dark places
Sometimes the darkness is your friend

-Bruce Cockburn, Pacing the Cage

This beautiful dark dress from Valentina E and the gorgeous Reign Sangria heels spoke to my mood today. Damselfly’s untamed Livley is available at We <3 Roleplay.

    Hush, you. You’re my role model!


I am having a hard time keeping track of all the June events this year. Fameshed, Collabor88, the Arcade, Summerfest, Rhapsody, etc., etc., etc. I have been wanting to blog this sweet dress from Valentina E. since the beginning of the month…it is available at Fameshed until the 27th, so there are still a few days left. My beautiful and delicate necklace is from the amazing Abraxxa Anatine and is at this round of The Liaison Collaborative.

The lines of the Just Us pose by Dream Print jumped out at me as I was wandering around Pose Fair. It shows the backside of Valentina E.’s ruffle gown beautifully and makes my friend Bastion look like he’s getting me ready for a twirl.


Since Bastion is quite skilled at creating beautiful dance poses, twirling ensued. I hope Bastion will apply to be in Pose Fair next year as well!

A Night Out

So to take a break from all the skin posts I thought I would share these pictures of my friend Isabelle Mortensen. She is wearing a gorgeous dress from Valentina Evangelista—perfect for a night out at the theater.
