My Remedy

My dad always told us that if we weren’t feeling good we should go for a walk outside. Most of the time the walk cleared my head and made me feel better. Dads know stuff. Wayward Winter ends tomorrow so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out you can still do so today and tomorrow.

Dudes

It’s always nice to find good guy poses, and at Pose Fair this year Londenia Leistone of Ridic has released this guy-friend pose, named simply “Dudes Pose.” So I went in search of some of my favorite SL dudes, Leto and Steel, who are always fun to photograph. Since they also expressed appreciation for Winter Thorn’s Harvest Chairs,  I am including a photo of them sitting there, as well. Thanks to both of them for helping me out with these photos.

Low Places

I’ve been wanting to use this great pose from Positure since Rhapsody opened but I have generally not done well with the seedy grunge-photo look. So today I tried my hand at it.

070214a

Helping me to complete my look are the Tear It Up mesh shirt and pants from Greymoon, along with wall hangings from Frogstar and Exposeur. The beautiful mesh guitar prop from Haste sits forgotten as our girl drowns her sorrows. Also to love are the Koffin chipped nails from Dark Passions.

Three SL Wishes

Joining in the fun….

 

1. I wish sex weren’t the main draw of SL. Whenever I tell anyone I play in SL their initial reaction is shock—and then they start to wonder just how perverted I am. When I go to marketplace there are boobs or sex poses or some other sexualized item in the featured boxes. Every single time. I know that is why a lot of people come here, and I get it. It’s not why I play. There is so much more to SL. Maybe my perception is wrong, but sex is certainly the primary thing advertised in SL.

2. Put. Away. The. Pitchforks. I hear so many people say “I hate drama” but see very few actually stepping away from it. It is very nearly impossible in SL to truly know all sides of a situation, so save the energy and emotion for things that are worth it. There would be no drama if people didn’t feed into it.

3. I wish land weren’t so expensive. It would be great to see the explosion in creativity if substantial land was accessible to more people.

One thought on “Three SL Wishes

  1. Rudhmellowen

    You’re wishes are great honey, I love the honesty in them. I have two similar wishes but I didn’t actually think about the land one until reading your wishes… I want cheaper land too!!!! That would be awesome!

Night-time

I love a night-time fire. Toasting marshmallows, telling stories, or just dreaming. One favorite family tradition of mine is when my dad tells ghost stories around the campfire at our yearly family reunion. I promise there really was fire, and not just smoke! Then of course you have to have a boy sticking some sort of object into the fire to have it all be complete. My nephew did the honors this year.

Family Reunion

My fire comes from the fabulous Winter Thorn at What Next. My comfy chair and glowing fire can make a girl very drowsy when she hasn’t got a dad scaring her (or making her laugh, as the case may be) with ghost stories!  I stay snug and warm in my chunky mesh turtleneck from Eclectic Wingtips and my sturdy boots from L’Emporio.

New Orleans

I went to New Orleans once. It was a nice visit, great street musicians, and lots of energy. What it wasn’t was quiet and romantic. And yet that’s how Barnesworth Anubis’ New Orleans studio balcony felt like, set above the street and so a little removed from the hustle and bustle of below. A perfect opportunity to show off Stewart’s new duds from FATEwear.
