I Can, I Will, I Do Believe

I can, I will, I do believe
I can, I will, I do believe
I can, I will, I do believe
Fall in love with you

-Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys, I Can, I Will, I Do Believe

I dare you to not tap your toe to this one.  I DARE YOU. There was simply no other song sweet enough for Winter Thorn’s Sweetheart balloon pose that is available at the Love is in the Air event until tomorrow. So listen to the awesome that is Jimmy Martin and the Sunny Mountain Boys and dance your darlin’ around the kitchen this Valentine’s Day.

Portable

I took piano lessons for almost fifteen years when I was growing up.  One would think that this would make me a virtuoso of sorts, but the truth is that I am quite average, mostly playing for church meetings or accompanying singers or as a backup pianist for my ukulele-obsessed husband, who likes to have ukulele/piano jam sessions. Yeah. Nerds. So anyway, if there is something I really want to play, I can usually find a way to play it given enough time. Obviously not Rachmaninoff, but you know. Regular things. The mathematical and physical perfection of music performed well is to me one of the most magical things in life.

The piano is a wonderful instrument, but one thing a piano definitely isn’t is portable. And keyboards are just not musically acceptable. Note: piano snob. So last year I started taking guitar lessons, and made my teacher start pulling his hair out when he asked me what kind of music I wanted to play on the guitar. “Whatever I feel like playing”, I told him. So he makes me play scales all the day long. It’s not elegant or attractive, and my husband’s noise-cancelling earphones have saved our marriage when he just can’t listen to the scales any longer, but this is something that takes time. Maybe fifteen years’ time. One day, though, I will be able to walk down a street like Eliza with her instrument in its cool case from the Body Factory, knowing that wherever it is I am headed, I carry the magic with me.

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.

Dance

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!

Pose Fair has begun and there is so much pose love to be found there! To start off, this beauty of a pose is from Del May. I love how Del May poses make SL avatars curve and bend naturally.

Here is the LM to Pose Fair!

Delirium

Love, the deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.

But that isn’t it, exactly.

The condemner and the condemned. The executioner; the blade; the last-minute reprieve; the gasping breath and the rolling sky above you and the thank you, thank you, thank you, God.

Love: It will kill you and save you, both.

-Lauren Oliver, Delirium
