Making electricity
You can feel it in your mind
Oh, you can do it all the time
Plug it in and change the world
You are my electric girl …”

Warm, summery welcomes to a bright new week, my loves! This week will be a quieter one for words, I suspect, but in all the best possible ways. Usually my ‘deeper’ posts are stoked and provoked, stirred and yearned, from places of either nostalgia and memory, or thoughtful disquiet. That’s not quite the right word … think of a calm pool of water that has been disturbed by a drop of a stone, sometimes feather-light, and other times weighing a ton or more. When my mind stays calm and rested, there just isn’t as much I’m compelled to say. Ah bless, that makes me sound either enlightened or stoned, haha! Neither of which is the case I’m afraid, but I think you’re pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down. I just feel … happy. Blissfully at peace. So I’ll just let the clothes (or in this case, the delightfully cheeky Sharkini by TETRA) do the talking. I hope you’re all having a marvelous summer so far. Lots of love! ♡

Happiest of Sundays, dear ones! I’m tip-tappin’ my fingers like they’re on fire to try to get this up in the wee hours of the morning, as my parents are visiting today and I, well … may or may not have left the cleaning and sundry until the very last minute. Procrastinator: who, me? Well yes, yes indeedy. But technically isn’t it their fault since I’m the lovable and faultless offspring? Yes, that works for me quite nicely! ♡

When I put on the Khloe dress by Ricielli, I loved the iridescent, deep blue-violet-silver color that really shone with materials enabled. It gave me a bit of a futuristic vibe, so I went to a place I’ve been meaning to visit for years but never have: Insilico! There are several regions under the Insilico banner, so I chose the North one at random and only made it about 20 feet from the landing zone. (Story of my life lately!) This picture was kind of a quick edit and perhaps my not my finest work, but we’re always our own harshest critics, hey? I still love the spacey vibe, and I definitely plan to visit again and explore further. And if you’re jonesing for a mood-setting tune to go with this pic, the heart-thumping “End of Line” by Daft Punk from the TRON: Legacy soundtrack was my inspiration.

Spring Haze

Posted on Updated on

Some days, my mind is stirred up with many things to say, and others find my thoughts softly settled within a gentle haze. I took this picture a few days ago, but it perfectly matches my mood today: thoughtful, thinking, musing but nowhere near melancholy. The lyrics are more pensive than I’d like, but the song has been haunting me as spring meets its gentle decline here in the States, and the pre-summer dawns beckon blistering sunrises that will soon settle into months of 110°F+ days. But today, I feel warm for all the right reasons. I hope you have a beautiful weekend ahead. ♡

“Well I know it’s just a spring haze,
But I don’t much like the look of it
And if omens are a godsend, like men, breezing in …
Certain these clouds go somewhere,
Billowing out to somewhere …
Uh-oh, let go, off on my way
Unseen, this eternal wanting …”

Happy new week, lovely friends! I know I’m a day late; I’d actually intended to get this post up over the weekend, but time has been spiriting away from me faster than a freight train. It’s my goal to get a queue of pictures and posts done this week so I can take a breath again; if you see me in-world and I’ve got my Busy Mode auto-response activated (such brilliant feature that I think may be exclusive to Firestorm), please don’t take it personally! It’s just me trying to get mah blog on; either that, or I’ve mistakenly left it going and I’m tabbed out of SL browsing pictures, which is entirely something I’m guilty of doing. (Flickr baby, I can’t quit you!)

I would be sublimely happy if I could create a clone who would do all my mundane RL worky stuff, whilst the original me spends hours on end looking at all the lovely photographs the SL community creates. And it must be said, those pictures are brilliant for marketing purposes. Every time I see something I’d like to buy, I bookmark it with the intention of checking it out in world or on the MP when time allows. The last time I peeked into that folder, I had about a hundred entries. Yikes! Anyone have a cloning program that can also produce Linden dollars en masse, or perhaps create a generous benefactor with endless pockets who would find great pleasure in seeing me collect all the lovely clothing and accouterments? I think in cheeky-speak they are called sugar daddies (or mamas). Yes, one of those would suit me quite fine. ;) ♡

“I’m more awake than I have felt
A distant fear breaks at my feet
This is the bay, these are the breaking waves
I still know you here …
And I fear I might forget this moment
Let it breathe into the breeze and
If I lose a path already found
Far away, locked away, locked away …”
