Sakura

On my way to a friend’s event this past Wednesday, I was walking through this garden and thought I’d take a selfie.

It’s so beautiful here; peaceful.  The scent of sakura in the air simply confirmed it’s spring.  Well, time for me to head over to the event!  Sayunara 😉

Sunday Best

2018-03-18_007.png

I remember watching Steel Magnolias and there’s this line where Anell (played by Daryl Hannah) got a bit fussy about what she was going to wear to church and Truvie (played by the incomparable Dolly Parton, STILL one of my faves) says to her, “God don’t care what you’re wearin’ long as you show up!”  That line always tickled me because there was a truth behind it.  God (or however you choose to address your higher power/guiding force) doesn’t care as long as you worship/praise in their name.

My mom would more than likely disagree with this one.  See, when I was little, my mom would send me off to church with my neighbors.  I would always get dressed in my Sunday best and she would give me a dollar to put in the offering plate, sometimes two. As I got older, I had stopped going for a long time until my mom at one point felt that I needed to go back and I didn’t have a choice in the matter. No, I wasn’t a juvenile delinquent or anything like that. I had just committed the cardinal sin of “losing my religion” before I was bound to the person I “gave my religion” to…legally. Anyway, at that age, my wardrobe was a bit more lax; but still respectful. Even if I had tried to wear jeans, she’d tell me no and change.  For her it wasn’t about showing out; moreso showing respect to your body and the house of the Lord. After all, if you couldn’t be respectful enough to dress up for your Savior, you must not have respect for self.

Lately, I’ve been missing my mom and little things she made me  do that I didn’t see the point of; one of which was showing up to church in your Sunday best.  So when I saw this dress, it made me think of that line and those moments when I would see all of the churchgoing ladies who get gussied up to simply go to church (or the grocery store or anywhere, really) and chuckled to myself as I put it on, getting ready for my Sunday.

It’s funny the little things are what I miss the most. Things that made no sense that , depending on the day and the level of noise in my head, make more sense now that I’m older.

Just Keep Swimming

2018-02-27_003The land of flesh and bone just doesn’t seem to want to give me a break.  If it’s not one thing, it’s another. And it has quite frankly stunted my creativity and desire to blog when I get inworld. So much has been going on of late that I haven’t really had much time to anything in SL of late aside from escape.  But then you receive something that sparks a moment of creativity and you just have to go for it. So in my escapes, I received this glorious skin from Soul and for some reason it just reminded me of being underwater and following the advice of a pretty awesome fish named Dory.

2018-02-27_004

No matter how discouraged she was. No matter what happened, she just kept going and eventually she found her way. I guess the moral of the story is: life can hand you some pretty odd curve balls at times.  But when you get them, ya gotta be like Dory and just keep swimming! 🙂

Is This The Place?

For weeks she had been trying to locate her target.  Finally she caught a lead.  Hesitantly, she entered the suspicious looking building, her stomach in knots.  “Is this the place?” she thought to herself.

2018-01-02_004

She followed the instructions up the stairwell and took a deep breath before beginning her final ascent up the stairs. Though nervous, she had to finish this. She had to know that this was where she was supposed to be.
