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 Truth and for some reason it just reminded me of being underwater and following the advice of a pretty awesome fish named Dory.

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.

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.

Prowl/River

How do we fall in love harder than a bullet could hit ya?
How do we fall apart faster than a hairpin trigger?

I first heard this song in a choreography video of two kids from the Kinjaz Dojo dancing a Galen Hooks intensive and it’s stuck with me ever since.  It’s gloriously intense, sensual, provocative and powerful. And while the original video and song (of course) take my breath away, the choreography video featuring Galen Hooks’s dance just drives home the power of the beat and the beauty of the song. It’s actually what inspired the pose for this blog.  Now to go blast the song a few more times before bed. Ni ni all. 😉

Oh! Before I forget, here’s the choreo video I was talking about (not the kids’ one but the original one).

Don’t Sit on the Protons!

I was rummaging through my closet and found this awesomely galactic dress from Sn@tch and quipped to my little sister that it made my booty look … waaaait for it …. OUT OF THIS WORLD! *badumbum tssss*

Don't Sit on the Protons!

Giggling at my cleverness, I remembered this field trip my other sister had gone on to the planetarium and though it best to take my place among the stars!  Except…I first learned that what I was sitting on…was a proton.  Maybe I shouldn’t sit on all that energy! 😮
