Lost in the Backyard

“It’s been too long
Don’t think I’ve seen you smile at me for quite a while
And we’re too busy doing things
We haven’t noticed what’s missing
Where’s the fun we used to have?”

~ Natasha Bedingfield

I think sometimes we forget that we have to embrace the childlike parts of ourselves in order to survive being an adult and doing adult things.  Especially when we feel a little lost.  We should embrace that fearlessness we once had as children, be bold and brave and simply…let go.

I Think I’m Doing It Wrong…

Ok let’s do real talk for a moment:  A long while back, I was taking a yoga class for the first time in my life.  We took to a resting position which most people just call “lie on your back and breathe,” but in yoga terms is called “Corpse Position”.  THERE IS A REASON THIS IS APTLY NAMED SO!  I’m a very top heavy woman IRL so THIS was not the best position for me to be in! My boobs were literally trying to roll OUT of my bra and on to my neck! I almost died in yoga class!

That being said, I figure I can try yoga again…SAFELY…in SL. Especially since I’m getting married and want to be fit and tight in my wedding dress. I see the yoga ball and think to myself, “okay…this can’t be bad. It’s a ball…c’mon!” So I figured eh…why not…

Yeaaaah…I think I got this wrong! And now I remember why I hate yoga! Screw this…I’m going to go have some fries and a frosty at Wendy’s.  I’ll just have to get a bigger damn dress. I’m out!

Relax, Relate & Release…on the Nile

Shot on location at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bazinga/13/225/2405

So after an amazing night partying with with my fellow Sorors honoring my sister Stevie’s 10th year in Second Life, we decided it was time to exhale and relax…on the Nile…

2017-02-25_020

If you have never been to The Nile  [A Second Life Relaxation Experience], it is the most wonderful experience!  For one to two hours, you get to experience yoga, tai-chi, aerobics, African dance and Indian dance. LP Kidd (same name inworld) has managed to capture a tranquil audio, visual and physical experience that will put your mind, body and soul at ease.

Be sure to dress for comfort. Since this is a relaxing experience, don’t come in jeans or anything tight…you want to be able reaaally stretch those limbs. When you land, you can also get yourself some winged armbands to become one with the experience. Step on the footprints and join the session and off you go to live and enjoy the experience of yoga on the Nile. And if you’re not quite ready to join in, there’s also a few drums available for you to sit on and join in the musical serenity.

Held once a month, this is an event you can look forward to that’s relaxing and FREE. That’s right…FREE!  If you want to know more about this event, please login and join: secondlife:///app/group/9486e007-13f7-e231-61c8-ac6616443a23/about

Awaiting the Thaw

Shot on location: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Faerie%20Tale/110/121/23

Pain manifests in my forest as cold, a freeze unlike anything we have ever known. This pain depletes my essence. A child of the forest I am…and we were slowly succumbing to the cold.

2017-02-06_002

Mama Caru, mother of the unicorns took me, hoisted me to her back and I felt her warmth flow through me. Mama Caru knelt before her family at our fountain…hooves crossed, head bowed.  “Rest, child…” she cooed. “Tomorrow we will tend our forest, make her stronger and await the thaw…”

“Will we ever recover? Will earth and I become renewed?” She nodded slowly, bowing and whispered, “as soon as it thaws, child.  But for now…we will wait.” So we did..

Dream a Little Dream…

2016-05-21_014

Sweet dreams til sunbeams find you
Sweet dreams that leave your worries behind you
And in your dreams whatever they be
Dream a little dream…of me

This song has stayed with me most of my life. I love it so much. Every version of it seems to be so different that I can’t help but enjoy a lot of them.  My all-time favorite version, though, is the pop version that Mel Torme & Micki Thomas did in the movie by the same title, where Corey Feldman danced for the popular girl he was in love with (the acting was HORRIBLE, but then what did we know at that point in time. LOL). I really just loved the movie because the underdog…gets the girl.

But this version that I recently found…just brought me back to the love I have for it in its most soft lullaby version.

Anyway, it inspired me to try my hand at photoshop and this outfit from Twisted Glam (now available at Out the Box, one of SL’s newest shopping events) just really made me want to do it that much more. Anywho, I love love love this outfit! And paired with these wings…I felt like I was floating on a cloud.

Anyway, off to dream…

Ciao for now kiddos!
