Watering Hole

Come along lovelies I have found the most incredible place to show you! Gates of Melancholy is inspired from the life and work of painter Andrew Wyeth. It will give you the feeling that you are in a watercolor painting done by this incredible painter.

Photos were taken using the region windlight, and a facelight when needed.

Watering hole in my head
all that I pray is one night’s rest

but those creatures arrive with a thirst they want quenched
and as hard as I fight

Snapshot_027

they still get in
to my head

Snapshot_021

to that watering hole
in my head…

Snapshot_023

But every night one by one

Snapshot_012

all of the beasts I once ran from
crawl out of the darkness and into my bed

Snapshot_016

These vultures of light they must be fed

in my head

Watering Hole

Light It Up

Let me tell you a little bit of what Second Life means to me. It means being able to walk, run, and even fly when my legs fail me in reality. It means being able to dance, and socialize when I can barely turn my head or lift my arms in reality. It means experiencing, and seeing so many incredible things when at times I can’t leave my home in reality. It means getting to spend time with people I love who are far away from me in reality. For me, and many others with disabilities Second Life is truly a wonderful thing that gives us educational resources, a support system, and a bit of a reason to smile on tough days.

I was fortunate when I came into Second Life (fb) almost 10 years ago that I knew people already with experience on what I would need to do. I will forever be grateful for that. For those new to Second Life (sign up link) the experience can be confusing. I was happy to find Virtual Ability, Inc. They provide orientation, training and information facilities for people with disabilities and chronic illness. And, they do a fabulous job of it! Head over to Virtual Ability Island, and check them out.

Never Hit The Ground

A while back I went through a rough time, and a friend of mine sent me this song. I have adored it every since I heard it the first time. If ever I’m in need of a smile, I can always count on this tune to put one on my face and remind me everything is as it should be. I want to share this song with you, my lovelies, in case you ever find yourself in need of a smile.

Photos were taken at The Enchanted (where I am often seen frolicking) using MorningGlory & Calwl windlight

Diego’s Umbrella – Never Hit The Ground

I’ll see ya, I moved on, I let go

I just jumped and got no control
But I’m oblivious as if I never hit the ground

But I’m right here, where I’m supposed to be
And at least for the moment I can smile

“You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you, that’s where I’ll be waiting”

I spent the evening at one of the most majestic places I have been to in Second Life possible ever. Winter Moon will absolutely take your breath away. Use their region windlight, turn the tunes on, and prepare to be taken away to someplace absolutely magical.

Photos were taken using the region windlight, and the photos had to be slightly brightened(but not to much).*

Good Fortune

In preparation for The Enchanted Book Club meeting this past Sunday, I wanted to cozy up and skim through the chapters we would be discussing. I love spending time at The Enchanted reading, and I know you would too. I found this comfy pile of pillows, books, and lamp at Chez Moi, and I just adore it! It has so many great sits, and props. As with everything I have very purchased from Chez Moi, I am quite pleased.
