I live in England. I know better than to waste any time of sunshine. Summer is a fleeting, moving thing over here, and one that can seemingly be over in the blink of an eye! My childhood contained Augusts which were long, and baking hot. I am not sure if this is merely my mis-recollection … More Soak Up The Sun
So this picture could really seem to be an exercise to show how to tell when your Avatar is too short, but in reality the meadow grass and flowers were really tall… honestly! It made me chuckle though, and was very much part of what I was feeling drawn to write about today. I have … More Hiding In Nature!
The chance to take just a little more time over your first cuppa.. and wait for it to revive your mind. I always start each day with a cup of tea. Perhaps that is a British thing? Sure, I soon move to coffee, but it really is that first cup of tea which really seems … More Lazy Sunday
Waking to the feeling of having slept well and soundly. Oh to smile at spring-time birdsong serenading through the open window on a breeze which carries the scent of forest and the cool tingle of anticipation at whatever the new day might bring. Granted I live in the suburbs of a city, but albeit a … More Peaceful Morning
So often I simply need to sit quietly and write. It’s often a case of too many thoughts building up in my head, and I have to put them down on paper, or type them on a screen to avoid my head seeming to burst. I find it easiest to let the flow of words … More Space To Write
I have come to the conclusion that my secret to smiles for a new year is to simply hold on to magic. This time of year, or the weeks leading up to it can be one of the best. Everyone seems to smile a little easier… and take those extra moments to chat. There is … More The Secret
For many years now Second Life has added pieces of layers to my daily life. There have been times when I have truly needed the mind space it has afforded me. How much of a luxury it is at times to almost unplug from reality and drift away for a little while! I find there … More Layers Of Imagination
At times my thoughts are running too fast for me to even hope to keep up with them. Sometimes the world spins seemingly too fast for my heart to keep time. I have learned that I need to be kind to myself. At times like these there is much remedy to be found in quiet … More Revive!
I feel like such a magpie in SL. I can’t help collecting beautiful things, especially when I know I can throw them all together and build a place of peace. I do add to my increasingly expanding inventory, but also find that some old favourites are items that I use over and over in my … More A Place Of Peace
Here’s an odd little thing… three people in the past two days have told me how polite, friendly and helpful I am. Don’t frown too hard when I say that I think that’s just one part of my Britishness! I live in a small city and when not deep in a time of pandemic it … More Politeness
