Yes, the trucks in this picture are carrying the trees and lights needed to decorate homes, but this yeah more than ever, I am feeling a great need to find that feeling of inner warmth that Christmas brings. I am not speaking of the shiny plastic, shallow, gift-driven materialistic craving for an over-accumulation of ‘stuff’. … More Bringing Christmas
Today marks the thirteenth anniversary of the day I joined SL. Thirteen… years… in… SL!! I will unashamedly say that I am profoundly grateful of that time and space in my life. SL has provided the mental buffer zone to troubled times in my life, but has also afforded me the luxury of stepping out … More Endless
Let the crackle of flame and the glow of the stove spreads cosy warmth as the evenings draw in. I have to say I truly love the decor that is around in SL at this time of year. I love that some of the items I like to use have been deep in my inventory … More Ponder

There seem to be so many variations on the phrase “When life gives you lemons…”, and I don’t think anyone would dispute the fact that life seems to be hurling lemons at everyone in the world right now. Well… I want any of you reading this to know, there’s not one single thing you have … More Lemons
I honestly couldn’t think of what to call this picture, or writing… so settled upon ‘Overlook’ as that is the title of the place it was taken. More of that to follow… I don’t get to spend as much time in SL as I used to, but I do find that I neeeeed it. I … More Overlook
I am one of those intensely annoying optimists. Even when everything seems to be going to shit, I desperately try and find some hint of silver lining. Life and the world has become truly crazy in varying shades for all of us, wherever we are… and yet… it seems to be bringing out the best … More Hold Tight To Your Calmness!
So much is always said about not looking backwards as we travel through life. I very much agree with the advice not to remain in a place mired in past mistakes, or the burdens placed by the words and opinions of those no longer with us as we travel. True, the focus should always be … More A Backward Glance
