Welcome to a collection of pictures and writing inspired by time spent in Second Life

A new home in Ashmore

This is a piece of background writing for a new roleplay character of mine. Ro… Rowena. Ro sat in her cabin and allowed the night sounds from nature outside to provide the only music to the evening that she needed. It had been a long, but refreshing day. As her thoughts flowed, she was surprisedContinue reading “A new home in Ashmore”

Lemons

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 haveContinue reading “Lemons”

  • Subtle
    I remember a time when make-up in SL was applied to the skin you wore… and you had one version. In time it was exciting when different versions were included in a bundle of system skin options. Fast forward manyyyyyyyy years, and one of the things I have LOVED about my LOGO heads for wellContinue reading “Subtle”
  • Overlook
    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. IContinue reading “Overlook”
  • Hold Tight To Your Calmness!
    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 bestContinue reading “Hold Tight To Your Calmness!”
  • Josie
    This is Josie, the new head from LOGO. She’s going to be on sale at the Skin Fair which opens in SL tomorrow, and for which LOGO is one of the sponsors. The event runs from 13th to the 29th of March, and for the duration of the fair Josie will be on sale forContinue reading “Josie”
  • Pink
    Much of my time in SL over the years has been spent indulging my love of words roleplaying. I spent many years fluttering about as a fae, and always felt my avatar needed to look very distinct from… ‘me’. It’s no secret that I love to see what people create in SL, and have veryContinue reading “Pink”
  • A Backward Glance
    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 beContinue reading “A Backward Glance”
  • Silent Thoughts
    There are times when it’s almost impossible to find words to go with a picture. It doesn’t mean my mind is silent… oh no, not at all. It’s often when my thoughts are in a jumbled state of turmoil, that the rambler that I am can’t seem to order them to make any sense. OddlyContinue reading “Silent Thoughts”
  • Green
    I do love this time of year. It cheers my heart to see the signs of spring just starting to appear. I have always loved spring… well to be honest there’s something I like in each season, but the ‘newness’ of spring, and the promise of warmer days ahead (even if they are a longContinue reading “Green”
  • Lipstick and pearls
    Even the most simple of items can draw attention. Often the same thing happens when I look at a picture on Flickr, and I ask myself where I might be able to get such an… item. If that object is still on sale somewhere in SL, all I really would like to know is whoContinue reading “Lipstick and pearls”
  • Travel On!
    I freely admit that one thing which annoys me on ‘competition-based’ shows on television, is when contestants are described as having been on a journey through the weeks of it all. It irks me, because life is a journey for us all, regardless of whether lived in the public gaze for a portion of it,Continue reading “Travel On!”
  • Know yourself!
    It takes time, and life, to truly get to know yourself. When young, I thought my life would be completely sorted by the time I reached the age I am now. How wrong I was! Each year that passes… no, each day or week that passes has the potential to turn things on their headContinue reading “Know yourself!”
  • Spikes
    She carefully chose exactly what she wanted to wear for him. She always did! The sparkle-encrusted pasties covered her nipples, and nothing but them. She couldn’t help but smile as she admired her form in the mirror, and how her high-waisted pants hugged her hips. Turning slightly, she sneaked a glance over her shoulder atContinue reading “Spikes”
  • Calm And Coffee
    There’s nothing wrong with being selfish, well… just as long as it’s the right kind of selfish. I am speaking of that self-centred guarding of one’s own happiness and peace. I don’t ever advocate treading over others to get what I want. Neither do I ever think it’s a good plan to make things betterContinue reading “Calm And Coffee”
  • Magic calls
    It’s there on the edge of your dreams that magic calls to you. She weaves herself into your senses and calls you forward to join her in lifelong adventure. This is the Jolie head from LOGO, with the included Alabaster skin and makeup. The Ilvanya ears are also from LOGO: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Eventide%20Far%20East/177/116/33 The ombre enhanced lipContinue reading “Magic calls”
  • Grateful
    I have been in a mood of deep reflection for a little while now. I think part of the reason is that I am trying to make sure not one small blessing passes me by unnoticed. I don’t think this is a bad thing to add to my refocusing this year. In many ways IContinue reading “Grateful”
  • Careful what you wish for!
    Eva sat in the small café building nursing a hot chocolate. It had been weeks since she’d fled from Paris, arriving in this small town on a completely different continent. She hoped she had taken enough of a circuitous route to lose any record of her travels to any who sought to find her. SheContinue reading “Careful what you wish for!”
  • Breakfast, beauty and bloggers
    I am one of those people completely susceptible to good blogging! chuckles My major downfall are good blogging pictures about decor and interiors. I seem powerless to resist the ideas they sell! 😉 I can’t decide if I just never grew out of the idea of decorating a doll’s house, or if I am reallyContinue reading “Breakfast, beauty and bloggers”
  • A place for fae to dream
    Oh I just HAD to write something to go with this picture. I am now in my thirteenth year of being in Second Life, and I have to say that its charm and attraction never lessens for me. The main thing which draws and keeps me there is… creativity. Back in the old old olllllldenContinue reading “A place for fae to dream”
