Together Again

Together At Last Blog Vs

Sometimes inspiration for photos comes purely from my wonderful sponsors. I got my hands on this new decor from Backbone (the luggage, seats, clock, and lamps) and new immediately what I wanted to do. This picture was a labor of love, as finding clothing to match the time period was a chore. There is some out there, but a lot of it is not made for the mesh bodies of today. Here’s to hoping for some more vintage events soon!

ON HER:
[[ Masoom ]] Amy Bento Gloves- White @ Uber | Belle Epoque { Claudia Hair } Blonds (hair is edited) | The Secret Store – Lulu Vintage Dress – Rose (only in standard mesh sizes but I’m wearing it with maitreya Lara) | fri. – Bobbie.Pumps (Pearl)

ON HIM:

Putting It Into Practice

Snapshot_001 copy1

Yesterday I spoke about being kind to others because you never know what is going on behind the avatar. I wrote that item before I went to work for the day. I work in a hospital clinic and later in the day someone came in for treatment that I knew almost 30 years ago.

She was a supervisor at a factory I worked in when I left school as a temp agency worker. I was 16 and she was probably late 40’s, early 50’s then. She was feared by everyone, the temp staff and the full time permanent staff alike. She was not a nice person and made everyone’s life as difficult as possible…and yesterday…she was a shadow of former self. She didn’t remember me. She was quiet, withdrawn and nervous. I mentioned to her while she waited that I had worked with her in the past. We talked for a while about people we knew, the place we worked and reminisced about it. Her eyes lit up, she laughed and smiled. I didn’t mention the bad stuff just spent some time talking to her generally.

It struck me again, all the time she was being difficult when I was 16 what was going on in her life behind the scenes. It felt good to forget that fear and annoyance with her from years gone by and be the one with the power to make a difference to her day in a positive way.

One of the other things that made me feel good yesterday was finally getting over to Less Than Wicked to take some pics and checking out the items at this round of Tres Chic

I’m in the process of decorating my new house…it’s a long process with so much other stuff going on with MadPea Celebrity Auction and the launch of Peatonville just around the corner but I had to find somewhere for these gorgeous autumnal items from Serenity Style, available at Tres Chic.  Perfect for the rustic Fall look these Autumn Wood Blocks also come with the ground leaves that set them off adorably.

Off to work again now and looking forward to what today has in store.

Everyone is Fighting Their Own Battles – Be Kind

Snapshot_005 copy copy

One of the things I love most about our Virtual World is that we come across so many different people from different walks of life. I find that SL often breaks the generalisations and prejudices that we might have had about people. I know over the 9 years I have been part of Second Life that my perceptions have changed…I hope I am far more open-minded and tolerant than I was and I always considered myself to be a very tolerant person in the first place.

I have lots of examples of this having worked and played in various communities over the years and one of the biggest changes I have seen has happened under my own nose.  6 years ago almost I hired a female avatar DJ to work at my club. She insisted on using a voice morpher which did cause a lot of snickers and giggles from people. Of course people made assumptions…quite rightly as it proved, that this DJ was not in fact a female in real life. A couple of years in this DJ was unaware one night that their voice morpher failed, just for a split second, and several us were able to confirm that it was a male voice. No one said a word. To us, she wanted to be known and associated as a female and we were fine with that. It was her SL and she could be whatever she wanted to be.

For one reason or another the DJ left my employ but came back a few years later and asked to rejoin the team. I said yes, but not with a voice morpher. The voice morpher is unclear and distracting, I said, and besides we all know you have a male voice. By this time I also had several other dj’s whose avies didn’t match the voice and it really was no big deal to anyone. The DJ was surprised we knew, shocked we had known for so long and I think mostly pleasantly surprised that she hadn’t noticed any change whatsoever in how people related to her.

Everyone has things going on behind the avatar that others may not know about. Some might, but most won’t unless you are a person that shares everything with everyone like a daily edition of a newspaper. I’ve been reminded of this today as I read Facebook and find out that someone I know has been dealing with the decline and now passing away of a parent to cancer. This person knows full well that they get a fair amount of criticism from some quarters for how they interact with others sometimes. My writing that won’t be a surprise. But, reading that this morning really made me remember the adage ‘Be Kind to Others, You never know what battles they are fighting’

Have a wonderful Thursday everyone and treat people how you would like to be treated today.

She’s a Black Magic Woman and She’s Trying to Make a Devil out of me

witchy woman

This is almost a part two to my earlier post there was just so much awesome stuff to tell you about that I had to share the love over 2 posts! I also had omitted to thank my friend Marc for his help in putting together the scenes in my last post so I wanted to rectify that.  I’ve known Marc for some time now and recently have gotten to know him a lot better, he’s been a total star helping with my pics, blogging and coming in super handy with a MadPea mini-crisis I had earlier today. I’ve had some awesome things happen to me this week and discovering the depth of his friendship has been one of them.

I am really enjoying using my TMP Classic head more often now and getting used to the using Stylemode to achieve different looks for my avatar. Today I am using the brand new eye tattoo appliers from White Widow available at ON9 and also from White Widow, the Altar tattoo which is new at We Love Roleplay…to be honest I’ve not taken this tattoo off for days…I love it!

Everyone loves to have a lil black dress they pull out for those occasions when you need to slip into something drop-dead sexy and fitted to perfection and if you have been to C88 already this month you may have seen the ISON Occult dress I’m wearing for this post. The dress is sold separately to the jacket but you can mix up elements of the two for the desired look. Fitted for Maitreya and Slink this is THE dress to shimmy into when you want to dress to impress.  Matched up with AlterEgo Leg Fade v2 and these absolutely gorgeous Samantha Booties from fri.day that can also be grabbed at C88.

Witchy Woman!
