.. in this year to come ..

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are
making new things, trying new things, learning,
living, pushing yourself, changing yourself,
changing your world. You’re doing things
you’ve never done before, and more importantly,
you’re doing something.
                                    ~ Neil Gaiman


As 2017 begins, we find life and the world in a precarious balance – the political scene in many countries struggling; terrorist activities still at play; war tearing apart lands; anger and discord abound.  It is a struggle to find our own personal peace within during times such as these.  But it is important that we strive for positivity; that we peer through the clouds for something that makes us smile.  Maybe it is the puppy at your feet or the little child down the street or is it a smile from a stranger or even an agreement with an enemy?  We need to do better, be better and help our children, family, friends and those we mentor follow in the steps of positive approach.  When someone says something negative about a gender, a race, a sexual preference, an immigrant – try to diffuse the negativity and move the needle to a more proactive and equal position.  We will never agree with everyone’s opinion but shouldn’t we open our minds, ears and perhaps our hearts to try to understand why there is a difference of opinion?  We should strive to find our own peace amongst the chaos. As the golden rule says – “do unto others as you would have them do unto you” (Matt. 7:12).

I wish each and every one of you a blessed 2017 – a year that you find happiness and love; a year where you achieve your goals – big and small; a year that allows you to overcome the low times and find the good each time.  Find your peace and surround yourself with those that compliment and help you be better.  *hugs*

Fantasy plays a significant role in our Second Life existence.  Whether we flit about as fairies, jump around as animals, have teeth that shine like vampires, or re-enact the story of Gor, the fun and excitement of fantasy roleplay surrounds us.  Not all of us roleplay, in fact, I rarely do. And I’m a rather benign roleplayer as I’ve never felt that I could excel at what would interest me the most – para-roleplaying. But I still enjoy the world of fantasy and the events that bring some beautiful and interesting clothes, poses, props, and more to help us re-enact just about any story.

This month I found myself walking around the Enchantment event and then over to The Secret Affair.  The theme for this round at Enchantment is Thumbelina.  I remember being a child and reading about little Thumbelina and wondering just how a girl could be so small. I’d wonder how she made it from her little acorn bed, nearly marrying a toad’s son then being pushed to marry a mole she escapes on the back of a sparrow to a land where she finally finds her prince – just her size!  Upon their wedding, she receives wings so she is able to happily fly from flower to flower. Thumbelina met many possible perils, but stays sweet, giving and helpful – such the life of a fairy-tale girl the size of my thumb.

For the Thumbelina round of Enchantment, ROQUAI brings a pose prop that is beautiful, fun and perfect !  This pose prop is an oversized flower and comes in white, pink, and red.  There are 5 pose options and the flower will also give a full perm shape to help your avi fit the prop perfectly.  I also stopped by The Secret Affair and found this cute little outfit from N-Uno which works perfectly with the Plastik Wings I found in my inventory and the cute hair from Tableau Vivant found at this month’s Collabor88.

.. spring bursts with easter ..

It’s spring fever. That is what the name of it is.
And when you’ve got it, you want —
oh, you don’t quite know what it is you do want,
but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!
~Mark Twain

The naked earth is warm with Spring,
And with green grass and bursting trees
Leans to the sun’s kiss glorying,
And quivers in the sunny breeze.
~Julian Grenfell
