Make a Wish

I wonder sometimes what people would wish for if they were given the opportunity, knowing it would come true. One wish, one chance to change something in their lives. Would they make a selfless decision? Something for the greater good of Mankind? Eliminate world hunger? Climate change reversed? Or would they choose something more self focused? All debt erased? A winning lottery ticket? Someone’s heart delivered on a platter? I’d like to think I’d make a selfless choice. However, if presented with the opportunity, would I really be so noble? Would you?

Working on my tan.

Honestly, I wish it was this sunny in my RL right now. While we have the warmth, it’s been an overcast day. At least in SL I can hit the beach and work on my tan. In fact I found a perfect little spot today to catch some rays; my kitty decided to pop along for the ride although she’s more interested in biting my ukulele! Not sure who owns these clothes next to me, but I plan on finding out 😀

So many cocktails.

This time next week I’ll be on vacation. It’s needed, very much needed. I’m not sure where time is going this year but it’s speeding up and I want some back. Before we know it, I’ll be hitting a “big” year birthday and I’m not ready for it. I’m still 35 in my head! One thing we often do on holiday is splash out on the all-inc drinks package. Don’t judge me. I’m not a *heavy* drinker at all. I love the convenience and the variety of cocktails I can drink on the package. So many cocktails. While I’m dreading the thought of packing, the thought of being pampered for nine days is motivating stuff! So, if I go quiet for a little while don’t worry. I’ll be back – tanned and with some weight to lose, but who’s counting? It’s worth it!

Go with your heart.

Or go with your head. Or your gut instinct. Who knows? My head is devoid of emotion; my heart is easily fooled. But my gut; my gut is often right.

Playing with Shadows

I could have also titled this blog post “playing in the shadows” and the message would have worked too. One thing I love about photography in SL is how people can take the same finite resource and interpret things in so many different ways. It’s partly knowledge and skill but it’s mostly how we see things, our ‘vision’ that makes each photo unique. Do we look for the light, choosing colour, fun and optimism? Or do we look to play in the shadows, revealing what we choose in a monochromatic manner? I’m not attempting to reveal the profound here, just open up food for thought. Although, ironically I have literally done that today and shown you how food obsessed I can be!

Midsummer Enchantment Time.

For those who love their fashion, home and garden Gothic, Whimsical, Fae or Bohemian, Midsummer Enchantment has just opened and is packed with goodies to enjoy. The event runs until the end of the month, so you have two weeks to pop along and check things out. There is also a 5L hunt on the sim, so keep your eye out for little purple masquerade masks as they contain little treats. I’ve photographed a few of them here for you. One thing I love about the event is the build and the event organisers always provide perfect nooks and crannies – it’s a blogger’s delight. My scene is within the shopping event itself. See if you can spot it yourself.

On to the essential information…….

The website, with shopping guide is HERE

Enjoy – and remember, the event ends on the 30th June – so don’t miss out!
