Absinthe at Midnight

I’ve never been much of an absinthe drinker, mainly because I don’t like aniseed. However, after the level of stress and work this week I’m tempted to give it a try! Thankfully I have a few days booked off work next week and I aim to make the most of them. Sadly, real life commitments have other plans for me. But I shall try to overcome, preferably with a glass of something strong in my hand ūüėČ

You raise me up….

The internet can be such a powerful tool. I’ve had two experiences of it recently, both in a positive and negative light. The positive experience happened quite by accident. A friend had posted a picture very similar to these leggings and next thing I know, they’ve been made! An amazing example of people coming together, initially in a humorous way, but creating something fun in the process ‚̧

The negative experience was hearing that a friend continues to experience trouble with her blog on a social media platform because people appear to be targeting her. The issue? Having an opinion that is different to someone else’s. Part of the brilliant thing about living in a democracy is being able to express reasonable opinions and not live in fear of the ramifications. Many people don’t have that luxury. Perhaps we need to remind ourselves that while a blog may be merely pictures and words to one person, to another it’s a creative and mental outlet that has real meaning. Be nice, people. Honestly, this negative behaviour only speaks volumes about the person you are.

Hidden in plain sight

Sometimes, when people say they’re ok, they aren’t. When they’re asking you if you’re ok…..what they’re really asking you is “ask me if I’m ok.” They’re looking for someone to realise that they’re hurting and reach out to them. It could just be a conversation or a joke shared to break the ice. It could be a kiss, an affirmation of love and being wanted. Don’t lose sight of them; these people who are hidden in plain sight. Reach out and show them that they’re loved.

Insert meaningful title here

One of the things I really enjoy about blogging in SL is the photography. I enjoy experimenting with windlights and shadows to see how it affects the ‘scene’ I have in front of me. Do I want it to look moody? Do I want a light effect with extra ‘gold’ or ‘blue’ in it? Do I want shadows or not? Sometimes it takes me a while to put the picture together; sometimes I have moments of quick inspiration and BOOM it’s there. That’s the one. I’m ready to publish. The ones I’ve enjoyed the most are where it’s been effortless….everything has flowed and I look back at it all and think “yes, this feels and looks right.” Bit like life, really.

Urban Fitness….No Pain, No Gain.

 

How often do I hear those words gasping and staggering through my head as I venture to the gym three times a week. “No pain, no gain. That arse isn’t going to work itself.” I wish it would! Point a shrink ray and make the magic happen! Until that special day, I’m dragged to the gym where I sweat over weights and on the treadmill, daydreaming of chocolate donuts and strawberry milkshakes.

27th May 2017

Poor Kitten managed to get herself into a spot of bother and tabby wasn’t being much help. He was more interested in washing his paw. Kitten frowned “what’s the point of bringing you on escapades if all you do is hold me back?” Then….the lights…the sirens….and Kitten knew: it was time to jump!

25th May 2017

When Kitten is feeling playful, she may crawl towards you, the look in her eyes telling you all that you need to know. When Kitten is happy afterwards, you will hear her purr with satisfaction.
