Music is food for the soul

I love music. Listening to it on my walk to work, in the car; if there isn’t anything to watch on tv I’ll pop a music channel on and knit to my heat’s content. It’s an integral part of my daily life. I adore attending live music events and am signed up to a bunch of newsletters. If I see a band I like the look of…that’s it. I’m there. I’ve been going to gigs by myself for years and I love the freedom that comes with it. It’s my experience, it’s my way of connecting with other like minded people and sharing something…tribal…with them. It touches my soul and nourishes it.

In the last couple of weeks, I’ve been DJing at one of my favourite clubs in SL, the Twisted Cork. It’s been baby steps so far but what excites me is the prospect of sharing something I love dearly with like minded people. It also gives the Boss a break from my incessant IMs asking for song requests. Now he can just tell me “play it yourself” and I can! He’s been my mentor through this experience and I’m enjoying learning a new craft. He jokes that they’ve ‘created a monster’ and maybe they’re right. But, somehow I don’t think so 🙂

If you’re ever at a loose end, come listen for yourself: Tuesdays 1-2.30PM SLT – my 90 min rock block at the Twisted Cork.

Enjoy x

‘Elfed Up

Dare I suggest it? Dare I utter the words…those words that start with the letters “C” and “D”? Usually in my household those words are banned until December 1st. I refuse to acknowledge what the shops have been ramming down my throat since August….”Christmas approacheth lady, and are you ready?” In a single word “awww hell no!” Ok, that’s three but you get my drift!

One thing I must confess to enjoying though at this time of year (apart from the excuse to eat cake and drink sparkly fruity wine), is the fun jumpers that the stores carry. I didn’t realise til this year that it’s actually a ‘thing’ to raise money for charity on December 15th (http://www.nationaluglychristmassweaterday.org/). So, you never know: this year I may well be purchasing and wearing mine, all for a good cause. I know I’ve started early with my pixel self, but my real self may have to join in on the fun too.

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.

You make your own luck

I don’t know if there’s such a thing as luck. I tend to say you make your own luck in life. I’m not going to wait for something to fall into my lap; I work and keep persevering until I achieve my goals. Having said that, there’s nothing wrong with taking a little break during all the work, enjoying the sunshine and relaxing. If I happen to find a four leaf clover while I’m resting, I’ll make sure to carry it with me. Who knows? Luck might exist after all.
