Vintage Spring

I am very excited this evening, I’ve just seen on the weather report that it will be warm on Sunday. Considering the lock down we’re all under, I will be in the garden on Sunday cavorting and frolicking like a mad old woman. I had friend suggest I take up gardening. I’m more of a murder than a grower, but I will enjoy copious mugs of tea and some outdoor reading instead. Bliss ❤

If you aren’t already aware, the Bunny Bop Hunt 2 has started and runs until the 14th April. Consider this 14 days of chaotic, mad hunting – without any clues – just eggs that move about the sim. Believe me when I say, prepare to derender, reduce your graphics settings and get frustrated. However, also be prepared for a lot of fun. Full details are in the TR Events Facebook Page HERE.

On that note, I am going to enjoy my weekend and relax. I hope you do the same lovely people. Take care of yourselves and be happy x

Card Games

All card games are games of chance, one way or another. There’s always an element of probability involved as you shuffle and cut the deck. Then you begin to play. You may win. You may lose. You may become frustrated and stop. But, you always play. That’s the key thing. You take that chance. You run that risk of failure to try and succeed. I read a brilliant quote yesterday “be brave enough to fail at something new”. It resonated because failure is a temporary state if you keep trying, but if you don’t try then it becomes permanent. Don’t let that fear control who you are. Play the game. Be brave. Embrace what comes your way and live ❤

Keep it together.

Sometimes the contrast between SL and RL makes me chuckle. Here SL Wynn stands. Perfectly coiffured hair. Makeup intact. Heck the cellulite is non existent. Alas, RL Wynn wishes her wardrobe was as well organised and the house impeccable. On a plus, there isn’t any naughty art on her walls. We can forgive SL Wynn that indiscretion! Or can we? 😉

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!
