Room For Love

Room For Love

I’ve finally started putting the finishing touches on my home in Sl. It’s been a process trying to find my groove again but I think I am getting there.

I really just wanted to share one of my favorite bits with you guys and thats this part of my room. I am not a terribly cluttery person, I like a clean look with a few messy bits.

And original art, can I just say that I LOVE original art in SL and I squeed when I got the Adore & Abhor art for the Acid Lily Gallery.  The last touch I put on this room was the

wired love heart from Kuro, it was perfect, that  je ne sais quoi that it needed.  I hope I can share more of my home with you soon, like I said, it’s been a process,

but I am starting to really love it!

Good Enough for No One

Good Enough for No One

It’s hard to explain to people all the ways that I am different,

I don’t process things the way you do I,

I don’t know how to feel the same way you do,

or make sense of it all the same way that you do.

Where the stop signs in your brain remain,

mine have all been sawed down,

a cruel trick by some sick fuck in the sky sitting on a cloud saying hey you,

no, you, you don’t get to be like them,

you get to suffer the pain of trying to love them without understanding them,

you can’t be them so just stop trying.

Yeah sure, we are special snow flakes,

different in our special ways,

but while everyone can at least fall the right way,

I’m falling sideways,

fucking up the flow of the way everyone wants to go.

Everyones getting mad at me and I can’t figure out why,

I thought I had it right this time but theres that word wrong,

hanging around every corner waiting to knock the wind out of me.

No matter how many times I say i’m sorry for something I don’t understand,

I know It will never be enough,

I will not be enough,

because I’m not wired like you,

I can’t read minds like you,

and what I feel is my best,

is like hell for you.

The Small Things Make A house A home

What Makes A House A Home

 

Whenever I have a new home in second life I always think about a line from one of Robert Forsts First poems…

 

“First there’s the children’s house of make-believe, Some shattered dishes underneath a pine, The playthings in the playhouse of the children. Weep for what little things could make them glad.”
[Rober Frost – Directive (1947)]

I think all to often we overlook the little things that enrich our lives, and second life is no exception. We get excited over big releases and tend to overlook the small things that create the whole. My creative style leans more towards those small things, and I always find myself meshing things to set in little cubbies and hang in the odd spaces, the forgotten places that make a house a home. So  I tend to get very tickled when I see friends who release adorable trinkets to set around the house, that make it feel lived in and real. So today I raise my glass to those of you who, like me, remember and enjoy the little things that make a house a home.

Ponder

Ponder

I ponder as I wander the vast halls of memories within my mind paying in kind to each love I pass.

I am slowly easing back into blogging so forgive my short blurbs of poetry,  I am sure as I heal emotionally from my recent upheaval I will get my mojo back and begin to write more and more. But for now I am grateful for whatever beauty comes to mind, even if it’s just a sentence worth.

I Dwell Within

I Have Peace Within I Dwell Within

I am a Quinoa eating, yago doing, stretchy pant wearing pacifist so I would like to share with you some wonderful things I do every morning to set the tone for a beautiful day.

Stretch as soon as you get out of bed, your body will thank you.

Say all the things you are grateful for, out loud, just what ever happens to pop into your head, it could be one thing or twenty.

Drink a full glass of water before you take your shower, it will help lower blood pressure.

Take a deep and mindful breath before leaving your house for the day, or before you venture on to start your day.

I’ve be absent for a while, but for a very good reason, I made a very large move from the west coast to the east coast! It was quite a long drive and finding just the right home took a bit of time as well, but everything is perfect now and I have internet back and I am glad for it! We made quite a few stops along our journey and I was sad at first, having to be with out my creature comforts (first world problems right?) but after a while I kind of grew to love the simplicity of it all, and I found that my creativity had returned, I started writing and drawing more freely again, it didn’t seem so hard to come up with new ideas. I look forward to translating some of these new ideas into SL.

But for now, something simple.

Love, Adaline

I’m Not Ready To Heal…

This week the 50 Shades challenge was more than challenging for me, I just plain wasn’t gonna do it cause for what ever reason my brain rejected the theme of “Sexual Healing”. Usually I don’t think much of it when I can’t get inspiration but when it sent me into crying fits because I couldn’t seem to make it happen I knew something was actually really wrong, because really, who would cry over something like this? I took a deep introspective look inside, and realized some things I maybe haven’t really gotten past and decided that I don’t think I’m ready to heal yet.
