I’ll Lose Myself In A Fairy Tale

Lose Myself

Fall is quickly approaching, unless your live in my imagination in which case it’s already here and colors abound!

I am so excited to enter the season with these little guys from Mish Mish, you can find their friend at the Arcade

which opens tomorrow! They are so sweet, little Rocky here knew that my fall was going to be quite lonely so

he pulled out a magical book chocked-full of fairy tales to read to me. And this gal nestled in my hair is

Willow, shes loves to snuggle almost as much as I do!  Perhaps I won’t be so lonely as I thought this autumn.

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.

O Children…

O Children

Hey, little train! Wait for me!
I once was blind but now I see
Have you left a seat for me?
Is that such a stretch of the imagination?

I’m Tired

I'm Tired

The past two months for me have been exhausting, I shouldn’t be this tired at 28 years old. I should be out being social and happy and shiny and bright, but instead I am sitting at home planning another doctors visit, and wondering what blood tests they will have in store for me. I am luckier than most, my diseases don’t make me hurt, and for that I am grateful, and I just have to keep reminding myself of that. I just have auto-immune diseases, my body is trying to destroy my thyroid, and I have celiacs disease, and apparently now it’s trying to destroy my cells that create insulin for my body. I have blood tests almost every week, and I had an MRI done yesterday which proved to be added stress I didn’t actually need because it only revealed a microadenoma on my pituitary gland that they weren’t sure if it was really a microadenoma or just cell cell debris because it was so damn small, but because they are doctors they err on the side of caution and so I will have another MRI in 6 months to a year. Why am I telling you all this? Because I need to get it out, I need to bitch and moan and be weak for just one day, I need to not be ok with everything that’s happening for a minute  and I need to feel sad because I am so tired of being wonder woman and going through my every day trying to do it all with a smile. I hate that any of this is happening, I hate that I had to give up all my favorite foods, and sugar, and I am so fucking tired of salads I could scream. I just want to be healthy, I want to stop feeling guilty because I feel like I am robbing my husband of a chance to have a happy healthy wife, I want to be the healthy daughter my parents hoped for, I want to be the friend who isn’t always tired and sad on the inside. I want to remember what its like going through an entire day with out having something to cry about. Today I am not ok, and I am not sorry for that, because tomorrow I will be fine again, but today is my day too feel sorry for myself and to feel angry that I am sick, and to be tired of being tired.

Old Cape Cod…

If you’re fond of sand dunes and salty air

Quaint little villages here and there…

Old Cape Cod

Fifty Linden Friday was just awesome this week, so much so I am gonna have to split up my posts!

The idea for this photo popped into my head the moment I saw this skirt from Elate, and with my upcoming RL move to a coastal town I had to run with it and then the flamingo from Zigana just completed it. I can’t ever express enough how grateful I am to the designers who put so much thought and imagination into their work, you all really inspire my imagination and help create a magical world to live in, in SL.

Adaline on writing…

I use to think that in order to be a writer you had to constrain yourself to certain rules, that poetry had to have have a text book flow or it couldn’t be poetry. Oh how wrong I was, and how much time has taught me, the simple act of writing makes you a writer, a poem can be three words or thousands,  it can be beautiful or ugly, meaningful or random. I feel that we all to often put constraints on things,  art, in all forms, is what you want it to be, you are the creator, it’s god, you breathe life into what ever you put your heart into. I’ve learned that not everyone will like what you write, and that what ever you do should be good enough for you, if it makes you smile, that’s enough, YOU ARE ENOUGH, anything else is a bonus.

Peace, love, and warm tea – Adaline ♥

Mornings…

Good night Sweet love, I’ll fly through your dreams like a dove.

Just Close your eyes and there i’ll be, Forever and endless like the sea.

There I am a silhouette to trace, a figure u long to hold in your embrace.

The image is fading the day is nigh, so out of your dreams I know I must fly.

But wait… I am awakening how can this be? Ahhh… it was MY dream of u wanting me.
