I wandered around Sansar the other day and was struck by it’s amazing beauty. I’ll post about it and share soon. It reminded me, however, how lovely our own virtual world can be. It’s easy to forget.
I thought I would show you a pic of my lazy summer vacation to share, and I left it on default windlight to boot. Here is our pretty SL – with no edits, just raw from my screen.
It’s pretty lovely.
House: Barnesworth Anubis Monhegan house – Collabor88
Car: KEKE Vintage Roadster – Collabor88
Grass: Keke – Wild Allium – COLLABOR88
I looked across the lake and found that Cajsa has tinted a new house from Barnesworth Anubis that you can pick up at Collabor88 to a striking RED color. I’m so in love with it that I’m envious I didn’t think of it myself.
It was rather lovely to wake up to, I have to admit. Continue reading
My great-niece recently rescued a couple horses from a kill pen, the third generation of horse rescuers in my family. Kill pen horses are usually sold for pet food because they are considered problematic, untrainable, vicious and dangerous. They usually require a level of training most people just will not invest. In time, though, they can learn to trust and be trusted. If you want to see the evidence, see my great-grand niece cleaning this rescued horse’s hooves just two weeks into training…and the foundations for a fourth generation of rescuers begins. It was thinking about them, the work they are doing, and that two other nieces are doing, that I thought I might take this month’s house from Barnesworth for Collabor88 and set up a farm. I tinted it, one of the things I love about Barnesworth homes.
Epictetus wrote in the Enchiridion, “The things in our control are by nature free, unrestrained, unhindered.” We control our own actions, words, opinions, what we like, what we don’t like, and what we want. If we stick to what we control, he suggests, we are free of restraint. It is when we try to influence the things outside our control that we are trapped. It’s good advice. The difficulty is figuring out what we can control.
That’s been on my mind a lot. There’s a lot I don’t like happening, but what can I control? I can choose despair or resistance, that’s up to me. I need to focus on what I can do, not what I wish would happen. So even though I feel like kicking more than an exercise bag, I will instead focus my mind and my heart on resisting despair.
The advent of the amazing world of BENTO and the release of Lelutka’s SIMONE Bento head has brought one of my favorite shape makers out of semi-retirement. The world has changed and now we can all be ourselves again, with a little help from our friends in my case. Continue reading
If there are any pieces at Collabor88 that are MUST HAVE in your book now’s the moment. The doors will be shutting for a reset and November goodies will be raining down on us like mana from heaven.
Or something. Continue reading
