Baby I’m Perfect…For You

I have a host of things in my inventory from a time in my SL that’s a big blank to me. So as I stand here looking fashiony, I’m going to mention some things and it’s neither a cry for attention nor an excuse. It’s just you see, back in the fall I missed a lot of things.

In the course of trying to keep a handle on my inventory I keep finding things that I can’t recall ever getting. I’m beginning to worry that lovely people who I blog for might think I don’t love them, or didn’t like their things. This is probably likely as I tend to blog daily but my madness is without reason usually when choosing what I blog. I’m telling my story of those days, and so if something got passed over, alas it often stays passed over.

I was trying to think, some time ago, how I had possibly missed an event. How is it I didn’t attend? It was a truly loved event, filled with creators I admire and not one I’m likely to miss. Upon further review I realized- it was the fall.

In the fall you see, both of my parents died.

They had been sick, and within two months I found myself an adult orphan and there was a time when even if I was logged in and blogging, I simply wasn’t here. I was here, but I wasn’t present.

I don’t recall this dress or if I ever blogged it. In fact, starting September 1 I went on autopilot in both lives. I stayed there for months. I did my best to stay plugged in, to focus and do the things that were required. I have blogged a ton. Some of it was sincere, some of it was me phoning it in and I’m sure you noticed that.

I vowed when the new year came that rather than make random goals and resolutions I was simply going to be. Being is a huge thing. Being takes commitment. Being involves being present and you must actual participate in your life for it to work. I vowed to own myself, and know my worth and stop making emotional investments that were bankrupting me. I am determined to make investments where there is a return, and in those – I will make them deeply and with my whole self.

So this is me saying thank you for coming along with Gidge these months as she tried to recover. Thank you Winter, who reached out of a years long silence, across a sea of potential enmity to comfort me when my days were the worst. Thank you constant friends who never left me and were always there, even when I just needed nothing but to not be alone.

I will never recover, I will never heal.

But I am here, and so are you. And that’s pretty damn awesome.

8 Years Later

This blog has existed now for 8 years. That’s a long time in SL blogger world, probably even longer in SL Fashion Blogger world. I forget sometimes why we’re considered part of the old guard, until I look through the feeds and don’t know who the hell anyone is.

I’m glad we’re still here, and I’m glad you are too. I don’t know what we’ll be doing in the next year, but I suspect shoes, hair, earrings and clothes will be part of it. And skins, don’t forget skins.

Thanks for reading us all these years.

That bear is strategically placed because I’m not wearing panties and HEY- YO yeah, vagina.

Today You Can Do Some Do-Gooding With Your Lindens…

My mother would’ve said that if Cajsa jumped off a cliff, that I would follow her. That’s entirely possible, as when Cajsa takes the time to pour her passion into something I know it’s worthy, and it’s touched her. When something touches someone you love and care about, that’s worth a moment of your pause.  Continue reading

The road is long, with many a winding turn

The road is long, with many a winding turn
I do not know Brandy Maltas (Kalli Birman in Second Life®). However, I know a few things about her. Most urgently, I know she has cancer, a second recurrence of metastatic uterine cancer that has spread to her liver. Secondly, I know she must be a kind person because people care about her and are trying to help her. From the event information, I know she is a single mother of three who is trying to do her best to survive and make it through this battle so she can see her children grown. Lastly, I know that I hope people will support The Road Ahead, an event to support her struggle, before it closes on January 1st.
