House Hunting

0821_005

I have been thinking about moving, downsizing from my lovely, but large, 5th Avenue townhouse and have been on the lookout for something marvelous. I think I found it at Collabor88 this month. I mean look at that red door! We need more red doors in our lives.

This month’s Collabor88 is inspired by the Odyssey and I am loving the many interpretations that designers are coming up with. I am fondest of those that are less literal – like this mini-dress from Tres Blah. It was a bit short for my taste so I added some leggings from Maitreya to avoid flashing my hoo-hah around.

So this carriage house from Trompe Loeil appeals to me as a new home. The only problem is that I will have to move. I hate moving – not as much in SL as in RL – but I still like to stay in one spot. However, I am pretty sure I will sign a lease on this place and move in shortly. I love carriage house apartments. When I was in college, I had a friend who rented a carriage house. It was gorgeous inside and the rent was reasonable, best of all, though, it was on an estate – so there were these magnificent grounds that he was able to use – so long as he scheduled with the owners. Lucky guy!

It’s Bandana Day – Take Off Your Hair

It’s Bandana Day 2014, the day we take off our hair in support of those for whom having hair isn’t an option due to illness.

You’ll hear people say us doing this doesn’t make a difference. I get their point. We’re not curing anything, we’re not solving anything.

What are doing it for then? Why do we do it then?

It’s a gesture of solidarity. It’s a gesture of support, of respect.  We’re saying “We’re with you.” This is how we show our solidarity and our empathy.

An example of why/how gestures matter.

I have a good friend at work and she’s going through some tough times. She’s Cuban and we’ve shared some cafe con leches over the years while we visited. I went in early the other day and stopped by the bakery, I took her a guava pastry and a cafe con leche. When I brought it to her I said “It looked yesterday like you could use a treat today.”

She hugged me and cried.

Did I fix her problems? Nope. Did I make it all better? Nope.

But I made a small gesture, to say I cared, and I was thinking of her. And it matter TO HER.

You can still get your Bandana at Hair Fair and 100% of the proceeds benefits Wigs for Kids. They are all dontated by SL residents, creators and bloggers and just regular folk like us.  I hope we light up the feeds today – with a lack of hair.
