Plurk has too many good ideas.



I was tired, cranky and out of sorts, trying to think of a good title for this blog post, I shared this photo on plurk asking for ideas for a post title. They were no help at all, not because they didn’t help, but but because they helped too well.

Really, how can I choose between Sophee Mojo’s elegant and oh-so-autumnal suggestion of the title “Nothing Gold Can Stay” from Robert Frost’s lovely poem.

Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost

But then there’s Tymmerie Thorne reminder of the commercial we have all seen again and again, “Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up.”

or Frequency Picnic’s suggestion of the immortal line from McBain in The Critic:

And that’s not all. What to do? What to do?

Wake Me Up When September Ends


I will be happy to see the end of this September. It has been an eventful month, one that seems to be unbalanced by a shortage of good news. It made me think of this Green Day song that suits my mood.

I am a firm believer, though, in the power of dressing to cheer yourself up and this tunic from LouLou&Co for Marquis Market is definitely a cheer yourself up fabric.

Flowers In My Attic (not in THE attic)



Please don’t confuse Flower in My Attic with the books. This recent My Attic cycle is a celebration of beauty and the effervescent abundance of flowers. Is there anyone who is not moved by the sheer exuberance of flowers? Isn’t it wonderful that these plants have such a lovely, giving way to propagate? Of course, since I love pose props, I had to check out Whimsy Winx’s latest for My Attic and her attic does not disappoint, though really, someone should pick up once in a while. There are papers all over the floor. I was also playing around with a projector I am working on to sell on Marketplace. It’s not done yet because I am still thinking about whether I have the spacing right. Yes, it’s just 1 prim with a texture, but I can still have creative difficulties like a real creator, hahaha!!





This outfit is from Lacuna and is also for My Attic (the floral shorts could be considered a clue). Because it’s an extra special cool top, you get two versions. This top is peach and jade. The other is jade and peach.  I had to add 2 notches to the gravity on my breasts to fit it, but perhaps I notched them up a bit for something else.

So Many Options Your Head Will Spin plus a SALE!


Sakide’s Delhi dress for Marquis Market is a real head-spinning confection. It comes with a hud filled with as many color options as an ice cream counter. The dresses remind me a bit of ice cream with their ombre colors coming from brilliant fresh scoops of color in 14 flavors. Add the classic summer cut and the great fit and, really, what more could you ask?

Prevention Is Everything


This is full of stuff from Collabor88, including the sign from floorplan. and the dress from League.

There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Well, when it comes to suicide, many times prevention is everything because there is no cure after death. Today is Suicide Prevention Day around the world and I wanted to take a moment to highlight a group in Second Life® that is doing their best to support people who are contemplating or have attempted suicide by connecting them to real world therapy and resources as well as providing information and support in-world. The Survivors of Suicide is a group of about 400 people who maintain an information center and informal drop-in center with group support meetings on Sundays and Mondays.


As you can see there is a lot of information. I dropped in to look around and there’s a room for folks to hang out, a game room and even a little shop to raise money to support the group’s land fees, etc. There were about a half dozen folks hanging out, all very friendly and welcoming even though I was just stopping by for a peek for the blog. I suppose we all know someone who has committed suicide. It has happened in my family. One brother-in-law shot himself when he became so sick with cancer, emphysema and cirrhosis that he could not live with it any more. Another brother-in-law drowned himself when the umpteenth different drug trial failed to treat his depression and his insurance company informed him that he has reached his lifetime maximum benefit and he would no longer be covered by insurance for anything. That is a cruelty of the health care system that will be eliminated by Obamacare on January 1st. The aftermath of suicide is a horrible trauma for families, one that is not really eased that much by understanding the motives and decisions. So this group is doing important work. You should check them out and be aware of what to look for and how to help family and friends who are in despair.
