Rainy Day Musings

Freedom is learning to dance in your chains. That phrase has been recurring in my life quite a bit this past week. I look at my self- and other-imposed shackles and I begin to sway….

Sarcastic, condescending, judgmental remarks telling others how they should live or think or feel do NOT make you sound intelligent nor wise. They merely serve to show up the failings in your own character.

On surviving loss in any world:
Shared moments in time
Are now memories of joy.
Grief yields to smiles.

It’s hard to be a parent:
I long to guard you
Keep you safe from harm and pain.
Shelter in my love.

This is my all-time favorite and the hardest for me to remember/live. Thanks to Calli for this one – she has it in her profile picks.
Don’t Take Anything Personally
Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Oh, PLEASE let the weather report have it right for tomorrow: sunny, warm, gardening weather. I long to play in the garden and smell the flowers.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
