Digital Art

Digital Art

I think we can often overlook how beautiful art can be. It’s easy to do so because there is so much that surrounds us.

I often stop and look and just appreciate what I see and just think wow! Digital Art in Second Life is one such part of creation that I look at and each time think wow.

I appreciate the time and creative thought that the person behind these works must take to bring these ideas into our virtual world.

Any form of artistic creation makes our world a vibrant backdrop. Enjoy…..

There’s always a story to tell

There’s always a story to tell

I’m sat here on my sofa after attending the Second Life Book club. Sadly I was there in spirit rather than hearing presence as my earphones are broken. The reason was my house mate was watching a film so it’s rude to sit there with the computer blasting away on loud speaker.

That’s ok as the great thing about the book club streams are you can listen to them later if you missed them at all. So there’s always a plus there if you look for it.

I’m considering my list of to do things now and I feel I have not enough hours in any one day to do all the things I want to do. That’s pretty much summing me up at the moment. A head full of ideas that need a mind map to plan them!

The best place to do it would be by the lake relaxing in a teepee hut with the water trickling away behind me as my head gathers and I write each thought down. Very much like my virtual image here.

I actually have a novel in my head. It’s been there for many years. The actual first sentence is the challenge because at what point do I begin.

That has been my dilemma for as long as I can remember, also the manner in which I write. That may require some work I’m all too aware.

The novel is to be about a girl who travels through life never knowing where she fits and where she is headed. It begins in childhood with a family background that is not usual. Not conforming and full of moments of fear and at the same time love.

One day I’ll begin. Just not yet. I’m not ready to tell that story till I know the ending.

Let’s discuss

Let’s discuss

The elephant in the room.

There isn’t one really but made you look. I’m pretty speechless today. Never mind the news we are in a further total lockdown.

I agree it’s needed. There are frankly people out there who behave like stupid and don’t care.

But hey who am I to judge?

I’ll put this here. I woke up today with a throat that is like razors and I can barely swallow.

Is it because I spent the night snoring and hurt my throat or have I picked up something?

I’ll let you know later today.

But if I’ve picked up anything. How? I don’t go anywhere. I have been in lockdown many months and haven’t had a social bubble at all.

I’ll leave this here, the housemate. Who doesn’t follow the guidelines. This is as simple as that.

Please don’t assume I have Covid because I’m not saying that. However what I am saying is every single person has the responsibility to think about those around them.

Start thinking. Because basically I shouldn’t be catching anything at the moment. Even a common cold which I’m assuming this frankly is.

Imagine

Imagine

Let’s pretend we are already starting the summer and we are all out and about and life has returned to normal. Whatever normal is. Let’s just believe it and it will come.

Ok, I failed to mention that reality has it raining right now and I’m patiently waiting for a grocery delivery.

One of the things I love about life is we can take moments and make the best of them. Turn winter into summer if we want. Imagination is amazing like that. As is use of technology when we choose to use it.

Last night was one such moment. I spent the night doing something else with a lovely friend and had the best fun. Met new friends and we just had fun!!!!

My RL friends don’t understand virtual friendships and finding fun in a new way. After a year of lockdown you would imagine they would by now understand, that in time we need to consider the future. What it means and where we may have to go.

I would say that many of us have discovered the future quite a while ago and loneliness can be lessened by connecting with people.

You don’t need to be in the same space as someone to laugh, cry and feel appreciated. I love my friend as he is the loveliest male human I know. Well aside from my family humans.

We have never met. But we talk all the time and at the same time give each other space. He is an ear to my whines and low moments and I hope I am to him. That’s friendship. Simple.

So today although it’s cold, miserable and raining. I feel ok. I feel content and each day looking forward to time with my children and friends.

In the meantime I have my VR friends who one day I hope to meet because they have given me so much and for that I appreciate each one of them.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone out there. Whether you celebrate or not, I wish you all s as wonderful few days.

I’m taking time to enjoy a hot chocolate in the real world as well as the virtual. Why not.

Lots of films and chilling time.

But I’m now taking a few days away from blogging and so to give you some viewing pleasure I made a few videos for the Christmas period just to bring a smile.

I released all but one of them last night and so here they are in no specific order.

Outfit details below.

We can’t predict

We can’t predict

I’m feeling a little sad today and not sure how long this feeling is going to be for.

A lot of things lately are very unpredicted and we take each day as it comes. Today in south east U.K. we started day 1 of a Tier 4 lockdown.

If you want to know what this means, feel free to go read Here

There will be no Christmas in each other’s homes and for me this hurts incredibly.

I’ve spent the past nearly 9 months following the guidelines and to the point I denied myself a lot even when the rules were somewhat lifted. Believing if we all did our bit then life can slowly return to near normal. The belief that Christmas Day I had so much to look forward to. Seeing my children and my grandson.

This is not going to happen. We cannot mix for the foreseeable next few weeks and I’m terribly sad inside about it.

Some have “support bubbles”. I do not.

Because I live in a house share situation. If one person is mixing outside the other cannot create their own support bubble.

I never had a choice in this because the person who rents the spare room met a boyfriend, does physical activities which include mixing and apparently their “mental health” needs to do this.

Well today my sympathies are completely gone. They’re gone for every single person who chose to ignore guidelines and live their best lives during a pandemic. They’re gone because of the selfish actions of others. Including my housemate.

My decision is postpone “Christmas” for when we can. We can still have it another time.

I’ll make the best of a few days break over the holidays and catch up with sleep, films and maybe spending time on myself a bit.

I’m inside the saddest I have ever felt. Doing the right thing didn’t work because if others don’t, then your actions are wasted.

Christmas is important to many people. Not for the religious observance etc.

It’s important as it’s a time families get to come together and just spend time when for many months they cannot. This year seems more so important.

Anyhow it is what is is, the best we can do is find a way to make the best of what we have at our fingertips.

My story in Second Life will be even more so poignant this year. I plan on the Christmas get together in 22nd December. But it may be this year I’ll be with others in our virtual world, spending time on Christmas Day.

A little bit of the Bali experience

A little bit of the Bali experience

My mate Rosie Helendale has created a gorgeous destination for all to visit.

Honestly gorgeous and I tried to do a sneaky video last night under an alt account but she caught me in the act!!! Clearly I’m not very good at disguising myself when my alt resembles Isa! Doh me!

I’m not going to prattle on when you can instead watch the video. So click below and enjoy.

Countdown till Christmas

Countdown till Christmas

Happy Tuesday one and all from a rather exhausted woman in reality. I think my body and mind need the holidays to arrive pronto.

I’m so tired that once I let myself relax finally I know I’ll be asleep for days. The cat, have I mentioned the cat!! Bondi my ball of fluff, love of my life. His fault.

Every single night he is like a clock. Pounces into my chest to let me know he is awake and ready to play. Honestly he is trying to murder me I am sure!

The perfect crime, who would suspect the beautiful blue eyed handsome pussy cat?

Today’s pic is a freebie top from Entice from their Christmas calendar. Deets below.
