Within these four walls

So I’m on the bus now. A little while ago I was sat at home in front of my television drinking my tea and putting my face on to get ready for work.

The news was on and on my screen came the story about the couple from California keeping 13 of their children shackled in their home. Absolutely shocking.

But what’s more shocking might I add is that despite 13 young people basically missing no one noticed or reported something was amiss. No one!!

That bit puzzles me because you can’t just hide a family of 13 just like that with absolutely no one noticing ? Clearly it seems you can.

We don’t know yet the logic of their actions (clearly there is none) but what they are thinking. Were they both mentally ill, drug addicted, drunk or just plain evil.

Whatever the reasons behind it, I think personally I struggle with the fact that people never think to raise alarm warnings when a family of 13 . Thirteen!! Young people are no longer being seen. Are people that consumed with their own lives they just go about their days without thought?

Baffling.

So no flowery blog today because this news item has just really bothered me as a human.

Balance

I woke up a little while ago and was about to leap up in a panic, jump in the shower and dash out of my front door.

Then I realised it’s Sunday and I actually haven’t got work today.

Work has become so all consuming that it’s stealing my weekends because it’s in my thoughts.

Anyone else have this?

So I’m laying here thinking that the balance in work and home life is tipping the wrong way at the moment.

I’ve touched on this before in previous blogs about how much of our lives we spend doing that activity called working.

It seems way too much. So I’m calling for a new work life balance. 3.5 days per week work and 3.5 days per week home life.

That balances don’t you think?

Second life blog turned into Sansar moment

*UPDATE* Ebbe Altberg and some of the team have liaised with Ryan and it looks to be that this situation is on its way to being resolved. *Dialogue is always a great thing.*

I actually was planning to talk about lovely winters thoughts and such like in this blog this morning regarding second life.But standing here at the bus stop reading my feed I saw a statement from Ryan Schultz that he feels he cannot blog at the moment because yet again someone from the lab has dived in wearing size 26’s and done the take it down or else statement. Link to his Blog

Honestly some days I do wonder about folk.

Positively promoting your experiences. And here you go yet again size 26’s and alienate folk. If you consider that experience a secret….shhhh don’t tell anyone it exists and certainly don’t let anyone enter. Simples. Put disclaimers in entering the experience. I’d say that’s logical isn’t it?

Have you guys in your ivory towers put a sign on the logging page for the experience that states No, go away, no one can know or see!!!!

Or have you now taken the decision that ultimately you are going to take down every single blogger and vlogger just to show you can and scare monger?

Be clear about what you expect . Don’t hide it in the little print. If an experience is not allowed to be seen, common sense is a disclaimer at the teleportation of wording that says so.

Be thoughtful to people who visit. Sansar needs the promotion and here you go and upset a person who promotes it daily, often a number of times a day?

I’m thinking High Fidelity may soon see a surge of interest. In fact I’m reloading it tonight!

And now for the nice stuff….

Where are you now

Happy Sunday’s. Nothing ends a Saturday night better than a epic mushy song and a woman dancing on the edge of a cliff.

Thank you to Jackson Redstar for his help in fixing an over saturation.

Where’s the YouTube videos?

Well answer is below the blog posts.

I’m not making all you tube videos published because of the direction of travel. I’m still doing them but you usually will find the hud video below the text. After all I do damn well love a hud!!!

I’ve had a few people ask me this, but it is something I did touch on in Coffee with Isa because the entire You tube community don’t want to see me chat about the colours of a hud outfit.

So I’ll either be uploading them into my blog post directly or they will imbed from You Tube and will be dependant on how the video is made.

Let me know what you think because ultimately it does matter what people do want. I’m also conscious of what I’ve been told they don’t want.

Now check this hud out. It’s gorgeous…

Take a break

A friend of mine suggested yesterday about wanting to take a break.

Funnily it’s not something that ever really dominates my mind because on the whole I feel if you are happyish with your lot then you don’t need a break but more so desire a change of scene.

Needing a break always suggests to me, just make a complete change as what you’re in isn’t working for you.

I do desire a change in scene. I’m still trying to work out which scene it is I want.

My mind has many scenes playing and it’s like a lotto ball whizzing around trying to decide where it will stop.

For today it’s the same old scene, on the bus headed to work.
