A real time moment

A real time moment

I have those moments where I step away from the virtual and live in the reality. It’s a given.

It’s the early hours of Boxing Day as I write this and I’m contemplating the past 48 hours and how different they have felt.

With the craziness of life at the moment, I’ve had my fair share of low points recently. I’ve struggled with how I was feeling about parts of my life and what we are all going through.

One thing I can tell you is I miss humans a lot. Touching and hugging and just being near them. I believe we take the simplicity of human connection for granted until we suddenly find we are without it.

I miss “normal” life. Being free to walk amongst humans, brushing past them in the street and smelling their fragrances and trying to guess the make.

I miss walking in stores and people watching and seeing eyes meet and smiles. Real smiles unhidden by masks.

I missed my usual Christmas this year. But I made the best of it as best I could. I enjoyed me time and watched lots of films and had phone conversations.

I missed hugging my children and spending hours with them. Instead we socially distanced meet up, no hugging because there’s more to think about. Not just what I miss or feel.

That’s what I take away this Christmas. That there’s more to think of than just what we expect, want and had gotten used to. Doing things differently is just the way it is right now and it’s ok.

Although I feel alone right now, I also feel lucky. Because out there are my family and friends. My real and virtually made friends.

I appreciate all who checked in on me.

It’s just a moment in time, a blip. Life will move forward and we will learn something new. We will adapt and make changes.

Warm wishes and let’s look forward to the new year. There’s so much more to come.

Harriet Reports

Harriet Reports

Trying to record my voices in the lockdown is so hard when I’m not alone. Hence this post and video are done later than I anticipated.

I’m seriously going to have to consider a new regime to get things done. A rigid and less casual approach for the foreseeable future.

Ahh the joys of sharing space!!!

I’m guessing this is the reality for a lot of people right now as we find ourselves more boxed in these days.

Still, Harriet has some news to tell you. Harriet absolutely is returning back to location reporting because let’s face it. Virtual life is not in a lockdown!!

Today she is sponsored by Entice as part of their Saturday sale

The dark of night

The dark of night

It’s nearly Halloween and I haven’t made a banger for this year. By banger I mean a story line with all my characters.

To be honest I wasn’t feeling it this year given all the stuff going on and in some ways I wanted Halloween eve to be different. So it will. It will be “normal” tomorrow.

This however is my Halloween for 2020, if you can understand the meaning behind it, I’ll give you a giant gold star!!!

Enjoy….

Save a friend!

Save a friend!

So this is how I feel about COVID right now. Armed and ready to kick its backside from here to kingdom come.

This is also how I feel about the stupid people who care only about their own selves and disregard others affected by this very serious thing going on. I’ll certainly be ready to send you to the other side of my street with my ammunition of water spray. (Clearly I’m not a violent person, but I could be tempted to water spray you!)

Today I found out how someone close to a friend cannot see her mother in a old aged home. but what’s worse is that all in the home are not allowed out of their room to mix.

If people tell me that’s ok then really there are no hearts inside them.

It’s bad enough being separated from your loved ones but to stay in your room and not able to socially bubble with those in the very same home. That’s just purely cruel.

It’s cruel of all the ignorant people who can’t give up their social lives for a bit to get ahead of this.

It’s not great being less physically social , it’s not great not being able to go out and let your hair down etc etc. But seriously are all lives that shallow that people cannot think beyond themselves?

I follow all the social distancing, even more strongly than I probably need to. But I do that because I want to help stop it’s spread.

I don’t want to be part of the problem. I don’t want my children to experience it and I don’t want their children to either.

So I’m ready here, Captain Isa, with my force of pretend people at Cocoon ready to blast this thing away.

Join the revolution, stop the conspiracy theories, just let’s all stop thinking about our social media a bit and start thinking about our lives too and those around us. Do something positive today.

Save a friend.

Another new home

Another new home

Im like a moving butterfly, flying from leaf to leaf looking for my forever home.

Yep moved again!!

The beautiful place Rosie and I had is no more, since a nightclub opened on the other half of the region and basically shoved out scripted this and that and our lag went from perfect to lets walk in treacle. Nature of the beast when you share a sim or a region. You have no control of the out look beyond your own 4 lines.

Rosie had done a great job of the vram police and making sure that everything on the land meant there was no drain on the computer when we walked around etc.

In one week that changed and frankly that was it. Move.

So here I am again showing you a new place but also showing you the old place as a visit down memory lane as I hadnt really got around to the full show off. Clearly I am rambling again which I tend to do .

Funny thing SL is a great place for not feeling too sad when things like this happen as you just each time create your own fantasy and its like going home.

Walking the Green Mile

Walking the Green Mile

When they walk the Mile, it’s the walk to the inevitable.

There is no choice and once that path is set it’s towards the end.

Whatever reasons many have walked that path, the outcome is often very questionable given it’s the finality.

There have been many who have faced that finality that should not have. Innocent but found guilty.

The subject of the death penalty certainly is one that has many different reactions. There is no real wrong or right. But certainly when man takes the decision to kill another for justice, is he always right?

Sergio Delacruz has replicated this in Sansar. All I can say is wow!!!

It’s an amazing build and you certainly should check it out and you will understand the feeling you get.

Now the video….

A quiet moment

A quiet moment

I’m having a bit of a hiatus in extreme blogging for a few days.

Also filming. I just require a break for a bit so I can ask myself a few all important questions about the meaning of life etc etc.

Not really. I just fancy some chilling time.

Earlier I connected up my streaming and went live on TWITCH from Sansar.

It wasn’t exciting to watch but I had to test to make sure it’s working. Tomorrow I’ll test going live on all platforms to see if I have the hang of it.

I’m not sure which crazy world I’ll go in but I’ll just spin the bottle and wherever it lands, that will be it.

There is a reason for this madness, which will become clear in July, as long as I get it right.

Other than that it is time for me to strip off and go under cover as Thelma and lay by the water.

Most know I struggle with doing things the way others do. Because frankly that’s not me. I’m also a bit OCD in that respect.

Sure it would improve my views etc but eh I’d be selling myself down a river and not being true to my own creative self. After all whatever I do, ultimately is because I enjoy it.

Yes sure sometimes I sit and think I wish people noticed what I do and all that. But then I’m not really the type of person who ultimately wants to be in the crowd and be noticed. (Well only for the right reasons.)

But I ultimately do always want to be better at what I do. Don’t we all?

I’m more a quiet soul in many respects and actually value my handful of supporters who genuinely do engage the madness I write or speak via YouTube. Hence the main gift on my 2k subscribers list was so specifically geared toward acknowledging just that.

I am me and I prefer to move in my own direction. In saying that I realise that when doing character vlogs for events people just don’t pick up that where my characters are yakking that they are saying the outfits etc come from. So in order to acknowledge that I’ve decided to still include in my character videos but also do a couple of videos each month showcasing in the style I’m previously known for.

I will be doing this for each event on YouTube and we will see how it goes. I’m seriously not going to do let’s go shopping videos as previously said in one of my vlogs as I’d rather stick hot pokers in my eyes!

I mean it, I would rather.

So I’d be interested to know what you think of the following format and if that fills your boots with joy?

In the kitchen hiding from Stupid!

In the kitchen hiding from Stupid!

Last night I was spending time with my flat mate for her 30th birthday.

She went into her 30th with a pandemic and a divided world. She at the age of 30 is asking me what is the point of living anymore.

I sit here and try and give my positive so much good etc etc etc.

Truth is, where the hell has it gone? Where are the things we are meant to look forward to?

I wrote a post on my rl and sl Facebook walls this morning. I don’t come to my Facebook to see such hatred and bullying . Name shaming etc etc. It’s divisive and is never going to solve the problems. In fact it’s fuel.

There will never be another Nelson Mandela or Martin Luther King again. Go back and read and educate yourselves because if you never learnt anything then, you won’t now.

I’m tired. People are tiring me. History doesn’t appear to have educated anybody at all. Not one bit. As I sit here from a mixed race background having lived in apartheid for part of my life. I sit here and frankly feel humans are the dumbest species on this planet.

The dumbest! It seems you can’t change stupid no matter what. Read and learn.

Remember in this life, United we stand, Divided we fall.

But for now I’m going to sit back and enjoy my view and pretend like my avatar, that stupid doesn’t exist.

ASMR in the coffee shop

Today Beverley comes to you from the Namaste Coffee shop in Second Life as she lives her COVID19 Lockdown.

Beverley has always been a lover of food and of course will always be found munching on something.

There is no logic to Beverley, she is the enigma of her virtual world she lives in and embraces the concept of finding calm, calm so much calm.

Beverley is the Parody of what is. What may be and what could be, if only.
