I was just thinking earlier, about how many faces a person can have.
Our facial expressions often give away our thoughts and at other times can actually mask our thoughts if used like a true actor. So as human beings we can stare at a person, smile and give the appearance of sweetness and light, but behind that smile is something else. Or our faces are like an advertising beacon and simply give away our thoughts.
Written words however once printed, cannot hide or be confused or mistaken for anything other than what is clearly written. So the bare face of a written word is one that glares at you speaks more volumes than words said from the lips of someone with a face masked.
You may wonder what I'm actually dribbling on about.
Remember that saying, sticks and stones may break your bones, but words apparently don't?
Well technically words don't break your bones but the power of the unsaid word, bold and in your face, has a truly powerful effect on anyone who reads them or hears them.
When you look at facebook and you read comments and status updates, do you ever just think, Jeeez did that person think before they wrote that?
I see them every day and I think wow, putting down something in writing on any social media platform that is negatively aimed at anyone is truly something. It not only is something you cannot take back but its something you have left imprinted in the minds of those who read it, but it is also something which you cannot undo.
Yes you may go and delete it, but next time think how many screen shots are taken, how many people share the post, how many interactions would be had over said post. Then think, did I mean for that to happen and did I mean for that person to feel the effect of that?
So my picture above shows two faces, one appears mean and menacing, the other soft and demure, yet which is reflecting correctly the mood? You cant be sure, can you? One person, two faces.
But put that down in print. There is no guessing.
So now this dress outfit from Entice. Its a gacha and has a number of colour combinations. The gacha consists of the dress, collar, wrist bands, panties, garter and stockings. So myself and I decided to show you two of the colours available.

I'm on my daily bus headed to that place we all go to called work.
Apparently you have to attend in order to receive your pay packet.
Crazy I know!
I often wonder why can't I do as I please and still get paid?
I'd happily attend a "do as you please" work place any day. In fact I'd probably skip there.
I think you can safely assume I'm not eagerly going in at the moment.
Times are not great for people in many work places, at the moment.
Mine definitely not great as we count down till Monday when those consultation packs will land in our email systems spelling out the futures that the highly paid little qualification people have come up with.
Then in 5 years from now they will revisit those decisions by different eyes, reconsider and then restructure again using that catch phrase "lessons learned".
I can't count how many times that has happened and I'm sure will continue to.
But seriously let's forget that.
Last night I visited Sansar as part of a testing exercise.
I'm thinking open beta is pretty imminent.
But in the meantime till I can show you, let's check out some clothes….
I keep trying to remind myself to do that. So this morning on the way to my bus I stopped to smell a few flowers. Slugs!!!
Remind me not to touch people's plants when it's been warm and damp!
Yes I know the saying refers to life etc etc.
I just figured why not stop and smell the plants. I walk past these gorgeous gardens every day and often think I'd love to smell the flowers. So I did and then jumped back like the atypical person who had come face to face with a mouse.
Still, I guess the home owners probably got their mornings amusement from that.
Did you know these critters climbed up plants? No, neither did I.
I have always seen them on the pavement but actually never climb a plant.
Anyhow stopping to smell the roses applies to life as well.
Every day I see the same people on my facebooks complaining about life etc etc.
I want to tell these people, STOP and smell the roses.
There is always something sweet if you take the time to look and appreciate it.
Yes it can be hard, believe me I know that full well.
However, we are all masters of our own destinies and have to accept the responsibility of these.
So smell the roses today and you just never know what you may find. I found a slug. But it wasn't a bad thing.
That slug represented something living and vibrant.
