Sometimes I am good, and other times, well… I want to play. The picture on the right is of me where I accepted the challenge of wearing a bikini. I was nervous being half-dressed like that, and couldn’t stand still. So the picture is a bit fuzzy, but then that’s ok, cuz you can’t see all my fat and bumps.
These were outfits I made to sell in my little shop. The avatar is a Dinky made by a very talented artist in Second Life (Etheria Parrott) She has variety of dinky avatars to pick from, I happen to be a sealpoint and sometimes a lilac point Siamese.
The creative side of me can spend hours exploring the artist creations of others on the grid, and when not exploring, digital photography.
Q (that is me) can spend hours touring, taking in the sights and sounds, visiting different countries .. and never leave the comfort of my home office. I like being Q, she is fearless, she can do almost anything, she loves exploring and meeting people, and learning about the world around her. I on the other hand, can be a bit of a recluse.
This is my friend Awen who introduced me to designing and building in/on a virtual platform. It was a whole new world, and I was open to the challenge.
Life is unpredictable, our creativity, how we pereive the world around us, and how we want to express our individuality, is all part of a whole. We are blessed by being given a new canvas every day.
Seize the day, make art!
PL Calendar, day 31 Your world will change when you look at things in a positive light.
Everything you encounter is an opportunity for you to express yourself. What you choose to make of the situation is entirely up to you.
*Deus Natureza (Maria Aldinria M.Martins)
Obrigado Oshioya-Sama Por me ensinar amar assim. Por ver Deus dentro de mim E em qualquer lugar.
Thank you Oshieoya-sama for teaching me to love, to see God within me and everywhere around.
*Excerpts from God and Nature, sung in church Sunday, (page)
I can harmonize with you with nature and humankind. I am happy living like this, a rich feeling hard to find. Harmonizo-me contigo, com os homens e a natureza. Viendo assim sou feliz E nao ha maior riqueza
With love and blessings, great the world with your smile and presence.
When we drove by the Chinese Embassy today, there were bright red lanterns, flowers and decorations everywhere, it seemed so festive. In China the Mid-Autumn Harvest festival takes place between September and October and commemorates the largest and brightest moon of the season. It is a big celebration friends and family share moon cakes by the dozen ( see the moon cakes in left hand corner of the picture.)
The Chinese love red, red is a happy colour, the above are Chinese Lanterns hanging in Yu Garden, during the Chinese New Year. The next picture was taken in Beijing during the Mid Autumn Festival.
We all celebrate life in different ways. Lately the gift of life has played a pivotal part in my life.The energy of another human being provides a shaft of energy that oscillates giving wing to feelings and emotions that have lain dormant or have been simply non-existent. Can one die and be reborn. What determines the essence of life, and how it is lived. We are told that life is the process of being alive, during our day-to-day experiences and challenges.
Imagine sharing such a moment with another being, the awe, the speechless wonder that such a feeling can be shared, can be realized, and then released. Today, I saw the signs of a celebration, then later in the day, I felt the elation of an explosion of life-giving proportion, so great that it left me in a state of wonder. Surreal?
