Good morning, this is an audience attending a stage production of Grease put on by the players of a theatre group in a virtual world (Second Life) It was a full house, standing room only, I am attaching pictures and information on the show for anyone who is interested at the end of this post. You can have a look… https://virtualnws8.ca/2023/03/26/slea/
Please note that behind every avatar is a human being, The performers, the stage designers, costumes, dance routines, all these are worked out and presented to you by creative individuals with a passion to express their creativity to entertain bring smiles and a welcome moment of “thrill” to the audience. In that time, during their performance, we (the performers/audience) were gathered from all over the world.
The co-owner of the theatre company and his team had to have spent countless hours to gather the materials, or build them .. never mind the hours of rehearsal the team building, the set designing, the gathering materials, animations…what a feat. The players are from all walks of life and as I stated from all different time zones/countries. It was A M A Z I N G.
The applause, the audience appreciation was loud and genuine. It was the Makoto and the sincerity of everyone in that moment at that location that made MY day yesterday!! Wow.. to have shared in such an experience…
Put Makoto even into small things. Don’t let things go with, “Oh well” You will have a different outcome if you put Makoto
Good Morning, since it is freezing rain and cold outside, I took to the virtual world to grab a few photos the other day. I posted the lying down resting by an open fire one on Instagram the other day. Just looking at the avatar chilling… squeezed a big sigh out of me… The one on the left is the avatar taking timealong her journey of discovery to dance. The opportunity was there so she took it.
Discover something new today. Have a willingness and an interest, and start your day with excitement.

Dancing is an activity that we do that it is all about the journey .. it is an opportunity to stretch our bodies, lift our arms to the sky, give space to areas in our bodies that have been dormant. It is healthy for us to be active. We get up and move, not to get somewhere but to enjoy the feeling of movement and reconnect with our bodies.
Chilling, taking time to be quiet, allow contemplation (in this example) gaze at the sky, listen to the fire crackling, watch clouds drift by, is that water in the distance, can you hear the sound of a waterfall, are the birds singing, a bee buzzing, allow the mind to drift, wander, if thoughts come, acknowledge them and then let them go… Chilling is making time for YOU.
Explore new thoughts, places, be open to the wonders around you. Do everything willingly and joyfully…
Everyone has their own way of seeing and thinking. there are different points of view and ways of thinking which makes it interesting and creates new ideas. Try to enjoy others’ expressions

Mastering the moods, the meds, the madness that is day to day living – can it be done – you bet it can! Take time today to S T O P whatever you are doing… and just pause, close your eyes .. take a deep breath and slowly let it go before reopening your eyes. When you pause to hold your breath.. be aware of your neck and shoulders.. give your head a little shake and let your shoulders drop.. when you release the breath you took in. Slowly open your eyes.. and viola…. another new opportunity.. it is a new moment.
How many times, how often has it happened, you are so tired, you just want to lie down and sleep… the mind just won’t stop chattering. Ok some of the information may be interesting, and a tiny wee bit may be new to you… but …. it (chatter) just won’t stop … and you are exhausted. What do you do, what can you do… nothing …
Think about it, the more you focus on it, the more attention it (chatter/noise) gets.. the more frustrated/ annoyed you get..

Get up,stop trying to force quiet… do something else, distract your attention, never mind the time, or trying to make something happen that isn’t happening.. Let it go!

Just walking into another room … sit down at the dining room table, have a glass of warm milk, I have a small piece of felt that I put in the back of a small canvas I had lying around that I had not put to use yet, I have five dice that sit there.. I pick them up and throw them.. I get three tries… I t ry for 5 of a kind of course, but I see what turns up. could be I will end up with only a pair .. maybe a full house.. doesn’t matter, it is the distraction, of rolling the dice, hearing them, watching for what turns up etc. A few throws and I’m usually ready to head back to bed.. the cycle is broken, the bed looks welcoming, and 7 out of 10… I will drift off to sleep. definitely I will have a different mind space.
Give importance to listening, looking, thinking, doing and speaking. Don’t be entrenched in your own thoughts … you will not hear or catch the hints/inspiration from others
I’m tucked away in my hidden retreat… listening to the rain falling, the steady rhythm of the drops as they cut through the deep piles of snow in the yard… when I opened the door to let the dogs out, the rain was falling in sheets.. it was a sight to see against the piles off winter snow that since yesterday have lost about half of their height because it has been mild.. and of course the rain is not being kind to the snow that fell over the past couple of weeks.
This location (above) is not known to many, those of us who frequent this little hide-a-way… tend to keep it a secret. Hmmm wonder why! True with all the snow we had, it won’t look like this now, if we trekked in to visit the ambience would still be magical, but very different.
Like… here we are saying goodbye to another year, by this time tomorrow it will be 2023. Let’s move forward with a positive attitude. We have so much to discover and enjoy before we have to “slow down”.
Have a prayerful mid to love yourself and others. Open up your heart fully when praying to God. It will help you sort out your feelings.
