two of me? or is there more

 

 

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.

Awen 2008This 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.

when is fantasy real

China at Wash sale 4.3.17_002

AT home I have a recliner, but basically I sit around with my feet up, and my whippet is never far..  .

Yup I spend a lot of time sitting at my desk, working on the computer, or doing something with my paints and stuff.   In this picture, I was trying on shoes.. I did go an buy them. (some things never change)

q mermaid 4.7._004

I watch programs that take me underwater, and show me creatures that live in the sea.  Except, in this case, I was swimming underwater, my avatar was swimming with mermaids..  ah ha!  that could be a bit of fantasy… but… I was there, via my AV .. I was the avatar and the mermaids and other swimmers were friends, it was a benefit to raise money for a charity RLF  (Relay for  Life)   hmmm sounds like a familiar event.  we were all there visiting in real time.

q mermaid 4.7._001

I am the cute one ( sorry E) Siamese cats are just that much more adorable.  Especially the Dinky avatar ones. =^_^=

Now, true in the day-to-day world, I am not going to put on  a sea witch outfit and jump into the Ottawa River, or the St. Lawrence. (river that divides some of Canada from the USA)  but my friends are from all over the world, and we really do meet and chat in-world when these events take place.

We wake up every day, and often we are always doing something within a certain mile radius of our home base  With the social media blossoming like it has, we get to stay in touch with so many friends, and their friends, whether they live close to home or not.  Golly gee, now they even  have to warn us about “fake news”

So…… I ask you again….  when is fantasy real? =^_^=   gives a Shirley Temple smile, and skips off the screen.  (for now)

chasing the Mad Hatter

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_008.png

It all started out innocently enough. I heard about a place where there was a possibility I could run into, or meet up with the Mad Hatter, and if really lucky maybe Alice herself.   had to crawl through a door to do that, and fall down a big hole, but I was game.

Dentelle comes out to play 4.1.17_002

Once there what had started out easy enough, was proving to be a big confusing, there were no road signs, in fact, there had been a note earlier in the game saying I should follow the path.  And it would be more fun if I had my settings at night.. but you can see, I wasn’t that brave.. I kept to travel in the daylight.

I went in to explore the first building I found, it was empty, but fully furnished I was able to warm myself by a roaring fire.  I wasn’t tempted to rest on the bed.. but I did sit a spell on a chair in what appeared to be a bedroom with a lot of books.

When I found my way out of the big spooky house, I sat for awhile hoping that I would be given a sign, or someone would come by… no one came.  I did meet a guard at the entrance to the red queen’s palace, but she was no where to be seen.  I dared sit on her throne.

I made my way over hills, and through a huge valley of coloured mushrooms, I could hear activity, but didn’t see anyone.  When I came across the tea party, no one was there, all the desserts were out, and the tea still hot, but not a soul in sight.

The windmill was beckoning with its welcoming lights at the door, before calling it a night, I thought I go explore.  Sigh.. a woman’s work is never done.. I had to mend and sew without any proper light before I could go to bed.

Meanwhile, while I was out exploring, Little Q was at home enjoying a night by the fire, with not a thought in her head to leave her cosy home

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_001

No two people use “time” in the same way.  The trick is to find what is “right for you, and make time to do it.  Every day we get to create our own “chapter and verse”, it was a grand week-end.  Now, we have a whole week ahead. Happy start of the week everyone.

Q got a new hairdo 4.2.17_004

Discovery

Discovery

As an artist I love to discover the artistic creativity of others who share this passion. In SL last night (Second Life) I found bridge, it was late when I came across it, and the sim I was on was experiencing the night cycle. I turned my settings to noon so that I could glimpse what I would find today when I plan to return…
A bridge is always an invitation to explore. But look. see what the artist has done here, one one side of the bridge one is in a fall setting with all the wonderful bright colours of fall. When I took a peak on the other side of the bridge, I saw that the winter wonderland had arrived.
Today when we get back from our hoped for drive (so the dogs can have a proper run in the dog park in Morrisburg) I’m excited about the possibilities of some great camera shots.
For those of you following my latest adventure in SL, I started out thinking I’d be a neko then that changed, and I bought a Possat avatar, I quickly learned that this new society I was entering had/has many many faces. The artistic need in me emerged and my inner self has been challenged to put a visual expression to just “who” Asia is. (name of the current avatar)
I will save the musing on the creation of physical representation of who I am for another blog, suffice to say, the lessons I am learning with this experiment, is that I still have an ego that is healthy and functioning. =^_^= at top capacity.
This is where I currently am in my transformation. A new friend I met yesterday (Elle a stunning furry with a number of different looks to match her feeling and mood of the day) gave me LM (landmarks) for places to shop for accessories to my AV (avatar) and clothes that are made for the “Furry” communities.

Come on now.. how can you resist those eyes….=^_^=

Just deciding who and what you will be is fun, reminds me of when I was a preteen and loved living in a world of fantasy, dress up and designing clothes for my dolls.  now I’m the doll.            smilePencil
