for music lovers

Second Life is a virtual world that can be accessed from almost everywhere in the world. https://www.secondlife.com/ By now everyone knows about virtual worlds, and many of you are familiar with what an avatar is. To move around in SL, you need an avatar, but all that will be explained to you by visiting the SL (Second Life) website. If you are already in SL, then this is the venue you won’t want to miss. SAX on the Beach. https://wordpress.com/view/virtualnws8.ca

Two full days of live music, the musicians come from all corners of the world and all have their own unique way of presenting their music to you. The times they are playing ( you will see the schedule in the virtual news blog) will enable you to schedule a time convenient to you.

China is ready .. she has been at Pacifique enjoying the Halloween venue provided there, if you are in SL you can drop over to Pacifique to enjoy scaring yourself into a very fun time. see http://virtualnws8.ca/2021/10/21/news-october-21/

China taking care of two foolish skeletons who wanted to scare her.

The links I’ve provided will take you to two of my earlier posts that will give you (1) the details of the Sax on the Beach venue, and the Pacifique Halloween themed park. Halloween will run at Pacifique till the end of October and maybe a wee bit beyond.

October is my favourite month… I don’t get to dress up in RL, but in SL I have a blast.

Please pass this along to your music loving friends.. the Sax on the Beach is not an event to miss. Happens only once a year. If you are already in SL here is your taxi.. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Beauty%20Forest/231/36/22 remember there is a lot to enjoy at the event.. wander, explore, ENJOY.

Till soon

Be very careful about doing things you really like .. Do everything in moderation. When you overdo, you will lose your balance.

“I’ll do it later. No, I’ll do it now.” To make progress, do anything while it is still fresh.

oh NO

What happens, is I don’t get to walk, and the birds and the wee animals …they all take time to visit other places in the woods.

Strive to overcome obstacles by changing your mind-frame. things don’t always go as planned. When that happens, try changing how you look at the situation or how you are doing things. The outcome is in your hands.

Its Okay to think “This is where it starts” There is always a turning point. It’s important what you do from now.

It actually worked out.. with the filming crew at the site, it gave me time to come back early and do work that needed doing here at the house. I did catch up with a friend, and we did get to work on a project that needed doing. We hadn’t planned it, but life just presented us with the right ingredients. And had my day not been rescheduled for me, I wouldn’t have had time to have a “coffee break” with another friend. There you go! life is good! Not at all what I had planned and expected, but worked out even better, because I got to share it with friends.

PL Precept # 19 – Begin once you perceive. Faca ao perceber, Actue inmediatamente al percibir.

Wednesday !!!

drudgery

You can get all dressed up, do your hair, pretend its going to be a glamour day, but no matter how you cut the cake, if there is work to be done, or matters to be attended to that aren’t fun… You have to set your mind to the task and get it done.

giving a presentation can be fun, interesting and certainly if it is appreciated .. rewarding

Usually there is always a lot of hard work and effort that goes into putting/pulling something off in a seamless fashion, or presenting a “brilliant” feature documentary. For a brief time we can look very professional and maintain a certain air of efficiency and know how. BUT, we all need down time, and we all, each and everyone of us, needs time to regroup, to be still, to reconnect with our inner Selves.

Catching up and sharing time with friends.. that is IMPORTANT too. Here Alo was visiting with Sister Qu who is the resident hokyoshi (assistant minister) at the PL Center in Second Life. http://www.secondlife.com

The teachings of PL, the 21 Precepts and 21 Principles, are what help us navigate through the world we live in today… Stay in touch with what grounds you… what keeps you mentally and physically alert and positive. Life is too important to squander.

PL Precept # 15 All is a mirror Todo es espejo

PL Precept #11 Always be with God. Confie todo a Dios.

Obrigado PL por me ensinar amar assim Por ver Deus dentro de mim e em qulquer lugar

Thank you PL for teaching me to love, to see God within me, and everywhere around.

From my home to yours – Love now and always

With one thought, “the world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.

another time – another place
a reckless heart
the invitation to dream

Past, present or future, always remember to be sincere and honest. At any time, the place where you are standing at that moment is the stage upon which you must express yourself. At each moment in time, there is sure to be a way to express yourself in relation to your position or status.

Each of the above pictures, I created to be the visual to a story line. I got as far as doing the photos, but never got around to doing the story, or piece to go with them. Years later, and I still feel that I will do it. Time will tell.

moods

with a storm brewing, the lightening angrily xriss xrossing the sky, thunder rolling shaking the window sills.. Moon has lept into her arms for comfort
sisters meet for the first time in months, maybe even years.. their cautious and wary
China attends a get together at the new camp grounds at Pacifique, the music is fun, the tents are up, there is a roaring fire, but not being an outdoors person, China is not at ease with the unfamiliar surroundings
Silver and China attend an early Halloween party, everyone is in costume, the setting is magical, energy is high

We are all experiencing a variety of different moods, opportunities, challenges, whether alone or with friends. How are we coping. Are we actually getting out, meeting up with friends, even family and close friends, have undergone a change these past weeks, and months.

social distancing when visiting, fun, but not the same.. I posted this quote earlier, but I feel it needs repeating.

Treasure each moment in time. Life is a continuation of NOW. Treasure each and every moment as it comes, so that you can live your life as fully as possible without regrets.

photos are from SL, virtual world Second Life. 2nd picture is a rare picture of China and Q, bottom picture it is my dear friend Rhi who is with me. Silver needs no introduction, he is my partner in SL.

behind every avatar in SL is a human being, a creative caring and talented individual who brings the virtual world to life.

IN LIFE… each person you meet, pass on the street, speak to, is the human version of an avatar. =^_^= We live in an amazing world so full of possibilities.

Wednesday – tenderness

when no words are needed
the rest of the world disappears
tenderness is felt, not spoken

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

Jimi Hendrix

Love is the condition in which another person’s happiness is essential to your own.

PL Precept #7

journey continues

detour through terrain scarred with memories of the past
I was uncomfortable with what I saw and heard
the train was there, but simply wasn’t moving
the buildings, the vehicles, everything was there, except for people
then in the distance, I saw and heard the music. It was a bikini skating party! There I was with my friends Nick, Mel, Rhi, Eclair, Chloe, Chey, Sandi . oh someone has her skates on, wonder if mine are with me ..(red one piece) Then the music faded, and I was alone again.
friends were enjoying the night, but for me, I was still in my dream
I turned and headed towards daylight. Another day begins.

Don’t give up! Stick with it, as many times as it takes. Sometimes you want to just throw in the towel and say, “I give up”, but that is the time for you to dig deep and push through. Your sincere effort will invite a good outcome.

Landscapes by Eclair (Pacifique, virtual world SL)

Photographs and storyline Q aka me

Portrait picture is of Cheyenne

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.

Oct.19 evening @ Pacifique_001

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..  .

China trying on new flat boots 2.15.17_001

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)
