YaBaDab -A-Do

q-wearing-chaffro

Awen this is not a wombat, it is Q wearing a Chaffro outfit, for the Chinese New Year, coming soon to place near you.

I learned lately that my sisters and I who are real siblings, do not speak the same language. message received, “Moana is too full. Decided to go to la la land”

What I understood, my sister for some reason had referred to herself as Moana, she ate too much of the dinner ( she had sent me pictures of the shrimp dish she had made) and now was taking herself off to bed.  I didn’t know why she was sharing this, she sends cryptic messages from time to time, so I really didn’t dwell on it too long.  However I was curious as to why she had decided to call herself Mona, so I sent back a text, asking her.

She replied to me so obviously my other sister, knew exactly what she was speaking of.. she wrote back 3 words,  Disney movie Moana (she isn’t long on texting or writing)

Ahhh older sister’s light bulb flashed, “so la la land didn’t mean you were going to bed” brilliant deduction Watson, La La Land has to be another movie.

These generation gaps, can be hard on the communication system.

So YaBaDab-a-do to you dear friends… we start another day!  Hur-Ray!  And what a day, freezing rain, on first back to work day for many of the Federal and Provincial government employees over the slippery roads we go.. hi ho hi ho hi ho

meerkat

Q was a Meerkat…The avatar above is a Wynx Tiny found in virtual worlds of Second Life and InworldZ.  For those of you who go into Virtual, Q is no longer a Meerkat but a Dinky, and still a cat, but a Dinky Siamese Cat.  The Dinky line is a product of Etheria Parrott a very talented builder/designer and artist in the Tiny community of RaglanShire. Below is picture of Q in her work studio working on her clothing line .pffft. She has a shop in Raglan and at Tiny Outpost (run by Sylkye Taffetta, who is still a meerkat)

q-working

Life is to be lived…. Live it your way… just be happy doing it.  If you are not happy, you need to revisit your decisions, and make changes.

In PL, (Perfect Liberty) we pray that each day, will enable us to find ways to enhance our time here, and that includes the happiness of others.  We strive for and want World Peace.

clearly, languages are not just words, but our understanding of them… and there-by a means of miscommunications…

Mess of blues

Forgive me, I have had this song on my mind for days.. DJ Phoenix from Nova Scotia played it during his set, and it stuck.

If Blues isn’t your thing I understand if you pass this post on by. =^_^= I am indulging my need to “feel” the music that “speaks” to me.

All this because I got to hear Mess O’ Blues again tonight, in fact twice.  It was like going back for that second piece of fresh baked pumpkin pie with lots of whipped cream.

Tomorrow it could be country blues, or no music at all.  the beauty of enjoying every minute of the day, is that tomorrow will be brand new.  I will wake up eager to see what the Universe will introduce my way.

Music can unlock the doors into chambers of yesterday, or through portals into a totally new dimension of thought.

We move off the treadmill into energies and adventures that will expand our horizons.

portal-iwz_001Right. If only life were that simple..

Oophs sorry, wrong door, and you can simply close it and go to the next one.  It happens more often than we would like to acknowledge.  Another project, another impossible discussion with ?, a deadline looming and we’ve not come to a decision.

If we landed in a bit of a pickle, chances are, we by our own actions  had a hand in lading us there.  Time to stand back and really examine the “door/issue/challenge”.  See it as an opportunity.

vampires-graveDon’t be deterred by how it looks, if you want inside, or to know what is behind the doors, then you will need to creatively find a way to do just that.

fairy-garden-ds10940-mebob2000-on-flickrA door big or small, any shape at all, has always fascinated me, I doubt that will change anytime soon.  Even when I know what is behind the door.  I want to open the door and go inside.  Unless of course it is housework, and dirty dishes waiting on the other side.

Come on, come outside and play..

apologies

nov-10-imagination-island_004

Hi Everyone… my apologies to those of you who have joined our little “group” in the last month or so.  I have been experiencing issues with Windows defender, and my security software.   While away on my last trip, I noted that several new members had joined up.  However when I got back home to have a look and say hello, thank you etc. Some were not to be found, and others caused problems when I tried opening them.  So now I am being cautious.

I welcome you .. in time I will find a way to actually get to your blogs.  Meanwhile, welcome, welcome,  I look forward to getting to know what part of the blogs you enjoy the most. =^_^=

blog-10-12-14_007The month of October is a very creative month. In August I begin with the fall greeting cards, and doing up Thanksgiving one, and yes… I get a head start on the ghoulish and witching ones.  Yet.. I do not do Halloween.  Go figure, I simply like the creativity it brings out in me.  I remember in the days when I did ATC* challenges, my envelopes would be decorated with tombstones, ghosts and “characters” in all shapes and sizes.

Today I was told that our cards will be sold at one of the Craft fairs, by two of our members.  So here I am doing HO HO HO cards. By December I’m doing Hearts and Flowers cards, and working my way into Irish greetings.=^_^=

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

golden-chalice-flower-5sGreetings to you on this lovely sunny day.  The weather has turned a little cooler than it was last week, but I love the hint of zest, that little tang or crispness that has filtered in pinging our hardwood trees with a flirtatious  kiss that starts the leaves blushing and in some case, turning crimson red.

Driving down the highway towards Orleans (Ontario) I was totally smitten by the wide sweeping colours that waved to me as I passed by.  The sun was beaming down and all around me… there was pure happiness in the air.

orange-firecracker-vine-flower-1sThe flowers here are Oli’s from Australia, they too are enjoying this time of year.  No matter where we are on this planet.. what is that old expression… it is always after 5 pm somewhere, if not where we are.  The sun works its magic wherever it is.

So do we….. PL Precept #8, live as the sun.

Music is a venue that brings friends together.  tonight I will celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness at a party, the DJ always plans his events to challenge us in our knowledge of music from the past many years. His eclectic style and library of tunes, means he is “really does ‘ challenge us.. who can name this tune, what date did this come out..etc. (DJ Nick from Michigan)   He will be followed by a DJ from Oklahoma  (Bluelou McGrady) who with his brand of Blues will have us moving and groovin’ unable to sit still for longer than a minute, no matter our best intentions.

When we share our talents, and give freely of our time to inspire and great good times for others, happiness and friendships blossom and bloom.

The venues for these events, the first one is at Pacifique owned by the lovely Eclair Martinek, and the second event is at a down home southern bar/club  Rocking the Blues complete with swamps and alligators owned by Miss Kira Wyldfire, please note, all names have been changed to protect the innocent. =^_^=

These ladies practice living their lives, walking the path of true friendships and welcoming hearts, this is reflected in the people that work with them and the audiences they attract.

pink-begonia-flowers-1sWe all come from different backgrounds, worlds,  places, our histories are different,  our lifestyles could be miles apart, but what we all have in common, is the desire to be happy, and to live peaceful and joy filled lives.  We love our friends, and we cherish those who have stood by our side through thick and thin.

This is Canadian Thanksgiving, the American one is in late November, and the Church of Perfect Liberty, we celebrate Thanksgiving every month, on the 21st.  We focus on gratitude, appreciation and give thanks, for all that we are, and will be and for those we love and appreciate, past and present.

PL Precept # 10   Love yourself and Others

PL Precept #20   Live Maintaining Equilibrium between mind and matter

Love is forever, it really is…

Share a smile today…

the look of innocence ?

44f4c55d7e5ffdaf2e6c9c9ba827d84d

if you are a pet owner

you may chuckle at the reminder of your pet’s look of total innocence

on occasions when you know

that they were responsible for the surprise

you found on your return to the homestead

enhanced-buzz-18358-1383303680-1

the reality, they live their moments,

they don’t plan them,

they just get right into the moment and enjoy it

they are totally baffled by our reactions

to what they probably don’t even remember doing

IMG_20150517_095737472_HDR

a child will react to a moment, they will do so, without even thinking about it

either hide or pose, but whatever they do

they do with presence.  they haven’t learned the adult behavior

of avoiding a response, or colouring it.

when do we begin to change

and  become statistics

with resumes that define our existence

now instead of telling you I love you

I send you an icon

so today, I think

I’ll be an avatar, a dinky to be specific

what about you

how much more innocent can I look

Seems we missed a great time in history., I meet many interesting people in my day to day, many seniors, white hair, gray some stooped, some very active who have kept the same colour for years..so are still brunettes, blondeds, etc… there eyes light up and sparkle when they speak of “the days when”  Some of you, may or may not venture into the many virtual worlds that are now popping up all over, you can access them through FaceBook, either read about them or see pictures friends have posted.

Last night I had the opportunity of visiting a virtual club where a very good friend entertains on Wednesday evening with recorded music.  She grew up with the big band sounds, and she was playing them last night, what a turn out the club had. DJ Yume as she is called in the virtual world,  in the physical world is a modern-day diva, she works, lives and is active in her community, but volunteers some nights to entertain the virtual community.  For two hours she plays non stop tunes of the various eras she has programmed for the evening’s    entertainment. The guests all come dressed in costume to enjoy the party.

Who are these guests, having now spent many many years on virtual platforms, I know many are shut ins, or care givers, people who for one reason or another cannot get out to “kick up their heels”.. they are stay at home moms/dads, young men and woman who due to circumstances find themselves tied to the house, their contact and way of meeting others who share their need for social interaction.  People like DJ Yume, Tango and Peggy the owners of the club, they work very hard to provide the space, and the talent, so that others can enjoy.

Where in the physical world, they can feel invisible… on the virtual platform, they can be anyone they want to be.  Keep in mind that the number 1 rule in virtual worlds… is that kindness is key.. behind every avatar, there is a human being sitting at a computer.  We gather, we play, we chat and have fun… yes.. genuine heart-felt laughter.. there are no distractions, we talk across the miles… we are not invisible.

slow down

Lady in red, is Kyra Wyldfire and the builder of the new 50’s club you see in the first pictures.  She also owns and operates her own  blues club on the InworldZ platform (Rocking the Blues).  It sits on a beautiful sim, of bayou country   Kyra built the 50’s club on the Canadian grid, The Great Canadian Grid.    A very talented woman, a survivor, she manages her day-to-day life, her family and still makes time to come in to share with friends who love and care for her on the virtual platforms.

We are no invisible, we are real.

Spread your wings today… smile… show someone you care…

207df0687ad2dc783be2eb1f0d2a476fGood morning everyone:

How is your day going so far?  I know that many of you are in completely different time zones.  For me it is the start of my day, albeit a late start.  Lately I have been enjoying long fitful sleeps  Yesterday I ran around like a woman on a mission, (that is because I was) I had things to do, people to see, and then a 7 pm Thanksgiving service at the church.

It never occurred to me that I wouldn’t get everything done, I just set out to do it and it all fell easily into place.  However, by end of day, I was ready for my trip into slumber land. I am working on my virtual blog which takes days and sometimes weeks to do because I have to coordinate with other artists.

One of the artists is an amazing  talent, she does shapes and skins for the virtual world as well as clothes and accessories. Even the virtual name she uses tells you she is going to be an interesting person to get to know. (Lush Meme)

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the virtual worlds, everyone entering into a virtual world has to create an avatar for themselves.  Obviously we are all different and our likes and wants are going to be different.

Some visitors to the virtual worlds, don’t really care about their appearance, they get an avatar on entering into the new world, and they keep it, maybe change their clothes to better reflect what they like to wear and personalize themselves. but aside from that they are content to be the avatar that they used to come inworld.  The virtual worlds are full of mentors, people with experience and years in the virtual environment and are willing to help out and put their experiences to use to help others wanting to grow within the community.  With some it is building, creating the architecture, homes,fantasy builds more to do with lifestyles of the inhabitants.

Others, like Lush provide the body of the person (shape, size of your shoulders, length of your arms, waist, hip etc. ) and the skin,(colour or tone of your skin, make ups etc)  The women more than the men tend to want to look a “certain” way, and they are apt to change their makeup, and hairstyles often.  Men do however, like to (most of them)  want to look presentable, once they find the shape, skin and hairstyle they like they are more likely to change outfits for different occasions, but their basic look stays the same.

It is always an interesting exercise when someone new to the world joins us and they being their transformation.  There are many artists in the virtual worlds and some are more creative than others.   You have to look around, you have to try the demos provided.  Otherwise you will look like the person beside you.  In the virtual world you get to build and create what you want to look like.

Now in the day-to-day world, it is not so easy, we are born with our bodies, skin tone and hair colour.  changing is a natural process, nature dictates pretty much our rate and speed of growth etc. And to many it is a life long battle to try to fit in to the “social/fashion norms” or  Photoshop pictures we have put in front of us on a daily basis.

I have to fast today for a hospital visit tomorrow.. That got me thinking of bodies/shapes, and our sometimes out of kilter food decision and choices…. what can I say I got carried away after looking in the mirror this morning.  Hope you survived the visit.  Love you all.

224c2f0f0f0ebf2be5c8d52959b8aba8Sincere apologies to those of you, who prefer my shorter blogs.. Thankfully I don’t have to fast often.  =^_^=  meanwhile blessings all, and where-ever you are, have a super grand day.  Be Happy.

Namaste     –     Oyashikiri

for more on Lush, my virtual blog will be posted later today.
