embrace “NOW”

Good morning, did you actually watch the video. My Mother was hooked on old movies, especially the ones with song and dance numbers.

My friends I love them all. Each one of t hem has a different “musical” bent, and personally I love them all. (not at the same time =^_^= .. But I do enjoy the many different “vibes”.

I never did get to line dance, but I have friends that are crazy crazy for the activity. I’ve been going back over some of my favourite tunes, and realize that i do enjoy the foot tapping songs. They are happy and put me in a good mood. Can’t help but get up and boogie or sit in my chair and do some “chair stomping”

Hopefully one of the above clips will have you wanting to get up and move. These past months, weeks and days, so many of us are not get getting out and moving around like we used to. We do need to move, and we need to drink a lot of water. Two things so easy to do, but.. for some reason, we don’t get to follow through on our good intentions.

Embracing the moment, is important now more than ever. We are all in this together. These times of “unknowns”… we need to be supportive of each other. Listen carefully to our friends, and do our best to understand, what their “moments” are really like.

This next song is just because, I really love listening to it.. =^_^=

Thank you all for spending this time with me… I hope one of the tunes, gave you a moment of pleasure. Music is a form a “therapy”.. dancing is “therapy”…. give yourself some pleasure today, you deserve it. Make your own”music”. move in a way that embraces all the love and joys you could ever want. Create your own “NOW”

Don’t allow anyone or anything put you in a box or on a shelf. Life is for living.

Believe in LOVE… if you skip all the others, listen to this last one…

Wednesday night out

on a clear day, we can explore forever

I was drawn to the outdoors today. we are fortunate to live where we can enjoy a huge expanse of open countryside, and the ocean. I really needed a break from the news coverage of the unrest and disrespect for human diversity. Fortunately I do have a place to escape.

Girls night out – DJ Yume is rocking the tunes

The music is loud and we are rocking. Rose in the middle, Yume on the right and yours truly on the left. We are at Tango’s a club that offers a variety of music, depending on the evening and the DJs theme.If you are virtual traveller, this is your ticket to ride. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Larius%20River/21/223/15 Dj. Yume takes the stage on Wednesday evenings and Fridays 7 pm SL time.

plays Tuesdays and Saturdays 7 pm. – 9 pm SL time
Wednesdays and Fridays.. 7pm (Tango’s)

There obviously a lot of choices in Second Life.. Silver works at Smokestack, DJing there on Mondays.. for R & R when we want time out.. we visit Tango’s.. the ambience, and friends there make for a great evening of fun.

Usually entertainment and SL news is in my other blog https://virtualnws8.ca/ yes why not… this blog is relatively new, many of you have been following me now through my adventures.. It is not unlike one of my previous ones, where I blogged, the fashion, and entertainment venues of the virtual worlds.. Music makes the world go round. Like the individuals we are.. our musical choices differ too.

With the pandemic all around us, many of us spend more time in SL these days.. While Smokestack is every kind of Blues you can imagine, Tango’s offers a variety of tunes.. and the personality DJs like to throw in themes.

OH wow David Bowie .. let’s dance. https://youtu.be/VbD_kBJc_gI

wish you were here

No one is sitting still,Yume is just rocking out the tunes, and people keep coming. Its a great night..Please keep us in mind when you next want a night out with lots of good tunes.

Earlier in the evening I was visiting with a friend when we found out it was another friend’s birthday….. a party was happening to celebrate our friend’s birthday… (hey Nick! birthday boy guess you just get to keep celebrating) You betcha A.. we got ourselves over to the party. =^_^=

Life would be plain boring without friends! We are surrounded by negativity, it is up to us to find out own way .. round and past the environment that some would cast us in.

In SL, we are from all corners of the Universe. We gather from everywhere, and simply enjoy sharing time, good music and conversation.

Find the peace/love in you and exercise it every day.

Sometimes we have to deviate from what was to what is.. Artistic expression in a virtual setting, with music to flavour the viewing.

Stay connected everyone, discover or rediscover that “loving feeling”

Enjoy the changes in your life. Things around you are constantly changing with the times. Take on the challenging and new experiences as materials for self expression.

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.

Portrait picture is of Cheyenne

the day before

The day was clear but not bright, still I saw the sculpture of a magnificent tree (the hook).. couldn’t stop, I was on the other side of the highway headed out of the city.

It isn’t all the artificial coloured lights and the tinsel that shouts to me. Joy to the World… its the views I get when I am driving in the outskirts, nature simply being itself, farm land, a farm house up on a hill, the small towns I go through, the decorated verandas and front lawns of the homes. Yes, a red barn against the horizon, even the big silos and the farm machinery sitting waiting to spring into action when they are needed.

Not only in December is it time to celebrate the glory and wonder of the Universe and the diverse and interesting world that has shaped around us, these blessings should be appreciated and shared every day.

People make this world happen. People. We are doubly blessed when we can turn to our fellow woman/man and truly say from the heart, Thank you for being YOU, and sharing this day with me. Makoto.

I did stop to take pictures on my return into the city, but the lighting by then had changed… still I knew where it was hiding… =^_^=

Thursday doors

All the doors and windows are shut and locked,  I want in..

Rocking the Blues -My friend Kira loved the Blues, she built a club so all her friends could share in her passion for the blues.  DJs from all platforms came to share their tunes, and keep us rocking to the many genres of Blues that are played through-out this Universe of ours.  Didn’t matter who you were/are, if you loved the blues, shared in the camaraderie of the Blues Tribe, you were welcome.

I have been away and didn’t know she had taken ill again.  A friend wrote me last night, we will have a memorial played out over the week-end so that all of us that loved her can manage to get in.  All the DJ’s will have a time slot so that you can share in what Kira loved best.. listen to the blues and share and be with friends.

This woman was a rock for me over the many years she has een in my life. Her generosity and loving spirit will always be with me.  Rest in Peace my friend, you were an example to all of us,  This is not farewell, it is … till soon

Today, day 2, PL calendar is    Live each Day filled with hope(this was Kira’s mantra and motto)

Even in situations when you feel trapped with no way out, face every challenge with purpose and enthusiasm and you will always a find a way.

‘Be true to your work, your word and your friend’.  Henry David Thoreau

Happy Tuesday everyone

China, shang-li SichuanLately I have been watching a lot of Chinese Documentaries, learning about China, not the China I grew up with in my imagination. ( I was born in Canada) but historical and social memories, offered up by CGTN.com.  To say it has been a learning experience would be an understatement.

Today a dear friend in Australia sent me this link… Hans Zimmer “light” 

Hans Zimmer  “Light”  (The Thin Red Line)

Composed by Hans Zimmer, additional music by Klaus Badelt & John Powell, conducted and compiled by Gavin Greenaway and orchestrated by Bruce Fowler & Yvonne S. Moriarty.

The sights and sounds of  the video, were so calming, I wish you for you a serene day, that is filled with a light of promise, that will filter into all your tomorrows.

Lucky – Nicholas Brothers

Lucky is a happy clip, I grew up being entertained, we appreciated talent, we laughed shows were designed to delight and musicals were her favourites.  She loved music that told stories of life, love, heartbreak, hope and more love.

Believe.. life is good.  and it will be.
