Some evenings I sit in silence – my thoughts travel the distant shores
Often it is a brooding silence that haunts me, clinging to me, shouting for recognition
In far off lands, I walk a shoreline where the wind howls and the seas lash the rugged coast
there my spirit roams, the salty air wraps itself around me
the mist gathers me in, and I am free to simply BE -Q
Energy springs from your smile. A smile makes you and others cheerful and energetic.
Perfect Liberty 2021.4
A smile is something we feel inside, a smile plastered on your face, doesn’t mean you are happy – it is the simplicity of smiling from within that radiates from your eyes and your whole demeaner – being happy is an art.
Energy springs from your smile, when that smile is sincere ..
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.
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.
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.
With one thought, “the world” will change. Changing your way of thinking will make a difference on how you perceive the world.
How many of us are spending time waiting. In my area, it seems that everyone around in different provinces or States have had their first, even some have had both of their shots. Meanwhile, we wait.
I’ve tried reading, I was as you know going out and feeding the birds, but now with the change in the weather, they are doing just fine.
Time is spent thinking, wondering when there will be a more balanced approach to how we spend our time, even catching up with friends in person, instead of by phone or virtual calls.
Even having the shot will not mean life will just return to “what it was” No, there will still be the need for masks and social distancing. Today there was segment on the radio about how the animals, especially dogs will adapt (not) when their humans return to working outside the home.
Now more than ever, we need to live being aware of the good, positive “things” “happenings” in our lives. The quote I posted yesterday, resonated with me then and even more today.
A thankful heart leads to happiness. When we really pay attention, we are surrounded by many things we can be thankful for, the society we live in, the kindness shown to us by others. You will be able to find true happiness when you can see and appreciate things.

Look forward to what’s ahead. There is no use brooding over the past. Always try to begin each day anew with a fresh outlook.
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.
When I was a child, my father would take me to places that now are only distant memories. These memories come back to me when I explore Asian builds in the virtual world.
Don’t think overly about people. Instead of being excessively concerned about others, focus on what yhou should do.

During these times of restricted travel, virtual travel is actually a great way to learn about other cultures, and places you’ve never been before. In SL I have met so many wonderful and interesting people, I have been a virtual traveler since 2007. I’ve met people from all over the world, and I’ve expanded my ability to stretch my creative ideas in more ways than I can count. Bonus.. I’ve made friends, good friends who have crossed the border into what we call RL (real life). The reality is, we are who we are, no matter where we are, or how we are expressing ourselves.
If you are still looking for something to do, some place to hang out and listen to some great music.. She will be at Tango’s when she is done here at FogBound.

Your feelings of appreciation become real when you express them. Express your feelings of appreciation by actually saying, “Thank you” out loud or by doing something to show how you feel. Not only will the person you are thanking feel good, but you will too, leading to better things in the future.

In life, the changes we live don’t always show up, like it did in the above pictures. (of my avatar China) But the happenings around us, can impact us, emotionally, and mentally in ways that do leave us with a profound sense of change, and we are left to struggle and relearn to find our “balance”
I used China as an example today, because, it took months, weeks and days, for me to realize that visually she needed a make-over. Then it took hours and hours of trials and redos.. for me to get this far. I have to give a huge shout out to Truth Wizardly who when I asked for help in the chat group came to my rescue. (Truth is a blogger for various designers in SL Glam affaire and Lelutka being two of them)(see him Flickr)
When we make a change in our lives or have one thrust on us, the adjustments take time, and they require patience. In the case of upgrading my avatar, like buying a new car, everything is new and technology has moved on from what you had previously. there is a learning curve.
If we live with appreciation in our hearts, and accept that some of our “realities” will incur deep emotion and require “letting go” With acceptance, and the desire to move on.. We will grow with the changes in our lives… to become even more of the “person” we hope/strive to be.
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.
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.
Quality time with good friends is a very special way to enhance our daily living during these “challenging ” times. My heartfelt thanks to Eclair the owner and creative force behind this very enjoyable venue. Behind every avatar is a human being with a heart and soul … the warmth and glow of friendship that was shared last night was truly a real “xmas” in July.
Silver and I had a great time .. Cheers to everyone, and Sandie thanks again for the great set!
The greatest things in life – truth-creativity-imagination – love- kindness – compassion – are already inside us, and they’re all free.
