You May Say I’m a Dreamer

“I believe in everything until it’s disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it’s in your mind. Who’s to say that dreams and nightmares aren’t as real as the here and now?”

-John Lennon


 

One of my favorite things about SL is that everything can be true and fairies and dragons do exist.  I love the surreal scenes that can be real and that creativity isn’t limited.

From Whence We Came

SSImage

 

“I really don’t know why it is that all of us are so committed to the sea, except I think it’s because in addition to the fact that the sea changes, and the light changes, and ships change, it’s because we all came from the sea. And it is an interesting biological fact that all of us have in our veins the exact same percentage of salt in our blood that exists in the ocean, and, therefore, we have salt in our blood, in our sweat, in our tears. We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea – whether it is to sail or to watch it – we are going back from whence we came.”

 

–John F. Kennedy to the America’s Cup Crew, 1962

 


I’ve always had a love for the sea.  Sailing, skiing, surfing?  I’m in.  Even just visiting the ocean in SL brings a smile to my face. What better way to spend a lazy Sunday after a crazy work week, right?

A Cure for Pride and Prejudice

True confession.  I am a Jane Austen addict.  If I’m depressed, Pride and Prejudice to the rescue.  If I’m sick and curled up on the soft, Emma is a delight.  When I discovered these Maai dresses (thanks to my dear friend, Sin Khaos), I could not help but think of the sophisticated elegance of Jane Austen and the world she created.   I plan on buying this in every color possible!

“I would self-medicate with fat, carbohydrates, and Jane Austen, my number one drug of choice, my constant companion through every breakup, every disappointment, every crisis. Men might come and go, but Jane Austen was always there in sickness and in health, for richer, for poorer, till death do us part.” 
― Laurie Viera RiglerConfessions of a Jane Austen Addict

I wish my photography skills were up to the task of showing how beautiful the detail on this dress is.  Don’t believe me?  Definitely check out Maai.  She also has some lovely and sophisticated lingerie.  Oh and if you are in need of a pick me up?  Reach for Austen.  Like Maai’s gowns, it is the details that make Austen delightful.

Better Geography With ABBA!

When I first saw this Argrace hair, I immediately thought of Agnetha Fältskog from ABBA.  As a disclaimer, I’m American and we are notoriously bad with geography.  If you are from Europe, please don’t take offense as I didn’t even know Wyoming was an actual state–plus I was only 6!  Anyway, I got Sweden, Finland and Norway all sorts of mixed up when studying Scandinavia.  Fortunately, ABBA helped me clarify these!  If you also suck with geography here is how I remember which is which!

Oh and if you want to know how I keep Scandinavia straight. I’m happy to share!

Norway–  The furtherest North ergo… Northway shortened to Norway.  Plus, fjords are really cool and sound a whole lot like Norway.  Also, if you ever need to know which king did something you are pretty safe guessing Olaf.

Sweden– Home of ABBA and therefore the center of the universe.  Therefore, it follows that it would be the center of the Nordics.

Finland– I always think of this as the last of the three or the finish–like a shark’s fin.  Therefore, Finland!  Oddly, now when I think of Finland, Jimmy Buffet’s Fins comes to mind!

Denmark– Hans Christen Anderson is from here.  He’s the famous Author of The Little Mermaid and Denmark is the little one.  Also the main part of Denmark is the  Jutland penninsula and that juts out into the North Sea.
