Down by the water

DownByTheWater3

It was dusk…or maybe it was dawn…I don’t really remember. Took a walk down by the water, just to think, and breathe. So beautiful there, with the soft light drifting through the trees. I could almost smell the grass and hear the gentle lap of water from our little lake on a breezy day in the summertime.  For a moment, it felt like recaptured perfection.

Fearless

Urban Girl

No, I certainly don’t claim to be fearless. But I cultivate an attitude of fearlessness, or more aptly, of bravery — an ‘I’m not gonna let you get me down’ attitude, even when the miasma of drama pollutes the air. And it works for me. Anyone who’s been in this world long enough to develop a social circle has at least been an observer of what we call ‘drama’ if not a participant, a victim, or a survivor. I’m a survivor. And to any of you being currently victimized by the drama-mongers, I will say this: you have a mute button, so use it. Remove the malevolent or disturbed individual from your friend list, mute them and walk away. It’s not always easy to do, but once you have, it’s wonderful. It’s like they don’t even exist. And, if you think of them from time to time, just pity them because they’re stuck with themselves. Pity them, and then let it go.

Runaway

Runaway

Some days are like that:  all you do is run around.  Today I was hopping from sim to sim, collecting SURLs as I get this blog ready for public viewing.  If it was *real* running, no way would I be able to wear these boots!  But pain-free stilettos are one of the many joys of SL.

Delicious! (52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Plum)

Ocean in Plum

I love plum and I love plums.
 Can’t even think about plums without thinking about this poem,
 which I also love:

This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

~ William Carlos Williams

It’s almost time…

Sitting in snow

Today’s date caused me to do some reflection (apparently while sitting in the snow — brr!). I never do the resolution thing, but I have spent much of this week thinking about my goals for the year to come, which include lots more writing, lots more dancing, and, I hope some more advanced education. Other things, too, are on my mind, but they shall remain between me and my journal. (*winks*)

Most pressing question right now: do I brave the crowds of New Year’s eve? Or do I stay on my solitary sim, sipping cider? (Okay — It won’t really be cider, but I couldn’t resist the aural alliteration…) In any event, I hope those of you going out to celebrate have a blast of a time, and that we may all raise a glass — real or virtual — to better days in 2011!
