Are We Blue   Leave a comment

Am I blue?
Am I blue?
Ain’t these tears in my eyes
Tellin’ you?

A Journey   Leave a comment

It’s a journey … that I propose … I am not the guide … nor
technical assistant … I will be your fellow passenger …

Though the rail has been ridden … winter clouds cover …
autumn’s exuberant quilt … we must provide our own guide-posts …

I have heard … from previous visitors … the road washes out
sometimes … and passengers are compelled … to continue
groping … or turn back … I am not afraid …

I am not afraid … of rough spots … or lonely times … I don’t
fear … the success of this endeavor … I am Ra … in a space …
not to be discovered … but invented …

I promise you nothing … I accept your promise … of the same
we are simply riding … a wave … that may carry … or crash …

It’s a journey … and I want … to go …

The Royal Ladies of the Universe   Leave a comment

It’s been a busy time for all four of us, between our various RL jobs, activities and families; but especially for me.  You see, I just semi-retired … I’ve taken up new, easier occupations, but retired completely from my retail job.  Another Christmas shopping season like the last would have been soul-crunching, if not crushing.  And I’m not really up to the physical demands of retail in many ways, what with my RL age.  (We won’t go into details!)

But also, the last child will be leaving the nest to enter college in the fall — he graduates from high school next week — and that would mean, if I were scheduled for a night shift, that the husband would come home to a dark house after a long shift at the office.  After over 12 years of going through this, that’s not any good.  Last year, I asked if there were a chance of getting placed permanently on morning (opening) shift at all, and informed that wasn’t possible.  That, plus various changes at several levels in the company, made me feel it was time to “turn in my papers.”

And so, with that, it’s time to celebrate!  A change of clothes, a change of skin … hell, even a change of hair … and then sweet-talking the other ladies to do it with me.

In the Hamptons   Leave a comment

From you have I been absent in the spring,
When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,

Dun dun DUNNNN….! Ok, not really debunking! Frankly bakes on mesh is going to be great. I’m a HUGE fan. You’ll finally be able to wear as many tattoos, moles, makeup and other body mods as you want! Skin makers will be able to give you tattoos that let you mix and match your facial features! Calorie Free Bacon will rain from the sky! Ok, not that last one.. but still some great stuff!

A good discussion from the masters of Omega Solutions on the eventual workings of the now legendary Bakes On Mesh project.  Designers give this a read to understand what’s happening … and what’s not.

Second Life Project BakesOnMesh – StrawberrySingh.com   Leave a comment

For me, this is a great reason to not throw away any tattoo makeup for now.  It’ll mean a heavier inventory, but if I can achieve the same layered makeup on my mesh heads as I did on the system heads, I’ll celebrate!

I love the fact that Linden Lab continues to work on new features to improve Second Life, even after 15 years! Recently they did a blog post, 15 Reasons to Celebrate Second Life, and number 14 on the list was Bakes on Mesh. BakesOnMesh is a new feature that has NOT hit the main viewer […]
