Shelter from The Storm

In every life, you need a little shelter from a storm.  Whether it be a downpour, or snow storm or even a personal crisis moment.  Exploring in SecondLife, I found one of these “shelters.”  Looking for the light in the darkest moment, seeking out the refuge.

Haraiki Bay had such a place.  Watching the water crashing up around this lighthouse and manipulating the wind lights, allowed me to get this perfect capture of how life can be.  Often you need to look for the light on the darkest day or the rainbow.  Look for the good and try to shrug off the negative.  Just a small thought on life.

Travels in SL allows you to explore these beautiful sites.  If you find the time, pop in and seeks out this glorious refuge on a dark and stormy night (and … please let SPRING be here now truly tired of the snow)Feb 19 Haraiki Bay_001_peblog

Taking Chances

Life is all about taking chances.  New beginnings, cherishing the past, looking forward.  Once we stop that, we get into that well-established rut that so many despise.  Then you can’t sort how to get out of them. So taking chances is good.  Go into it with your eyes wide open, stay true to yourself.  Don’t live in ruts, don’t live in lies, and don’t live to please others or you just fizzle and burn out.

This stunning sim was so well worth the exploring.  Thank you to a great friend for showing me this place.  It allows one to relax and explore.  It allows you to shut off and enjoy the colors.  The music is soothing, while the artists work and how she accomplishes this, amazes me.  This is one sim that will be on my list to go back to regularly to unwind.

Chesapeake Bay

So travels in SL allow one to view things through very different eyes.  Whether we need glasses or not, sometimes changing the lens on your view is all one needs to bring a new perspective.

This week during my travels I came across the Chesapeake Bay.  Funny enough there I was minding my own business, and I sat in this chair that no matter what I did.. I couldn’t get comfy.  SO I wound up doing the “what the heck look” as I watch people around me doing photos, the water splashing up on the beach, and life was casually passing by.  I truly loved the ability to sit and watch.

This sim is truly FULL of photographic spots.  Well worth the visit to engage and try different wind lights.  Different angles and don’t forget to change your DOF.  After all, changing the lens often changes the perspective.  Even in life, it does.  Feb 16 Chesapeake Bay_003_peblog

Life at the End of a Day

Traveling and exploring in SL at the end of a long and very exhausting day at work, and finding that perfect photo moment always brightens one’s heart.  Nothing like a walk per se into the sunset and holding onto the wonders of people’s imagination and creativity.

Haraiki Bay allows you to do this.  I so loved walking through this sim.  It is a stop worth visiting, and a place to relax.  Congrats to the creators of this sim.

StoryBrooke Gardens

This fabulous sim is one of many.  There are several connecting sims, but honestly, this is one of my favorites mostly because it is fantasy, mystical and just so full of imaginations.
Land of fairies, teacups, and dreams. 

Growing up, one loved the stories of the mystical and fantasy.  Not all the offensive side of life these days.  This sim, just allows your mind to drift and relax and let go of the day’s lengthy trials.  It lets you enjoy the lightness of the fairy dust in the air.  The gingerbread cookie men, the candy cane candies lining the walks, the fairy homes.  I love the balloons here and guess what, I will likely be doing a few shots in this area. 

So the Best is Yet to come

Living Life My Way

This song by Bon Jovi has so many different meanings. Honestly, we should all live our lives our way, but be aware of how we affect others.  I am living my life my way, this past year in SL has been hard.  Losing Spike was the hardest thing I have gone through.  The emotions have bounced me all over the place.  And by losing, I don’t mean he broke up with me, he passed away.  Last day I talked to him and was with him was a year ago today.  He passed away on April 5, 2018.

SO this is something he taught me, and he did have a lot to teach, that is without a doubt.  Live your life with no regrets.  Live your life with positive energy.  Live your life like you mean it.  So having said that, I have created a new me.  Hmmm, not genuinely new as I seem to change my head in SL as often as I do my boots/shoes.  But here is my new look,  the new Lelutka head Piper (truly have fallen in love with it).

Mystic Timbers

This sim seems to keep continually adding new beautiful things to it where you can have fun and get such great photos. Indeed a sim well worth exploring,  Wanna NotBe and I honestly had fun on this sim.  Lots of beautiful surprise nooks and crannies to find pleasure in.

So, this time on Mystic Timbers we decided to show a little backbone or as Wanna called it, “attitude”  Loved it.  We all need a little ‘tude in our lives to brighten the day.
