The last American exit

My dear pal Loafy talked to me yesterday about Tragically Hip, and how the lead singer Gord has a swiftly-progressing cancer and will soon likely die. He gave his last performance in Canada on Saturday night. Loafy said, it really struck him that a man about to die has yet impacted so many.

I've had cancer, I've come out the other side (for now, anyway, although it requires some monitoring), and I've had other diseases as well (hello, fibroids). The body is frail, and yet it's our only node to connect to this earth, to roll around in it and be impacted by it and give love to it. What is our best contribution?

What am I contributing today that makes any kind of impact? Maybe it's this -- these words, going out to you, to ask that you think with me. Who was touched by your life? What did you leave behind?

Meant to fly

I slept for 9 whole hours in a row, Saturday night, and when I was finally awake on Sunday this is exactly how I felt. I put on ancient baggy sweat pants and a sweat shirt and slippers and crashed the hell out, and it felt amazing. Also, I got a bunch of elegant furniture from Circa, stuff that really helped to round out my outdoor bedroom. It's the Takumi set, and it is meant for a Japanese living room, but works very well underneath the bauwerk Moroccan bed.

Anyway. Stuff. Here's to a full work week and Monday morning!

These shoes, always

My lovely partner Jackal has been making this style of shoe ever since it had to be applied in several pieces over an alpha way back in the days of Caledon. They've evolved over time, but not the classic shape, pointy and Edwardian with different degrees of heel. I've loved them all, and this pair, with all its lace embellishment, is no exception. Find them at Enchantment!

Rose in my eye

When the flowers in your eyes make you have flower sties
That's horticulture
When the world seems to smell like a rose on the veldt
That's horticulture.

Okay, perhaps that was a stretch. But yeah, Katat0nik made eye-roses for Collabor88, forever pushing my conceptualization of what's appropriate in an alternate reality world anyway. Why should we all look like humans, and live in human houses, and do human things when we could be literally anything we want? Stick a flower in your eye, push the limits, smell the pixelated air. Why not?

Also, how fierce is that green bling'd out jumpsuit from Chapter Four?

Delicate foot chains

Do any of you ever fall into a fandom head-first, one that you've never considered before, because it suddenly makes sense in your life? There's always a moment when things align -- inside of you, outside of you -- and a certain kind of interaction or plot or vision of the future suddenly clicks into focus. A little while ago it was hockey, for me. And now it's, er, it's Star Trek. Even though I know it's a deep, dark dive into an ancient fandom that is rife with issues that I don't yet know, I'm still fascinated. It always feels like falling in love, and those first months are an aching wave of sweetness.

Anyway, look, I am wearing pretty things from Gacha Garden, and own more pretty things from it! Gacha, so satisfying, and now I'm probably maxing out our Sim's limit in rezzed objects. (Sorry, Jackal!)

Converse and a bat


I woke up at 6 AM and wrote about hockey on a sunday. Do you guys like sports? It got me in an in-your-face kinda mood, so I'm carrying around this bat full of silver nails from Gacha Garden. I do love Gacha items for stretching what kinds of stuff I put on my avatar. Like kitty helmets, yanno? Anyway. Everyone have an extremely chill Sunday please.

I went to Lost & Found and got a bunch of skateboards. I used to skate in real life, until middle age rose up and stopped me! I still own a lovely Sector 9 longboard, and whenever I feel blue, I queue up "Carving the mountains," which is the best women's longboarding video ever.
