Vincent van Gogh inspired---Oniro - Romantic Land of Dreams

Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
~ Vincent Van Gogh

I absolutely loved this place, because you feel you are in one of Vincent van Gogh's paintings. Oniro is a romantic land of dreams for sure.

The vibrant colors are like the oxygen van Gogh breathed in and took his inspirations from.

His art had a sense of erotic explosions of a sexual vitality that he could rarely achieve in life. He had this romantic dream of people coming together, which you see represented in the colors twirling together.
For someone who was so lonely and depressed he painted some beautiful pictures which still to this day belong to some of the greatest art we know.
Go and explore this beautiful place and feel some romantic vibes of art, colors and perhaps love of life.

What is Paradise?

I suppose paradise could mean many things and each time it would look different. Some describe it more as a religious term, but I think it is simply the fairy-tale of unspoiled beauty that surrounds us all. We just have to look for it. It is there, right within us.
The idyllic beach at Crossing Currents is one of those places.
Of course when you are in such a luscious place it absolutely helps to be with someone who is very alluring and loving. I was so lucky to be there with my very best friend. He is so much more than that, he is paradise.

To paradise come; chase your blues away!
Pure pleasure resides at my favorite place.
Where sand and sea sparkle and palm trees sway -
To paradise come. Chase your blues away.
Just play and dance the waves. Stay all day -
Warm breezes and sun caressing your face.
To paradise come; chase your blues away.
Pure pleasure resides at my favorite place!

So if you sum it all up, then paradise means love. Whoever we do love, hold them close to your heart because when you are not feeling that heavenly paradise in the real world then think of these moments when you were in paradise.
Always smile when you go to sleep because it is a guarantee that you will wake up smiling in the morning. All great days start with a smile.

~Somewhere on the Blake Sea~

It was only "The Miss Behaven" afloat on the Blake Sea on this very calm night. The waves were almost still but you could hear them soothe you like soft jazz. Romantic and sexy all at the same time as the sun was going down in the west.
The only crew on board was us and we took a break from this windless night as we were sitting dead in the water with nowhere to go and no other vessels in sight. No land either, nothing!
What do you do when you are stranded in the middle of the sea? Of course, I got it....Do laundry. What else could you possibly do on the open sea?

I figure at least this way we have clean clothes when we arrive on shore again. I don't think Greg minded that at all. He was eager to get the clothes into the washing machine and he said: " Make sure you set the cycle for extra long." I guess he figured we would be here for awhile.
And that was perfectly fine with me. Besides we could make our own motion in the ocean if you are getting my drift. 

Ahoy Sailors!!!

If you have not yet experienced the electrifying sounds of Novolino then you are missing something. I had the opportunity the other day to see and hear this unique musician at The Looking Glass sim.
Everything you hear at one of his live shows is an original piece of music by Novolino. His music is a mixture of what I would describe a form of trance with a very romantic touch. I am not an expert in music more so in art but this experience made me feel happy and the sounds were soothing.
Not only was the music an experience in itself, but the light show that went along was most defiantly some great ambiance that drew you right into this place. One of the fantastic things in Second Life is that some experiences feel very much real and this one did. 
Novolino comes from Australia and I am so fortunate that I discovered him. I hope you will too. Just look for him in Second Life and find out when his next show is.

Enchanted Alice

It's all things Alice in this Alice in Wonderland-inspired spot. Step through the looking glass and discover various interpretations of Alice as she moves between levels seamlessly.
This was a really nice and new way to experience Alice in Wonderland. I would most definitely recommend it, because it is worth a visit. 

Come and crawl into the hole here :)

The bath ritual of roses !!!

Water is the essential element for life and it also is also used in many rituals.

When I think of bathing it creates such a relaxing feeling in my mind. You have the scent of the bath oils a subtle aroma of roses.

Angels use rose scents as physical signs of their spiritual presence with people, since roses have powerful energy fields that vibrate at a high electrical frequency -- the highest of any flower on Earth!!!

Of course taking a shower together is also a good way to save water and since water is so sacred, why not do this tonight with someone you love.
Make it a ritual whenever you feel like it. It will bring smiles for sure and if all fails you will be clean.

Oh one last note: The Bath ritual may lead into some poetic motions you will not likely forget.

Go ahead and smell the roses!!!

Casablanca's Rick’s Café Américain

So I wait in his office and he comes in looking at me with this serious look on his face. " Alright toots what can I do for you? " He asks with a grin on his face.
"Oh, Mister I am in need of some Lindens and they told me to come to you and kindly asked you for this favor." I reluctantly ask him.

"I don't give out loans to just about anybody. It would have to be very special to give anything out so freely in these days. But you look like a nice dame and we may need to discuss this further." 
" I would love to discuss this with you Mister. I can offer you something you may really appreciate. What do you think?" I excitingly challenge him.
"Oh really doll? I am all ears." He straightens himself up in the chair and looks right at me.
"Let me whisper this into your ear. I do not want anyone to hear me." Trying to convince him to listen to my plea.
"Go ahead doll, I am all yours. Tell me now, why I would do any type of business with you." he fidgety responds. Waiting for the answer as if he knew what it was to begin with,but let's me persuade him.
It wasn't a hard challenge at all, because I could feel he was into me right from the start. I wanted to set this deal into motion as soon as we could get out of this joint. He insisted we go over to Rick’s Café Américain and do a little dancing. "I want to feel you near-at-hand doll, if ya know what I mean. Feel your curves as your sweet rose scent impending my mind." he sheepishly reveals.
I feel his breath on my neck generating a pleasant shiver of euphoria and weakens my knees. He quickly holds on to me and says: " I got you toots, I got you. " Oh, yes you do, I am thinking. You got me alright. My heart pounding and I am suddenly taken over by him and there is nothing I can negotiate at all at this point. I am intoxicated by his embrace.

"How about we leave this joint?" He smiles and winks at me? " Yes of course, I would love to." I quickly reply.

And the rest I cannot reveal because a lady never tells her secrets not even you. I can mention one thing, the night was not over and a new adventure immersed with a spellbound intensity you can only imagine.

If you like to create your own story, stop by the famous Casablanca sim.

Taking the leap from “just friends”to actually being in a relationship !!!

Scary? Yes, because you have both been in relationships that failed; and you never know what might happen, or if the risk of losing him as a friend is even worth making him your boyfriend. But, for me it was, and always will be.

I have known Greg for a little more than 2 years now and we both have been on the roller coaster of ups and downs when it comes to relationships in second life.
To this point we have never been a couple, we have been "just friends". Not that we ever thought about more, but we have that utmost respect for each other that we never discussed this " more than friends" scenario.
Just forget the risk, take the fall, if it’s meant to be it’s worth it all.

A best friend loves you and will always love you. They tell you when you’re wrong/right/and look goofy. A best friend will fight with you and laugh with you and go through hell and back for you. When your best friend turns out to be your boyfriend, he does all that while worshiping the ground you walk on, adoring every move you make and getting excited about what the future holds not only for you, but for both of you as a couple. He will love you and teach you how to let him love you. He will crave your smile and your touch and praise you for all the little things. He will love you like no other.

I will hope that our true friends will support us in this new adventure and will feel the joy with us. For those who don't, we wish you well and send you hugs and kisses, because we know you need them.
Our first adventure together in this video :

Cookin' up some Rumors!!!

There are so many things to say about rumors. We all know that rumors are created by those who hate. They hate life, they hate people , they hate it when someone might be happy and they are not. You know I am right here, because you have met people like this. They LOVE to gossip about others, whether it is true or not. The best advice I can give you is ask the source, ask the person who is involved if the rumor you heard about them is true. A true and honest friend would do that.

Those who spread the rumors are truly fools. They really are. Think about it. What do you know about the person who is spreading those rumors? Are they reliable? Are they part of the issue? Why are they telling you this crap? And here it gets really tricky now....if you are accepting the rumors let me burst your bubble. Those who accept rumors are pure idiots. Yes, I said it. They are nothing but stupid idiots who have no clue what the real truth is.

Cooking up some rumors? Yes...ask me what is up!!!

The pixel world is run by fools who are just as distorted in second life as they are in real life. Don't be one of them !!!
