Walpurgis Night

Walpurgis Night is celebrated in much the same way it has always been. In parts of Germany, it is celebrated by dressing up in costumes and playing pranks – which makes it very similar to Halloween celebrations in the United States. Some people also create loud noises, sometimes using fireworks, to drive away evil spirits.

Walpurgis Night, also known as Walpurgisnacht in German, is a holiday which occurs on April 30th in different parts of Europe.

Running out of time....

It seems the older you get the faster time runs out. Why is that? Why does it seem time goes by so quick? The reason? Our brain encodes new experiences, but not familiar ones, into memory, and our retrospective judgment of time is based on how many new memories we create over a certain period. In other words, the more new memories we build on a weekend getaway, the longer that trip will seem in hindsight.

Lost in the forest

Lost in the forest, I broke off a dark twig
and lifted its whisper to my thirsty lips:
maybe it was the voice of the rain crying,
a cracked bell, or a torn heart.

Something from far off it seemed
deep and secret to me, hidden by the earth,
a shout muffled by huge autumns,
by the moist half-open darkness of the leaves.

Wakening from the dreaming forest there, the hazel-sprig
sang under my tongue, its drifting fragrance
climbed up through my conscious mind

as if suddenly the roots I had left behind
cried out to me, the land I had lost with my childhood---
and I stopped, wounded by the wandering scent. Pablo Neruda

Take me to church....

....My lover's got humor
She's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshiped her sooner....

“In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in your lap; it falls somewhere nearby, and you have to recognize it, stand up, and put in the time and work it takes to get to it. This isn't because the universe is cruel. It's because the universe is smart. It has its own cat-string theory and knows we don't appreciate things that fall into our laps.”

The Outer Garden...just before Heaven

And he said to her:

I am the day, soon to be born
I am the light before the morning
I am the night that will be dawn
I am the end and the beginning

I am the Alpha and Omega
The night and day, the first and last

Illuminosa immortalis sancta gloriosa
Illuminosa immortalis sancta gloriosa
In Aeterna

If you never heard the song, you may want to listen in because it is very beautiful and this place kinda reminded me of that song.
The Outer Garden is a beautiful place to visit.

Happy Easter 2018

The Basement Club celebrated its second anniversary. It actually opened its doors on April 2, 2016 and has most definitely gone through some improvements though the years. We may not be a very big Club, but we are cozy, we are unique and our DJs are playing not your daily radio music. 

It's a small world after all and yes that is directly from the song from the famous Disneyland ride. Greg and I decided to go and revisit this park  once again instead of hanging out at a club .
I think the most fun adventure here is to view the Captain EO film.
Captain EO is a 1986 American 3D science fiction film starring Michael Jackson and directed by Francis Ford Coppola (who came up with the name "Captain EO" from the Greek, cf. Eos, the Greek goddess of dawn) that was shown at Disney theme parks from 1986 through 1996. The attraction returned to the Disney Parks in 2010 as a tribute after Jackson's death. The film was shown for the final time at Epcot on December 6, 2015.
You can see all this at MAGICLAND, a true Disneyland adventure here in second Life.

Is the Easter bunny married?

If you ever wondered if the Easter Bunny is married, the answer is simple: of course he is.

I know this for sure be cause the wedding took place at the lovely Retreat Chapel on Easter Sunday.
The reception was filled with carrot cake cupcakes and Radish Champagne. Everybody was given Cadbury’s Creme Eggs. The main dish was traditional Easter meals like succulent herb-crusted leg of lamb, scored honey-glazed ham, seasoned roast vegetables and spiced hot crossed buns or trifle for pudding.

Don't hesitate to stop by the Chapel at the Retreat today and if you are planning a wedding, just let me know :)
