'Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness'

The Pines at Jacobs Pond 
I was waiting in line to get my Butterfinger Blizzard Treat which I love with those candy pieces in the vanilla ice cream when the girl inside said we are all out of vanilla ice cream. Oh no??? What will I do now? Not fair the guy in front of me ordered for the entire clan family. Damn!

On my way home, the headless horseman was trying to scare me...ha, you got the wrong girl here, Mister.

Sandwiched between blazing summer and chilly winter, autumn is the "cooling off" season. Nighttime arrives earlier, temperatures begin to drop and most vegetative growth decreases. I love that kind of season...the smell of autumn.
Mesmeric Cove

To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells 
  With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees, 
Until they think warm days will never cease,
    For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells. ~John Keats

Invest your energy wisely...

You all know them, the people who are always negative and no matter what you do it is never enough. We call them Energy Vampires and they can suck you right dry of your energy. Do not allow them to feed on you!!!

The important thing to remember is that Energy Vampires are simply people who have been caught up in a cycle of negative energy. In fact, we are all prone to being an Energy Vampire at some point in our lives, so it is important to not judge or to be afraid.
No one can take your energy unless you allow them to and by putting up a stronger, positive force around you and remaining conscious of what is happening, no one will be able to drain you of your energy or effect the way you feel.
There are also draining people which are emotional vampires. They do more than drain your physical energy. The most malignant ones can make you believe you're unworthy and unlovable. Others inflict damage with smaller digs to make you feel bad about yourself—"Dear, I see you've put on a few pounds" or "You're overly sensitive!" Just like that, they've thrown you off-center by prodding areas of shaky self-worth.
Invest your energy on people who lift you up and make you feel know who they are.

“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.” 

Part of the unknown is scary; we don’t know where we are going yet. It’s new. So find people, experiences, and situations that make you feel safe. Create a great circle of positive support,friends, mentors, and loved ones and remember to avoid toxic people who can cause you to sabotage your new beginning.

Whether it is expected or not, find the positive. Prepare for the positive. Prepare for the new. Allow the unknown to take you to fresh and unforeseen areas in yourself.

(note: Drocsid you are most definitely something positive that has happened to me...)

Come and visit the Retreat and take a jump off the Lakehouse...

Autumn Leaves

Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi.

A wind has blown the rain away and blown the sky away and all the leaves away, and the trees stand. I think, I too, have known autumn too long.  (e.e.cummings)

Pumpkins infiltrate everything in the fall and there is no doubt that you'll be ingesting at least a little bit.
If you're with someone, this can actually be a great thing, since pumpkin has been known to be an aphrodisiac. And while that canned stuff that makes pie may not be 100% pumpkin, even the seeds can help get you in the mood.
OK, so this one isn't as concrete, but there is a good reason why so many people lose their minds over the fall. It's a comforting time, with memories of new schools and holidays and brisk, comfortable weather.
There is something to be said for this peaceful aesthetic creeping into your own feelings. When you're happy, your relationship is better, so ultimately, it's a great time to be in love with someone.

Come and explore the late summer  themed location called "Whimberly".
Enjoy your stay, take lots of pictures, meet friends an above all have fun!

Treat life like a Ferris wheel ride...

… You must get past the fear to enjoy the ride.

A counter clockwise circle
With colorful lights of flair
A sky with stars that twinkle
Where I often don’t have a care
The wind is soft and cool
The moon becomes my only friend
If the sun came up, it’d be cruel
Because I don’t want this night to end.

Life is like a Ferris wheel. One minute you’re on top, the next you’re at the bottom. Just stay in your seat, enjoy the ride, and hang on until you reach the top again.

We've been taught to think that fear is for sissies. We see it as a weakness, something we should hide from others and deal with alone in dark nights of the soul. But fear shouldn't elicit shame or stay hidden. Now more than ever, our fears need to shamelessly take center stage so we can let fear illuminate everything that is in need of healing in our lives and finally be free.

Einstein said, "The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe." When you believe it's a hostile universe, life is scary. But when you trust that you are held, loved, safe, nurtured, and protected by a guiding intelligence that is ALL LOVE, you can relax.

Don’t carry your ideas to the grave untouched...

“You cannot defeat darkness by running from it, nor can you conquer your inner demons by hiding them from the world. In order to defeat the darkness, you must bring it into the light.”

“Within its gates I heard the sound
Of winds in cypress caverns caught
Of huddling tress that moaned, and sought
To whisper what their roots had found.
(“A Dream of Fear”)” 
― George Sterling

In every day, there are 1,440 minutes. That means we have 1,440 daily opportunities to make a positive impact. It is up to us to fill them with good thoughts and live in the now and not the past. I suppose leaving the past at a cemetery. It's time to say goodbye, but I think goodbyes are sad and I'd much rather say hello. Hello to a new adventure. I am ready...are you?

The Marvelous Moomintoog Circus

1930's circus - great place for photos, RP, come play in the big top. Fly on the trapeze, walk the tightrope, dance under fireworks. Come explore this cool place.

Halloween will be here before you know it, I can hardly wait.

Life is a circus ring, with some moments more spectacular than others.
Because of you, I laugh a little harder, cry a little less, and smile a lot more.

Once a highly fashionable coastal resort - now run down and forgotten by the world. 
Come see what's left, explore this sim and enjoy all the details. Misty Payne created all of this and you will be highly impressed when you visit. This is also a great place to take photographs.
Misty is from Germany and speaks fluent German and also English of course. I hope you go and say hello to her.

...I heard there was someone but I know she don't deserve you
If you were mine I'd never let anyone hurt you, no, no
I wanna dry those tears, kiss those lips
It's all that I've been thinking about
'Cause a light came on when I heard that song and I want you to sing it again...

The Cat museum

The Cat museum
A place for those who love cats. Un lugar para los que aman los gatos.

Owning a cat can reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack by a third. You may consider getting a cat for that reason alone. Cats only meow to humans and not with other cats. So feel yourself talked to when your cat meows.

Cats have a longer-term memory than dogs, especially when they learn by actually doing rather than simply seeing. That proofs that cats are smarter than dogs....wooot.

I hope you come to the museum and learn all about cats. Enjoy!!!

Feel Sexy, no matter who you are!!!

In Second Life we tend to have these perfect bodies without flaws but in reality we may not have this kind of body or face at all. The problem is we need to stop that self shaming of what we look like.

If you are constantly comparing yourself to other women, you will never be happy; it’s unfair for you and for them. The confidence to feel sexy is within yourself, so look for it. (This goes for men as not compare yourself to other men, you are you).

Whatever it is that gives you the feel good vibes, channel it! That positive energy helps you feel your sexiest and happiest!

If your mood goes down and you suddenly find yourself thinking negatively. These are behaviors that need to be avoided at all costs. No one can make you feel confident, sexy, and happy but yourself. We all have things we hate about ourselves. Instead of dwelling on them, it is time we change them and take charge of our happiness!

Feel the love!!! Here is some love from me to know who you are...winks :)

Good Morning!!!

I woke up and was thinking...well I always think but suddenly "You" were on my mind. So I read recently that "greet each other “good morning” and “good night” every day — this is a must."

Then I also read you suppose to make up some silly nickname for the person you constantly think about. Really? What shall I call you? Are there clues along the way?

I will just call you superman whether you like it or not. Oh great, now I am talking to myself even in second life. Maybe it was the heavy curlers...winks :)

”Let us forget with generosity the people who cannot love us.”

Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead, let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come.

Sometimes when you are in a dark place, you think you’ve been buried; but actually you’ve been planted.Give yourself the love you seek, and the universe will send people who match it.

Some people come into our lives for a brief period of time to teach us a lesson or expose us to a new way of thinking. We will keep reliving the same things until the lesson has been learned. While you may have loved someone, and continue to do so, they will likely not be the only person you will ever love. If it is supposed to happen, it will. You don’t need to beg someone to love you or care for you, in the way you do for them. Open up yourself to the possibility that this ending is the beginning of something far better than you’ve ever experienced before.
