Dive right in!

The pool is finally ready to enjoy as the weather gets warmer for Spring. Why not stop by and take a dip in the lovely pool at the Retreat. The pool is located right behind the Retreat Gallery and is inviting you to dive right in.

It also makes a great backdrop for a picture if you are into photography. The fireplace will keep you cozy warm in case you want to swim at night, and do not worry the dogs do not bite.

Pig in a poke

Sometimes you have to exercise your insanity, to really make it strong.~Flula

As someone with PTSD and anxietyI know that after a few days of not interacting with other humans beyond people the grocery store checkout, it can make both conditions worse. It’s not that I want to go out and socialize (quite the opposite, actually), but I’ve found that spending long periods of time alone can cause my anxiety and PTSD to spiral. This is something I can absolutely see happening during a period of home isolation or quarantine as well. I do wonder about how all of this will end and affect people in the long run. Can we all get back to normal? Then again what is normal. Isolation for me is normal and most of the time friends do not understand that I stay away from social interactions because they always end up devasting to me and break my emotions three-fold.

Fascinating to see in Second Life that people have not changed at all. They still are the same old assholes as always. A leopard can't or doesn't change its spots. It just doesn't happen. Even with a crisis like this, they remain the same. I am always careful not to rely on something that I may not get or that may not happen. Lessons you learn as life goes on.

I remember a dear friend I met in Second Life and stayed in contact for many many years, but not only did I get harassed twice by two of his wives on several occasions it makes me wonder what is so wrong with that person to pick women who abuse him. The latest wife he found in Second Life who I know abuses him physically. She thinks she is the queen of it all, ugly in many ways, I have seen pics he sent, although he said he was happy. I hope he finds peace and gets help to get away from this maniac. Be careful who you meet out there in Second Life, they may sound nice but they may be the next killer. Look before you leap!!!

I am not saying that are only bad people out there. People are born to be good, but it is the choices they make are bad. You know what is right and you know what is bad. Act accordingly! So, here is what I tell that ugly wife of his: You are full of crap. You know nothing about me, only what he told you and that may be a lie. So stuff it and go back home. You are just a pig in a poke.

Coronavirus is a worldwide pandemic. It’s bound to get very emotional reactions from people who are scared. That’s normal. People have different ways of reacting to the news and some are very prone to emotional outbursts.
There are, however, a certain group of people who engage in behaviors that are irresponsible, like to spread misinformation, and basically make everything worse for themselves and everyone around them.
There is a new trending word for them now; it’s Covidiot. I mean how much toilet paper do you need? And what about those people who are still out there exposing not only themselves but risking others? 
Let's pause yourselves for this time. Nothing is as normal but that does not mean it won't return. I am sure it will. In the meantime, relax and work on a new habit. What does it mean to be grateful? Thankfully, it doesn’t mean convincing yourself of some bogus notion that everything’s fine and dandy. Living your life with gratitude means choosing to focus your time and attention on what you appreciate. The goal is not to block out difficulties, but to approach those difficulties from a different perspective. Appreciation softens us. It soothes our turbulent minds by connecting us with the wonderfully ordinary things, great and small, that we might otherwise take for granted.
I know how hard this can be because I forget very often what positives I have in my life. It is easy to see the bad and negative. So, this may be the time to look into yourself and find the positive. Do not let fear and anxiety steal your health...let it go and release all of it today.

You’ve been blessed. Even if you rarely realize it. All of us here have.

The ME generation

So, here I am when the time for real-life was limited and now there is all of a sudden all the time.

What puzzles me is that people are so ignorant and do not always hold themselves on social distance. Is humanity really so dumb? I know it is Spring and you want to enjoy the sunshine, but do you not get it that there is a crisis happening? I am mainly concerned with my fellow Germans who I see on television still out there doing what they are doing. Is it really that hard to think? How can you be so egotistic and not see or hear the warnings?

What these, the dumbest of all humans are doing is very selfish and they risk the lives of others and also what we treasure the most our freedom. I see the young who believe none of them will be affected, the "ME" society as I call them. I'd rather be a Boomer and have some common sense. 

Freedom is a responsibility that these humans cannot cope with. They do not have the brain cells because they have been suffering from a far more dangerous virus...the "What about me" or also known "Me first".

Sure being locked down as people from the government sounds like a nation that is under a dictatorship, BUT right now it is the only way we can flatten the curve. If you could just grow a small amount of sense and listen and follow the direction we have been given, it could maybe save your dumb ass.

Here is something I read and maybe it is good advice, although I have no proof it is true: The virus is killed by ultraviolet sunlight, and airflow will hasten dehydration. Do not create airflow by turning on building central air systems—you will spread contamination. If there are windows, open them wide and leave them open whenever weather conditions allow. If there are curtains or shades, open them and let sunlight pour in.

There you go, my five cents as it may be worthless to the Me Generation but maybe have some value to the rest of us who still have some common sense.

Stream is up for dedications

Here we go if you want to make a shout-out or dedication....the stream is up and running...just send me a message

Special Dedication Sets and Shout-outs coming up....

Staying calm and positive with all the tragic things that are happening in the world as a result of the coronavirus might not be as easy as someone think. Sure the first few days of being off are great but after a while when you cannot follow your daily routine and you get constant reminders that this is NOT a dream but reality makes it frightful.

Savor the small moments: Even during a lockdown you still have many small moments to savor. The smell of coffee, the feel of the warm shower on your back and so on.

Strengthen your connections: for those of us in family lockdown, now is the opportunity to spend quality time with our loved ones. Take the time to hug your kids or partner, look them in the eyes, have long conversations with them.

Look for the good in others: These types of crises can bring out both the worst and the best in human nature. This week there were two Youtube clips that went viral in Australia about toilet paper. One was of three grown women fighting in Woolworths over a packet of toilet paper. 

Use this time to get to know you and the friends and people you care about. This is like a test. Have fun!!! Create Art, listen to music, learn new things. Stay busy!!!

I will have some special sets starting tonight at 7PM PST (SLT) were you can dedicate songs to those who are still working, health care providers, store clerks and those who serve the public. Send me your dedications and requests...and listen to the stream and pass the stream on. We can do this and make the days happy even if it is just for an hour or so...
If you are in Second Life, stop by the Basement Club and bring your friends. We can have that social contact here in a safe place.

Follow the Health Department’s latest updates on the Coronavirus (Covid-19), including the WHO’s prevention methods. Travelers from Covid-19 affected areas are advised to stay at home for up to 14 days. If you develop any symptoms contact your doctor or clinic, they will advise your next steps.

Missing Melody

Getting my feet wet in the warm waters. Puggle sure loves it.
What is a Missing Melody
It's that song in your head that you can't get out but not sure how it really goes. 
It's that temptation you want to have in your life so you can fight to resist. 
It's that place in your heart that is always waiting to be filled.

If you ever stopped by this sim you will be happy it is back and has some new things to be discovered. It is serene and peaceful and the perfect place to run barefoot in the lush grass.

“Persistence. Perfection. Patience. Power. Prioritize your passion. It keeps you sane.”
No regrets for life just lessons learned. I find myself grateful for all the little things we do have at least for now. I think at this testing time we should take time out and breathe and view these artfully decorated sims one at a time. You can easily get lost in them.

“As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being redirected to something better.” 

The art of teaching is the art of assisting discovery. So go out there and discover.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

May peace and plenty bless your world
The red-haired, green-clothed Leprechaun is commonly associated with St. Patrick’s Day. The original Irish name for these figures of folklore is “lobaircin,” meaning “small-bodied fellow.” Belief in leprechauns likely stems from Celtic belief in fairies— tiny men and women who could use their magical powers to serve good or evil. In Celtic folktales, leprechauns were cranky souls, responsible for mending the shoes of the other fairies.

Paddy, the Leprechaun 

There are many misconceptions about the Saint and Patron of Ireland. He was actually born in Great Britain. Shamrocks were considered the first sign of spring and did not have anything to do with luck. The meal that became a St. Patrick’s Day staple across the country—corned beef and cabbage—was an American innovation. While ham and cabbage were eaten in Ireland, corned beef offered a cheaper substitute for impoverished immigrants.

The Cutest little Pub I have seen. A must-visit for sure.
Green beer is the delicious treat that many drink (and drink and drink) on Saint Patrick's Day. But the most colorful beer is not an Irish tradition: it's an American-born innovation that requires a lot of moxie and a little blue food coloring.
There you go a few things maybe you did not know and thought were Irish and are not. Regardless, I hope you enjoy yourself and keep that distance. Listen to music or come and visit this cool Irish Pub in Second Life called The Green Raven Nest.

A tune is more lasting than the song of the birds,
And a word more lasting than the wealth of the world.

BKLYN is dedicated to Brooklyn, New York. Great place to look around for all the details and things you find.

Get a hot dog here

Spend some time here and take lots of pictures. You can also join their Flickr group and post them there. 
I think that guy was following me

You can almost hear the hustle and bustle of the busy city. Did you know the Brooklyn Bridge started being constructed in 1869? The Brooklyn Bridge is a hybrid cable-stayed/suspension bridge in New York City, spanning the East River between the boroughs of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Opened on May 24, 1883, the Brooklyn Bridge was the first fixed crossing across the East River.

Social Distance

The Getaway - Nutmeg:
A quiet, serene place, where you can reconnect with nature, listen to soothing music, and truly clear your mind.  ~Landscaped by Jacky Macpherson.

People who are in Second Life and spend many hours there, they have a small advantage of social distance in real life. Their social life is in second life. How does social distance hurt society if it is for a long period of time?

I am not sure we can answer this until we have gone through it. Eventually, we all need some contact with others. Clearly, social distancing may be the most effective way for people who aren’t infected with the coronavirus to avoid getting it. But it does lead to some major changes in how businesses are run, public events are held, and social interactions occur.

Think of it as a proactive extra precaution to keep yourself and your family safe. If you have children, explain to them that you’re doing this as a way to keep everyone healthy. If you panic, your kids will likely get anxious, so make it clear that this is just another step you’re taking to help the family and the community. Stay Busy during this time. 

These measures don’t just keep people apart: they inevitably keep them from going out, requiring them to keep busy at home.
“I have at least 10 books I’ve never read and I’m like, ‘Oh, this will come in really handy,’” she said. “I was planning to start a drawing class in April because I’ve always wanted to get into painting. I’ve got all these art supplies. Now, I can pull up some YouTube videos, and teach myself to work on that.” 
Go into Second life and make an avatar and explore the virtual world.

Devin's Eye - your dream,your destination

Home of Ally Mildor & Roy  Mildor  and Mainstore Top Striker
An amazing place to chill, dance and discover Devin´s Eye. Fantastic photo spots.

“The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.” —Joseph Campbell.

Devin's eye is full of surprises. There are many spots to just sit and enjoy the beauty of nature and when you are really quiet it feels like you are there and this is real. Feel the breeze from the ocean that tickles the island and your face. Smell the flowers that color the landscape and pleasure your eyes. 

I appreciate all the time and care that goes into creating a place like this. Humans were never meant to be confined by concrete and steel 100 percent of the time. Within these environments, it's easy to feel like just another face in the crowd. But when we step into nature, we are reminded all living organisms are connected.
Nature, in the purest sense, is where both serenity and wildness coexist in harmony. When we visit it, we feel both peaceful and uneasy all at once. Perhaps this is because all life began in nature and all life ends there.
Nature is the universe's greatest teacher -- it whispers to us that even in the midst of chaos, life finds a way to carry on.
In turn, we emerge from the trees reinvigorated, with the vital knowledge that the current moment is more precious than what has or will happen.
Take a break from all the clubbing and shopping and enjoy nature at Devin's eye. The wilderness is a friend, healer and muse that asks for nothing and gives everything in return.
As Anne Frank once wrote: "The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside... I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles."
