Fairy Tale

Fairy Tale

“Fairy tales were not my escape from reality as a child; rather, they were my reality — for mine was a world in which good and evil were not abstract concepts, and like fairy-tale heroines, no magic would save me unless I had the wit and heart and courage to use it widely.”
Terri Windling

Sunset

Sunset

“Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time. How would it feel I remember wondering to be always together yet forever apart?”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Travel has been an important part of my life, as has art. When I was in London, I visited the National Museum and relished the beautiful artwork. I have traveled to various museums around the world as I had the opportunity to enjoy the artwork – paintings, sculpture and more – whenever opportunity arose.

Because of this, I love when a new installment of Cica Ghost is ready and am always up to going to visit! One of my favorite pictures of an adventure I shared with Damian is taken at a Cica Ghost sim from a time long past (hard to believe we’ve known each other so long Damian!).

So I landed at the latest installment – Dogwood – and lo and behold, I landed on Cica Ghost themselves! Cica was friendly and personable and said Hello and nice to meet you. I didn’t want to disturb and went about my business taking pictures because they were busy putting the finishing touches on the sim – I think? And also greeting people who were landing. It was really lovely! I mean how awesome is it to be greeted by Cica Ghost!

One of my favorite stores – Ricielli – is having a summertime hunt. I love this particular hunt as Ricielli is doing something I haven’t seen before. They are offering two options. For 15L per hunt item you can purchase the copy version or the no copy/transfer version. I got the transfer versions and handed out the extra items to friends! In each package there were copies of clothing items for different mesh bodies, so I kept the Maitreya copy and passed the copy of the Slink Hourglass, Isis, and Freya to friends! Win Win!

Lean on me.

You can lean on me.

I remember roller skating to the song “Lean on Me” at the roller rink as a teen. It was what you did on Friday nights while you held some boys hand. It was the cool kid thing to do. It kept most of us out of trouble back then too. Kept us off the streets and out from drinking or doing drugs. It was a great loss when the roller rink shut down.

A lot of kids turned to drinking in my small town when the rink shut down. Parties in sheds and barns and the like. I remember some accidents on back gravel roads that were pretty bad. Families didn’t talk about it much. You kept such things hush hush. And then “Lean on Me” took on a different meaning for all of us.

We all depended on each other to just to get through high school. Growing up in a small town and getting through high school when there isn’t support is a difficult prospect. You don’t have the cultural “to dos” of the city… and people think small town living is this great thing… but tell that to the five kids that died by suicide in my small town that year. And there were only 22 in my graduating class.

Lean on me. I lean on Damian a lot. He’s my rock. When everyone else cracks and breaks down… Damian keeps going. He thinks he isn’t that strong, but he underestimates his own strength. No matter how tough things are… he keeps going and he never gives up. When I got sick last year in July and couldn’t be online for him, he stood by me. He waited until I was well and relied only on infrequent contact and didn’t give up on me.

Lean on me. Or more accurately… lean on him. I’ve leaned on him. I only hope that he feels he can lean on me.

Lean on me, Damian. You’ve been there for me.
