Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn’t methodical, but jazz isn’t messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians. Jazz is abandon. – Nat Wolff
Jazz stands for freedom. It’s supposed to be the voice of freedom: Get out there and improvise, and take chances, and don’t be a perfectionist – leave that to the classical musicians. – Dave Brubeck

I also did a teaser video of the Shotgun Jazz Club Gacha Set by KraftWork which you can watch above. I really enjoyed putting it together and how this collection was able to inspire me to create something that I am truly proud of.

I’ve mostly been out of the blogging loop and have decided to stay that way for the most part. But as always I am slightly pulled back in by; The Mother of Bloggers, Queen of Photography! Yes this is my personal name for her and I will continue to use it but who else could I be speaking about other than Strawberry Singh!
So she has decided to being Monday Meme’s once again and I couldn’t be happier, as it’s something that I have always enjoyed doing. Also I must note it’s something that can make me blog at least once a week again which isn’t too much for me. Anyways onto this week’s Meme!
I know, I am not smiling but there is a reason for that. I have the AnyPose Expression Hud, which I find quite useful for pictures. There is one thing, I HATE the smiles.. looks like I am going to break into someone’s home and murder them as they sleep…or as if I was giving too many ‘happy’ pills to try to stabilize my mood. So then I went looking at the Loud Mouth which also had me left more than a bit disappointed. So my theme slowly began to take form, I’m angry; this should be so fucking simple! And there I got it, channel my anger into this and make a future mug shot picture because truth be told, I hated smiling for school pictures and was made not once but twice to retake pictures by my mother! So I just used my [Whatever] Teeth 2.0 Pierced that I always wear but with the ‘Hooked’ Mesh Alpha Included! So there you have it, perhaps a bit outside of the box but this is me that we are talking about after all.
It’s been 4 months since I have shut down this blog but I have been debating with myself whether or not to start it back up again or not. I might simply use it to show the pictures that I edit, giving credits of the items worn and that’s all. I’ve really come to enjoy editing photos and learning more and more tricks as well as figuring different things out within Photoshop. I suppose in a way it became my safe haven during the end of the summer and early fall and I would like to show off what I now can do. It’s simply a matter of not letting it control my life as it once did with the need to post each and every single day like I tried to do once before. Posting would be pretty all over the place,if I started once more which is fine by me. I simply want to enjoy it and not let it rule or control my time within SL.
So for now I will continue to debate and leave you with a picture that I did a few days ago.
“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” – D. H. Lawrence
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.” – Jawaharial Nehru
I wanted another chance to show off the some of the lovely pieces being offered by Mandala during this round of Collabor88.
“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson
I apologize for the lack of posting for the past few days. I’ve been busy quite a bit in RL due to my daughter going on vacation and getting ready for a friend who is visiting me. I will be taking a vacation from this blog from June 11- June 18! I might get out a post or two in the morning if I have time to do such before my guest arrives; if not you’ll be hearing from me again on June 19’th hopefully if everything goes well. I hope that you all are enjoying your summer so far. ♥
Sometimes being a blogger is a pretty thankless job. I know that many people think that as a blogger you get everything for free. Let me clear that up right now, most bloggers do not get things for free. I, myself have not gotten a thing for free. I simply blog about things that I like or love which I was planning on blogging anyways. I felt the need to point this out after a few notecards, I have gotten over the past few days. Honestly it’s crushed me a bit that people can be so cruel and unkind, when a person is simply doing something that they enjoy. I will say that if such happens again, I am out and this blog will be update every once in a blue moon and not daily.
All bloggers should be treated with respect and kindness, we are sharing things that we like, tips, eve ideas of places you might not have known of to explore. We take the time for photographs& editing, write-up, making sure that all of our information is correct, for you the people. Some of us are quicker than others with getting it all done, I take about an hour or two from start to finish. Please remember that the next time you want to be cruel to a blogger for something as simple as forgetting a Landmark or giving an old one for a store that has moved.
If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing at all, our mothers told most of us that saying as children; it still applies here and now as adults.
Sorry no photos for you today, I’m simply burned out from the past few days and not feeling it. Hopefully I’ll have something nice for you all tomorrow. Take Care ♥
