'Tis the Season

We are approaching Christmas 2011 and the winter season in Second Life® has been in full swing. I am not much for celebrating the holidays but this year has been fortified with catching up with people on the Grid and participating in a few holiday themed events. I DJ'd on Saturday at "Santacon in SL" which was sponsored by the Burn2 group (who are really wonderful and fun people) and they are the same group that does the Burning Man festivals here in our virtual world. Then Saturday evening I went to the KMadd Winter Christmas Ball. The theme was White Fantasy Couture and Winter Jefferson won Best Dressed Male and yours truly won Best Dressed Female--Thanks Maddox and Kirk for another beautiful event!. The highlight of the day however was seeing everyone and having a chance to talk and just socialize. That is the true essence of the communities in our online world to me. Thank you for everything! Here is my outfit from the evening and a big shoutout to June Dion and Bare@Rose for being a long time, amazing and creative designer and whom I consider a true corner stone in the industry! Happy Holidays!

Wintertime Love

It's winter in North America and despite not having any snow yet here in the heartland the wind is turning bitter and the air crisp. I really love the last transition between fall and winter and the little kid in me looks forward to the first falling snowflakes. I was gone from Second Life® for awhile as an active citizen, but the fashions always bring me back to the fold. I am the lost kitty always seeking other adventures and working through the struggles of such, but in the end I find my way home, back to the world that I will always love.

I usually theme my rare blog posts with a song and lyrics. I love music and how it makes me feel to hear. Today I was influenced with The Doors song "Wintertime Love." I hope to blog more, so much good things out on the grid and it just keeps getting better! I'm ready for 2012 and the end of the world baby!

Snow Day 1

"Wintertime winds blow cold the season
Fallen in love, I'm hopin' to be
Wind is so cold, is that the reason?
Keeping you warm, your hands touching me"

Snow Day 4

"Come with me dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
You are so warm
My wintertime love to be"

Snow Day 2

"Winter time winds blew and freezin'
Comin' from northern storms in the sea
Love has been lost, is that the reason?
Trying so desperately to be free"

Snow Day 3

"Come with me dance, my dear
Winter's so cold this year
And you are so warm
My wintertime love to be"
