A simple stroll on the beach

Hello everyone!  A brand new round of ReVamped, a Models Giving Back Production, benefiting the National Breast Cancer Foundation, has begun bringing a new twist to the typical sales event on Second Life.  Designers have taken a previous release and have “revamped” it, either turning something an old prim item to mesh, adding mesh body…

Coffee and Scrabble in the early morn after dreams of Spring

Woke to another morning of the temps in single digits here in the mountains of Arizona I realized I had been dreaming of Cherry and Orange Blossoms, the buzz of the bees and the flowers of Spring.  I think I must have gotten a bit chilled last night and wanted the warmth of the Sun. …

The Holidays have arrived at Chez Samsara

I can’t believe we only have 23 days left until Christmas, and for those who celebrate Hanukkah the Menorahs are already unpacked and everyone is all excited for the start of the Holiday on the 6th.  This past year has flown by filled with surprises, joy, pain, heartbreak and above all else, learning.  With the…

Down to the cold part

The peaceful tranquility of Dawn

If you like to sleep late then you probably miss out on one of the most spectacular times of day in my opinion, especially in the Fall.  The frost hangs heavy on what remains of the leaves on the trees and as the Sun edges over the horizon steam rises as the beams instantly bring…

Come a little closer to hear me whisper

I often find during the Fall everyone seems to lose their spunk when it comes to adding color to their wardrobes.  It’s like by Christmas suddenly everyone is putting on bright jewel tones because they are missing the warmth, but the Fall everyone turns to muted tones to mimic the world outside.  I am a…
