One of Kay Weston’s exclusive items for THE GARAGE FAIR 2016  is this Show Me The Shoes – pose chair.

Icy and I had fun trying out the 5 poses (+5 mirrored poses)  in each chair as we inspected each other’s outfits. Icy found her entire outfit at the current round of Uber, while my outfit is collected from several events.

# 55 Precious

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

In Second Life many people choose to become parents. Parenthood is tricky – in any life, and the support of friends and family helps. My friend Jax has created a beautiful place for families to socialize together.
Precious 3

Families in SL aren’t so different to families in RL. Two people fall in love, and one day their love is expressed by the creation of a child.

That child becomes their whole focus… They love each other still, but now they have this beautiful extension of their love that ‘needs’ them to care for it, love it, pay it attention.

Children teach us about selflessness, as we take on our role of Parenthood.

I created a place in SL called “Precious Families Island” as a celebration of the love couples share here in SL, and the families they create. It is a public place for them to visit, with their children, and spend quality time together.

The island has romantic nooks to explore, beaches to relax on, an area that a group of friends can sit around on pillows and chat, as well as a dance floor which we use to celebrate our Families every week with a weekly party.

I think Precious may be the only place in SL where families come to dance while their babies and children toddle around the dance floor, playing and interacting, among the grown-up’s legs.

A magical place, created to celebrate the dedication of SL parents to their children, to celebrate the love that grows as a family grows, to bring parents together with other parents within SL, and allow them to share their experiences, their knowledge and their stories.

 Precious 2
  A funny thing is that just like people everywhere – friends who have children make frequent hints and suggestions that Kohn and I should join in the joy and have our own child. It makes me smile and shake my head.
If you would like me to write more about the many ‘issues’ around couplehood and parenthood in Second Life TELL ME.

#35 would I? could I?

Say!
In the dark?
Here in the dark!
Would you, could you, in the dark?

from Green Eggs and Ham by Dr Seuss

Patricia Cool Pink back

When someone in Second Life says something silly to a friend like – “You can’t wear that in public!” it gets my hackles up!

I do! I love it, Sam-I-am!
And I would wear it in a boat.
And I would wear it with a goat…

And I will wear it in the rain.
And in the dark. And on a train.
And in a car. And in a tree.
It is so good, so good, you see!

So I will wear it  in a box.
And I will wear it  with a fox.
And I will wear it in a house.
And I will wear it  with a mouse.
And I will wear it  here and there.
Say! I will wear it  ANYWHERE!    (heavily misquoted by me!)

This fabulous, sensuous and beautifully crafted gown by James Mohna Lisa has delicate details, lovely lines and the special SL glue that makes it totally safe to wear anywhere on the grid. Anywhere warm. …and take a bodyguard because you will look ravishing!

I have to confess that quite a few of us decided to form a posse and prove that guy wrong … look out SL here we come!

“I don’t have a bike!”

Imagine – after 7 years in SL I had NO – zilch – zero – not one single motorcycle in my inventory. And I turn up in a party dress at a bike track.

Wearing a sweet glittery, easy to wear bouquet of a party dress from Prism, finished with strappy sandals and my new Byzantine Cross from Vintage Jewels – I was all set to dance the evening away.
