Stay Focused

I wish you were here, or I was there, or we were together anywhere.

I’m thankful for sure, for having decent internet in these crazy times. Internet and Second Life makes it possible for us to be together, sort of. I can’t imagine how people managed long distance relationships before we had internet. They must have had some really big phone bills! I’m missing you terribly but staying focused on our plan for when we get to actually be together again. Having a plan, or a goal, is good. Sharing that plan with someone, even better.

I’m wearing a couple new releases from FKD today! The John Athletic Tank is FKD’s first original mesh creation, I’m so proud to be wearing it! Fatpack gives you 20 different tank colors to choose from and 20 different colors for the underarms section. The tank is compatible with Belleza Jake (shown on me) and Signature Gianni male bodies and made to tuck perfectly into the FKD Raphael Shorts. I’m wearing the Raphael Shorts Black Tropics which are available exclusively for the ongoing Good Vibes Hunt.

The beautiful sleeve tattoo is from TAOX TATTOO and called Never Fail! It’s a unisex tattoo, comes in black and color versions and three intensities. All the appliers and BoM layers too!

Hold Your Head Up Keep Your Head Up

Sweet dreams are made of this
Who am I to disagree?
I travel the world and the seven seas
Everybody’s looking for something

Lennox/Stewart – Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)

Here we are in our existances, trying to make sense of our lives and to survive. Despite the obstacles we encounter, we must move on.

Almost to the day 15 years ago, Annie Lennox performed my favourite Eurythmics song, Sweet Dreams, live at 46664 Arctic concert in Tromsø, Norway. She performed before Nelson Mandela and thousands of people who showed up to support the cause. It was June 11th 2005. It was Northern Norway at its most beautiful. In the Midnight Sun. I was there, it was amazing.

46664 was a series of AIDS benefit concerts played in honour of Nelson Mandela by South African and foreign musicians between 2003 and 2008.
