Gold, always believe in your soul

with 4 comments

“Gold
Always believe in your soul
You’ve got the power to know
You’re indestructible, always believe in, ‘cos you are Gold” ~ Spandau Ballet

Couldn’t have said it better myself!  Your soul thinks and acts much better than your ego and conditionings. It loves you alone and considers humanity as part of itself in one contiguous whole. Beautiful.  Another reason to consider that if you hurt somebody, you’re hurting yourself and if you help somebody by a little act of love you’re moving on the Universal level with faith and maturity.

The Chinese Way

“Take a journey back in time
Leave the western world behind
Cross the mountains to Peking
Where the paper lanterns gently swing

The Chinese way
Who knows what they know
The Chinese legend grows” ~ Level 42

Celestial Fisherman

*~*~*

A beautiful new bed from :: Newchurch :: gave me the idea for the scene. It’s called the “Celeste Tufted Bed” and is available at The Cosmopolitan Event for the next couple of weeks. I also had a Heron from │T│L│C│ Home Collection so I got this chap fishing during dusk.  Herons fish mostly at dawn and dusk and so they are rarely noticed in the garden. Each day, an adult heron needs about 13 ounces of food, which is the equivalent to three 6″  koi or ten 2″ goldfish and they take twice as much as this when they are feeding young. Young herons teach themselves to fish and when they leave the nest in June – July, small garden ponds are attractive to them because they provide easy fishing – little wotsits!  If you are wondering where your pond fish are disappearing to, the herons have probably taken them for supper. Although herons feed in water, they nest high in trees. The breeding colony is known as a heronry. A large number of birds can nest very close together in the treetops.

Back to the bed. Celeste has a Land Impact of 10 with Permissions of Copy/Modify. I love it because when you sit on the bed, the covers are removed and the sheets are shown. When you get up again, it’s instantly made. If only the same thing happened in real life!  There’s a texture change menu for 12 cheerful colours for the tufted portion and also the same for the bedding. Some great combinations are possible. Arrchie got a nice warm red tufting with cream sheets going on last night. Because the bed is Modify, you can also use the Edit tool to tint the existing colours a bit darker or lighter.  There’s some peaceful sleep poses – 10 in all, 24 poses for couples and in the Adult version you get a great menu of 34 intimate poses.  All animations are adjustable and there’s swap facility, too.

My Heron is fishing in a dish! Called, “My Little Pond Plate”, this is a Japanese designer I found recently called Maru Kado, who makes the most exquisite miniature things.
