[#627] All Along The Watchtower

 

All along the watchtower
Princes kept the view
While all the women came and went
Barefoot servants too

Jimi Hendrix Experience, ♫All Along The Watchtower♫

 

When I was thinking about songs that I felt would go with the visual of this blog I came up with a few of them but the one that stood out was “All Along The Watchtower”. Originally by Bob Dylan, it’s almost always associated with Jimi Hendrix who did a cover version of it a year after it was first recorded. I have nothing against Bob Dylan, the fact remains that I’ve already used some of his songs already and until today have never featured anything from Hendrix, who I have always felt was an amazing talent who left the world too soon. Perhaps maybe some of the best musicians who were gone much too soon could have continued blazing a path or could have fell off the face of the planet but it’s something we’ll never know as we cherish the things they gave us while they were here.

I chose to visit Ironwood Hills, which is a place I enjoy going to when I want to do some kind of post-apocalyptic scenes. Though with this I didn’t throw in any zombies or anything because I’ve done that and I wanted to make it more about anticipation instead of action. While I may not actually be on a watchtower in the scene, I am keeping an eye out with this pose set by Kirek Poses called the “Defense Pack” there are three different poses each with an accompanying rifle. To me the pose I picked really shows that I’m surveying the area but if need but would be ready to defend myself from whatever could be around the corner.

Kirek Poses – Defense Pose Pack

  • Bento static poses (poseball versions included)
  • 3 different poses
  • Rifle for each pose included
  • Pose Fair exclusive until 05/25/19

My wardrobe is a mixture of both old and new but I’m going to focus on the event specific things that have hit some events this month. My glasses are a part of a new gacha from BlankLine that have two different styles of glasses each with different frame colors to play for. Somehow I got lucky and was able to pull the RARE from the machine that includes a HUD that can change the lenses on it with emoji’s and things like that. I am going to have to see if I can get my hands on one of the commons I was looking for because after getting the the most sought after prize, I felt like I shouldn’t keep trying my luck.

I also have been hanging onto these for a bit since Anthem opened because I wanted to break them in for the right scene and they almost made it into the last one but I reserved them for a little longer. I’m talking about the “Kojima Jeans” from Deadwool, and this is I believe the first major jeans release for the store since the collab with Blueberry a few years ago; I may be wrong so if I am I’m sure someone will inform me. These are fantastic and great fitting with several features including three different leg bottom styles (Deep Cuffs, Rolled Up and Stacked) and for those interested in getting the FATPACK there is a cool belt loop chain included but for those of you who just want maybe one or two color choices you’re in luck as well because it is sold separately too.

The beard I picked up from LeLutka maybe a week or so ago has literally been one of my most favorite things ever and seemingly haven’t been able to take photos without it. I think this evening was the first time I went without it as I took Brenna to the big prom that was posted about on Facebook. I wanted to truly clean up well and did so by shaving my face so I looked fresh. I’m sure that by tomorrow the beard will be back or by the time I take the next photo but we will have to see.

[#621] Porn Star Dancing

 

She wraps those hands around that pole
She licks those lips and off we go
She takes it off nice and slow
Cuz that’s porn star dancin’

My Darkest Days (feat. Ludacris, Chad Kroeger and Zakk Wylde), ♫Porn Star Dancing♫

 

It’s been a few since I last did a post (5 days to be exact) but I’ve been taking time to think about a lot of things; this blog being one of them. I think that if I’m going to continue to do things here that I’m going to need to change some of the ways I do them, which is what I’ve taken a small break to figure out. At the top of the list I’ve been going through the list of partnerships that I have and I know that some of them will be trimmed because right now I’m just not at the right place to give everyone the attention they deserve and or they just do not fit my plan going forward.

There are also some things that I’ve made a commitment to events wise but I do not want to be someone who says they will do something and then doesn’t. I will make good on this and finish out the remaining things that I’ve signed up for but after that it will depend on where I am at before I make any further plans or apply for things.

With that off of my chest, today’s entry is another group shot between myself, Brenna, Lucky and Stef with most of us potentially blogging our versions of the scene. At the time of writing this Stef has posted her view of the scene which came out really nicely (in fact I feel it’s the best so far) and I’m sure Lucky’s will come soon as well. I’m not 100% sure that Brenna did anything with this shoot but I’ve linked everyone’s websites so you can click on their names to check out what they all have going.

The soundtrack to this blog was one that I wanted to cover for a while (consider it a bucket list item for blogging) although I’m going to admit that I’m not very confident with how my version turned out. The scene as it was in front of me was much better in person than I feel it came out in finality but I’m probably more critical of myself than anyone.

I’m going to leave it at that for now but definitely check out the links to everyone’s sites and even look them up on Flickr and follow them (as well as fave their great work).

 

But I know a place where there’s always a show
The dollar decides how far you can go

[#620] Be Alright

Equal10 recently opened their April round and it’s definitely a good place to find some cool clothes and accessories for both men and women. Modulus has a new hair there that I was rather excited about getting my hands on as it is based off of a movie character that I am a huge fan of. There was definitely no way that I was going to let this one get away from my styling.

“Wick” is inspired from the character of John Wick (portrayed by Keanu Reeves in 3 different installments of which the 3rd has not been released). This is the first time that Chucky Hollak has tried his had at having a style which a completely parted middle and I think it’s fantastic when pairing it with a great hairbase. Of course I’m mostly a fan of black hair coloring but I can see myself trying out different tones with this hair.

Much like the last blog, my wardrobe consists of items already in my closet but the recent release collab between Tonktastic and Hermony is still really fresh. I experimented by wearing it without either version of the hood to see if it would work and to me I consider it a success and adds even more versatility to an already great article of clothing.

I also have to mention the new “James” skin by The Skinnery that my drinking buddy Mike is wearing. It’s a CATWA only applier and is intended for the Daniel head but he’s rolling with Victor and it still looks good to me. I think though that I’d be interested in seeing what it might look like without the beard (which is how the skin comes) but regardless it’s a good look.

By now it’s likely been noticed that I haven’t done much in the way of features in the last few posts but don’t worry, it’s not something I’m going to do away with because I feel like that is one of the things that combined with my thoughts on what I’m blogging gives this site it’s uniqueness. I have just not put together any scenes with items from sponsored stores or events but there will be more soon, I promise.

On that note, I’m going to turn this over to the credits so if anyone has some free time they can take a shopping break if there’s something here they like. Until the next time we meet I’ll catch you on the flip!

[#598] Can You Build My House With Pieces?

Lovin’ what I’m tastin’
Venom on my tongue
Dependent at times
Poisonous vibrations
Help my body run

Twenty One Pilots, ♫Chlorine

Two collaborations back to back? *gasps* It’s not really all that shocking lately considering that some of my most inspired work has come from working with others and on top of that it is a great time. For this blog I wanted to take this pose by MOTIV8 and show just how versatile it can be. Originally designed for a male couple, Brenna and I tested a theory on if we could create a photo using the “Frisk” couples pose and make it our own.

With poses I feel that if it isn’t 100% clear cut and even if it is, there’s ways to make it work outside of the box thus testing my theory that this pose can be utilized by any couples dynamic and look great. So if you’ve been to The Men’s Jail and thought maybe this pose wasn’t for you…now you have a reason to give it a second look and use it for your photography or blogging.

UrbanStreet provided the tattoos I am wearing with their latest for TMJ called “FlorNa”. I’m a fan of roses and floral patterns and the design of this ink is very well done; this time I even wore the fresh (aka dark) version to really show how it stands out and is super colorful. I would like to believe that there are guys out there who are just as into ink as I am so this has the potential to be very popular on the grid even after the event ends.

My style for this blog even includes jewelry by HK Designs, their “Pathways Necklace” adorns my neck and while it comes with a HUD that includes a lot of colors I couldn’t deviate from my love of silver. The colored versions give off a really nice glow feel which is perfect for the club/rave crowd that enjoy accessories and also bringing a little extra attention their way.

The “Cyber Pant” by Rekt rounds out the items I’m featuring from The Men Jail in this post and the lighting in my photo perhaps does not show them off in the best way possible but I can tell you they are very unique as well as give you two different options for wear (a strapless version which is what I am wearing and a pair with straps).

MOTIV8 – Frisk Couples Pose

  • Bento couples pose (Bento viewer required)
  • Adjustable through build menu (for advanced users)
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail (until 02/28/19)

UrbanStreet – FlorNa Tattoo

  • Omega and Signature Applier HUDs
  • 3 opacity types (Light, Medium and Dark)
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail (until 02/28/19)

HK Designs – Pathways Necklace

  • Original mesh
  • Resizable through clicking
  • HUD includes 11 different color options
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail (02/28/19)

Rekt – Cyber Pant

  • Original mesh
  • Strapped and Strapless versions included
  • Fitted for Signature Gianni only
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail (02/28/19)

Modulus is participating in the Belle Event and for this they’ve released the messy “Rory” hairstyle. The first thing I had in mind was to give it some color so that it would pop with the colors of the tattoo as well as fit in with the song I chose for the blog soundtrack. Keeping that in mind, I used the Monotone HUD and the integrated color picker to find a happy medium.

The result of a bleached and chlorinated hair color helps set the tone for a tune that’s been stuck in my head ever since I heard it for the first time. The messy look definitely coincides with the situation in the scene along with the dice and handcuffs that have yet to come into play in the moment. This is definitely a recommended style and could even help you create a bad boy look as I have done.

Modulus – Rory Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 color packs + integrated tinting HUDs
  • 40 Color FATPACK option also available
  • Left or right mirrored versions in package
  • Exclusive to the Belle Event (until 03/03/19)

Time for me to hit some honorable mentions that make an appearance in this post starting with the “Urban View” backdrop by Paparazzi. It is a really awesome build that has a night time building scheme to it that really gives an excellent ambience for what I wanted to do with the scene; I can’t heap enough praise on the work that Drew Sunflower does with backdrops and skyboxes which makes me look forward to each and every release.

For the ladies, Brenna is wearing the latest double release from Narcisse that is currently part of the Fetish Fair. The “Beaumont Halter Top” and “Fergie Waspie Skirt” are just the thing to make the lady in your life get the blood pumping in your heart and the adrenaline to rush through your veins. I’m only modestly showing this off in my photo but seeing it for yourself is a must.

The Fetish Fair runs through the 2nd of March.

On that note I have covered just about everything that I can think of that is important to the creation of this scene and I can leave you with the styles for both Brenna and I just in case something inspired you and you want to add something to your closet or photography experience. I also have to say that I’m really enjoying using Black Dragon to take my photographs; my confidence has risen several notches once I began utilizing it and I am getting more comfortable with the settings as well.

Thanks for taking the time to visit and I will be back again soon with more great items from the stores and events that I love.

[#597] In The Garage

I’ve got an electric guitar
I play my stupid songs
I write these stupid words
And I love every one
Waiting there for me
Yes I do, I do

Weezer, ♫In The Garage

My apologies to those that might check the site for new content but this last week has been a bit hectic for me but it’s not for bad reasons at all. Usually I am not much for talking about things outside of my photos or certain themes but this is worth talking about in my mind. Our family has been looking to expand and that can often be scary in some instances but in mine and Brenna’s case it’s been pretty awesome.

Alyx (who we also call Elijah) has been a part of our lives for about a week now and sometimes I find it hard to connect with people but this young man is nearly a mirror of me in the fact that we both enjoy graphic work, movies and a whole bunch of other pop culture stuff that makes this seem much like fate (which not everyone believes in). I am not gonna get too much into things right now but I’m enjoying getting to spend time with and even get creative with him.

So what do two nerds that are creative do when they have a little free time? Well they get together and set up a photograph and I get to share my blog process with someone that is interested in it…definitely a win/win in my book.

Alyx introduced me to a new location called Midnight Glory which I would say is a photography sim with a lot of different mechanics to it to allow photo takers and bloggers to roam around and find an interesting spot within the design and being new to it, I told him to find a spot he really liked and it just happened that he has a good eye and it worked to my advantage. The area he found (a garage full of nerd stuff) prompted me to come up with the soundtrack to the post right away.

“In The Garage” has been a jam (I almost could say an anthem) for me for over 20 years and has lots of nerdy and geeky elements in both the verses and chorus. Making references to X-Men comic book characters to even members of the band kiss…but what really hit home is the opening verse talking about a “Dungeon Master’s Guide” which is what Dungeons and Dragons players have used for decades to tell stories of wizards, warriors, and mythic creatures. I was one of those who at the time when it wasn’t such the in thing to do got together with my friends on weekends (and once in a great while on a school night) and we’d have a blast rolling dice and trying to get through a story.

Continuing on with the theme of nerd power, my hair style is an homage to one of the best survival horror games of all time, “Resident Evil 2” which was re-released not long ago as an updated version which current generation graphics. Modulus released the “Leon Hair” at the beginning of the month at the FaMESHed event to commemorate and immortalize it in our virtual leg of the world.

I really like how the hair is parted and sweeps over the eyes without directly falling over them; I also have to say that it really excited me to see this because it was definitely a game I spent a lot of time on back when it was first released. Leon S. Kennedy was a character I grew very fond of and thought of as being a hero and relatable.

Modulus – Leon Hair

  • Original “Nex-Gen” Alpha Mesh
  • 5 Tone Color Pack HUDs + Integrated Tinting
  • 40 Color FATPACK also for sale
  • Left and Right mirrored versions included
  • Exclusive to FaMESHed until 02/25/19

After putting my look together (I didn’t take the photo for this blog right away so I’ve been wearing it for a bit), I was told that I was wearing a Canadian Tuxedo (again). This is not something I consider an issue as virtually I consider myself equals parts Irish and equals part Canadian so wearing this type of attire is my birthright right?

Cold-Ash’s newest release the “FLYNN Denim Jacket” is a major reason why I would suggest a shopping trip to The Men’s Department. I didn’t realize how much this jacket fit in with my overall theme until probably just now because these kind of jackets while still fashionable now were a big thing back in the 90’s which my mindset has been in during this entire blog process.

One of the features I like best about this jacket is that you do have the option to wear it with a built-in hooded sweatshirt or with a regular shirt; to me that makes it worth it just in that respect. Outside of the FATPACK, the event has 6 denim versions to purchase but if you want the best deal and all the options to change the color of the hoodie or shirt you are wearing with it, getting the whole shebang as they say is well worth it.

Cold-Ash – FLYNN Denim Jacket

  • Original Mesh
  • 3 Variations (Jacket Solo, Jacket with Hoodie or Jacket with Shirt)
  • 6 Denim Choices (+1 Fatpack Exclusive)
  • 8 Hoodie Colors
  • 8 Shirt Colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni)
  • Exclusive to The Men’s Department until 02/28/19

Alyx is wearing the latest hair from lock&tuft called “no joke” that is currently available at Shiny Shabby; Alyx is the creator and own of the brand as well. It’s not often that I have conversations with anyone that in turn inspire products that are brought to life within very little time as this hair has. We got to talking about hair styles and I had thrown out the idea for this style and he was willing to give it a shot; it is now at one of the big monthly shopping events for everyone to enjoy.

I will also be wearing this hair myself in an upcoming post but the idea will take some time to put together but I promise that it will be quite a bit of fun.

The quality of the hair is top notch and I can say this without bias as I’ve blogged the brand before these recent events and the color options and how things fit are definitely another reason to shop this store as there are many styles not just for men but also for women as well as unisex styles that will worth both ways. Longer messy styles are definitely in my wheelhouse of interest and I think Alyx’s overall look that he’s put together is pretty dang rad as well if I say so myself (and I do!)

lock&tuft – No Joke

  • Original unrigged mesh
  • Resizeable upon click
  • 5 color packs to choose from
  • FATPACK also available
  • Exclusive to Shiny Shabby until 03/16/19

On that note I feel like there are a lot of credits that have gone into this blog and getting through them to make sure that I’ve crossed my t’s and dottied my i’s is definitely going to take a moment which makes it that time to get this blog ready to post and start getting ready for the next one as I have been rather lethargic this week when it’s come to posting; the month is short enough as it is and I’ve still got some important things I want to share.

I want to say a big thank you to Alyx for joining me on this ride and we had a very good time. This was definitely the beginning of quite a few collaborations in the future if this is any indication because I enjoy working with others when ideas come to mind and with those I have worked with it has been nothing but great times and memories.

So long for now and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

[#596] Can’t Wait One Minute More

I need room to breathe I work for the goals that I set
Wasted time it weighs on my mind
You can bet

CIV, ♫Can’t Wait One Minute More

Hello again everyone! It’s been a few since I last posted and that isn’t normal (well normal for this year anyway) but I needed a little time to recharge and get back on track a little bit. I had most of this photo session set up for a few days before I actually settled down to shoot it but I knew that when I did it was going to be kind of a riot.

A little insight into this post is that the pose that I’m using by Image Essentials was actually an odd suggestion in a conversation with the store’s owner, Kay Weston. I don’t even know how it came about as a considerable amount of time has passed since that talk happened but I am pretty sure that it was just suggesting random pose ideas to be helpful and that was a weird one that happened to come to fruition.

“Party Aftermath” is every bit what it sounds like though I’m kind of using it in a different context in my scene but the same basic idea applies. I think in my case it’s more like my virtual self is looking at things like “Man I really gotta go and well the dog’s doing it why can’t I?” One thing I have to say is that I don’t promote public urination because it’s super unsanitary and you never know what you could be bringing home with you by posting up against a brick wall such as I am in this photo.

Moral of the story is…probably don’t try this at home!

Image Essentials – Party Aftermath 1 Pose & Prop

  • Bento compatible pose (must use Bento viewer)
  • Wet pall prop with built in pose
  • 3 different pose positions to choose from
  • Adjustable via clickable menu
  • Exclusive to the Truth or Dare Affair event until 02/28/19

This blog also contains items from The Men Jail event that I really think people might like including the “Jeon Sweatshirt” by ExalteD. Most of the time I’m not a fan of shirts or jackets where I’m not able to see my hands (because the style has hands in pockets and things of that nature) but this shirt changed my mind some with how it is really long and tied at the ends, which is something I used to do all the time in my younger years.

The FATPACK has really great color options (8 in all) which covers the usual core range of colors and not all men care about having tons of colors so I can say that these are definitely fine enough for the casual consumer that wants a choice but doesn’t desire a lot of it. Of course if just getting one color is the most appealing then it’s a good way to go with the single colors that are also for sale.

ExalteD – Jeon Sweatshirt

  • Original mesh
  • FATPACK available with HUD containing 8 colors
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

Because of the angle of the main photo for the blog it was necessary for me to do a secondary shot that combined more closer looks of other products that cannot be as closely seen. Which brings me to the eyes I am wearing by Gloom which have the designation of the “Insta Collection”, these eyes are very detailed and when taking the close-up that was definitely the case I wanted to make to show you this brand is for real.

There are 8 selectable iris colors in this set that are for sale separately or can be purchased all together in a FATPACK to give you that right color at the right moment you need it. I do not change eyes all that often and I’ll be up front about it because unless it is an item from an event then usually my angles and photos don’t incorporate being that close to my face; if I am going to blog eyes I definitely go for ones that I really like otherwise what’s the point of it?

Gloom – Insta Collection Eyes

  • 8 iris colors via appliers (sold separately and as a FATPACK option)
  • Applier HUDs for CATWA, Genus and Omega
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

Also don’t adjust your eyes! My new ‘do is meant to try to match my top the best it possibly can and I think the Reds HUD that is a part of the “Mike Hair” by Modulus really makes an impression. I feel like the tone that I used within the applier pack really pops with the windlight I played around with to make sure that attention would be not only on the hair but also on the ExalteD sweatshirt.

I love the vibrant tone of this hair and it has that appearance like I could still possibly be drunk and randomly choosing a spot to pee and there happens to maybe be a dog following me and doing what it sees…there’s that possibility too but I’m going to remain tight lipped on that because I can’t reveal all my cards.

Medium type messy hair don’t care!

Modulus – Mike Hair

  • Original “nex-gen” alpha mesh
  • 5 individual color HUDs + integrated color picker
  • 40 color FATPACK also available
  • Left and right mirrored options included
  • Exclusive to Equal10 until 03/05/19

The last item I have on my featured list are the “Sobek Sneakers” by Native Urban. These are styled after one of my favorite sneaker brands of all time and I’m not going to properly name them because I don’t want to cause any issues but if you know anything about shoes then you’ll definitely recognize the style. These particular shoes are not exact to the real deal for obvious reasons but they are close and that makes me love them all the same; especially from one of my favorite brands.

I have other versions from other stores that are similar but the one things I can say about these is the absurd amount of customization that goes along with them; there is a way to color just about every single part of the shoe to make them absolutely your favorite sneaker. For longtime fans of Native Urban I know that you won’t be disappointed with these shoes because it doesn’t matter if you are a skater or just someone who likes low tops that are about as classic as they come, you’ll want to sport these out on the grid….I’ve been wearing them for several days already.

Native Urban – Sobek Sneakers

  • Original mesh
  • 15 customizable parts (FATPACK exclusive)
  • 17 colors (FATPACK exclusive)
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to TMD until 02/28/19

I have to say this was definitely a longer blog than I intended but it’s been quite a few days since my last one so putting something this big together to kickstart everything was a necessity in my book. I covered a lot of ground from great stores and events which should at least get some of you hopefully out there before the weekend ends or at the start of the week.

On that note though I think it is definitely time to wrap this up and post it up so I can do a little promoting and also begin work on the next look and scene which I’ve yet to determine but I’ve slowly started to work on it. I’ll leave you all with the style info and perhaps I’ll run into you at Man Cave which just started today and I’ve seen some things that could have lots of potential.

Catch you all again very soon!

My last blog was a bit on the heavy side and to maintain the balance, I chose to do something upbeat and also because I really wanted to show off this pose by Mouni Poses that is one of the many couples poses at the Valentine’s Pop Up that still has 4 days left before it closes down. That means if you’re planning to do some kind of sweet and romantic pose with your significant other then don’t wait until the last minute and be a sad bum because you’ve forgotten.

“Shallow” is the name of the pose and maybe I’m not reading into the overall look of the pose but I don’t find anything shallow about it. To me it is just a couple sitting together with him gazing at her in a very sweet way (but that could just be the way I see it?) However, there may be a little disinterest on Brenna’s part maybe because chocolate and animals tend to overrule male attention but I still don’t feel that it is shallow but still a wonderful pose.

At this months round of The Men Jail, you can get this outfit by Gild called “Lazy Pants Combinaison” which is a complete mesh outfit of a sleeveless shirt with long rolled up pants that I purposely wore in Black and Pink to go with the Valentine’s Theme that it seems to be going on. Each pants color comes with a version with a black shirt or a white shirt giving you the option to choose what you like best.

I am a fan of this outfit because of the fact that it is loose fitting and not binding to the body; it adds to the overall look of comfort while still being very stylish. Gild is one of those brands that I seek out when they are at an event because I know that there will be several good options and the clothing is of high quality without making me have to decide between their item and another because usually I can get both.

Gild – Lazy Pants Combinaison

  • Original mesh
  • 4 pants colors to choose from (sold separately)
  • FATPACK is also available
  • Fitted for Belleza (Jake) and Signature (Gianni) mesh bodies
  • Exclusive to The Men Jail until 02/28/19

For the second straight blog I’m wearing the “Troy Hair” from Modulus and I can hear some of my friends saying something about me actually wearing something twice in a row but I’m wearing the hair because I like it and in this look I kind of feel like I might be a Troy so it works out well. Also to be fair in the last photo I did it wasn’t easy at all to see the hair with the lighting and darkness of the pool so I wanted to give a better look (with a shot taken in daylight).

Considering that I did just blog this hair, I’m not going to list features because it’s already a part of the one before. Moving to those of you ladies that may browse this site for your guy or see something that Brenna might be wearing (like the romper and hair accessory she’s wearing in this post), you’ll know that Collabor88 or just C88 for most people (abbreviations are the thing these days). Also the valentine’s Pomeranian by Black Bantam is also at the event and I have a feeling that it is likely a top seller there as animal makers such as them and Jian create such realistic looking pet decor.

On that note, I’m going to wrap this up and get it sent out because I’m working with a deadline of sorts and I’d like not to go past it, however, before I do go I have to say that working with the Black Dragon viewer so far has been an experience but it’s been rather pleasant so far. I feel that it gives my photos a little extra from what I have noticed and others have also. I always want to make sure that my photos are reflective of what I see in my head and I believe that the more comfortable I get with Black Dragon, I can achieve that.

The weekend is about over now so it’s back to the grind but I wish everyone a productive and hopefully enjoyable week. I’ll be posting as much as I can if the spirit moves me and the creativity does as well. There are a few ideas I’d like to get out of my brain this week if possible before I end up forgetting them (would be a shame to waste something I feel is a good idea).

Until the next blog, be well and take care of you and yours and maybe try sometime new that you’ve been wanting to do but have hesitated. Good things may come of it and you’ll wonder what took you so long.
