Stumbled on this interesting sim while looking for rain animations.  The flavor and the imagery is truly marvelous. You can find Innsmouth at:

Second Life places: Matanzas Island, home of Skate Foss

Had a lovely time tonight visiting my new friend Skate Foss (who I met through Twitter) on her beautiful sim: Matanzas Island. Skate has several  lovely places for rent there for anyone who wants a tropical island refuge for their second life home. She kindly gave me a tour of the public areas for residents, as well as her own beautiful home.

We began the tour in the greenhouse, a place for residents to gather and enjoy quiet conversation, perhaps over a cup of herbal tea grown from the herbs right there.

Just outside the greenhouse is a lovely waterfall, and while the climb up the waterfall is a bit treacherous and slippery, it is well worth the surprise at the top!

Right at the top of the hill is a sheltered nook that holds a tropical rain forest complete with brightly colored birds and even the occasional rain shower.

Skate's own lovely home built of glass and stone is on the beach below.  It has a marvelous view of the ocean.

If you stop by to visit Skate, you will likely land in the public dock area for residents. There are boats for sailing and a nice beach area for swimming and for beach parties. Ask Skate to show you the homes she has for rent; each is different and all are surrounded by sand dunes offering privacy from neighbors. A peaceful and tranquil place to live. No griefers or rudeness allowed!

Matanzas is a beautiful place to see as well as a great place to live. I am delighted to be able to call Skate Foss a friend, and was honored to be invited to visit her there!

Trivia Friday Night at Callahan's

Trivia Night at Callahan's , originally uploaded by Tsai Jie.
I like to spend Friday nights at Callahan's Crosstime Saloon. Last night it was the usual crowd: Talvin, Dianna, Cisop, Hring and some new folks I hadn't met before. Amanda in a new Victorian gown, Bess as Queen E. the 2nd (which was the theme for trivia). And Spiff joined me when he popped on, too. That's us at the table on the right.

Friday nights are always fun at Callahan's you should come by if you are free. It is always at 5:30 SLT at oh, and Tuesdays are Pundays, and that's fun, too!

BTW, Hring won, and in 2 weeks (January 22nd) he will host Trivia on "Books and Authors," so mark your calendars!

Today's Song: "Bring on the Wonder" by Susan Enan

I can't see the stars anymore living here
Let's go to the hills where the outlines are clear

Bring on the wonder
Bring on the song
I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long

I fell through the cracks at the end of our street
Let's go to the beach, get the sand through our feet

Bring on the wonder
Bring on the song
I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long

Bring on the wonder
We got it all wrong
We pushed you down deep in our souls for too long

I don't have the time for a drink from the cup
Let's rest for a while 'til our souls catch us up

Bring on the wonder
Bring on the song
I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long

Bring on the wonder
We got it all wrong
We pushed you down deep in our souls, so hang on

Bring on the wonder
Bring on the song
I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long.

Spiff Whitfield, a friend I haven't seen in ages, took a moment to come see my new digs, and we danced in the sunset there.

Beautiful places

places I've forgotten where, originally uploaded by Tsai Jie.

Found this gorgeous sci-fi-ish sim ages ago and forgot to label the picture with the SURL! Now I don't know where it is! Anyone recognize this?

A Song for a New Year: Amanda Palmer "Hurt" Boston Pops - NYE 2009

In her introduction to this song Amanda Palmer says everything I have been feeling for the past three months:

Amanda Palmer: "It's been a really hard year for a lot of people and for me in a lot of ways... I am a firm believe in that there is no darkness without light and no light without darkness... If you can't go to the really dark places then you can't really have much joy... I have lost other people this year... I want to dedicate this song to putting everything in this year behind us...."
