#346 Footprints in the sand with GizzA, and Bauhaus Movement

Flavia Weedn ~ said, ‘Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while, leave footprints in the sand and we are never the same afterwards.”
I truly believe that everyone we meet, we meet for a reason. We have encountered this specific person for a purpose. We have friends who remain, friends who come in our lives but soon depart and friends who just pass us by in our daily lives. Even if it is just running into a old friend whilst waiting for a coffee. There is a reason sprinkled in our path that we may not even see at this moment in time, why we need people along the way.

There’s a quote that goes something like, “People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime,” which really resonates with my life.  Maybe the simple reason of bumping into your long lost friend, is something that hasn't been finished. Each action has a direct impact.  Instead of dwelling on the pain of saying goodbye to a friendship, look at it as a chapter that was filled with many memories and now lessons that will forever live with you. Sometimes we are welcomed by friendships that aren’t meant to last forever, but are meant to teach us and help us grow on our beautiful journeys. I see alot of this on Secondlife, and hear the pain from people that used to have sisters, brothers, family and for some reason has been a fall out along the way.

I wouldn't dwell on what could be, we have to learn when to let go and continue on our journey. It takes courage to stand up and realize that sometimes you need to move forward. This doesn’t mean things have to end nasty, it just means that you are mature enough to see that these people may be holding you back in a way that at this moment in your life is not what you want.

#345 Coffee Talk with Gizza

For my 345 blog entry for SL Destinations R Us (feeling very sequential), I remember my very first blog which was called SL Coffee Talk.  (

Every morning without fail, - 'James' (name withheld) used to provide me as soon as I walked in the door my first morning Vittoria coffee.  It was steaming waiting for my arrival.
He knew if I was ill I would call and say not today.  Yes I am a creature of habit, always arriving at work at the same time, and without fail there it was my delicious Vittoria coffee just sitting waiting for my arrival. (I hate it hot). The line of people that used to meet there, anything from the local sergeant, the teacher, the kids on the way to high school. All sorts used to frequent Jame's Cafe, and so now traveling an hr and a half away from my favorite coffee shop, I miss the sights, smells and sounds that I used to love.

One other favorite coffee place of mine to visit when travelling in SL is that of Neva Sky Villi. My first home with Neva Crystall. Definately a must see destination for you all.

Wearing the beautiful and most creative boho outfit from GizzA, called the Matilda Outfit, I bring to you our destinations for today:-

#344 Dreamin as the heat takes a bow with Cheekypea,Truth and Valentina E

Summer came and left without a warning
All at once I looked and you were gone
And now you're looking back at me
Searching for a way that we can be like we were before

Now I'm back to what I knew before you
Somehow the sun doesn't look the same
I'd give my life for one more night
Of having you here to hold me tight; oh, please
Take me there again.

#343 It's a Waiting Game with GizzA

Sitting here sneezing, tissues beside me, head throbbing. All I ever seem to do is play the waiting game. Waiting at the doctors in line, other people staring thinking wonder what has she got..flu, cold, lurgy, do I move away?

I have to admit that whilst they are looking at me, I am doing the same, trying to hold my breath so I don't end up picking up another bug this year. So far this being the second time this winter and it has definitely taking hold. Bring back the summer I say.

All my life I seem to be playing the waiting game. Waiting for news about an advancement in my career, waiting in line for a bus, waiting in line to get my car serviced, waiting for the doctor to come out and tell me what I already know so I can receive a medical certificate to give to work. Waiting for that moment that life will slow down and I can breathe again. Do you ever sometimes feel all you ever do is wait, wait, wait?

Bringing to you some latest pieces which I have been tardy not to blog and do apologise as I am ill, I bring to you our destination for today:-
