All of these things got me here…

I know not everyone likes playing music on their blogs, because it’s annoying? I’m not really
sure what the reasoning is, but I’ve seen it said that its a bad idea to add music to be
automatically played for your viewers.  I have thought about including links to my playlists that I
use to get me in the mood for picture editing.

I don’t know what it was about this picture, but when I was working on it, I kept playing Every
Breath You Take by The Police over and over.  I don’t think it has anything to do with the lyrics,
but it sort of just grabbed me and said: “Play me!”
If you wanna listen along as you look through my pictures you are more than welcome to follow this link.

Even when you are super happy, sometimes you just need to listen to a sad, melancholy song.
It reminds me of a line from one of my all-time favorite movies, Labyrinth, “I don’t know why,
but every now and again, for no reason at all, I need you, all of you.”  It’s not that I want to live in
my painful moments, but it is accepting that there was bad and then remembering all of the good
that came shining through.

Tonight we talked about things for which we are thankful because Thanksgiving is just around the corner.
I am so thankful for all that has happened to me in the last year, of course.  I’m so thankful for all that I’ve
done and seen since coming to Second Life.  I’m actually thankful for the disappoints, heartbreaks, scary
stalker moments, lost friends, etc.  I might have felt like I was losing my mind in the middle of all of it,
but I was really learning valuable lessons that maybe I should have already known.

I grew up in a very conservative home, with extremely conservative parents.  I also grew up just before
technology and the media took over daily life as it has now.  To put it simply, I was sheltered. I loved my life,
but it didn’t teach me to have tough skin.  It didn’t teach me to deal with bullies.  It didn’t teach
me how to survive getting my heart broken. To be perfectly honest, I don’t think I really learned
these lessons until Second Life.
I realize how sad that is to say, but I guess that is why I am thankful.  I’m a much tougher
bird these days.  Also, it was learning all of these things that got me to where I am today.
I really love where I am today.
