Every time I close my eyes
There’s a place I go
When I’m alone
Do anything I want
Be anyone I want to be

Hold it close won’t let this go
Dream catch me when I fall
Or else I won’t come back at all

Hidden secrets to be found here

I am in world writing this post, listening to the exquisite violinist, Xi Yang (Young Zeid in SL). I have this playing loud on speakers, and people walking down my street are stopping to listen, as he plays a selection from Scott Joplin ~ Niccolo Paganini ~ Vittorio Monti ~ L.Van Beethoven ~ & W.A.Mozart. This is an experience you will never forget, and shows the amazing possibilities of our virtual environment.

It is nearly midday on Friday, a beautiful spring day, people are walking to the shops enjoying the sunshine, and listening to this amazing music, playing live from half a planet away. It makes my heart sing!

This concert was brought to us by Virtually Speaking, organiser is Widget Whiteberry. Contact her for more information!

The dream must end, and I must return to my physical life to go to work

But I know I will be back, it draws me here

Be here!

The road, still winding up and on
Over the bare, brown endless hills
Is empty now. The sheep are gone,
And slowly silence comes and fills
The trees, the hills, the hour, the day
With something far more sweet than sound.
While on the sky-line far away
A filmy saffron veil is found.
And slowly now the sun goes down
And gradual shade with gentle hand
Soothes with a smile the fretful frown
And brusque hot-temper of the land.

Here follows and example of New Zealand contemporary music. This is because the beauty of the Alchemy Immortalis sims remind me so much of where I live, New Zealand.

The Last Day of June – Jonny Love (A local boy;))

My friend Sasy Scarborough has just done a blog post as a tribute to the 80s, which I am sure many of us can relate to – here it is

I thought I would do a little tribute to the 1960s. This was a time of great social upheaval and turmoil for many young people, and also their parents who lived with still vivid memories of a major world conflict.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music

Flowerchild

What has this got to do with anything today? Only as a reminder to ourselves that despite generations passing, people are still of the same variety. We suffer the same angst growing up as our parents did, we suffer the same hurts and pains as we journey through our lives. One major difference is however, that now we can endure this in both a physical and a virtual environment. My feeling is that in a virtual world, emotions are often heightened, both the good ones and the not so good, for many different reasons.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music

In this virtual world, we often strive to be the person we have always wanted to be but were never brave or strong enough to be. Or perhaps we want to be the person we believe our friends think we are. Sometimes, it all comes undone.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music

For me, my virtual life gives me many choices of how I present, who I want to be, how I choose to interact, how I deal with the usual social issues confronting all of us. The choices I make are for me, and each of us needs to make our own decisions on how to lead our virtual life. But you know, sometimes the easiest option and the best path is to be yourself. You’d be surprised how many people will love and respect you for that.

Make Your Own Kind Of Music

The song below is a tribute to all my friends – past present and future! The precious gems of my life 🙂 And also in gratitude to a generation of troubled people back in the 60s, who are the grandmas and grandpas of today.

I bought a lovely princess dress from Deviance a few days ago, whilst on one of those fun shopping trips with some girlfriends. Justice Infinity was wearing new leather pants, totally awesome, so she TPed me and Sasy Scarborough to the store. Well, what a find this was – incredible textures on a fairly small collection. Lovely gowns and fairy/elf costumes, the amazing leather pants, and some other delicacies.

I photographed this at the home of The Dream Merchants, and became immediately surrounded by sheep, hence the title of the post 🙂

Meet The Sheep

I get the feeling I’m being lectured by a sheep

Meet The Sheep

I made the mistake of labelling the sheep as Suffolk, rather than Swaledale cross. For my error I have my ear chewed out.

Meet The Sheep

I promise not to do it again, and make my excuses to run off.

Meet The Sheep

Just in time to change clothes and accept a lovely fresh apple that a kindly old lady brought to my door 🙂

Only For Sheep from The Bureau. I could not resist adding this, it charted at number 6 in Australia back in the 80s and I loved it. A british band consisting of ex-Dexys, I don’t think it charted there. Says something about Australians, maybe 😉

On June 24, Iranian Superstar Andy Madadian went into an LA recording studio with Jon Bon Jovi, Richie Sambora and American record producers Don Was and John Shanks to record a musical message of worldwide solidarity with the people of Iran. This version of the old Ben E. King classic is not for sale – it was not meant to be on the Billboard charts or even manufactured as a CD…..it’s intended to be downloaded and shared by the Iranian people…to give voice to the sentiment that all people of the world stand together….the handwritten Farsi sign in the video translates to “we are one”. If you know someone in Iran – or someone who knows someone in Iran – please share this link

Neda Soltani, the 26 year old Iranian woman, whose brutal death has become a rallying cry for the international community, was laid to rest today. From prayer vigils to a Facebook site honoring “The Angel Of Iran”, many are hoping that her senseless death will not be in vain. Unfortunately many more will probably die as revolutions more often than not are bloody. I hope that the Iranians can soon be as free as we are to pursue our hopes and dreams.

Hey Mr Dreamseller, where have you been,
tell me have you dreams I can see?
I came along, just to bring you this song,
Can you spare one dream for me?

dream

Again I return to the realm of The Dream Merchants, to revel in the growing environment being created.

You won’t have met me, and you’ll soon forget me,
so don’t mind me tugging at your sleeve.
I’m asking you, if I can fix a rendezvous.
For your dreams are all I believe.

dream

This world is growing before my eyes…

Meet me on the corner when the lights are coming on,
and I’ll be there, I promise I’ll be there.
Down the empty streets we’ll disappear until the dawn
if you have dreams enough to share.

dream

I find a notice nailed to a post – this is intriguing

Lay down your bundles, of rags and reminders,
and spread your wares on the ground.
Well I’ve got time, if you deal in rhyme,
I’m just hanging around.

dream

I know I must return soon, to see the magic created by Dream Merchants, Alchemy and Immortalis Cyannis

Lyrics: ‘Meet Me On the Corner’ by Lindisfarne from the album Fog On the Tyne (1971)

Unable to resist the lure Of the Dream Merchants’ latest creation, I slip back through the portal. I am greeted by the familiar misty hills, awash with fine rain.

I return

I follow the sound of bleating sheep, and discover that Head Ram has cast himself adrift, and will need to be rescued.

I return

I decide to wade into the low surf to rescue the wayward beast, before the tide comes in and makes it near impossible.

I return

I return to shore, to a hero’s welcome by the rest of the flock

I-return

This close up shows you the intricate detail of painting on the jewelry available from the Dream Merchants.

I return

I glance up, and see a single figure at the horizon. The Innkeeper I presume. I will return another day

I return
