Shine Bright, Shine Right

Beacon

(epic music begins)

“You think you have won! What is light without dark? What are you without me? I am a part of you all. You can never defeat me. We are brothers eternal!”

“Actually, that’s not true.  Hate to break it to you since you are the Lord of Darkness and all, but we are all beacons of light.  Sure, some of our lights are much dimmer than others, but the potential to shine bright is there and is waiting for it’s catalyst.
Oh and as far as you being indestructible….
…i love u.”
(epic music scratches to a halt)
GAME OVER

That’s my take on how the movie Legend should have ended.
‘Course, it would have been a total flop at the box office and probably ruined Tom Cruise’s budding career.
(There is a God!)
But, the message still stands true.
We are all beacons of light and have the potential to shine bright to lighten and give strength to someone else’s day.
And guess what?
When you shine right (no forced words or fake smiles) which is from the depths of your soul, you glow naturally.
I’ve never mastered the poker face, so when I am going through some sort of pain in my life, it shows.  However, my beacon, even though walled off at the time, finds it’s way through small cracks and tiny crevices shinning outward — connecting to someone who needs it.
Their face changes.
A smile of their own begins to form and because of that, for the moment,
life isn’t so hard.
Not for either of us.

PEACHY QUEEN

<rings the big brass bell overhead>
It’s elegance time! Time to get all dressed and dolled-up with Zoomy.
<checks in the closet>
Let’s see.. Shoes?  Check.
Earrings?  Check.
Hair? <gropes head> Check.
Soyeux Mesh Cocktail Dress from Snowpaws? Double Check!

When I think of being elegant, genteel and feminine, Snowpaws tops my list. Without overpowering embellishments, Carrie Snowpaw, Owner and Designer of Snowpaws, weaves together uncomplicated grandeur into a style all her own.  Her designs are instantly recognizable without object profiling
(you know you do it…don’t deny) and surrounds those who don them with an aura of romantic sophistication. Soyeux, Snowpaws latest release, is an absolute example. “Silk” in English, Soyeux is as touchable as it gets.

Coming in five hues, I chose Peach (it is not as pink as this photo implies) and paired it with the Branch Hat and Chest Flower from Soyeux in Ruby.  All colors are easily mixed and matched, so if you’re anything like me when it comes to color,  be sure to purchase more than one. Ladies with Lolas (that includes Me), Carrie kept us in mind as Soyeux also has appliers for optional purchase.

 One last thing I want to mention. It’s about the Chest Flower. It has been placed ever so gently in the curve of the dress’s neckline bringing special attention to a Woman’s femininity. Why, Carrie…You minx!  I didn’t know you had it in you. <giggles> Much Love.

CHRONO FIGURE
Okay, so I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again and again…
I’m considered a Geek.  A Nerd.
Simply because I take enjoyment in video games.
Well, one of my favorites to watch my children play is Chrono Cross.
Besides the game play, Chrono Cross has a phenomenal sound track.
See for yourself while you continue to read and watch.

TIME SLIP
 
<sings>
 
Time keeps on slippin’, slippin’, slippin’ into the future….
Time flies don’t it, baby?
 
YES!
Every time I look at myself in the mirror I wonder where has the time gone?
Why, it seems like only yesterday I was playing 
Let’s Make A Deal with my big sister using our closet as The Box.  
Or nestling down in front of the TV, 
laughing as Fred Flintstone gets flattened by a truck.
  Actually, that was yesterday.
But, nonetheless…
Time waits for no one.
Or does it…?
