Captured

RYRByrne

I don’t know what came over me.
Maybe it was his music.
His voice, perhaps.
Kindness, Attention he paid, Patience.
Whatever it was..
I. Was. Captured.

Ever met someone and all circumstances go out the window?
You shake yourself trying to wake up — asking,
“Are you crazy” with the obvious answer being
“Hell yes!”

There is no story without pain and pain
always comes with a story.
It’s times like these that I pull myself up by a tuft of my fur,
take a deep cleansing breath and
move forward one determined step at a time.
Do I smile?
Nope.
That’d be fake and I’m on the real.
How do I dress?
Sexy.
Powerful.
Byrne.

Byrne, owner and designer of Byrne Boutique has created
an outfit that I simply had to blog.
Her and I have been friends for years and although she
did not directly ask me to blog her Rock Your Rack Exclusive
called Ronnie, she probably knew I would.

The coloooor!
Ronnie hits me all upside my Captured head with bountiful
boldness that’s sticky sweet.
Being a Long Dress, Crocheted Bra (Maitreya & Omega Appliers)
and a Bouffant Hairdo (not shown),
Ronnie makes the wrong seem right.
Coming in three color options, she is compatible with most Mesh Bodies.

My RYR Friendship ties don’t end with Byrne…

Lua Vendetta.
I’d seen her throughout my years as a model,
but it wasn’t until a Halloween show where
she was a Prom Queen doing a Bob Ross (beating the devil out)
on a rival’s head that all communication barriers crumbled for me.
I laughed my ass off and still to this day, I can’t shake that image.
Yes, Lua.
This is Zoomy Bluebird.
Thank you for instilling such a wonderful memory
and continuing with LUNA.
Bringing us Body Art Music, a Limited manicure and pedicure set
at Rock Your Rack, LUNA makes your nails sing.
Created for Slink, Dynamics, Vista Bento, Belleza and Maitreya,
Body Art Music gives you the option to change your nails Black
as pictured above or White.

Onix.
Being the newest friend of the three,
I met Onix earlier this year.
She’s a beautiful person on the inside and knows how
to present that beauty outwardly.
Case in point: ALMA Makeup.

Pampa is a unique set of three lipsticks created by ALMA.
Inspired by “Argentinian-Gaucha Culture“, Onix has offered
these lippies to Rock Your Rack as a 100% donation.
Pictured above, they are available for Lelutka, Catwa
and Omega Heads only and is a Limited Edition set.
So once she’s gone, you’re out of luck.

My advice?
Come to Rock Your Rack and be Captured…..

Get Over It

My, my, my.
Tsk, tsk, tsk.
I have never witnessed such a group of dysfunctional people in my life.
I’m talking about American Horror Story, of course. I recently discovered it on Netflix and I must say I’m finding it worthy of my attention. Probably because their lives are so tragic that when I look at my own, it doesn’t seem so bad. Makes it easier for me to get over the small stuff.
Damn! I just spilled the last of the creamer on the floor and I need coffee!
Well, Tate just rapped the love of his life’s mom,
so going without coffee isn’t so bad.
Inspired by the ghosts of yesteryear trapped in the story,
one of them being Elizabeth Short (The Black Dahlia),
I’m presenting to you She Had It Comin’ and Alibi.

Noise

Original Post: Zooming Ahead

Noise

She said to me,
“I laid down for a rest and as I lay there, I could hear children screaming, cars passing and the honking of their horns, the loud rustling of paper being crumpled over and over, and an unrecognizable tune lingering in the background.
Suddenly, it all stopped.
Silence.
There wasn’t a television playing.
The radio was dead silent and the computer’s fan gave only a slight hum.
That’s when I realized that the noise I was hearing….
..was coming from my head.”

Turn off the noise people and listen.

Pumps Rule

(Original Post: Zooming Ahead)Zscape Four_Between Lines Russell EponymAs I sat there at Ce Soir Arts listening to Russell Eponym spout literature to us while keeping us toe-tapping happy with Irish songs, something caught my eye.  I love pumpkins, for not only are they trademarks for my favorite time of year, it’s considered tradition to display and sample them over two seasons.

Pumpkins Rule!

Relinquishing The Past

Pops_Gift

“Never go back.”
This was the advice my Pops gave to me long ago when I was contemplating going back to a previous relationship. He was right.  Why would I try to hang on to something that was proven to be bad in the first place?
Why can’t we just let the past go?
Like the fall leaf that tries to hold on to Autumn in the photo above called, “Pop’s Gift“, I too try to hold on to the past — allowing it to stunt my growth making it difficult to progress forward.

Relinquishing_The_Past

I don’t want to be like this leaf.  I want to let the past go, pressing onward to a brighter season.

Changing Lanes“… let others catch up instead of turning from our own lane.”

Bell wrote this commenting on my post Dearly Beloved.
What she wrote stuck with me.  So much so that I felt I must express her words in photography.  The end result:
Changing Lanes

Cocooned

(Original Post: Zooming Ahead)

Cocooned

Twilighting.
It’s what I’ve always called it — that state between awake and falling asleep.  But, there’s an actual scientific name for it.
Hypnagogia or in my case last night, Hypnopompic (between sleeping and awake).
This image, Cocooned, is what I saw.
Wrapped in the branches of a tree, I rest like a sleeping baby unaware and uncaring of any negative energy that may be surrounding me.
Safe.
Secured.
Cocooned.
