Weekly, as we travel around to the various art installations on our sim “Exploring with Evee”, as an opener for Evee, Jewell or DJ Matrix will stream original music from various musicians around the grid. We will have a NC giver with the booking info of the musicians when we play that set. We’ll talk about the musicians a little bit during voice overs, and try to bring Live SL performers to people who may not otherwise normally go to live music events. So far, we have agreements from 12 musicians allowing us to do this, with more being included in this endeavor. Come early, Jewell will be streaming “Here’s What You’re Missing” tunes from 1-2PM SLT beginning Feb 23rd.

Mysti-June 28

Had to get a tiny bell collar to be able to keep up with Mysti. She can climb to the top of our cabinets and dressers and everywhere.  She crawls into drawers and under any space she can find.  The bell helps us figure out where she is in case we need to rescue.

Glamping at Roan Mountain

We did it! We went and returned and it was wonderful.  All great except the fact that I was so sick I barely remember the trip. Not that I don’t remember, but it was like a dream. I was determined NOT to let this virus destroy the opportunity to spend time with Chuck. I purchased cold medicines.  One for cough, one for congestion, one for fever, one for sinus, one for aches, one for headache, and so forth.  You get the idea? I took them all and I willed my body to move.  We did have a  great time and it was beautiful.  I had no idea the cabins would be as equipped.  All cooking items, toaster, coffee maker and they brought wood each day for the wood burning stove.  And now I am still trying to recover from the ‘bug’ and hope I can feel good enough to celebrate bringing in a New Year.

Wisdom

“As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

― H.L. Mencken, On Politics: A Carnival of Buncombe

Remember this, we each battle the evil of this world

Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And if you gaze long enough into an abyss, the abyss will gaze back into you.

Friedrich Nietzsche

Family Camping

Back to the camping spot last weekend.  My Soul went one night ahead and prepared the most amazing camping spot.  He alone built a table out of string and wood.  Cut enough firewood for 24 consistent hours of burning and created a cooking area on the fire circle, built a blind and dug a hole for our bathroom needs and had everything ready for us to come the next morning. This time it was my Soul, my son M. and his friend D. Oh, and we took the two dogs. Clearly, M and D was not ready for camping. The work to keep wood and prepare for rain or whatever can happen on a camping trip was NOT in their plan.  We had to continually remind them to gather, saw, clean, pick up things to keep us safe.  This ‘secret’ place is well known for bears and everything must be kept in the car and sealed.  Then, the rain came.  My Soul sat by the fire in the rain for hours keeping it going for us.  He is quite amazing.  I am amazed, astonish, astounded and happy that my Higher Power allowed our paths to cross.  He is wise beyond his years, interesting, smart, witty, and he is all mine. He is a wonderful man. He has been in our lives, mine and the kids a short few years but the difference he has made to this family is astounding.  We have two teens and it has not be easy.  They are adopted and have many layers of baggage. I see many more camping experiences in this family’s future. It is good to be away from TV, digital games and the blasted cell phone.

Date Day

Had the best day. Went out with just my guy.  Just my love and me without the kids. Doing nothing together is doing something special. Did a little shopping and then ate at Mellow Mushroom but the best time was driving to the National Forest to look for out of the way…way out camping spots. No cell service, just the sound of the small creek and insects buzzing.  We saw the biggest turkeys I have ever seen.  I was so excited. We laughed a lot and smiled a lot.  It was a wonderful day.
