******************************Where we come from****************************


Stories I've been thinking on...some new, some old, some just stories.

I've had my routine turned around these last couple of weeks or so... what with a part time real life job {I really did need something to do besides sitting here on my backside!} and that job does require me working one day (night) graveyard shift. The upside is I get a bit of time to sit and think about what I want to write here... so, stories.

Old stories...well old for me, some of you that read this know about the ongoing written *blog war* that has been going on for the past few months. It's a war that I refuse to take sides in. All the parties have their points and I intend to not only remain neutral... I intend to try to still communicate with everyone. We all have things in our lives that we feel passionate about and while both passion and dissent are acceptable it would seem to me that it's important to be able to disagree without being disagreeable. Life is much too short for me to spend much of my life worrying about what some one has said about me. A quote from one of my favorite authors Richard Bach, "Live never to be ashamed if anything you do or say is published around the world... even if what is published is not true".

Newer stories.... I received an IM from Tymmerie a day or so ago confirming the time and location of the Secondlife Bloggers party at Benares. I wanted to try something a little different for entertainment so I've booked two live acts for the party. First at 2PM SLT will be Porter Paquot... Porter sings real life with the Portland Oregon band, Fez Fatale . A look at that web link will tell you a bit about her and the style of music. Porter has a great line of patter that draws the crowd into the show...the mark of a good club entertainer.

Second act will be Hexie and Madame, The Born Again Pagans out of Amsterdam... I was so hooked on their music from the first time I heard them, I think all that attend will enjoy. I'm going to do a little decorating...not much... it's a Bloggers party, Halloween is still a long ways away!

Lastly... I saw a friend online last evening that doesn't come as often as they used to. Blue Szondi was likely the last Secondlife Mentor left on the old help Islands... We chatted for a bit about how it used to be...and how the nooblets are kinda left hanging so often. The old system wasn't perfect no.... but it sure beats what is available now. You can find Blues story here,

That's all for now =^..^=

And so it goes

My love to you all, brinda




  1. now....which day is this party... I might gate-crash...:))

  2. I already sent you an IM, but a nasty burn on my hand (more specifically: my right index finger) makes playing the guitar impossible. And so, with deep regret, we can't do a show at the Blogger Party.

    Darn. And I was looking so forward to it.
