Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…

New Me

First post in a long time. I’ve been so preoccupied with my RL and everything going on there that I haven’t honestly had much motivation to even log into SL much less take photos. I tried forcing myself to work through my funk but it never really helps out. But now, with the thawing of winter, and my new pen tablet, my motivation and creativity are in full swing again. It’s been a long time coming but I feel like me again.

This is the first picture I’ve done since Christmas time, the first one with my new Bento head, and the first one I edited with my tablet. I simply added a few strands to the hair and pretty much kept the rest as is, not wanting to do too much too soon and end up ruining things. Kaiden032617

Guardian

Guardian

I was chosen from a young age and set on the patch of a warrior. Some become healers, others priests, but, I, I am a guardian. One of only twenty chosen from among our vast people.

Guardians are always watching, waiting, always vigilant. Tasked with protecting our most sacred place – the temple our ancestors built to the gods.

And so I will remain, until I am relieved of my duties due to age or death. This is my calling. This is my life.
