Cruel Summer Hunt



I got a new hunt for you that you gonna love!
It is The Cruel Summer Hunt that runs from June 1 - June 14.
80's inspired goodies from 49 stores to collect. 
Look for the neon Rubik's cubes all over the city


Each cube is 50L or less with new and exclusive items for you to find.
At least 5 prizes from each store.

These are some of my favorite stores;


 


There are no clues so you must look everywhere because some prizes are so well hidden
in or under the least expected places.


Good Luck Everyone!

Black Lives Matter - George Floyd


First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out
—because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out
— because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out
—because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak for me.


8:46 Long, Please take the time to pause and reflect during the duration of this video.




Hello my beautiful people!
This is a sim highlighting the Black Lives Matter Movement. You can visit and show your support
and get to meet other supporters like I did.

There might be donation boxes somewhere in the sim where you can donate to the cause
however, I did not see any donation boxes during my visit.

Here I am adding some places where you can donate to:



As I mentioned before, during my visit to Exorcismus Choir Land I had the pleasure of meeting
other supporters like Nancy who stood with me in a peaceful demonstration. 
ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem) shares a Youtube video to the crowd of supporters

ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem) shouts: 
ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem) shouts: 
A conversation with President Obama: Reimagining Policing in the Wake 
of Continued Police Violence live right now
ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem): 
Just remember the names, learn the stories, and do what you can to make it stop
People need to know that black people's blood also flows red.
That's what people need to know right now.
Need to know that black people are tired and angry, and hurting, and sad, 
and being murdered for no reason and their red blood, red just like mine and yours, 
keep being spilled for no reason, whatsoever.

疾風 忍 (shinobuhayate) soon joined the group:

疾風 忍 (shinobuhayate):
I'm Japanese but sad to know this sad news
ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem): 
It is Shino. Thank you for being supportive of change. 
It's gonna take a whole lot of people from a whole lot of places to make this change.
We can do it. We outnumber the racists.
We have to tear down the system and rebuild it to be fair to everyone.
And teach our children that everyone is equal. This sh*t comes from eons of people teaching their
children to blindly hate another person for the stupidest fucking thing you can imagine.
I love all people and want them all to be treated like people.
Black people get treated worse than dogs. It's not fair and needs to stop.
Point blank period.

Well said ᴋɪᴛᴛɪᴇ ғʀɪᴇᴅ ʀɪᴄᴇ ᴜᴡᴜ (kittie.hexem)!


I, on the other hand, passed out Black Lives Matter yellow flags to the crowd.
You can get a copy for free here
As for my shirt and cap, you can get your free copies at the sim together with a few other free gifts (View Here).

Make sure you explore this sim during your visit, you will find it very interesting.
Hope to see you all there!

Peace & Love!

So the Story Goes



Hola beautiful world! <3

So there's this window in my bedroom (RL) from where I can look at the park that is just across
the street from our home. Now, this is my favorite window because I get to see outside so many beautiful things every day. 
I love to watch how the branches of the trees move with the wind and
how the leaves fall so gently to the ground in the fall. I love to watch the clouds on sunny days
and believe it or not, those rainy-gray days are my favorite ones to see. 

Across in the park, I get to enjoy watching children playing on the swings and slides or just running around so happy. 
I also love watching people walk their dogs, some so small that I can barely see them while others as big as a calf. 
It is so funny to watch the big dog owners struggling to get a good grip of the dog's leach that sometimes the dog will get loose 
and I get to witness the dog owner chasing after the dog, just hilarious.

There are always people jogging or just walking which I also like to do in the afternoons.
Sometimes there are birthdays parties held there since we have picnic tables and barbeque grills.
Sometimes I get to see young couples having romantic picnics under a tree. 

Ther are also tennis courts in this park that I can see from my special window were daily
and at all hours of the day, people come to use. Sometimes I'll see groups of young people playing soccer 
or some other outdoor sports while others ride bikes or practice yoga.

Often events are held there like fairs, outdoor movies, small concerts, school field trips, etc.,
even religious ceremonies. I live in the middle of town so this park could be considered my
miniature central park like the one in New Youk City, just very very and I mean very small.

These are just some of the things I get to see from my window in the park, now the beautiful
things I get to see from my window are not only things that happen across the street. 

I get visited every day by birds, many kinds of birds that stop at the big tree by my window.
Cardinals, doves, woodpeckers, etc., etc. There are hummingbirds that also stop by every day to say hello. 
Now these beautiful miniature birds don't just fly around but they will come to my window and
as I tap on the glass they stay right where I am tapping for a while, not afraid but they seem to like
watching my hand.

There are also squirrels that come to the tree by my window and like looking in, 
always curious to see what's happening inside. Something funny about my squirrels though, 
I often get to see them being chased by the birds but I wonder if they are playing because, after a while, 
they both will stop exhausted and then relax together.

There are also lizards on my tree but sometimes I'll see one on my window, outside the glass,
tap, tap, I tap a lot my window I tell you. I have spotted maybe three types of lizard, 
some seem very fragile and will change color to a beautiful green, while others look kind of scary, very big and scaly.
The other kind is the striped one which seems to enjoy bathing in the sun.

There are many other beautiful things I get to see outside my window and today it was no exception,
early in the afternoon, it started raining again, a semi-heard rain, it was beautiful! 
I love everything about the rain, how it looks and sounds, how it feels, and even how it makes the ground smell so nice.
Anyways, after a while, I decided to look outside my window while it rained and got to see such sweet moment. 
It was two young ladies, both with a child. One had a baby in her arms, the other was holding the hand of a toddler, 
maybe 18 to 24 months old, all four were barefooted, and they were playing in the rain. 
The toddler was so adorably cute, chubby, and with no shirt on, he was so chubby that he looked like a little circle, a wet one ;) 
and he kept kicking in the paddle of water. All four seemed so happy that I even felt like joining them.

My beautiful quartet stayed playing in the rain for a good while without even realizing how much joy
that had brought to my eyes. These are the things I feel so thankful for.

You got to agree with me that this was a beautiful thing to witness.
I had been very saddened by George Floyds' death and all the destruction and the violent riots that have been happening
 that watching the young mothers and their babies enjoying the rain, was just what I needed.

Thanks for reading,

Coming now to Second Life,
Earlier today I visited Snakes Resort (Moderate) which I liked very much.
It has many great spots to enjoy but they are scattered around the sim 
so you really need to look for them.

Snakes Resort has also house and shop rentals available. 
And other than the beautiful spots I took pictures to show you, you will also find 
a clubhouse, zombie shooting, bowling, shooting range and a track,
these are just some of the other great attractions in the sim.

I hope you enjoyed the story about my special window.
Now you know why I love it so much and why I never want to have to give it up.

Like the Color Blue



For days now I have been obsessed over Red Dead Redemption 2 RP believe it or not!
But to be honest with you what attracts me most to the game is the beautiful landscapes.
Funny though, I don't like RP in Second Life but when it comes to RDR 2, now, that's another thing. ;)

But moving on to other things,
I been enjoying so much being able to explore new places in Second Life now that my Mac 
is working good. Today I visited Oasis Resort Naturist (Adult), a beautiful tropical island 
with a dress code of either naked or swimsuit, and of course, I chose to go naked!
HA! just kidding :P

Anyways, only adult humans are allowed and there is a 250L fee to join their group.
There are many things to enjoy during your visit, especially if you become a group member (like the use of objects), 
but don't worry, for those of you that can't afford a membership, there are plenty of other things for you to do as well.

Now a have a new place to show my Steppenwolf tonight! ;)
Please don't forget to show some Linden love during your visit. All donations big or small will be
greatly appreciated.

See you all there!

All The Shine of a Thousand Spotlights



So let's begin by adding some pink and orange and yellows and lilacs
and...
well, you get the idea ;)
Now that my old Mac seems to be working in crisp condition, almost like new,
let us see for how long the thrill of being able to visit beautiful sims and events without crashing 
or having to wait at least 20 minutes for things to completely rez will last us.
As I said before, I do love my dark background photos but why not add color sometimes 
and give my photos some light and life to them. Right?

So we agree!
Peace & Love beautiful world!
SMILE ;)
