It´s OK!

Vero Modero Beach IV

One of our family´s main businesses was commercial radio. As a child I was taught and trained by my father to recognize a tune with top 40 potential and / or great quality music – according to my own taste, of course 😉 and that of the target audience – during the first five  seconds of a tune. For me it was a game but now and although the criteria has changed over the last 15 years I still relish the thought of discovering great artists! Which makes this post overdue by a few days.

With newfound time on my hands at night I  luckily accepted the TP of a friend. It took me forever to rez and even more just to be able to listen (I use a MAC running on Maverick on my computer´s second  partition in order to just be able to log into SL!) but once I did, I realized I had landed at a live concert and I was surrounded by Avatars who were mesmerized by the tunes playing. In all truth the experience was unique!

On the stage in front of me, was Tukso Okey giving us a live performance. His choice of music was not only interesting, different and almost philosophical, but he had obviously been influenced by the classics; he played like a real guitar virtuoso.

The surrounding crowd, huge by virtual standards, was made up of his followers and friends. They seemed to be having a marvelous time and the kind of unique, exclusive experience of those in the ´known´ and of which I will admit, I ´m not a part of in SL.

Unfortunately I had to decide between trying to record his performance or crashing. I decided to stay and dance and just flow with his deep soulful music and trippy sounds. into La, Lan-da Land! Tukso, came across as an amazing musician, a kind soul, a nice chap and one who is quite well organized through his partner Pedula Bing who represents him.

I left the venue relaxed, refreshed and happy, with a calm, warm feeling deep inside. In RL or SL I´d choose his music any time! The video below was recorded by the Artist prior to my introduction to his music. Perhaps you should give him a try. I humbly believe that he should be recognized. Thank you Tukso for your music!

This  strapless cotton top with a closed eyelet embroidery comes as part of a set with shorts.  Because I wear a mesh body and the shorts are more suitable for the system avi I decided to pair it with shorts that I already owned.  The top, however worked fine on the body and I loved the hanging  eyelet triangle on the front.

Standing Up (Debout)

Gizza Sunny Beach

Recognizing how sad and unhappy ´ I thought´ I was, the wise man bought me a flower and in turn it got me to smile.

Since then, I´ve tried to pass on the same kindness almost every day  in different ways. Sometimes I fail but I keep trying.

Light or shadow, whichever it is, we´ll  pass it on and it´ll have a tendency to replicate and reproduce. The choice is always entirely ours.

Even a  single, small, kind gesture can have magical effects and change our lives forever.  It once did mine. I´m keeping that in mind and heart forever 🇫🇷

How will we change the world today?

Keeping Cool

Gizza Bib

Keeping our heads above water can prove difficult and hard at times.

At others, it just becomes the reminder of lessons that have gone unlearnt, must be repeated, mastered then surpassed.

The good part of it, as a doctor once told me – when I caught a particularly strange three month virus –  is that it´s not a permanent thing. Winks!
