I still miss her. Every day of my life I miss her. Not a day goes by without remembering her. Thinking about her…
A couple of years have gone by and sometimes I forget. Going home it slips my mind that she is gone and instead of turning right at the park I keep going … to her house. Midway thru it hits me and I turn around.
Some other times, something happens and all I can think about is calling her … to tell her … yet she is nowhere to be found outside of me. Her new place of abode is now my heart.
I still talk to her. In my mind and soul she is still very present … My Mother, my best friend, my all … I lost her to breast cancer a couple of years back, still young.
Right before her mastectomy I painted her nude in water colors. This was the last time I ever saw them whole.
In between I´ve lost my uncle, my best girl friend (she was only 35 years old) and just two months ago, my oldest male friend. All of these people gone within 3 to 9 months from the time of diagnosis.
I keep thinking the cure and it´s prevention must have been found somewhere, somehow, but for now and until that comes out in the open, I only do what I can do, in this as well as every life … I seat, I wait, I work, because someday we will overcome!

We are back in the boat and heading for the much talked about and anticipated FFL in SL. We are looking forward to the things we might find there. A place to give purpose to our shopping and to shop with a purpose. In the meantime and not having yet arrived, we travel in style with Gizza´s latest. I don´t know what else I could say that would not be obvious about this ensemble, except that it’s the sort of dress that I never want to get out of! I want to sail in it, lounge in it and sleep in it! The dress is available in several colors and comes with matching sunglasses, a cardigan and hat! All Items pictured Gizza!
Upon arrival at FFL Amble, our first port of entry, we change clothing into something suitable for warmer weather and we get our passport with our picture on it. This passport will collect stamps as we travel along FFL, for every purchase we make and these can later be redeemed for prizes.
The Sundaara Design dress is perfect for this. The dress seems to be moving with the wind. It´s strapless, cut close to the upper body and opening into a short A silhouette at the bottom. The dress is simple, sunny, airy and comes with a ruffle attachment to wear with or without. You could of course wear it with heels, however I chose to wear it with another FFL exclusive, the Essenz Tampa Flat Sandals. Available in several colors and Slink feet ready!

After wondering around the Trek and Voyage Sims at FFL, sleep took her over and dreaming about a previous incarnation as a priestess of the Seat of Immortality, sYs dresses her up in white. The robe is both, simple and magnificent in its modesty and yet … a lot is on display, only you may not notice. Although the neckline comes all the way up to the neck in the front, it plunges deep on the sides and back. Wear the robe with the Essenz Tampa Flat Sandals, this time in the purest of whites.
