Calming Landscape

13 Foxy Friends

The beauty of the forest and the soft music it created made her want to sit and linger. She drifted down to rest. She leaned her head back and closed her eyes breathing deep and listening to the musical sounds surrounding her. She heard a strange little chittering close behind her and turned to see a pair of fox cubs playing while the mother watched her carefully. She smiled and stayed still to watch them until they went inside their den.

13 Peekaboo with a Cub

After some more exploring she saw a cute little bear cub peeking at her from behind a tree stump. She giggled and knelt a little distance off and summoned some flower petals to play with and amuse the cub. When some big rustlings came from the nearby trees and the bear cub wandered off towards them she continued her explorations.

13 Reflecting With Ducks

As the sun was setting she came across a beautiful pond with some ducks swimming around. The reflections on the water were so pretty with the sunset lighting she had to go closer to gaze down at them. One of the ducks ruffled its feathers at her and swam off a little disgrunted. She giggled and spent some time hovering there just basking in the peace as the sunlight faded and the sounds of crickets and frogs replaced the bird songs.


13 Fun Reflections

After another week of being sick with the flu or some bad bug, I really wanted to get out and see some beautiful nature. I can not wait for spring and warmer weather and all things green and colorful to sprout up. I saw this sim on Strawberry Singh’s blog and had to go and explore it. It is so gorgeous and calming. The sim lighting and sounds go perfect with the landscaping and I had a ton of fun playing with the animals and water reflections.

Music’s Influence

Hi, my name’s Wyona and I’m a music addict. ♥ No lie, I listen to music as much as I can. As I’m working on things, to help my mood, for dance troupe, even when I sleep. I will wake up in the middle of the night to no music and wake up just enough to start Pandora back up and go back to sleep. I also love all kinds from new age and classical to industrial and techno. I’m not a huge fan of metal, country, blues and them but even in those genres I have songs I like.

I also love anime as you might guess from my cutesy or kawaii style. So for this post I wanted to share my love of both as well as pose a question. What would you do if one of the things you were passionate about became banned and against the law? Me, with music and reading, I would likely bootleg and hoard and have to have music and books despite it. I tend to be introverted and bad with emotions, so they have a habit of sometimes overwhelming me. Music is my lifeline in those times. It helps ground me and lift my mood as well as help me feel more energetic. When I clean house or do other things I hate music is always there to help it go quicker and make it more bearable ( I can’t say enjoyable lol).

An anime that is a bit older but addresses this question perfect (and I’ve seen it multiple times now) is AKB0048. It’s based in a universe where humans have expanded into the universe but some planted have banned music and arts. Now, we can’t say for sure the worlds they show would be how it would look for sure but I think they did a decent job based on past history and how humans have responded to authority banning or limiting our music and arts. The towns this group of idols go to visit are gray and gloomy with smog and food lines where everyone looks miserable. Despite the danger to the girls, they travel to planets to see their fans even if that planet is under an entertainment ban, and many times these concerts help inspire change.

For me, this very much reflects how I think my life would be without music or art. Without them what would I have to do to recharge my mood and energy? To pick me up when I am feeling sad? Or even to calm me when I am angry? I turn to both music and art (mainly through photography and dance choreography on SL) to help me during those times. My only other real outlet is books. But if they ban entertainment of music and art, when would that expand to the fantasy and sci-fi books I love so much? Or even to other fiction books?

Another reason I love the anime, and other dance and music oriented shows and movies, is it shows the growth and struggles the members of the group have to go through as well. Three of the newer trainees in the group come from a banned entertainment planet themselves.

When I was shopping marketplace I came across this dress and it reminded me of some of the outfits I’ve seen idols wearing in anime and I thought it would would work great for this post. Sorry there is only one picture, I had a couple more but I really didn’t like how they turned out. I want to experiment with lighting more and see if I can get better, sometimes the shadows just make the photo unappealing to me when I go to edit. Also, I have chosen to share a couple videos of AKB0048. I was unable to find many with english subs of good quality. The longer one I did find though, I love the songs, the lyrics are very touching to me. Also there are so many other great anime or musicals or even shows based around dance and music that I love, I just chose this one because of how perfect it fit with the main thing I wanted to talk about. ♥ Next time, a book meme!!

My Story + Bonus

One sunny day a young couple was walking through the forest when they heard a beautiful melody. They followed the sound to a cave and inside found a unicorn resting on a soft mossy floor. The woman had recently discovered she could not have children and been devastated. She knelt before the unicorn and with tears in her eyes begged for a child of their own.02-my-story
The unicorn lowered its head to touch its horn to the moss in front of it. The young couple gasped as a beautiful purple flower grew from the moss. It grew until it was at eye level with the kneeling woman and it’s giant blossom opened to reveal a small toddler with light purple hair, pointed ears and a wispy set of tiny wings. Her eyes slowly opened to show one blue and one purple eye. The woman wept and after a glance at the unicorn who nodded its head she reached in and pulled the little girl from the flower.
The girl wrapped her little arms tight around the woman’s neck and snuggled in to fall back asleep. The couple thanked the unicorn quietly over and over before taking the little girl home.

A year later the girl and her parents have learned many things together. She doesn’t age like normal children, always remaining around 4 years of age. However she can chose to become a teen using her fae magic for short periods of time. Her magic is unreliable and sometimes backfires.
One day as she was being passed between all of her extended family and parents her magic turned everyone who held her hair purple like hers. Recently she used her magic to turn teen and something happened with her magic and she is unable to turn back to her toddler form for the time being.

Ok, so bonus story and pic because it was just too funny. I was over visiting my aunts and uncle and nana showing them my new look. They loved it and were joking about daddy needing to beat boys off with a stick. Then a few minutes later, out of the blue, nana passes me a 12 gauge pump shotgun. O.O I was a little alarmed at this not being a big weapons person.
Later while me and momma were shopping with the Christmas money nana gave me we went to Epic’s store for the 50% off sale and we came across this kawaii chainsaw. Sent nana a gyazo snapshot and of course the response was “Yes! You need that!” So I got it and here’s a pic to show you how cute it is! It even has sparkles coming off it and the blade edge moves. And that’s a sneak peak at how crazy my family is. ♥
I ♥ my family, it’s been a wonderful dream since you found me and took me in!
