Day 147 - Inspired

I've been pretty blessed to get to know so many wonderful artists [that's what I think of most of my creator friends are] in Second Life. What always amazes me is where they find their inspiration from. One finds it from nature, another from films, another from music, so on and so forth.

Most of my inspiration for SL photos comes from others, either because of a mood they have put me in, or in items they have created. When my friend Gauge gave me this mirror, an image popped into my head. I knew the outfit and the hair and skybox I wanted to use. And as I was beginning to prepare for the photo, I had my music on shuffle and "I Am Ready For Love" by India.Arie came on. [Yes, I totally had to get the song after hearing it on American Idol. Don't hate.] After that...the photo came easily.


If you give me half a chance
I'll prove this to you
I will be patient, kind, faithful and true
To a man who loves music
A man who loves art
Respects the spirit world
And thinks with his heart

I am ready for love
If you'll take me in your hands
I will learn what you teach
And do the best that I can

I am ready for love
Here with an offering of
My voice
My eyes
My soul
My mind

Tell me what is enough
To prove I am ready for love

And no no, I'm not emo or heartbroken or in love or anything of the sort. :) Well, I am a little sad. I had to clean off a parcel today and....well, you know. But mostly this photo is just one that kind of formed in my head.

Is the photo too big? lol See, I've been having issues with this lately. My blog isn't on any feeds, so I don't feel like I need to conform to prescribed widths like I do over in the style blog. But I don't want it to be all crazy either.

I really hate that I don't start fully waking up until this time. [It's just about 7 in my neck of the woods]. I seriously think I'm living in my own time zone. But, hey, that's ok. That is OH-KAY.

Hm. I think I'll go find someone to bother now.
