Evil Queen

Queen: Slave in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space, through wind and darkness I summon thee. Speak! Let me see thy face.

Magic Mirror: What wouldst thou know, my Queen?

Queen: Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all?

Magic Mirror: Famed is thy beauty, Majesty. But hold, a lovely maid I see. Rags cannot hide her gentle grace. Alas, she is more fair than thee.

Queen: Alas for her! Reveal her name.

Magic Mirror: Lips red as the rose. Hair black as ebony. Skin white as snow.

Queen: Snow White!

Evil Queen2

Now, a formula to transform my beauty into ugliness. Change my queenly raiment to a peddler’s cloak.

Evil Queen3

Mummy dust, to make me old. To shroud my clothes, the black of night. To age my voice, an old hag’s cackle.

Evil Queen4

To whiten my hair, a scream of fright. A blast of wind to fan my hate. A thunderbolt to mix it well. Now, begin thy magic spell.

This was to be my 4th post for the Enchantment Event, and then one month ago today the world I had so lovingly created here in Second Life and shared with my partner of 2 years, 4 months and 24 days in Second Life came crashing down all around me.

I think I may have blogged about that to some extent on my renovation of Lost Horizon lol.  Blowing up the region and starting over was not the end of the world, in hindsight it was the best thing I could have done for myself.  It gave me time to be alone, to think about what I wanted my SL to be, and to bring my beloved Lost Horizon’s original vision to fruition.

I want to thank each and every one of you that has taken time out in your busy schedules to come visit my beloved Lost Horizon.  I have enjoyed your posts and photographs, and yes they have brought me to tears that you too would find my Lost Horizon as peaceful as I do.  Thank you 🙂 The Open House continues thru Dec. 30th and I have included the region on the Holiday Homes Tour as well.

While I am doing better, I am not sure the wounds that were inflected will ever heal completely.  It’s a sad, sad thing when you put your heart and soul into a relationship only to find out that the other’s heart and soul was probably never that into the relationship from the start.  That realization alone was enough to give me the strength to just walk away and stop fighting for something that was only a fairy tale/pipe dream in my mind’s eye. I am sure if given the same circumstances though, I would do it all over again, and I am at peace with that conclusion. Memories have been packed away (some even deleted), and now it is time to embrace whatever may come my way.  It’s time to either chit or get off the pot Cougar!

So…here is to new beginnings!

Alone though I may be, I am making plans once again, which is a very good thing. Stay tuned as I will continue to blog home and garden, and my love for fashion Classic Cougar Style. 2014 at the moment promises to be a very busy year.  I have several ideas and goals to share along the way that I am really super excited about.

Now…Let’s tie up a  loose end shall we?

Enchantment Event ends on the 30th.  The event is based around fairy tales and Snow White is the first to be showcased.  If there was something you wanted to purchase and forgot about (and with all the events running this is very easy to do), this is your gentle reminder 🙂  I know there are a few things I still have to pick up. So I am going SHOPPING!!! YAY!!!

Be kind to one another my friends. Your actions speak volumes about your true character. It has been said before and I say it here…Though we may be pixellated avatars there is a real honest to goodness, living, breathing person, with real feelings within.  TWMA 🙂
