For Toby

No matter how old we are or where we are in ours lives, each of us has had a Toby. Their name may be different and they may be a different species of pet, but we all have our Toby. The little creatures we adopt into our lives and set roost in our hearts. Their cute little faces covered in fur or feather light up when we enter a room or return from a day at work. Their love for us never ends and their moments of comfort help ease a rough situation. In the end we would do anything for little Toby’s to see that they are well taken care of, after all they are our adopted children who love us with every ounce of their being unconditionally.

Stars Lead the Way

Little Red, was out for one of her many trips to her grans house when she realized she had forgot the basket of goodies her mom had prepared. Instead of turning around and heading back home, she decided to see if there was a bakery around. She had recalled seeing an ad in the paper once about the Baker to the Stars and wondered how she would find them without having their address. As she wandered deeper into the woods, she suddenly remembered a little jingle and stopped in her tracks. All she needed to do was let the stars lead the way and she would find the new baker and his goodies…

The Powder Room

Standing back, she looked around the one room she had finished decorating; the room she would spend a good deal of her morning preparing for the day. Hearing the small quiet mews, she looked over and smiled at the kitten giving its approval. The powder room was well decorated and cozy for those days after a long days work, or for those mornings where a few extra minutes of pampering were well needed.

The Entrance Way

The entrance way of the home is the first thing our guests see. My grandma use to say that you can tell a lot about the people who live in a home by their entrance way; something I never really gave much thought to as a children. Now that I think back to my grandma and the things she would say, I can now see how the entrance way opens the world to those who live within the home. Some entrance ways are clean with everything in their place and others are a mess with items strewn here and there. My favourite entrance ways are those with clear signs of animals and children. You know this home is filled with love and they are not afraid to show it.

The Country Wedding

Nestled outside the ancient building the bride stood watch as the decorators busied themselves with decorating and setup the location. Taking a long slow breath she began to smile as her vision came to life. Most would be bothered by the occasional verbalization from the sleeping dog or from by the gathering chicks as the grass was rustled causing the little seeds to fall to the ground. She enjoyed the country side; she found it soothing and relaxing and the animals that roamed the land made her smile. Eventually she felt someone take her hand and she gave it a squeeze and flashed her fiance a smile, tomorrow they would be married and a new journey would begin.

Strange Things Happen

I have learned that strange things happen when you least expect them. I had never once expected to form a close bond with people I have never met outside of Second Life. These people have become a part of me in RL so much so that when they hurt I hurt for them and long to take away their pain, when they are happy I share in their joy. At the same time I never expected that Second Life would enable me to virtually see those who have been in my life forever but cannot visit with in RL because of where they now live. Strange and wonderful things happen I have learned when you least expect it.
