“He Believes In Me”

While he lays sleeping…
I stay out late at night and play my songs
And sometimes all the nights can be so long
And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
While he lays dreaming…
I try to get undressed without the light
And quietly he says how was your night
And I come to him and say
It was all right, and I hold him tightAnd he believes in me
I’ll never know just what he sees in me
I told him someday if he was my guy
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But he has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way…

guitarWhile he lays waiting,
I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
And I see my old guitar in the night
Just waiting for me like a secret friend
And there’s no end while he lays crying
I fumble with a melody or two
And I’m torn between the things that I should do
And he says to wake him up when I am through
God his love is true

And he believes in me
I’ll never know just what he sees in me
I told him someday if he was my guy
I could change the world
With my little songs, I was wrong
But he has faith in me
And so I go on trying faithfully
And who knows maybe on some special night
If my song is right
I can find a way
While he waits
While he waits
For me

FASHION: Strip’d Fashion -Burkley Jacket-

The Burkley jacket is a brand new release for men from Strip’d Fashion. It is MESH and totally amazing because it comes with a HUD that lets you change the color of the jacket, shirt and tie into many different combinations to create the perfect look you want to achieve. It can be used for formal as well as casual, depending on the combination you want to create. Best of all, it is very affordable.

GET IT HERE: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/stripd-Burkley-Jacket/4304391h3>

RUNNING INTO YOU: The world is full of millions of people from different countries with their own cultures and languages. It is just amazing to me how people meet especially in a Virtual World called Second Life. I met my partner in SL and RL here and he lives across the Atlantic Ocean from me. I probably would never have met him if it weren’t for Second Life. What is even more amazing is that we fell in love and will be living together this summer in real life.

Edi, running into you back in 2009 when we met for the very first time was a very special day I’ll never forget. I heard your voice on the stream and I messaged you (which I never do btw) and asked you..”Is that your voice on the stream? Sounds very sexy.” Ever since then, you were stalking me until I finally married you. ;p

The chance of meeting someone and falling in love is very rare, whether in SL or RL. It is really a miracle that LOVE HAPPENS even in a virtual game. When you find love, treasure it and fight for it cuz once you lose it, you might never get it back. Never let anyone devalue what you have. Love is never a game even in a Virtual World. We are human beings behind the avatars and we all have feelings. I wish you all love and happiness. May you find your special someone. <3

Our son Sachy asked us to model this latest release “Burkley” for a Vendor Ad for Strip’d Fashions. The idea behind it is Edi and I are two store front MANnequins on display in a posh high end store. I think it turned out very well. Thanks Sachy.

I’m going to make a change for once in my life.
It’s gonna feel real good… Gonna make a difference, gonna make it right.
As I turned up the collar on my favorite winter coat, this wind is blowin’ my mind.
I see the kids in the street with not enough to eat. Who am I to be blind, pretending not to see their need?

A summer’s disregard, a broken bottle top and one man’s soul.
They follow each other on the wind ya know? ‘Cause they got nowhere to go, that’s why I want you to know. I’m starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message could have been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change.

~~~~~

There was a time in my SLife when all I did was live and breathe SL fashion and modeling. It was always about which awards and contests to win next, what agencies to get in, and which designers to work for, etc… Though I am extremely shy and reserved, I think I did pretty well and I have achieved all that I wanted to do. During my modeling journey, I had lost plenty of friends, made a few enemies and been through plenty of Ups & Downs but through it all, I was true to myself, I stood up for what I believed in and I did it my way without stepping on others back.

One day I woke up…

I realized that I had put so much importance and revolved my life on something that most likely won’t matter 10 years from now. Don’t get me wrong. I absolutely love fashion and I love being able to express my fashion and artistic style in Second Life, but I think the obsession and constant need for attention and obtaining these “awards/agencies” are just too much and not healthy. It makes me sad how people act in SL. Some “important” people act like “GODS” and think they can look down and control others just because they gained some success in a Virtual World.  Some resort to ass kissing, back stabbing, lying, cheating, cyber bullying and other childish behavior to get some attention and notoriety. I ask you…Is it worth it? Does it make you feel great and superior to treat other people badly? You might ask….Who the hell am I to judge? I will be the first to tell you that I am NOBODY. I am just another human being behind an avatar who has feelings and gets lonely sometimes, just like you and everyone else. And I am not judging, I’m just voicing my opinion through my experiences. I deeply believe in Karma and I will treat people as how they treat others no matter how “delusional” they might be about their SL importance.

Now enough of the negativity…. lol. I’m not completely emo, I promise. The best part of the SL Fashion World for me is the many wonderful friends I’ve met. There are truly many beautiful and kind people out there and I have the honor to call them my friends and mentors. They have given me a lot of opportunities to grow, supported me through everything and loved me for who I am. You all know who you are and I sincerely Thank you for being beautiful inside and out. My awesome hubby, Editorial Clarity and I have slowly moved away from SL Fashion these past few months though we both know fashion is part of us. We will continue to produce The Fashion Teller books as a means to express our fashion and artistic sides, and I will probably model from time to time I’m sure. I’ve tried to retire completely so many times but a little tiny voice is always calling me back especially when I am inspired. LOL. So….I guess I am semi-retied. ;p

Best Wishes to Everyone in Both Lives.

FASHION: VERO MODERO

Boquet Babii, lovely and extraordinary designer of the popular brand Vero Modero, made this carefree yet stylish casual wear that shows off the fantastic contour of the body. The shirts are luxurious in texture and rich in color yet still comfortably casual. It fits on any occasion, whether hanging out with friends or dancing the night away at a popular hot spot. The shirts come in different colors and you can take a pick of whether long sleeved or short sleeved. The jeans are very form fitting whether you choose normal or boot cut. I just love the realistic textures which looks like my favorite worn jeans that I love to wear over and over again.

Love is in the air
Everywhere I look around
Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound

And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in your eyes

Love is in the air
In the whisper of the trees
Love is in the air
In the thunder of the sea

And I don’t know if I’m just dreaming
Don’t know if I feel sane
But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when you call out my name

(Chorus)
Love is in the air
Love is in the air
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh

Love is in the air
In the rising of the sun
Love is in the air
When the day is nearly done

And I don’t know if you’re an illusion
Don’t know if I see it true
But you’re something that I must believe in
And you’re there when I reach out for you

Love is in the air
Every sight and every sound
And I don’t know if I’m being foolish
Don’t know if I’m being wise

But it’s something that I must believe in
And it’s there when I look in your eyes.

I’m a graduate and professional model from excellent fashion academies and i’ve been modeling since May of 2010. I’m an exclusive model for elite designers, i have good live modeling experience in stores, good runway experience, various print jobs and i’m a cover model for magazines. I strive to excell at being an excellent model, to learn something new every day and to help others in the same way. I’m always friendly, happy, and always trying to do all my best.

MVW contest: Almost one year ago i was into a male fashion store and i was just starting out as an trainee model when i learned about MrVW contest from a friend. I was impressed from that moment of great opportunity. It become really my first goal from that day and i always proclaimed this at my closer friends. So, i started to work hard every day, building a private runway too behind my house (LOL), training me in walks and poses and sharing experiences and emotions with people who have always believed in my ability to model. I’m glad cause i did everything with professionalism without forgetting the fun. I suppose all this helped me to achieve the title of finalist of this exciting contest. Whatever will be the result, i’m sure this contest is going to be my best ever cause i have various friends here and i met someone new too. It’s a great experience that let improve myself so i’m putting 100% of myself for the final event, always being professional and filling what i do with my personality and my sense of style. My primary purpose is to show myself not only like a excellent model.. but here i am, so.. why don’t try to win? ;)

I had the pleasure of modeling this outfit for PASSION Agency and I can’t stop wearing it. lol. I’m a big fan of Honey Bender’s designs for Faster Pussycat. I love how she infused the street punk glam and outrageous edginess into her designs like this outfit for example. The combination of a well made edgy kilt paired with long pants is inventive and unique. I love the texture and the well made prims. The camouflage top adds an unexpected yet beautiful contrast to the bold red/black colors of the pants/kilt. The makeup is from Garded Secret called Evil Eyes. The hair is from TSM which I sometimes used to have that crazy outrageous punk touch. <3 <3 <3

Recently been in a fashion show by BeStyle DIstrict Agency and it was such fun to style and wear the latest Agys Secret Street Wear. I love designs that are edgy yet casual enough to wear anywhere, whether shopping, relaxing at home or hanging out with friends. I love this old worn blue jeans from Agys Secret. The ripped faded worn-out texture gives a perfect appearance of an old treasured jeans that you just love so much that you wore it to death. The tough black leather jacket, also by Agys Secret, is very masculine and sexy. It will show your well defined chest and abs to perfection. =) This tattoo from White~Widow goes perfectly with the tough look. What’a a tough guy look without my favorite gloves from Cheerno: Poker Gloves? Since I am a make-up/Face tattoo layer freak, I had to have this stylish asian inspired makeup by Garded Secret to stand out. Speaking of being unique, TSM hairstyles give you that funky edge.

Made a wrong turn, once or twice.
Dug my way out, blood and fire.
Bad decisions, that’s alright.
Welcome to my silly life!

Mistreated, misplaced, misunderstood…
Miss knowing it’s all good, It didn’t slow me down!
Mistaken, Always second guessing, underestimated…
Look, I’m still around!

Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you’re nothing…
You are perfect to me!

You’re so mean when you talk about yourself, you were wrong.
Change the voices in your head, make them like you instead!
So complicated, look how big you’ll make it!
Filled with so much hatred, such a tired game.
It’s enough! I’ve done all I can think of.
Chased down all my demons, I’ve seen you do the same.

Oh, pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel like you’re nothing.
You are perfect to me.

The whole world’s scared so I swallow the fear.
The only thing I should be drinking is an ice cold beer.
So cool in line, and we try try try, but we try too hard and it’s a waste of my time.
Done looking for the critics, cause they’re everywhere.
They dont like my jeans, they don’t get my hair.
Exchange ourselves, and we do it all the time.
Why do we do that? Why do I do that?
Why do I do that?

Yeah, oh, oh baby, pretty please!
Pretty pretty please, don’t you ever ever feel
Like you’re less than f*ckin’ perfect.
Pretty pretty please, if you ever ever feel
Like you’re nothing, you’re perfect to me

FASHION:

Sometimes, I get into these crazy styling frenzy especially when I’m passionately inspired. When I first saw the Breaking Apart Face Petals by Tableu Vivant at Culture Shock, I knew it was something I had to have. I LOVE unique things that I can incorporate into my styling and this flower petals, that seems to be blowing away from the face, jump started my imagination. While fighting heavy lag at Culture Shock, I came across Vero Modero where I found a very nice outfit called Culture Shock Vesti Set. I like the rich color of the vest but what attracted my eyes is the gorgeous collar that looks like Rose Petals. Uhmmm YES LADY, I know this outfit is female but that never stopped me before. (LMAO) Guys, don’t let a female outfit scare you. Take it apart and make it your own masculine style. In fact, I actually have my eye on two more female creations by Vero Modero that I can defiitely put my take on. Dear Bouquet Babii…I adore you. I love your female designs so much even though I am truly a MAN in SL and RL. lol.

Giz Seorn of GIZZA Fashion have been creating quite a stir with her win as BOSL Best New Designer of 2011. I can see why. Take a look below how unique and amazing these pants are which is part of the set: Shalwar. Uhm YES, this is the Male One. TYVM. OMG, I am a big fan of the shape and texture of the pants. It is so stylish..and combined with these amazing boots. Don’t get me started on the boots or I will have to write pages and pages. lol. Hat is from TMH called Fright Night. I chose FINESMITH Jewelry for the bracelet because it is no secret that I’m a big fan of Yula’s designs. The Harsch Inspiration bracelet and the cuff are to die for. YES, I am so much inspired that I am trying out for the FINESMITH Inspiration this month. Come join me. We’ll have a blast. You have until the end of June to enter. =)

FASHION: Champagne! Sparkling Fashion IMPERIAL

One of my favorite designer in Second Life has done it again. Enzo Champagne has created an eye catching masterpiece that just demands attention. The outfit fits the grand name: IMPERIAL.  This blue and silver shimmering stunner is finely detailed with exotic feathers, gems and silks. The magnificent headdress is adorned with diamonds and sapphires that is fit for a King. The grand voluminous feathers on the back is very exotic and rich with the striking combination of Blue, Silver and Black colors. The outfit also comes with a sash, briefs and wrist bands adorned with glittering diamonds and gems. Somehow when I wear this outfit, It makes me feel like a Grand Exotic Bird that Can’t Be Tamed. Enzo Champagne have that magical effect with his awesome designs. I always wait in excitement and anticipation with what he will come up next.

The makeup/tattoo layer is from Talyia Tarber’s Garded Secret called Male Black Swan. We also used this make-up on Fashion Teller’s “The Nutcracker” during The Serenade of the Swans Scene.

For those who don’t know me, I can get a bit crazy.
Have to get my way 24 hours a day,
‘Cause I’m hot like that.
Everyone everywhere just gives me mad attention
Like I’m under inspection, I always get the 10s…
‘Cause I’m built like that.

I go through love like money flyin’ out their hands.
They try to change me but they realize they can’t.
And every tomorrow is a day I never planned.
If you’re gonna be the one, understand:

I can’t be tamed, I can’t be saved.
I can’t be blamed, I can’t, can’t…
I can’t be tamed, I can’t be changed.
I can’t be saved, I can’t be (can’t be)
I can’t be tamed!

If I see my reflection about my intentions…
I’ll tell ya, I’m not here to sell ya.
Or tell ya to get to hell!
I’m like a puzzle but all of my pieces are jagged.
If you can understand this, we can make some magic
I’m on like that!

I wanna fly, I wanna drive, I wanna go.

I wanna be a part of something I don’t know.
And if you try to hold me back I might explode.
Baby by now you should know:

I can’t be tamed, I can’t be saved.
I can’t be blamed, I can’t, can’t…
I can’t be tamed, I can’t be changed.
I can’t be saved, I can’t be (can’t be)
I can’t be tamed!

I’m not a trick you play, I ride a different way.
I’m not a mistake, I’m not a fake, It’s set in my DNA!
Don’t change me (x4).
(I can’t be tamed)

I wanna fly I wanna drive I wanna go
I wanna be a part of something I don’t know
And if you try to hold me back I might explode
Baby by now you should know

I can’t be tamed, I can’t be saved
I can’t be blamed, I can’t, can’t
I can’t be tamed, I can’t be changed
I can’t be saved, I can’t be (can’t be)
I can’t be tamed

FASHION & POETRY: I Know WHy A Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Sophy Violet.

She is an amazing photographer as well as a designer. Watch Out cuz she is going to be HUGE. Check Out her FLICKR: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sophy_violet/

FASHION: I recently modeled this outfit for PASSION Agency’s Cabaret Colore Show and I just couldn’t wait to blog it. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit as well as the designer…Honey Bender. She is lovely and so friendly, not to mention super talented.The outfit is called FASTER PUSSYCAT Velvet Elvis. This tangerine colored jacket is finely detailed with zippers and pockets. The form and  style adds a very masculine touch in contrast to the flower petals that just flows nicely at both shoulders. This fantastic touch adds such a couture elegance that is so unique and beautiful yet still masculine. I love how it shows the chest. =) The necklace is also part of the outfit from Faster Pussycat called Velvet Elvis Dagger Necklace. Doesn’t the Faster Pussycat  Velvet Elvis Pants in yellow combined with the Badass Belt shows a bit of a rebel side? I love the texture…kinda like Punk Glam. =)

My awesome friend Talyia Tarber had given me this makeup/tattoo layer called Garded Secret Peacock feather makeup with Gold Lipstick. I knew I had to use it with this outfit. It is a perfect combination. I love the color combination of gold and green tones which really sets off the face and outfit. The hair is a combination of Uncle Web and TSM. I love combining hairstyles. lol.

Caged Bird

By Maya Angelou

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind
and floats downstream till the current ends
and dips his wing in the orange sun rays
and dares to claim the sky.
But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage
can seldom see through his bars of rage
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.
The free bird thinks of another breeze
and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees
and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn
and he names the sky his own.
But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams
his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing.
The caged bird sings with a fearful trill
of things unknown but longed for still.
and his tune is heard on the distant hill
for the caged bird sings of freedom.

FASHION & MUSIC: Bette Midler’s “The Rose” Starring RicoRacer Flux

The AWAKENING of a ROSE

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Talyia Tarber

FASHION: The awesome regal couture outfit is called Prince Rose from Cheerno. Grand red flower petals surround the collar which is contrasted by the starch white shirt. The pants goes very high up the waist which makes the outfit very unique and couture. I really love this outfit. Cheerno also made the butterflies around the face. The jewelry is from Mandala…both the necklace and the bracelets. They are actually women’s jewelry but they fit very well with this outfit. Hair is a new release from Tukinowaguma called Chus.

PIC INFO: I came to Talyia with an idea of a Spring Rose just “AWAKENING” after the bitter cold of the winter. The super talented Talyia actually build roses around my legs as I posed. Thanks so much Talyia. You always amazed me.

MUSIC: The ROSE

ARTIST: Bette Midler

WATCH:

LYRICS:

THE ROSE

Some say love..
It is a river that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love…
It is a razor that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love..
It is a hunger, an endless aching need.
I say love…
It is a flower and you, it’s only seed.

Its the heart, afraid of breaking,
that never learns to dance,
Its the dream afraid of waking,
that never takes the chance.
Its the one, who won’t be taken
who can not seem to be,
And the soul afraid of dying,
That never learns to live!

When the night has been too lonely,
and the road has been to long,
And you think, that love is only,
for the lucky and the strong!

Just remember, in the winter,
far beneath, the bitter snow,
lies the seed, that with the sun’s love,
in the spring, becomes the
Rose..

FASHION And FICTION: The Flight of Icarus by RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Cade Nansen http://www.flickr.com/photos/photoxtm/

FASHION: Bare Rose Apollo Toga Outfit complete with Wings and the skin is from The Abyss called Angel.

INFO: I chose this picture as the very first one to post on 2011 in my Flickr Stream because it is just awesome and I love the story of ICARUS which shows that anything is possible this year with caution and hard work.

THE FLIGHT OF ICARUS

ICARUS soared through the skies in great joy, loving the new found freedom and attention.
He ignored the warning that was given to him not to fly too close to the sun as it would melt the pair of wings fashioned from wax and feathers.

Overcome by the giddiness that flying lent him, Icarus rocketed through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which melted the wax. Icarus kept flapping his wings but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms. And so, Icarus fell to his death in the sea which bears his name, the Icarian Sea.

LYRICS:

BOYS of Summer

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer’s out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I’m drivin’ by your house
Though I know you’re not at home

But I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got your hair combed back and your sunglasses on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I never will forget those nights
I wonder if it was a dream
Remember how you made me crazy?
Remember how I made you scream
Now I don’t understand what happened to our love
But babe, I’m gonna get you back
I’m gonna show you what I’m made of

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
I see you walkin’ real slow and you’re smilin’ at everyone
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

Out on the road today, I saw a DEADHEAD sticker on a Cadillac
A little voice Inside my head said, “Don’t look back. You can never look back.”
I thought I knew what love was
What did I know?
Those days are gone forever
I should just let them go but-

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that top pulled down and that radio on, baby
And I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone

I can see you-
Your brown skin shinin’ in the sun
You got that hair slicked back and those Wayfarers on, baby
I can tell you my love for you will still be strong
After the boys of summer have gone.

INFO: I am learning the very basic Photoshop right now and this picture is my very first attempt. It is basically just Trial and Error. LOL. I wish I have someone to show me the ropes. Oh well. Anyway, I am so proud of it. =D Yay!

POEM: HOPE

POET: Emily Dickenson

“HOPE”

“Hope” is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—

And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—

I’ve heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Poem by Emily Dickinson

RicoRacer Flux’s “The Journey”: I’m really excited this week because I made it as a Finalist for the MAD Agency Model Search.  There are so many talented models on the list competing and I am nervous. I need to bring out my inner styling guru again and hopefully gain a spot in the agency. If not, I am always grateful for the opportunity and will try again next time. I hope they will understand my styling. I tend to go for flashy unique couture even for a male model. LOL. Think Alexander McQueen. This should be fun. =)  CONGRATULATIONS to all the finalist and Good Luck.

FASHION & MUSIC: Seal’s “Kiss From A Rose” Starring RicoRacer Flux

MODEL: RicoRacer Flux

PHOTOGRAPHER: Julie Hastings

FASHION: This wonderful white suit is from Lapointe & Bastchild. I really love the crisp white pureness of the suit in contrasts to the amazing dark vest and the red tie. The texture is exquisite especially how smooth and cool it appears. The little details on the suit adds class, from the buttons of the jacket to the belt and jacket tail. The ROSE boutonnière puts a touch of ROMANCE that would melt your date’s heart. I had the honor of modelling this suit for AGATA Agency’s “East Meets West Wedding Show Collection”. Thank You AGATA for the opportunity.

Kiss From A Rose LYRICS:

There used to be a graying tower alone on the sea.
You became the light on the dark side of me.
Love remained a drug that’s the high and not the pill.

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, The more I get of you,
Ooh…Stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain,
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
Baby,
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny.. yeah.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby?

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you
the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom.
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
…I’ve been…………………..I’ve…
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the gray.
I’ve been kissed by a rose on the gray,
…I’ve been…………………..I’ve…
…And if I should fall, at all
I’ve been kissed by a rose
…been kissed by a rose on the gray.

There is so much a man can tell you,
So much he can say.
You remain…….
My power, my pleasure, my pain.
To me you’re like a growing addiction that I can’t deny, yeah.
Won’t you tell me is that healthy, baby.

But did you know that when it snows,
My eyes become large and the light that you shine can be seen.

Baby,
I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray.
Ooh, the more I get of you….
the stranger it feels, yeah
Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

Yes I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the gray
Ooh, the more I get of you
the stranger it feels, yeah.
And now that your rose is in bloom
A light hits the gloom on the gray

Now that your rose is in bloom,
A light hits the gloom on the gray.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
RicoRacer Flux’s The Journey: A lot of people have wondered why I haven’t been on SL much. I took a little break from modelling and focusing more on my real life. Modelling can be really demanding especially on time, and there are some important things that I have neglected in RL and needed my attention. I always tell people to put Real Life FIRST. That’s why it is called Second Life. =) But of course, it doesn’t mean not to honor your SL commitments. BALANCE is the key. A model who takes long breaks sometimes worry about losing their spot/position in the industry, but I believe a break is necessary sometimes to energize and re-focus on your goals or else risk being burnt out. Also, It is important to learn to say NO and not overbooked on jobs. There was a time when I was doing 2 or more shows per week plus multiple print jobs, blogging and teaching on the side. I was absolutely going NUTS and modelling became stressful WORK instead of creative FUN. Anyway, I am starting modelling for magazines and store ads again and casting for shows. And NO, I have no intention at this time of being a partner in a modelling agency/academy, publishing or being an editor in a magazine or opening some kind of a styling business.Thank you for the consideration but I am not ready yet at this time for that type of commitment.  I just do what I do best for now…modelling. =)
