My world: Danny

“To the world you may be one person, but to me you are the whole world!”

– Heather Cortez

Happy Valentines Day Danny.  You are my whole SL and I love deeply.  Forever and ever may we share special days together!

Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs;
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals;
and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself.
Especially, do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love;
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be,
and whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

Family Life Pitfalls

Posted in Uncategorized on December 8, 2009 by Shakespeare Seuss

Well, maybe family life isn’t so great.  My dad – Nolan – is freaking out.  Yesterday, my stupid brother announced to him and the world that he and Ben were boyfriends.  Fine.  Be boyfriends.  That’s great.  I don’t care.  But don’t tell Daddy Nolan all about it.  Let him think you’re just friends.  That’s what Danny and I have been doing now for over three years and it worked fine.  But no, my dope brother had to go and tell him all about it.  And boy was Daddy Nolan sour about the whole thing. And to make matters worse, he found at that Danny and I really are boyfriends too and not just friends.  He flew off the handle.

I sure hope Daddy Brendon can talk some sense into him, because he is getting all puritanical on us.  He’s got his whole slew of new rules he’s about to lay down, like we’re not going to be able to even be alone together ever basically, and some crazy curfew thing too.  Its like he can’t trust KJ and me suddenly because we’re getting closer in that way to Ben and Danny.  I don’t know.  Its impossible to talk to him when he gets like this.

Family Life

Posted in Uncategorized on December 7, 2009 by Shakespeare Seuss

KJ and I have been acting a lot more like brothers the past couple weeks than we have ever before, and that has felt good.  We have our dads – Brendon and Nolan – and for the first time in my SL the family role play seems to actually be working for me.

On top of that, Danny has two new dads too and I’ve met one of them, who seems really really nice.  I’ve also been thinking a lot about Sacha, who really wants a dad, and thinking about letting Nolan be his dad.  And KJ has been talking about us adopting Ben too into our family, but he and Ben are now boyfriends, so I’m not sure if he still really wants him to be his brother too.

Family role play in Second Life is extremely intense for me, and can be intense in a very good way.  The role plays I did with KJ around Thanksgiving time were really powerful for me, and I still can’t get them out of my head.  Now that RL has picked up its pace again, I don’t have anywhere near that time to dedicate to Second Life, but I don’t want to let those experiences vanish either.

In other words, life is good.  Let’s live it up!

Peace out everybody!

I’m a little overdue here for an update, so going to try to catch up a little bit here.  Life is good.  I’ve been hanging out a lot with my dads in Second Life and also my brother KJ.  I’ve made a few new friends recently that I’ve been talking to a bit more.  Life is busy though so I don’t get to hang out with friends nearly as much as I wish I could be.  I’m in a play right now, in “A Christmas Carol” and that keeps me busy too.  Also working on writing.  Not that you could tell from reading this rambling post, but hey, what do you expect.  I’m pressed for time.  Given my recent blogging record, you should be happy I’m writing anything at all!

Selected lyrics from Jay Sean’s “Down”

Posted in Uncategorized on November 26, 2009 by Shakespeare Seuss

You oughta know,
tonight is the night to let it go,
Put on a show, I wanna see how you lose control,
So leave it behind ’cause we have a night to get away,
So come on and fly with me, as we make our great escape.

You won’t be lonely, even if the sky is falling down,
Baby are you down down down down down,
Down, Down,
Even if the sky is falling down..
