A Girl and Her Sphynx

Hi guys and gals!

I can't believe it's been over two months since I last posted to Coffee and Flowers! After Indie Teepee ended, there were still a few loose ends that needed tying up. I forgot that, which is totally naive and unreasonable. THEN, I took a position at MadPea as a Marketing Assistant! I'm talking immediately after Indie Teepee. So I've been all over the place, and dear C&F suffered a lack of content!

Once I feel that my feet are on solid ground, I hope to post more regularly.

Now that I'm done with the Chatty Kathy things, here's some news:

Indie Teepee 2016!

It's right around the corner, running from July 8th to July 24th.

I'm on the team, so now that we're a month shy of opening, it's rightly kicking my arse. Thus, I won't be able to post here until after opening. In the meantime, take a look at the website and like us on Facebook!

Thank you muchly,
Amabeans

Hi and Bye

Hello all!

It's been a while since I posted.

I will not be blogging for the foreseeable future. My reasons are based on both the good and bad happening in RL. It's this combination of things that sorta... precludes my ability to blog. And surely, there are bloggers who would enjoy having a chance to blog for the brands who have sponsored me, so it is only fair that I give up the spot for someone who CAN give the designers/events what they ask for.

I have enjoyed my time as a blogger. I first started blogging in 2011 under my first avatar, so it's definitely not an easy decision to make. It is a necessary one, though.

I'll leave the bloggo up for perhaps a week because you might want to grab the URLs of some of my favorite bloggers. It's to the right.

You, my dear readership, have been the best. I hope this blog directed you toward some of the best brands SL has to offer.

I believe that's it!

(Also, I am not leaving SL at all. I just won't be able to blog!)

à demain...

Ama

A piece for you...

Here's a preview, from two video comments:

Not a numbers guy but noticed this was 150,000 hits for Beth's theme. Music for the weary, tired, broken, fragile, melancholy. A melody for the soul. But more than that, a prayer of a song. Hope, even when life is hard and every breath is an effort. Can you feel it? The piano playing in unison with the pulse of the universe. Oh, the heartbeat of the cosmos. How beautiful. How true. We are the stars.
-- YT user

Everytime I hear this I start to cry. For those of us fortunate enough to never have experienced a difficult loss like Beth, this soundscape translates it beautifully right to the heart.
