5000 days in SL...

I sometimes wonder if the dogs age calculation (one dog year = 7 human years) is also valid for avatars. I would be 98! My last dog reached a bit less then 5000 days and died of old age after a full and happy life. 5000 days is a long journey, filled with love stories, deceptions, tears and laughter, amazing friendships, a lot of silly acts and mischiefs - and a still growing collection of artworks.

I was recently asked if SL changed me over the years. The answer is yes, and no. Ambre and I RL were  perfect twins 5000 days ago, and although we are still one mind and soul, each life has blossomed with unique qualities. So, SL has not changed me. In the tree of possibilities, new branches grew, new fruits came to existence. In this sense, SL has considerably enriched my inner life. 

In the early days of Ambre, as an insight, I wrote in my profile: 

“It is your mind that creates this world”, said Buddha. All you do in SL will subtly change you and others in all worlds. So in my life and art, I thrive to add my spice, beauty and love.

Today, it has become a certitude.  

Be kind, with yourself and others. Sow love. Let beauty wherever you go.

A 5000 kisses Deep,

Ambre

Lyrics:

The ponies run, the girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while and then it's done
Your little winning streak
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life as if it's real
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks, I'm getting fixed
I'm back on boogie street
You lose your grip and then you slip
Into the masterpiece
And maybe I had miles to drive
And promises to keep
You ditch it all to stay alive
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when the night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep

Confined to sex we pressed against
The limits of the sea
I saw there were no oceans left
For scavengers like me
I made it to the forward deck
I blessed our remnant fleet
And then consented to be wrecked
A thousand kisses deep

I'm turning tricks I'm getting fixed
I'm back on boogie street
I guess they won't exchange the gifts
That you were meant to keep
And quiet is the thought of you
The file on you complete
Except what we forgot to do
A thousand kisses deep

And sometimes when the night is slow
The wretched and the meek
We gather up our hearts and go
A thousand kisses deep 

The ponies run, the girls are young
The odds are there to beat
You win a while and then it's done
Your little winning streak
And summoned now to deal
With your invincible defeat
You live your life as if it's real
A thousand kisses deep
