Always an adventure...

One thing I can count on it has always been an adventure with you and that is a good thing. We had so much fun just relaxing in our pool after the big "Mile High Club" Party.

If you missed that special set at the Basement Club, don't worry we will have more coming. Usually, there is one special theme per month. You can always catch us here Friday, Saturday, and Sundays for fun and laughter.

Here are some highlights from the clouds above...
Flight attendant Deb was busy entertaining the Pilot and Co-Pilot. Captain Jack waiting for his personal flight attendant Shy to arrive and Candi was praying that the plane won't go down.

Protected by some naughty angels, we can begin the descent to the ground.

Time to put on the parachutes because as soon as the set is done, we are all going down.

I think this was a lot of fun, nobody got hurt and we all made it back down to the ground. Don't miss the next BIG adventure at the Basement Club...look for announcements at the Club or join the group.

8-10 PM SLT

We will be here to greet you.
Come party with us as you walk around the Retreat and see the more than 100 flamingoes. They will all fly away soon, so this is a short event.


There will be ONE blue Flamingo that is packed with some gifts for you. So hurry and stop by. The blue one will not be out until Wednesday itself.

We encourage you to come and take pictures and post them in the Retreat Flickr Group. Never know I might just pick a winner for an additional gift.

"Killer" and my road trip!!!

It was time for s short road trip with "Killer" and myself. We all need some maintenance and Killer needed some new tires. I stopped at this fine garage to get him serviced.

Here are a few mental and physical self-care ideas you can (realistically) incorporate into your day:
  • Take 3 deep breaths when feeling stressed
  • Get 15 minutes of sun on a lunch break 
  • Have a quick, 20-minute nap to recharge the mind
  • Journal your thoughts for 15 minutes a day
  • Watch your favorite funny YouTube video for a midday laugh
  • Listen to your favorite music for 20 minutes. No texting or browsing — just you and the music.
  • Meditate for 10 minutes a day. Clear your mind. Don’t hold onto or push any ideas away — accept them and move on. 
  • Go on a 30-minute walk. Notice the world. Notice the part you play in it.
  • Drink more water by keeping a bottle at your desk and always refilling when empty.
  • Take a relaxing bath instead of the usual quick shower. Make it an affair. Light candles, play music, prepare a book you don’t mind getting wet.
I saved you :)

Mile High Club Party

This will be a lot of fun and everybody is invited to come by the Basement Club and use the special teleport that will take you up into the clouds into the "Mile High Club" where we will party.

6-8 PM SLT

We will play the Travis Train Game (Travis Plane Game on this day ) for some Linden cash...also we will have a contest for those with the best contest of either wings, pilots, flight attendants or anything else that has to do with flying. Be creative.

There will be a parachute to grab and then at the end of the set we do the countdown 5,4,3,2,1 and parachute down to the Basement...all of us together. Should be a great sight.

Neverland Valley

Neverland Valley
Neverland - Replica of Michael Jackson 's real home
In tribute to the King
Train Rail Station - Main House - Amusement Park - Zoo - Theatre

If you like Michael Jackson you may like this place.

The music stream at this place is all MJs songs. If you listen really carefully you may actually hear Micheal here. 
So smile when you are here and enjoy.

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...
If you smile
With your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile 
If you just...
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just...
Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky
You'll get by...
If you smile
Through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile...
That's the time you must keep on trying
Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

You can take a little train around the property and also ride some of the rides...it is worthwhile :)
SMILE

Happy Birthday to me !!!

The picture was taken at the Chapel at the Retreat
I try to be many things to people, but sometimes friendship is not enough. Today on my real-life birthday I reflect on the past year. I feel good, I really do, because those who walked away are still fighting their battle of being themselves. 

Remember :

The hardest battle you're ever going to fight is the battle to be just YOU!!!

That is a very powerful statement and especially for those of us who use second life to hide away from ourselves. Be You, do not divide yourself into several avatars...just be YOU. I must say I am feeling great about the fact that I do not have avatar after avatar running around deceiving people. When you deceive you are never true to yourself. Be YOU!!!

Thank you google :)
