I’m not big on praying, I should say that up front. The idea of an Almighty looking down on us and having an element of control over what happens is at direct odds with the amount of religious wars, human suffering and craziness around.
So, I don’t pray to say thank you. I don’t thank a god for my life, I don’t think a god for the food I eat and I don’t thank a god for each new day. I don’t thank a god for my blessings or for the people who love me. But that doesn’t mean to say I’m not immensely privileged and I realise how lucky I am in comparison to many other people.
I appreciate the life I have, but I am not grateful for it. I believe that I am in control of my life and what happens to a large extent and I can make a difference day to day.
The exception to all this ‘not praying to a god’ is when someone asks me to or needs it. Then I will. After all, if they have faith, what harm can it possibly do? I think if there is a god, if he listens, then he’d want prayers to be about other people and how they can be helped.
How do you feel about the idea of a god who hears your prayers?

Vinyl’s partnered up with Azhuci again for the Dyne Vintage Dress available right now at Whimsical. You’ll love how you can change the cup and lace colours within the HUD. The fit is great for Maitreya (I’ve not checked the other mesh body sizes but I’m sure they’ll be A-Ok).
*RealEvil*’s Cora Harness is a new release for Tres Chic and I’ve chosen to make my harness brown leather, to go with my choice of dress colour. You can choose from many colours of leather to best complement the look you’re going for, however. Arm Harnesses for Maitreya and the Slink bodies only (although I guess you could try a demo if you wanted to and don’t have those bodies).
Here’s a well lit, no shit shot – click to see me huge.
And finally, a dancing video so you can check out rigging 😀
