Eirini: a bit of peace in my hectic world

So here I am, standing in the middle of my totally awesome dance floor. Tori has put glass inserts in the huge wooden floor so you can look down at the sea beneath it and I put a wrought iron fence around it so that I wouldn't dance off into the the sea. Tori built ramps from the dance floor that lead up to the house and down to the beach, so access is easier now: no more climbing up those steep rocky hillsides. We have two apple trees now and both are magical. My favorite, of course, is the one I can climb, but the other tree gives hugs! Tori has planted grapevines and they have climbed all over the beams across the open patio. We have a sea gull that cries and flies all over the place and I have planted butterfly bushes in the hopes of attracting butterflies! I gave Tori a grill, but I had to extract a promise from him that he would not bbq the chickens! They have become like pets to me and I just love to hear their cute little cackles when I sit in the corner of the patio at my beautiful, little, blue table.

Eirini has become ours and I love the sharing that has made it that way. We have both worked on this very simple piece of SL to make it peaceful and relaxing. I am really very very happy here. I love waking up in the morning and being in this beautiful place. And a lot of the feeling comes from knowing that I live here with my wonderful sweetheart Tori.

Now if I could only figure out where this boat came from...

I love couples dancing

I was so tired last night after the dance that I went to bed directly afterward. I choreographed the formal couples dance at Swoon and we had a steady 7-8 couples useing my Intan. The people who come to Swoon for this event seem to be among the most gracious in SL: no immature use of gestures or poofers and everyone is so polite and friendly. It is one of my most favorite places to dance! And the requests from the couples kept Tina very busy - not an easy gig for her. A very eclectic mix of music (just like I like it!)

The couples dance is very late for Tori, so he is usually asleep when I dance. But tonight he stayed up to dance with me. And this makes two weeks in a row! He is certainly getting bad habits...
