Every once in a while, when I am very introspective, I dig through the clutter of my soul, poking around in those dark dusty corners. I bring out cherished memories, either write about them or simply dust them off and tuck them lovingly back in for another day. Others I bring out and inspect, making sure they keep a little bit of the dust, because some memories are more calming with a fine layer of dust insulating them from the pain they cause us. ~Cao

And my besty Skip has very graciously announced he will offer a Second picture of you for FREE! See why I love him so much? Follow this LINK to see some of his other work. To bid, you only need to contact me via one of the many different ways found at the very bottom of the page at this link, HERE or simply by dropping an inworld NC to, Caoimhe Lionheart (yep that’s the name I go by inworld) However as many of you know, I’m not inworld an awful lot, so NC will probably be more reliable than an IM though email at caoimhelionheart@yahoo.com is probably your fastest response.

shrimp boat at dawn

Just a little something to remember for those who structure their lives from sun up to sunset. I am one of those laidback people that get up whenever, go to bed or eat when I feel like it and just really take the term “play it by ear” to the next level. I can’t help it, there isn’t too much in this world that honestly frustrates me. Florida isn’t known for its jetset lifestyle and neither are Cao’s. I know to you people out there who are “driven”, my lackadaisical arbitrariness would probably drive you up the wall. I can’t help it, I just feel that in the journey through life, we should explore the nooks and crannies, and search out the whimsy, because honestly, we will both get to the finish line at about the same time. The story of the turtle and the hare wasn’t too far off the mark. Take from? Live each day as if tomorrow you will die, because you just might. You never know what the future entails for you, so make sure you squeeze every bit of life and happiness out of the days you do have.


Those who have followed my blog for a bit know, I don’t blog skins. I am one of those models Frolic complains about when he says update your skin! I’ve worn the same skin for years. I change makeups not skins. Well, my friend Aleida Rhode of Elysium dropped off her three skins for 2013’s The Skin Fair (March 15 thru March 31st) with the comment, “if you don’t like them, you don’t have to blog them…” I actually love all three! So I will start with this one, “Liv.” The thing that strikes me the most is the naturalness of the eyebrows. YAY! Haute Couture eyebrows, finally! See? I’m a nice Cao, I’ve even included the taxi: Taxi:


This outfit was gathered up today when I went blog perving. I can’t help it. Yes, I am a blog-a-holic. While dickering around on my flickr friend Jay Nathan’s “Battlescar’s” blog,Taxi: , I was pushing his buttons, actually following his links, and ran across one of his sponsor stores, KidDreamz’s, [Dynasty]. I know, normally girls don’t shop menswear, but darn it all, it was a peacoat for crying out loud! I couldn’t resist! So Jay? I borrowed your jacket, I promise, I’ll return it. Um, next time I see you. My inworld name is JaneDoe Resident.
