Three Songs on a Saturday! (Re-blogged)

Saturday sunshine means nice weather for beach clean-up!

The gaming continues in earnest, as there are a few events going on through the end of the month. These include an epic contest with awesome in-game and real-life prizes, the chance to earn three free crown crates whether you subscribe or not, a free mount for those who have the “full package,” and a free pet for everyone!

Enjoy the music, and be sure to check out my Twitch channel for the live-stream of in-game action. The caveat, as always, is the potential for crashes and other fun malfunctions when there is a higher-than normal in-game population stressing the gaming servers!

Belated Memoriam: Dr. Maya Angelou (Re-blogged)

Tribute post, re-blogged.

We miss you, Doctor Angelou. Your wisdom is needed these days. Now, more than ever.

Dr. Maya Angelou (née Marguerite Ann Johnson): 4 April 1928 – 28 May 2014

I literally shed tears when I saw the news…Dr. Maya Angelou – author, poet, songstress, honored recipient of multiple awards, and renowned “Global Renaissance Woman” – passed away on 28 May, at the age of 86. She died in her sleep at her home in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Words still can’t convey the sadness I feel, even after watching re-airings of some of her many interviews – part of that sadness is due to the fact that I hoped to meet her and have her read my book. At the same time, I know that I should honor and celebrate the fantastic, rich, full life that she led. I feel blessed that I had the privilege to read her writings and glean some life-altering lessons from them. My most important personal motto, “Everything in moderation –…

Full Moon Music (Re-blogged)

Eyrie Of An Aries

Tonight’s full moon is the second one in this month, making it a “Blue Moon.” There will be no full moon in February of this year; the last time this occurred was in 1999.

There is also a total lunar eclipse, which will be visible before the moon sets in the morning hours. People in the Midwestern USA, and as far west as Hawai’i, will be able to view this beautiful sight.

To mark this astronomical event, I offer up three moon-related songs for our collective auditory enjoyment. Go ahead – do some dancing in the moonlight.

Friday Fun-Time…My Sweet Tooth! (Re-blogged)

No new “Last Week Tonight,” so I figured I’d re-blog this “Five on Friday” post instead.

It’s a Mercury Retrograde Monday!

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

Anyone who has REALLY read my blog for any length of time knows that I am a relatively healthy, active woman. I enjoy exercising and eating right, but I also have my own personal pleasures and mild indulgences from time to time! One of my favourite mottoes has always been “Everything in moderation…including moderation!” Thank you to the late, great, estimable, epic, phenomenal Maya Angelou for that quote; I’d been using it since junior high school, but learned that she was the originator of it, only a few years ago. Great Aries minds think alike at times, I’d say!

Anyway, this “Fun Friday Facts” post is about my sweet tooth and five of my favourite sugary treats, followed by three syrupy-sweet songs! Let’s get the ball rolling…

Lindt brand LINDOR truffles: they’re simply divine, in my estimation…I only like the milk chocolate, and one 75-piece bag will last me…

Sepultura’s Saturday Screen-Shots: Steampunk City! (Re-blogged)

Eyrie Of An Aries

Here’s a small selection of some of my most recent in-game screen-shots, as promised! In these images I’m exploring the new, steampunk-styled land of The Elder Scrolls Online, the awesome game that I enjoy playing. I’ll be live-streaming some gameplay later on this evening, so tune in to my Twitch channel if you’re awake, grab a drink and a snack, and watch the fun!

Sampling a freshly-made batch of the old crone’s brew.

Flame-inspired meditation in the forest…very relaxing.

A new tree has sprung up in the garden of the grand manor…

It is certainly an interesting addition!

The entrance to the city of cogs and gears.

What the…? I’m shrinking!

Facing off against an army of automatons…

There – that should take care of them!

The new scenery is fascinating, and quite pleasing to the eye.

New quests and adventures await the intrepid explorer!

Paying due…

Beautiful Images (Re-blogged)

Eyrie Of An Aries

Here is a wonderful collection of images I found while combing the corners of cyberspace for inspiration. I thought that I’d share them with others who will appreciate them.

You’re welcome.

International Images for International Women’s Day (Re-blogged)

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

I decided to post some multi-cultural images in observation of International Women’s Day. Other blogs and articles that I read today are strictly focused on European or Asian women, so I wanted to give those of us who are severely under-represented the spotlight!

Midweek Musings: International Women’s Day (Re-blogged)

International Women’s Day is on a Thursday this year. I decided to post my “Midweek Musings” from last year about this day.

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

Today is International Women’s Day, and March is Women’s History Month. What, if anything, do these observances mean to myself and other women around the world? It depends on who you ask, where that person resides, and what their perspectives and experiences are. When I talk with others, I look for common ground and relatable experiences to initiate dialogue. Then, if I find a difference in personal experiences between myself and another, I ask questions in an attempt to learn about and understand that person’s unique experiences. The funny thing about this is, even the most basic questions that I ask of others never really get answered! This makes it difficult to know where another person is coming from, and makes it virtually impossible to meet them halfway with anything.

These hiccups in communication mostly occur in online interactions, especially when there are differences in language and culture…

Good-Bye, 2016: Year-End Round-Up (Re-blogged)

I used to write longer posts. One of those was my year-end roundup of 2016.

😎

Eyrie Of An Aries

Well, this year is drawing to a close. In some parts of the world, it is already 2017. It isn’t quite noon in my neck of the woods, however, so there are still 13 hours left in what has been a year of sorrow. Still, it has had many joyful moments – for me and mine, at least!
I’m thankful to have not suffered any personal losses; for the health problems some of my family members have, they are still here – and I’m very happy and grateful for that. So, I’m starting off with the celebrity deaths that impacted me the most, which is my disclaimer for not mentioning every single one who passed – it’s quite a long list as it is, and I dedicated entire blog-posts to the most notable ones.

Natalie Cole: technically, she passed away on 31 December 2015, but her death wasn’t announced…

Friday Fun: Undeniable Facts (Re-blogged)

This post warranted a re-blog while I work on some future ones.

Eyrie Of An Aries

Instead of the usual “Five on Friday” post, I wanted to publish a few thought-provoking quotes inspired by casual observations about personal interactions. It would be nice if they evoked genuine conversation.

I’m not holding my breath.
