Look at what my love is doing for me in honor of V-day….be jealous!
A very special day is coming… Valentine’s Day.
And for that day of lovers and love and chocolate and flowers and enough romance to fill you until next year’s V-Day, I decided to share my love for my beautiful, talented, sweet, funny, and slightly crazy better-half, Earth Nirvana-Charisma.
From today until V-Day, I will be posting a few pics of me wearing my wifey’s wares, and sharing a fond memory of why I love her so much.

Model: Shon Charisma
Earth: “Love that shirt sistah”
Shon: “Aw, thanks! I picked it up a while ago, but love wearing it”
Earth: “Considering I made it…that is great to hear”
Shon: “Ha! Now that’s funny to me. I had a FEELING you made it”
This was all that was needed for a bond to blossom……
Our courtship was slow but steady and a complete surprise. When we initially met, I was already involved with someone, so I was not looking for anything beyond a friendship but ended up with more than anticipated. Banter over Facebook pictures led to a revealed interest in my products, which gave birth to a full fledge Second Life enquirer (SLE) interview. Through the interviewing process, I was able to learn more about her not just as a writer but her interest in cinematography.
From the moment she opened up about her passions, I was all in, totally captivated by the fact her interest extended beyond clubbing. I knew I had to learn more but at the same time keep my boundaries as to not disrespect my current situation.
Within a short period of time, Shon became part of my SL experience, the idea that I would not spend time with her inworld bothered me in some small way. It amazed me, and still amazes me to the day that I have met someone I could break the morning sky with, play & work with, indulge whims with…..
Time with her is time well spent.
Enter a break up..
Moving with ease & certainty, I seek to spend even more time with the woman that would later become my Bunny. Whether it was spending time with hers, now mine kids, shopping or watching her perform with UNITY, my SL experience had more purpose.
In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, I have the opportunity to spent one-on-one time with Shon’s 2 girls, Vae & Saphire. Shon gets the chance to meet my two girls Karma & Coco and even my new grand babies. The family unit is coming together….
BUT..then I learn from Shon, she is not interested in a romantic relationship. I figure my chances with her are nil, so I settle on the friendship. I was willing to take her in whatever capacity worked for her.
Fast forward to November….
The holidays are in full swing & I was surprisingly invited attend dinner @ the Charisma estates with Vae, Saphire & Shon that would ultimately change the course of my experience. After dinner but before dessert, Shon Charisma ask if I would be her girlfriend, check yes or no.
Vae, got hold of the marker before I had a chance to check a box, so I simply said Yes!
November 23, 2011 Shon Charisma & Earth Nirvana offically became a couple. We had our official coming out party “Hip Hop is Dead” December 29th but that story is for another day….
For now, we are happy, healthy & creatively in-sync. ♥

Conjuring the Valentine spirit, I questioned what I could do for my Valentine that would be memorable, fun with a touch of uniqueness. Candy & flowers doesn’t quite capture the words I wish to convey to a woman who has made my SL all the more interesting & beautiful.
FINALLY, it hit me! A Hunt! I mean Hello! Its only my second life’s work. So, on our Valentine’s Day (Feb 17th) I will present my Bunny with a hunt of her very own!
At each location highlighted in dark blue seek out the clues highlighted in light blue
