I wept to see him suffer, though I didn’t know him well.

I’ve taken a step back from blogging as much  because I really wanted to focus on some other things, but then, Collabor88 started today.  I just had to go shopping crazy, and then show them all to you.  There are so many well done and beautiful items.  One of my favorites this round was the bohemian islet dress/shirt from u.f.o.  I love it.  I am so glad someone decided to make something like this in SL.  It is the kinda thing you wear for days just because you feel pretty in it.  With the shirt version, I opted for some denim shorts from Decoy because they were a tad bit longer and could peek out a bit more.  I tried a few other shorts and they were either too short or stuck out at the wrong spots.

I’m so happy ISON made shoes for my flat SLink feet. I have been purchasing high heels in everything, but it is nice to have a flat style to switch in.  The sandal style is versatile so you can wear it with dresses or a casual top and jeans.

B&W Challenge: Constantly Saving Myself from Self-Destruct.

I often feel like I am my own worst enemy.  I focus 100% on the task at hand.  Good-If you have my attention, then you have 100% of it.  Bad-If you don’t, I will ignore you.  This seeps into every ounce of my fiber.  Whatever I am not doing, kinda just fades to the back of my mind.  Inevitably, some things get out of hand and some people get pretty mad.

Two things collide in these pics: The Black and White Challenge by Maci Restless and the fact that I feel a bit overwhelmed.  I was aiming to do something destructive to match my mood at the moment.  I was just testing poses, and realized that this particular pose above by Delmay looked as if I was trying to catch the bat thwarted by the object in the back. Voila. Perfect. I kinda liked it. The area was particle heavy and all the shots, no matter what, would not cooperate, so I cropped it more than I wanted.  I didn’t really fix anything…just let it be and changed the colors. I did have a story in my own head about these photos.  They may not be my best, but I loved thinking outside of the box, and trying to make it happen!  Thanks Maci!

FaMESHed is under way.  They have tons of goodies.  I am being a conservationist and only buying what I plan on using in the moment instead of going FaMeshING-crazy.  This round, I picked up some shoes by Decoy and some hair by Wasabi Pills.  I am sure I will keep going back to FaMESHed all month.  I also tried and loved the Glam Affair Lilith Skin.  It is beautiful.  Is it me?  Not so sure.  I loved it enough to buy it though! Her skins are always so sleek and sophisticated.  They scream buy me.   I am sure you will see it sprinkled among my blog posts.  Kamouraska also put out Noranda Chevron Kaftan dress in an exclusive Teal color for her group gift this month!  Kamouraska does have new exclusives each month, so make sure to join right now–it’s free!  (Sorry, you can’t see the color…whoopsy!)

Feast on your Life

It is getting late.  I don’t have tooo00 much to add to the world at this moment, so I offer a favorite poem by  Derek Walcott instead.

Love After Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome, and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger who has loved you

all your life, whom you ignored
for another, who knows you by heart.
Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,

the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.
Sit. Feast on your life.
