Waiting

Dear Mother Nature,

I live in New England. This brings certain expectations that there will be seasons. Those seasonal expectations do NOT include 80-plus degree weather in September. If our winter is the same as last year I am sure I will be bemoaning that when the time comes as well, but for now, Mother Nature, please bring on the autumn that I moved to New England for.

Sincerely yours,

Sweaty Eliza

Beach Weather

Although springtime is heading quickly into summer, the monster winter that has just passed has not yet been banished from my mind. Fortunately, the wealth of summery items coming out lately is washing those icy memories slowly away. Today was the perfect day to relax on the deck of Cory Edo’s beautiful beach hut. This pose is one of Luna Jubilee’s latest, available at The Men’s Dept. Thanks to Stewart for helping me with the pose today.

Spring Song

Come and let us seek together
Springtime lore of daffodils,
Giving to the golden weather
Greeting on the sun-warm hills.

Ours shall be the moonrise stealing
Through the birches ivory-white;
Ours shall be the mystic healing
Of the velvet-footed night.

Ours shall be the gypsy winding
Of the path with violets blue,
Ours at last the wizard finding
Of the land where dreams come true.

-Spring Song, Lucy Maud Montgomery

Here Nor There

When I ventured here
Truth was far not near
So I traveled on
Truth revealed in song

I was here nor there
Always asking where
So I took my time
My heart for me to find

    There are times when in expressing oneself only a Haiku will do –

    What he writes here in
    response is something you wish
    he had said aloud.

Embrace

The Liaison Collaborative is featuring a good number of romantic and sweet couples poses this round, so I strong-armed Stewart into helping me with one of them today. To give him credit, he only grumbled a little.

I also don’t seem to be able to resist working Cory Edo’s glorious Iona Conservatory at Collabor88 into as many photos as possible.

One note on today’s photo: I did have to do a little bit of editing on Damselfly’s lovely Alba hairstyle simply because the neck of my sweater is huge and poked through it a bit. When you haven’t got a gigantic sweater on, it looks like this! Alba is available at the Fantasy Collective which began yesterday.

I Will Dream

As far as nighties go, I am afraid I wear more of the sturdy flannel variety in RL. Especially in January. But even in RL I do dream sometimes of lovely creations such as the Laurel Lace dress from Baiastice at Collabor88 this round. Specifically I dream that I would look good in it.

In my imagination
You are my dear companion
And I’m the one you cling to
And your voice still calls my name

And though you say you do not want me
And your dreams are never of me
I will dream my dream of you

I Will Dream, Emmylou Harris
