We Will Pass Away

We will pass away. I, NezahualCóyotl, say, Enjoy! Do we really live on earth? Ohuaya ohuaya!

Not forever on earth, only a brief time here! Even jades fracture; even gold ruptures, even quetzal plumes tear:

Not forever on earth: only a brief time here! Ohuaya ohuaya!

 

-In Xochinquahuitl, by Nezahualcoyotl, from Flower Songs of Nezahualcoyotl

The excellent CGI Student Academy Gold Medal Winner for Short Film was the inspiration for this photo, as well as the art of the incredible artist T.W. Rutledge. If you haven’t seen this video, take the time to watch it, especially if you want to know more about what El Día de los Muertos is all about. Rucy Byron’s wonderful Los Muertos skeleton gacha at Wayward Halloween provided my joyful, dancing Muerta.

Autumn Home

I’ve been having a wonderful time landscaping and decking out a friend’s sim for the autumn season. While there is more variety than ever for high-quality autumn landscaping items, I would love to see even more of this type of thing in SL. Maple trees would be especially appreciated! Goodness knows if I had an inkling of creative talent it would be all about the plants! Cory Edo’s Rustic Cabin brings in some wonderful colors to complement the landscape.

I used about a million different trees and plants so I am not listing specifics here. However, if you have a question about where I got a particular item, please feel free to IM me in world or email me at elizaquixote@gmail.com. I’d be happy to give you the details.
