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.

Sanctuary

While I am a big fan of winter, sometimes I just want to remember that there are places where things are green and growing and it’s warm outside. Cory Edo’s beautiful Iona Conservatory provides an elegant open space for Isla Gealach’s daybed and other bright accessories. After I hide out in here for a bit I’ll be ready to face the New England winter once again.

These Boots Ain’t Made for Walking…in Snow

Lindsey Warwick’s lovely new Evoke boots will show your legs to the best advantage…but I think they would not be of optimal usefulness in a tromp through the snow. Better all around to have a seat, look at the snow, and admire your beautiful legs and feet.

Modern

The new round of Collabor88 has opened with the theme of  “Modern Alchemy.” Oh, that such a thing existed in RL. Happily, everything I am wearing does exist, at least in pixel form. Modern alchemy achieved.

I have always had this dream of having a covered porch. A place to relax but still be aware of what is going on outside. A peaceful, cozy place like this.

Cat Sitter

The Arcade is in full swing and one of my favorite vendors this time around is Fashionably Dead, who has flooded the grid with beautifully drawn kitties. Bastion was kind enough to let me drop him in the middle of my feline swarm today. It’s a large photo, so click through if you want to see the full-sized version.

Study Break

This weekend is the Rhode Island Academic Decathlon competition. That means my oh-so-delightful-but-procrastinating students put in a long weekend of studying in preparation for a lot of test taking today.

I was wondering what that might look like in SL, and fortunately my collection of books came in handy. Vespertine has quite a few lovely book options in their Arcade gacha this round so it was fun to round them up and put them to good use. Another Arcade jewel is Truth Hawks’ Maiko hair with headphones—they provide a much needed break from all that book-studying. And my sweet heart necklace can be found at this round of One Word.

I also cannot say enough good things about Barnesworth Anubis’ wonderful 5th avenue skybox, out at Collabor88 now. I can see myself living in this one for some time.

Behind The Times

When the Phat Azz came out I stared aghast for a couple of seconds and then summarily dismissed it from my mind. However, many people embraced the (to me) gigantic posterior. And since there’s not much booty flying around on my blog, it wasn’t really relevant to me anyway.

Insert the Cute Azz, which is significantly smaller and inspired me to wear panties, which I think I have worn about three times in four years. Of course, having seen Izzie Button’s other panty offerings may change that. The Cute Azz is smaller and more (again, to me) realistic looking, and is utterly adorable from the side.

Am I going to wear it all the time? Probably not. But it does live up to its name.
