Por eso vivo
Porque de tu belleza soy testigo
Quiero nacer y renacer otra vez contigo
Adentrarme en tus tierras y crecer
Por eso vivo yo

For now it seems as though
you are still summer
still the high familiar
endless summer
yet with a glint
of bronze in the chill mornings
and the late yellow petals
of the mullein fluttering
on the stalks that lean
over their broken
shadows across the cracked ground

-To the Light of September, W.S. Merwin

I don’t usually design my outfit around my hair, but today it was impossible to do anything else. Alice Demonia’s release at Cinema is a gorgeous windswept style. Of course in RL my hair would be a tangled, ratty mess, and totally lacking the heavy luster of this style—yet another reason to be grateful for SL. My cozy sweater and skirt are from Thetra Blackheart’s offering at the Designer Circle this round. And from the look of things Hurricane Sandy may get our leaves blowing in earnest pretty soon!

When I moved to New England from the Southern United States I came with some expectations about the winter. Like that it would be cold, and that there would be snow. I grew up in the western United States where there was always abundant snow and my home state is one of the most popular for skiing in the country. But we always heard about this super-wintry Northeast weather. So we have been here about six years and on only one of those years have I actually had to wear my winter coat. And also only one year have we had any snow to speak of. So it’s a little disappointing to have to get my snow fix from SL, but there you go. Today I wandered around the North Pole Sleigh Adventure sim and it was really quite enchanting. It’s worth checking out. Just watch out for the sleighs, I did almost get run down a couple of times!


My scarf, earrings and pants today are all from the Designer Circle this week. This cycle won’t last much longer so get over there while you can!

    You look beautiful! And we have no snow right now either…in the middle of Canada no less!


One of my advisees at school was expressing some angst recently at the fact that no high school boys like her. Rye is 6 feet tall and has legs up to her ears and is truly one of the most spectacular-looking girls I have ever met. And she’s fifteen. It doesn’t help that she looks like she’s twenty-five. How to tell a girl like this that all she has to do is wait? That the time will soon come when no one is going to be able to notice anyone else when she is around? And is your academic advisor really the person you want to have tell you that you are beautiful?  At fifteen she doesn’t care about in a few years and the now is all-encompassing. Oh, I do remember that. But really, it IS normal for sophomore boys to be totally clueless when it comes to girls. I see it every day. I hope she recognizes that, and remembers.

Rye has hair just like this, long and thick and wavy—maybe Truth Hawks was thinking of someone like Rye when he created this design. Rye also has a beautiful, individual face. When I put on the new Wendy skin from Unique it immediately reminded me of her. I have always liked the glow in Nany Merlin’s skins and I also like the delicate bone structure, particularly along the bridge of the nose and brow ridges. This skin is more than up to her standard, with it’s beautifully shaped nose and soft texture.
