    I am noticing this “Stewart” chap appearing with, what is to me an increasing frequency in your posts.

    While your personal outfits remain as always excellent and your photography is of it’s amazingly high standards I have a suggestion.

    You always choose excellent poses and the Purple Pose in this post is no exception. However the proximity of “Stewart” to your lovely self is concerning and my professional advice as an expert photographer is to place the pose all “Stewart is on at approx 2,096 meters from yourself, active depth of field and focus on yourself.

Delirium

Love, the deadliest of all deadly things: It kills you both when you have it and when you don’t.

But that isn’t it, exactly.

The condemner and the condemned. The executioner; the blade; the last-minute reprieve; the gasping breath and the rolling sky above you and the thank you, thank you, thank you, God.

Love: It will kill you and save you, both.

-Lauren Oliver, Delirium

New Year Meme

This meme from Strawberry Singh sounded like a good reflective-type activity for today, so here goes. Thanks, as always, to Bastion for showing up photo-ready to help me out today, although I am a bit miffed that he has a better hat than I do.

  1. How did you spend New Year’s Eve? At home, with my husband. We watched the New Year’s Eve broadcast from Spain, which always gives us new song and film ideas for teaching our Spanish classes.
  2. Did you keep any new years’ resolutions? No. I feel like I am constantly resolved on doing things and being a certain way whether it’s the new year or not.
  3. What was your biggest achievement(s) of the year? In real life, I built and implemented two iPhone games for my Spanish classes. I also presented the games at the national convention for the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages. I know, achievement city right here. In SL, I moved my blog to this new domain. It was a big step, but I am glad I did it.
  4. What was the best thing you bought? In real life, my Alienware computer. I get lots of sidelong looks and questions about being a gamer, but I really love having a powerful computer. I have been creating a lot more visual content for my work and my new machine has really made a difference. And for SL it’s a dream. I also upgraded to Dropbox Pro. It literally changed my life. In SL? Probably my Maya tutorials from Leviathan Flux. I haven’t made anything yet, but I am learning so much!
  5. What do you wish you’d done more of? In real life, I wish I had been able to see more of my family. I am going to make that happen more this year—gasoline prices be darned.
    In SL, I wish I had talked to more people and gone more places. I enjoy the social aspect of SL but tend to hang out on my own rather than intrude in social spheres.
  6. What do you wish you’d done less of? In real life, not much. I worked a lot and played a lot and plan to do more of the same this year. I do wish I cared less about unimportant things. In SL, I wish I had not let my investments become unbalanced. I am working on that.
  7. What was your favorite movie you watched this year? There were two that I previewed for my Spanish Language and Culture class. One is called El Sueño de Iván and the other is called A Better Life. The first is delightful and sweet and the second is heartbreakingly sad. Incidentally, they both star the wonderful Damián Bichir.
  8. What did you do on your birthday this year? In real life, I sang the Verdi Requiem with the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood. It’s probably one of the more wonderful things I’ve done in life, period. In SL, I don’t remember.
  9. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned. You can climb every mountain, you can ford every stream. You can follow all the rainbows, but it’s no guarantee that you’ll find your dream. I try to forget that from time to time, though.
  10. What does 2014 hold for you? In RL I don’t know but I will be satisfied with health and employment. In SL I hope to learn to do basic modeling and improve my photography.

    Oh you got me intrigued by the Maya classes, I might have to look them up. Not that I am looking to getting into designing, but it may be fun to learn something completely new like that.

    Sounds like you had a pretty eventful and wonderful 2013, hope you get the same and even more in 2014. Thanks for participating. <3

Te despertaré

At times we would all love to just go to sleep and wake up when all storms are over, all problems resolved, and all pain is healed. I know I would. People do this in SL all the time; leaving for periods of time when painful things happen, love is not requited or friendships are broken. But although the desire to avoid pain and heartache is natural, it takes more strength to be the one who stays awake, who deals with heartache or the friend who doesn’t care as much about you as you do about him or her, or the betrayal by someone you love. This applies to any life in which one is emotionally invested.

Pastora Soler was a guest on the New Year’s Eve program on TVE last night and she has a new single out that deals with this very thing. After watching her video, full of flowing dresses and locks, I decided to run around my friend’s winter sim to see if I could be that flowing and romantic. I am wearing considerably more clothes than she does in her video, most notably my warm sweater dress from Gabriel and beautiful new jewelry from Maxi Gossamer.

What do you think? Am I music-video ready? You can check out Pastora’s video below the credits.

One of Truth Hawk’s new releases this week, the beautiful Ainsley style, is probably going to be one of my all-time favorites. I also have to mention the loveliness that is Izzie Button’s new Lila skin.

May 2014 be wonderful for you and all your loved ones.

Peace

The Peace on Earth Hunt #6 is under way and there are some wonderful gifts to be found. This lovely skybox is the hunt gift from Silent Woods, and the beautiful Jacqualicious Christmas tree adds a nice touch. My favorite things yet though are the divine western boots from Pelleteria Morrisey. Check out the Peace on Earth hunt website for more information! My pal Bastion helped me out with this photo and he is sporting some great items from the Men’s Dept.

Damiani

Pompeja Rossini’s latest skin is called Damiani  and I’m a big fan:

040612c

I really love a couple of things about this skin—first of all, that face! Trust me as the wife of a husband whose beard line is prominent even when clean shaven, this is a very realistic look.  I also really like the more subtle muscle definition on the arms and legs. Too often in SL male skins can be less like normal guys and more like Arnold Schwarzenegger in his Mr. Universe days.

040612d

If clean shaven isn’t your style, though, there are many options for Damiani.
