Sunshine

It has been a week of very good news for those of us who wear mesh bodies. The Belleza update was particularly exciting for me, since it is my personal favorite, but I am also excited about The Mesh Project making their dev kit available to all. It will be interesting to see what possibilities this will bring to SL fashion. The Mesh Body Addict’s Fair is in full swing and rumor has it that the crowds have diminished enough that you can actually tp in now without too much trouble. A more comprehensive description of the fair can be found on the Mesh Body Addict’s website, but one of my favorite designs is the Sunshine outfit from Gizza with it’s tiny pompom edging and boho feel.

Noemi

I finally admitted to a friend recently that I wear my mesh head mainly out of laziness because there’s not so much to fix in Photoshop. There! My dirty secret is out! Judge me! Fortunately for me, Monicuzza Babenco released the beautiful Noemi skin applier for both the Logo and the Lelutka mesh heads this month at Shiny Shabby. Also at Shiny Shabby are Luna Jubilee’s latest single poses, which were perfect for today’s shots. The Neve team has also been hard at work and released several designs this week that hint at autumn weather and the end of summer heat.

This week I am headed up to the high mountains for my yearly disconnect with all things technology. It’s a forty-five minute drive to anywhere with a signal. Now, I like to be connected, I like to be in touch. But sometimes it is nice to just take yourself out of the loop and enjoy having face to face conversations, and sit and look at mountains and water and trees, and forget about the race that 21st-century life has become. Being away from technology for a few days also gives me an appreciation for the wonderful things technology does for us. Let’s face it, as nice as camping is, no one wants to live like that long-term anymore. So for me it’s all about appreciating the best of both sides.  I went in search of the most electro-tecno sim I could find today and found it in INSLICO, an urban-futuristic city build.

Sands Leavitt released the sleek and beautiful Portia skirt at Shiny Shabby this week and it was the perfect fit for my outfit. I am so impressed with the quality of Sands’ work and look forward to seeing what he does next.

Portable

I took piano lessons for almost fifteen years when I was growing up.  One would think that this would make me a virtuoso of sorts, but the truth is that I am quite average, mostly playing for church meetings or accompanying singers or as a backup pianist for my ukulele-obsessed husband, who likes to have ukulele/piano jam sessions. Yeah. Nerds. So anyway, if there is something I really want to play, I can usually find a way to play it given enough time. Obviously not Rachmaninoff, but you know. Regular things. The mathematical and physical perfection of music performed well is to me one of the most magical things in life.

The piano is a wonderful instrument, but one thing a piano definitely isn’t is portable. And keyboards are just not musically acceptable. Note: piano snob. So last year I started taking guitar lessons, and made my teacher start pulling his hair out when he asked me what kind of music I wanted to play on the guitar. “Whatever I feel like playing”, I told him. So he makes me play scales all the day long. It’s not elegant or attractive, and my husband’s noise-cancelling earphones have saved our marriage when he just can’t listen to the scales any longer, but this is something that takes time. Maybe fifteen years’ time. One day, though, I will be able to walk down a street like Eliza with her instrument in its cool case from the Body Factory, knowing that wherever it is I am headed, I carry the magic with me.

I snapped this picture of my friend Steel one night at the Attic. I always look forward to what he’s going to be wearing and can always count on him throwing down something interesting…so you may be seeing more of him.

It is not true, not true that we come to live on earth.
We merely come to sleep,
We were merely born to dream.

-Nahuatl poem, fragment

To those of you celebrating your dead on this day, may your memories of your loved ones bring you comfort, joy and remembered love.

Take Me Places

It’s been awhile since I blogged one of Luna Jubilee’s couple poses, and I am always struck by the emotional connection implicit in her designs. This one is called Take Me Places and is available for a few more days at the Men’s Dept. Thanks to Barely for helping with the pose today.
