June Light

Your voice, with clear location of June days,
Called me outside the window. You were there,
Light yet composed, as in the just soft stare
Of uncontested summer all things raise
Plainly their seeming into seamless air.

June Light, Richard Wilbur, 1921

Waiting

Dear Mother Nature,

I live in New England. This brings certain expectations that there will be seasons. Those seasonal expectations do NOT include 80-plus degree weather in September. If our winter is the same as last year I am sure I will be bemoaning that when the time comes as well, but for now, Mother Nature, please bring on the autumn that I moved to New England for.

Sincerely yours,

Sweaty Eliza

Flight

Nontroppo Torii released some great hairstyles for men at the Men’s Dept. this week. I love it when men’s hair also works on my girly avi. Today I used one of Bastion Flare’s beautiful dance poses and Glam Affair’s new Sylvia release from this round of Collabor88.

Breathe deep, mine eyes, the frosty saga of eternal suns
From unseen depths and dreams undreamt,
I sing the gleaming cantos of unvanquished space
By thought I embrace the universal
With wings of mind I sail the infinitude
Glory! ’tis the stars which beckon man’s spirit and set our souls adrift!

Cape Hatteras, Hart Crane, 1930

One thought on “Flight

  1. Rudhmellowen

    Such a gorgeous photo Eliza… You’ve really caught the essence of something magical… This has to be my favourite photo of the day today!

Contact

If I (being totally artistically talentless myself) have one gripe about SL content it is the dearth of quality animal props available. I don’t know how many times I have wanted a bird, dog, cat, horse, goat, deer, or whatever in my photos only to find that the options are truly limited, particularly animals that can be posed.

That’s why I used the Breeder’s Choice horse avatar for my photo today. Where are all the SL unicorns? Knowing my unicorn lore, I am well aware that unicorns are NOT horses and bear only the most passing resemblance to them, but alas, horses are what there is to be had in SL.

I took this photo on Sasaya Kayo’s beautiful sim while her charming foxes looked on. Perhaps there is hope for SL animal props after all.

The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

And I don’t mean Christmas. Autumn is my undisputed favorite season, coming as it does after my least favorite season, summer. The color in autumn is simply unbeatable by any other season, and the temperatures are stable without being overly hot or cold. It also usually coincides with the beginning of the school year, which makes me think of setting goals and making new beginnings.

I am so thrilled with the botanical autumn offerings this year. Some of my favorites include Lucian’s Designs, Fiddler’s Green and TeddyJr, along with the prolific and always talented Alex Bader. I am also enjoying the lovely mesh designs from We’re Closed.

I only wish for endless perfect days like this one!

Curio Thistle’s mesh horses are so gorgeous and I feel like they are very underused by me. Dragonfyre Designs uses these horses for saddled riding poses and they were perfect for our ride today.
