Open Hands

Nobody wants to be the only one that’s left standing
Nobody wants to be the only one to understand
And now I’m seeing the way that you’re leaving without me

Now go on and drift away
The tide can hold you out
Go quiet now
Go sound, go safe
Open hands are hard to hold onto anyway

La Peregrina/The Death Meme

Strawberry Singh brought out a nice morbid theme for her Monday meme this week, so here we go…death.

092514b

 

  1. Do you ever think about dying? How do you expect you’ll die? – I think about it a lot. Life is just one small death after another, after all. Death of people, death of relationships, death of expectation, death of opportunity, death of love. While I hope to die in my sleep some night, I expect that my body will in reality die of kidney failure.
  2. Do you believe in an afterlife? If so, how do you visualize it? I do. I don’t know what it will be like there, but the odds are it will be better than here.
  3. What is your preferred form of apocalypse and why? – I think the most painless would be for the sun to go red giant. That will keep things quick.
  4. How many times have you cheated death so far? – I think maybe death has cheated me.
  5. Which fictional villain would you be okay being killed by? – If I have a choice, I would like it to be La Peregrina from Alejandro Casona’s La dama del alba. It ain’t easy being death, but she is compassionate about it.
  6. If you’re murdered, do you stay and haunt the culprits forever or do you give up that opportunity to leave and go to heaven/hell/Cancun? – Somehow I think that after I am dead I am not going to care too much about what the living are doing. So I’ll go somewhere. Sometime.
  7. Will you have done everything you have wanted by the time you die? – Most assuredly not.

    My apologies about the late response. I’ve had a crazy 2014 and now I’m trying to read all the memes I missed throughout the year before it ends. Now you have me worried that the sun will go all red giant and kill us all lol! Thank you so much for participating and I hope you have a wonderful new year! <3

You would think with as long as it took me to get into Collabor88 I might have blogged a bit more of what I found when I actually got there. Fortunately the 8th-of-the-month traffic (let’s face it…the whole first week of Collabor88 is like L.A. at rush hour) has died down, and I can showcase some of the wonderful designs available this month…and my readers might actually be able to get there to find them.

I chose a (sort-of) men’s style from Tableau Vivant today because I love the smooth textures and needed something that would show off the stunning headdress from Glam Affair. Did I say stunning? I meant S.T.U.N.N.I.N.G.

Maxi Gossamer continues to provide consistently high-quality jewelry…this month Maxi branched out into jewelry that is a bit more formal in style. I look forward to seeing what else she creates in this vein.

As soon as The Secret Affair clears out a bit I will be back there for more cool stuff, but for today, the gorgeous Lady of Westeros Game of Thrones gown from Junbug is at the top of the list. (be prepared to get a lot of chest pieces before you land one of these in the Junbug gacha…)

Probably my favorite things so far are the magnificent House signet rings from The Forge. Today I got luck and got House Tyrell and House Targaryen.
