Now there’s no sense in seeing
The colours of the morning
Can’t hold the clouds at bay
Chase them all away,
Chase them all away
And I’m frozen still
Unspoken still
Remembering something I forgot,
Something I forgot

The Saddest Song I’ve Got–Annie Lennox



So when I was trying to find an outfit that would go with Ikon Innovia’s black eyes I just kept going back and looking at how nice they are. So today they get their own post. Black is a tough color for eyes, a lot of light can be lost in them, but these have shine and reflection and still manage to draw you right in.

Today the black got me thinking about the tough times in life (be they RL or SL) and the feelings many of us experience. If you don’t then I am very happy for you and hope you never do!  For those of you who have passed through some hard times, you know the feelings I am talking about—the conviction that nothing can ever be beautiful or happy again, that there’s nothing left to look forward to, or the awful, sucking emotional or physical pain that you are sure you are never going to be able to endure, although somehow you do. Facial expression is extremely difficult to capture in SL—there are a whole lot of serene countenances all around us all the time, but emotions run rampant, believe you me. The new Demanding shape by Mimosa Devin helped me capture a bit of sadness and supplication. Also of assistance was Photoshop, although any of you photoshoppers out there can undoubtedly  tell how big an expert I am not at using this tool. It was interesting to try the sad experiment with my avatar—maybe next time I will go for happy!

52 Weeks of Color: Eggplant

Sunrise, sunset,
Swiftly flow the days.
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers,
Blossoming even as we gaze.

Sunrise, sunset,
Swiftly fly the years,
One season following another,
Laden with happiness and tears

-Fiddler On the Roof


It’s pretty obvious that I am obsessed with Ikon Innovia’s line of eyes—it’s been difficult to wear anything else since they were released. I was skeptical about this color offering—who really has purple eyes, right? But for this week’s color challenge they are perfect and very aptly named, with the purplish blue combination invoking beautiful morning skies just before the sun decides he’s going to join us once and for all.  Or, for you color purists, a ripe, glowing eggplant ready to be picked!
