Golden

November has always been a month that I like. November is when the leaves go dark yellow and then fall to the ground in golden pools. They then need to be raked, but if there were ever a plug for apartment living, it’s the freedom from raking. Mina Nakamura recently released her Anika hair, and it is my all time favorite hairstyle in SL. I have been wearing it for weeks.

Last Days

School has started, and the hot weather has almost imperceptibly started to take a turn downwards. For me that cannot occur soon enough, but it is also a time of wistful longing of all that flexible time in the summer when I can go to the bathroom whenever I want and days where my dog doesn’t look at me reproachfully every morning when I leave for work.

Under the Stars

When I was little, our neighborhood would have movies in the park sometimes at night, and they would throw a sheet over a line and project a movie for all the families to come and watch together. It was fun, even if I did fall asleep most of the time before the movie was over. It was usually a film like “The Love Bug” or “The Absent Minded Professor,”or some other family-friendly title. Hanstrid Inshan released the Under the Summer Stars outdoor movie set at The Liaison Collaborative this month and it reminded me of those times. I threw up a scene from one of the greatest espionage stories of all time, “Smiley’s People”, in honor of my dad, who somehow managed to not murder us all as we bemoaned his TV choices when we were little. Smiley’s People (with Alec Guinness, of course) was one of his favorites, and now it’s also one of mine. Thanks to Stewart for helping with the photo today and shouting out George Smiley quotes now and then to keep me on task.

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.

Calma

Calma
para esperar el día
y para entretejer los sueños
calma para explicar
lo inexplicable
el porqué de un te quiero
calma, calma.

Summer

It is time for short sleeves and open-toed shoes again, and water that won’t quite turn your foot into an ice cube when you dip your toe in. And the water temperature will only get better. For today’s photo I chose Steffi Villota’s gorgeous Gulia skin, framed by Sabina Gully’s soft curls. Both are new releases and are available at their main stores.
