Staring at the Eiffel Tower

Wow, has it been that long since I posted? No excuses for you, other than the usual “been so busy in first life” kinda sorta thing. Not that I haven’t been in SL. I must have bought and created well over a hundred outfits and spent thousands of lindens doing it since that last time. That, and the occasional dancing and hanging out with friends on Sunday nights at Z&A.

So anyways, here is a snapshot of me taken by a friend, while I was on the Champs Elysees.  Soyez bien mes lovlies!

Le seul vrai langage au monde est un baiser.

Out of darkness, light

I bought the Phyllidas Gown from Enfant Terrible and was just playing around with the lighting on my home parcel, when I realized how bizarre and sort of trippy that the sun setting, lighting and depth of field settings were making everything look. But the depth-of-field effects, unfortunately, do not show up when I download the images to my ancient PC. Regardless, here are the results of my latest effort at shooting in Firestorm with my out of date hardware!

Out of many, one.

How I spent my winter vacation

I love the winter. I love snow, and being put into a mesmerized trance when everything is frozen. Having said that, I appreciate a change of scenery like anybody else does! So for a little break from the cold, I visited Salt Water recently. A gorgeous place!

Catch a wave, you’ll be sittin’ on top of the world.

Lake effect

My Second Life homestead is almost always a winter home, with snow covered mountains in the distance, surrounded by an icy cold lake. Often, I just sit and meditate, listening to my favorite SL Radio Stream, or nothing at all. I get caught up in the lake, staring at it longingly, thinking about its mystery, and I get lost in its other rippling, mesmerizing effects. I am so drawn to the water; it’s as if I am a part of it, and it’s a part of me. So here I am: a part of it.

If you have love, even plain cold water is sweet. ~ Jung Chang♡

Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge

The wonderful Strawberry Singh added a blog challenge this week, the Second Life Yearbook Smile Challenge. So I went and dusted off my old yearbook, which definitely has seen better times! Our school was too cheap for color photos, lol, so mine is in black and white. Berry had asked in the challenge for us to write a brief note on how we managed to get our avatars to smile. All I did was adjust the mouth slider in “Appearance” mode! 🙂

♡Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart.♡

Spotlight Avoidance

Hello and Happy New Year beautiful avatars! When it comes to blog posts, I have been laying low lately. What have I been up to, you ask? Why dancing, listening to music and partying with my wonderful SL friends, of course! And also a little bit of shopping. I wouldn’t forget to mention that!

♡Speak softly, and carry a big sticky, gooey cherry popsicle wherever you may go!

I’m Back – Sorta

Oh my darlings, it has indeed been quite some time since I posted here. It’s not that I haven’t been in Second Life. I have indeed! But my computer is soooo old and out of date, it crashes a lot. It’s one thing to have to continually log back in to SL after a crash, and yet it’s another to pose, buy clothes, adjust settings, and take and then save screen shots to put into a blog post. My ancient computer is running Windows 7 but it is 32 bit. Next year, I will get a much more powerful PC, and when I do, it will be post city!

Below are a couple of snapshots I took while out exploring. I just love the Flying Platform I got from Soy, at TMD.

♡Be happy and love till it hurts!♡
