#83 New look Memory – raw

You don’t know this new me;

I put back my pieces,

differently.                                                                                              @HighPoetsSociety

We can do this every day in Second Life – BUT I don’t.

I change my avie a little, to fit outfits or to achieve a certain ‘costume’, but big changes I only make maybe once a year, or less. I need to feel like me in my avie.

This time the change is into a mesh head, which you would think is no big deal – they have been around so long now that the next step – Bento- is already here. I have joined the ranks of folk who appear as detached floating parts before assembling into something resembling human form.  It has felt like a big step for me – but strangely many of my friends didn’t even notice!

These photos were quickly shot in Coastal Afternoon WL setting and cropped – to send in for a casting that I’d left till the last minute.

#81 The last of the evening sun

I’m not one of those people who wakes up and thinks, ‘Bring on the day!’ I have to have about 7 pints of coffee before I’m even remotely awake. But I love the golden hour in the evening, as hokey as that sounds. Just as the sun is about to set and you get those lovely shadows and everything looks gold and yellow.    Stacy London

Last sun

It is wonderful to lean back against the warm bricks in the evening sun soaking in the soft healing ambiance.

In Second Life wonderful poses help express the feeling – these poses from  – IE Wall to Wall V1 & V2, by Kay Weston – from the recent Alchemy event – are now instore at Image Essentials
