Down by the water


It was dusk…or maybe it was dawn…I don’t really remember. Took a walk down by the water, just to think, and breathe. So beautiful there, with the soft light drifting through the trees. I could almost smell the grass and hear the gentle lap of water from our little lake on a breezy day in the summertime.  For a moment, it felt like recaptured perfection.

What I was wearing…


I don’t know if this happens to everyone, or just women, or just me, but certain outfits and/or items of clothing remain inextricably linked to memories of significant events. For example, there’s a particular black lacy item in my lingerie drawer that I no longer wear, and yet am unable to discard. I wore it one special day, and every time I see it, I have to catch my breath as memories of that day come flooding back. I remember the other things I wore that day too. And how I almost didn’t want to wash them because they’d picked up his scent: subtle cologne, and sea air and something indefinably him.

Today was significant too, though for other reasons. And this is what I was wearing today.

Sense 2 — New from N-Core


Another quick Shoe Fair post, because I simply had to display these lovely new shoes from N-core!  The reptile ones, which I’m wearing here, are a Shoe Fair exclusive; 100% of the sales of this item will be donated to Soles4Soles, so if you were on the fence about spending your hard-earned lindens on another pair of shoes, know that you will be doing so in a good cause.  These lovely little things come with a hud for adjusting skin color, and choosing your nail polish (gloss or no-gloss) as well as allowing you to select from a variety of colors for sole, buckle, logo, etc.  With all of these new shoes, I really have no excuse not to go dancing!   (Close-up below the credits.)

City Girl

City Girl Interior

And when it’s all over, you get to go home. For me that means here: the city. Where I can get lost in the comforting frenzy of crowds and noise and lights. On the streets, we avoid each other’s eyes, having long ago learned the pedestrian dance — the quick step and hop, feint and avoid — that lets us get where we’re going quickly despite the masses of people between here and there. Finally home, you allow your breath to slow and deepen. Time to think about the day, and about what you want, and what you might possibly do next. But no decisions tonight. Just reflection and calm, and later, you hope, there will be sleep.

Fox at Dusk

Winter Fox

There’s something so beautiful about the light at dusk, when the sun has almost set, and a shimmering moon is getting ready to rise. In the movies, they call it magic hour, because it turns everything beautiful. Of course, this fabulous jacket I found at Mimikri the other day did not need any help; that lovely fox* collar and trim is beautiful at any time of day or night.

Delicious! (52 Weeks of Color Challenge — Plum)

Ocean in Plum

I love plum and I love plums.
 Can’t even think about plums without thinking about this poem,
 which I also love:

This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
