If You forget Me.

025

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine.

Bokeh

002

I’m keeping it simple today and just wanting to show this exclusive original mesh necklace that Bokeh has available at the Jewelry Fair.   The necklace comes in three lengths with black or a precious metal rim options that you can change via menu.  Even though it feels a little odd wearing a sweater when its still super hot in my real world, this fluffy sweater feels just right.

Sometimes there is no turning back…

“Sometimes all you have to do is forget what you feel and remember what you deserve.”

004

Every now and then I’ll have regret over something that I did or didn’t do or something said or not said.  In the last couple of years I’ve taken more of a stance to keep my thoughts to myself not out of fear or the fear of the repercussions. I think it’s a learned behavior and taking on an attitude of trying to maintain the peace — maybe more my peace of mind than anything else.  I can’t control anyone’s actions or behavior either way, though I can control mine.  Being of the stubborn sort I tend to get into that place of becoming resolved and making a decision and there is no turning back.  That doesn’t mean I am inflexible, though more cases than not…  I’ll live with the consequences even if it means heartache and sleepless nights.  In the end it’s all about what is in your best interest.

Enough of my self-analytic babble.

This jewelry that I am wearing today is from [sYs] and it’s got attitude written all over it.  You can find this and much more at the Jewelry Fair that runs until the 28th of September.

Cazimi Designs

I got dinged while out on the grid doing my usual running around.  The guy says “ha.. I knew I remembered your name.”  His name didn’t ring a bell and his avatar wasn’t familiar, so not wanting to be rude I said excuse me? He said my name was memorable and was thinking why do I know …   I cautiously asked, and you know me from?  Turns out I aggressively played his gacha machine at an event.  Go figure!  Guess that’s what happens when you have a name like “Spunknbrains” and you try to get the rare.  I used to get a few smirks back in my early days as a result of my name, especially from Europeans.  It was always a cause for amusement on my end, but no I don’t wish some days I had named myself ‘Mary’.

I’m showing off some other great pieces of jewelry that are available at the Jewelry Fair.  The mesh necklace and earrings are from Cazimi Designs and come with a texture change HUD for metals. There are several different color combinations and there is even a special version that has an Ultimate HUD that gives you many color choices for the pearls, gems and metals. The Suhaila Indian Bangles are also from Cazimi Designs.  The detail and design of both pieces are very well done and will work with casual to even more dressier outfits.

Aracne Pearls…

I tried focusing on playing with the settings and trying new wind lights with this picture. Except my hard drive starts working overtime when I click the button to use shadows, not to mention it also slows me down terribly and makes it harder to take the picture.  Maybe one day I will really hunker down and start to learn all the tools and tricks to using the photo tools that are part of the Firestorm Viewer with hopes for a great shot and not over tax my system.   While I love learning new things I have this thing about having to do too much work in Second Life for something that’s supposed to be just fun.

Though I can’t discount that I really enjoy taking pictures and learning new angles, lighting and even the editing to improve the picture to a desired effect.  It sometimes gives me the urge to begin taking pictures in real life… though it means I will probably have to invest in a new camera.  My over used Nikon D60 isn’t as fast as it once was and I like being able to click without having too much of a delay.

Today I am showing this set of exclusive jewels from Terra d’ombrA, which are one of my favorites of the new releases.  The whole set is just magnificent and I totally loved wearing it with this gorgeous dress from Distorted Dreams.   I’m also trying out a new skin and hair that I found at this round of the Dressing Room.

Splash of Sunshine

Splash of Fall
The Jewelry Fair opens today and I am showing you another couple of great items that will be available.  This metallic mixed gold necklace and these studded shades in silver are fair exclusives from **Cila**.   Normally I create my own scenes for blog pictures, except I didn’t have a scene in mind for what I ended up wearing.  I’m also really out of touch with locations in Second Life.

Recently, we moved our residence to a new region and the new land sat vacant for more than a few days until Draco ordered challenged me to decorate the land and house in two days.  I’m proud to say it only took me a few hours in one day to do the order.  Coughs.   I can’t complain considering that he did the landscaping and also decorated the majority of our last residence and the land was much bigger.  He left me the kitchen.  You think that’s a sign there?

Since it’s nearing the fall season I thought that decorating with that in mind would be sort of fitting. The color scheme was the perfect color combination for what I was wearing, so you get a glimpse of our new home.
