My downstairs neighbor is up to something! I don’t know what but it involves implements of sonic torture — hammers, electric drills and power saws. I tried to distract myself with television and music, but if noise is what’s bothering you, more noise will not cancel it out. It just creates a cacophonous clash where the beauty of the music and the thread of the story are lost. I held my cat for awhile, his upper body resting on my shoulder sheltering one ear with the comfort of his purring, but the electric drill sent him scurrying to hide in the closet. I finally decided to log into Second Life® and shoot some pictures. I had picked up this gorgeous leather dress from MichaMi at The Dressing Room and needed to get it in the can. Because I wanted to shoot it with a coat, I wanted to find a fall sim and checked out Izzie’s – and that is where the magic happened.
I found a peaceful meadow with a brook running through it, a bit of wetlands that had its own orchestra complete with bullfrogs. I cannot explain it but the quiet sim with the comforting croaks of frogs reminded me of home and the soft susurration of the wind in the meadows, the crickets, the frogs, the occasional laugh of the loons. Most of the sounds were from my memories of growing up on a lake in the woods, but such is the power of memory that in the midst of my neighbor’s racket, I found a place of quietude. If you need such a balm, I highly recommend Izzie’s sim. The landscaping is calming, with discipline that counters the impulse to overdo. It’s beautiful, as you can see from the pictures, but it’s also peaceful.
The boots I am wearing are from Charlie. Each pair of mesh boots has three colors that can be changed by clicking the heel. This is a small brand with few offerings, but everything produced is of stellar quality.
My jewelry is the newest release from Kunglers Extra – the leaders in creating bold, modern jewelry inspired by organic themes. The inspiration this time seems to come from old-fashioned lanterns. This comes in copper, silver and gold. I am wearing the copper set. The hair is Truth’s Briony with which I have fallen in love. I love the relaxed, loose updos that still have a formal shape to them.
The skin is Shyla – Belleza’s new release. It comes with eyebrow tattoo layers so I could opt for red brows. I also added one of the lipstick tattoos, a soft, rich shade of wine.
