“I am the shore and the ocean,
awaiting myself on both sides.
always arriving in the same place.” ― Dejan Stojanovic, The Shape
Yesterday was a hard day for me. My mind was occupied with thoughts of friends in extremis, whose difficulties and hardships I cannot lighten. It was also the second anniversary of Squinternet’s death and I still miss her open-hearted friendship and humor. I guess in Second Life, as in my my first, when feeling sad and ineffective, I head for the water for new energy. Whether I find myself lakeside or on the shore of the sea or an ocean, there is something about the inexorable sound of the waves that comforts me. No matter what, the waves will continue, an infinite sound loop that I find comforting.
I may have felt sad on the inside, but I looked anything but on the outside. I was wearing this indecently sexy new swimsuit from Liziaah. It comes in five colors. I chose the Aqua, as you can see. The folder comes with all the standard sizes plus one made to fit Slink Physique, which I am wearing. I love the marine inspired embellishments that make me think this is the sort of swimsuit that Diane de Poitiers might have worn if Henry II had been the king of Atlantis instead of France.
I visited The Trace Too which will be closing for a short while on September 15th – just for the change to autumn.
I chose these fabulous sandals from MiaMai. They are very futuristic with their curved heels and electric strips of neon blue color down the back, but they also have these fabulous floral details on the toe strap, bringing the past and future together. They come in light and dark versions and have matching sunglasses as well. They are releases for We Love RolePlay which opened yesterday. .
I added this gorgeous Cinderella necklace from Glam Affair for FaMESHed. It also comes in an pastel rainbow of colors. It is everything romantic and feminine can be. My hair is a new release from TRUTH and Mr. Hawks just had a birthday on Thursday, so Happy Birthday, Mr. H. The hair is beautiful.
My skin is another new release from Glam Affair, new applicators for Lelutka’s mesh heads. These are called Diore and have lovely beauty marks and a simple, clean look. I added some lipstick from JUMO using another applicator and dialed it down in intensity for this light metallic look.
It took a while, but sure enough, I left The Trace Too feeling energized and refreshed. While I could not smell the ozone-rich saltiness of sea air, the sound of waves and the light worked their own subtle magic.
Happy while traveling
