Blue is a deeply sneaky color.

“How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

 

How do you know, when you think blue — when you say blue — that you are talking about the same blue as anyone else?

You cannot get a grip on blue.

Blue is the sky, the sea, a god’s eye, a devil’s tail, a birth, a strangulation, a virgin’s cloak, a monkey’s ass. It’s a butterfly, a bird, a spicy joke, the saddest song, the brightest day.

Blue is sly, slick, it slides into the room sideways, a slippery trickster.

This is a story about the color blue, and like blue, there’s nothing true about it. Blue is beauty, not truth. ‘True blue’ is a ruse, a rhyme; it’s there, then it’s not. Blue is a deeply sneaky color.”

What’s Your Runway Like?

Everyone has a different runway of emotions. It’s how long it takes you to break, to change course, to stop whatever it is you’re investing in. That friend whom you question “how long is she going to put up with that?” is still on her runway. She isn’t out of space yet. I think all emotions have them in some way or another, and how we react when we get to the end of that runway is another thing all together. Continue reading

Not By Plato

“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”

I saw this quotation attributed to Plato the other night, ““We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” and thought it did not sound right. I like the idea, though, that it is tragic that people fear the light, which I take as a metaphor for knowledge and truth. It certainly is tragic for our planet when people fear the light that science can shed on the issue. Anyway, I was suspicious of the quote, thinking it sounded too modern and in researching, discovered that there seems to be a cottage industry in fake Plato quotes. It’s amazing and worth checking out for the sheer vastness of it all.

Also worth checking out is the wonderful selection of holographic inspired items from Collabor88. I particularly liked this top from Stories&Co by Flowey. I like that it has the fluidity of color that we would expect without the insistent sheen that is common in most selections. It’s not matte, but it is subdued and I like that very much.

A Solitary Creature

I’ve been a solitary creature for five years. It took adjustment, being alone all the time, finding reasons to stay here on my own. But now I’ve decided to stop being such a solitary creature and I find myself wondering am I even made for this new, more social and engaging side of me. Continue reading

Imagine Me And You…and You and Me

RC-Cluster completes my SL in a way that is sometimes too epic to put into words. How did she know I need to both blow dry my hair and perform while getting ready for my day?  Clearly my day was going to be epic, starting out so well entertained. Continue reading

I Don’t Even Have A Title

It’s Friday in both lives but I’m here and I’ve got balloons and a festive headband and no party. Isn’t it date night or something? I should have some occupation, something to DO this evening. But I don’t. Continue reading
