Edna St. Vincent Millay was not thinking of textiles when she wrote, “I will touch a hundred flowers and not pick one,” but nonetheless, when I put on this dress from NOIR for Collabor88, I immediately thought of her poem, “Afternoon on a Hill” perhaps because of that line, but also perhaps because it describes so well, the joy and contentment a person can find in nature.
I will be the gladdest thing Under the sun! I will touch a hundred flowers And not pick one.
I will look at cliffs and clouds With quiet eyes, Watch the wind bow down the grass, And the grass rise.

There are a handful of people in SL that’ve been around forever and my friend Eb is one of them. He came over to visit, and we gossiped about his new loves and what’s going on in his SL.
I gotta get some couches with friends hanging out poses because I was cycling through poses and they were all way too “I don’t like you like that” for us to chill and talk. It was amusing to chill and talk about other women though, in what looked like wildly romantic poses, but that’s just not us.
He’s my second oldest friend still on the grid and it was fun to chill with him. And now I’m all caught up on his romantic life!
