“Black Coffee, Babe!”   1 comment

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.

Dave Barry

These days, it seems, you gotta have something else besides just the coffee — you need a great coffeehouse to serve the brew up. And not just the coffee, but the ever-essential pastries and sandwiches and juices. I suspect (based on my reading; I’m not that old) that anyone who hung out in a Sixties beatnik coffeehouse, and then was dropped into a modern Starbucks, would shriek in horror, and demand that they immediately go back to serving just coffee, right that instant (no, not instant coffee), or she would explain to them the absurdity of all human activity, and let them struggle with the existential shock.

Her Heart is Water   Leave a comment

Her heart is water, its own self its stay.
It will be fog or cloud or haze, or frail
Mists that wander after daylight pale.
It will be all things: the sea’s salty spray
White in the wind, cast fuming on a shore
Stone-desolate; a river’s liquid song;
A fountain wearing jewels for a throng
Of dancing waves; a pool forevermore
Quiet under leaves gold-rimmed, death-black;
A sea-mirror; or, made of sweet love dreaming,
A crystal well; a molten river gleaming
Under hot sun, flame following its track;
Falls rapids; wild water of storm and trouble;
Or, being quit of love, a gay bubble.

James J. Ryan, “Her Heart is Water.” Poetry Magazine vol. 33, no. 5 (February 1929), p. 240.

Salt Water Sunset   3 comments

… Soon it got dusk, a grapy dusk, a purple dusk over tangerine groves and long melon fields; the sun the color of pressed grapes, slashed with burgandy red, the fields the color of love and Spanish mysteries ….

Jack Kerouac, On the Road

… The sun is setting in a burnt orange sky; the cliffs are black silhouettes; the sea, liquid silver ….

Laura Treacy Bentley, The Silver Tattoo

… Bright colours in the west, giant butterflies dancing as night crept like a cripple toward the east ….

Roberto Bolaño, 2666

Teleport to Salt Water

Lots of Great Swag At New Uber!   Leave a comment

The others have clued me into the promotion blogs, telling the goodies that are coming out for sale at the various creator events around Second Life. I just stumbled into this one today, and the pictures say this new round of Uber is going to be fantastic! There’s lots of goodies to drool over, including quite a few separates that you can try mixing/matching.

I don’t know if Harper wants to try all of us doing our choices from the selection available. But I’m already saving up the cash to buy some of this, and you’ll want to as well.

Bay City Morning   Leave a comment

I can tell you this, because I live just across the state, only maybe four counties away from the real-world Bay City — it don’t look this good right now. Freezing rain, snow, winds, and the temperature’s taking a plummet. It comes close to tempting me to take on Diana’s attitude about sunny skies. Not even the fur shrug I’ve got on would help much, and anyone who wears a mini in Michigan in January really should have their head examined.

Sheer Repetition   1 comment

My first post — alright, we call ’em articles on this blog — and Harper asked me to help her fix something she missed.

Well, it wasn’t really obvious, I’ll say that. Harper stumbled across the dress under the coat I’m wearing when she went over a sales blog, and found it listed in a different location from the coat. Turns out they’re part of a set, really, but at two different sales. She asked me to model the proper set, if I was interested, and I said sure.

And it’s a lovely combination; the colors can be changed around to match or clash as you want with the HUDs, and you can have the metallic feathers either above or below, or both! Then there’s the dress …. I’d really encourage you to wear the coat, and some pantyhose under the dress, just as a precaution, because this dress is somehow on the sheer side. It still rocks, though; just revealing enough to make a noob like me cautious, but fantastically nice anyway.
