The N’dali (via A Passion for Virtual Fashion)

Writing from Battle Creek, Michigan:

I’ve had to focus resources on other things besides the computer for a while, so my tower isn’t repaired yet.  (I hope I get it repaired in time to pay my rents in world!)  Once again I’m borrowing one of the family netbooks, which can’t run Second Life, to put something up on the blog and keep it alive.

But what I’m putting up is fabulous. Take a look at this encyclopedia entry from Harper Beresford!

The N'dali “The N’dali of the temperate forests and hills of Southern Peninsula of Melanasia are an independent tribe of traders and craftspeople. They are most noted for their fine metalwork and technology in working with exotic creature skins and feathers such as those of the phoenix and dragon.

Travels in Egypt (via It’s Only Fashion)

The 2011 Accessory Fair is going on now in two special sims. When I visited the other night, it was remarkably lag-free, and I found some several interesting things I may write about myself in the near future, though I was mainly looking in vain for some classic Egyptian queen’s crowns and couldn’t find them this time.

For now, though, consider these tasty items that Cajsa Lilliehook of It’s Only Fashion found for herself, along with some wonderful black-background photography!

Stormy Weather

Keeps rainin' all the time....

Don’t know why there’s no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
Keeps raining all the time, the time
Life is bare, gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather, just can’t get my poor self together
I’m weary all the time, the time
So weary all the time

When he went, you went away, the blues walked in and met me
If he stays away, ol’ rocking chair will get me
All I do is pray, the Lord above will let me walk in the sun once more

Can’t go on, everything I had is gone
Stormy weather since my man and I ain’t together
It’s raining all the time

One of the finest singers the Real World has known passed away a few days ago.  Miss Lena Horne had known both sides of the blues, the pain and the delight, in her 92 years.  I think she emerged on the high side at the end.

Her signature song, of course, was “Stormy Weather,” and that’s what I based these photos on.  But if you want to hear the woman herself, just click on play….
