Waiting…. (Republished with revisions)

Publisher’s note:  As you may know, I originally published this poem, written by me, in September 2011.  Recently, though, I’ve wanted to polish it up a little and take new, less muddy photos to compliment it.  This is my new effort, and I offer it to you, along with a brand-new framing story, for your consideration.  More speech on the details and other aspects afterward….

2014 Mystic Realms Faire

Mystic Realms

Check out the new Mystic Realms Faire, running between October 10 and 26.  There’s lots of goodies to tempt you, including a fantastic new sari from Zaara and a beautiful futuristic gown from [sYs].  I’ve done my shopping already, dashing through yesterday during the bloggers’ preview; I may have a chance Monday to start going through the bags and see how things look.

Around the Fantasy Faire

Some pictures I took while running around this year’s Fantasy Faire — which, according to Daniel Voyager, has pulled in well over L$5.5 million for this year’s American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  You may want to check the SLurls and see if the regions are still up, if you didn’t take the time to tour them before; they were still open yesterday as I tried to finish my own tour.

Some Thoughts On Butterflies

Moss covered paths between scarlet peonies,
Pale jade mountains fill your rustic windows.
I envy you, drunk with flowers,
Butterflies swirling in your dreams.
— Ch’ien Ch’i, translated by Kenneth Rexroth

=====

It is blue-butterfly day here in spring,
And with these sky-flakes down in flurry on flurry
There is more unmixed color on the wing
Than flowers will show for days unless they hurry.

But these are flowers that fly and all but sing:
And now from having ridden out desire
They lie closed over in the wind and cling
Where wheels have freshly sliced the April mire.
— Robert Frost, “Blue-Butterfly Day”

=====

Gray sail against the sky,
Gray butterfly!
Have you a dream for going.
Or are you the blind wind’s blowing?
— Dana Burnet, “A Sail at Twilight”

=====

…Don’t you see

That we are worms, whose insignificance
Lives but to form the angelic butterfly
That flits to judgement naked of defence?
— Dante, The Divine Comedy: Purgatory, Canto X (Sayers translation)

Lady Frost

GasOven produces a winter fashion piece that is sparkling and mystical, like the Snow Queen.  A delightful confection, and I hope you’ll follow through to the rest of her original article, and then comment on it!

Buuuuurrrrrrrr!  It’s getting cold out there!  I was in a watery mood there for a while when it came to images.  Now, I suppose I’m moving on to water in another state.  It’s getting icy around Second Life and I think it’s just gorgeous!  Luckily, there are places like Alirium where it’s always a frosty wonderland!  I recommend it if you’re looking to shoot some beautiful, wintery pictures this season ^^

Second Life imagery has been especially fun for me lately.  I don’t know what it is but lately I’ve been in love with our beautiful, little, digital world.  Can you believe how creative some of our residents are?  It’s fabulous!  Plus, so many sims are changing over to their seasonal appearances.  It all feels so magical!

Speaking of magic, sales are very magical!  Right now The White Armory is having a great sale where many of their gowns are…
