Steppin’ Out   Leave a comment

When I was writing this up, I found not just one quote to use, but two. I’ll title this with Joe Jackson’s song and include the video at the bottom. But following is another sonnet from Harper’s beloved Poetry Magazine archive (which really is a nifty source of material!)

How can I offer you the dull, frayed song
Of love I know? Each word would stumble on
A memory; and I should see a long
Blurred line of faces grimacing upon
A musty curtain of the past …. Ah, no ….
Let me be silent …. Words would only sound
A monotone: a toxic, cloying flow
Of echoes would sift through, and eddy round
My voice, and all the rapture that I feel
Would turn into a harlequin and steal
Away beneath the vivid, measured hum
Of mockery. Ah, dearest, may there come
An ecstasy of stillness in each day,
That you may sense the thoughts I dare not say!

Marion Strobel, untitled sonnet
Poetry (XV:vi) March 1920, p. 316

I love this song, and this video illustrates what we do in Second Life (as I did in my photos above) quite nicely, transforming ourselves for a time into whatever life we want to live, to change away from the humdrum and pains of daily Real Life.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

We continue getting Frosty on the next page.

Tupelo Honey

She’s as sweet as tupelo honey
She’s an angel of the first degree
She’s as sweet as tupelo honey
Just like honey, baby, from the bee

“Tupelo Honey,” written and performed by Van Morrison

Life isn’t all ball gowns and glittering elegance. Sometimes, for some people, their finest, sweetest moments can be on a bright, sunny day, sitting in blue jeans and a soft top instead of waltzing off into the starry sky with your prince. It looks like Maren has found one of those moments here, sitting by a fountain in Second Life’s version of Jackson Square.

Dublin Mardi Gras Primpfest

Conan has many skills ….

I went wandering through Dublin last night, and discovered that I had been gone for quite a while. The owners are revamping the sim again, moving backward (in a sense) to a sort of composite of what was in the old Dublin 1 and 2. (Don’t get yourself into a lather with worry — the Blarney Stone is still there, with all its programming.) And it was a joy to me to find that they had brought back (in a more up-to-date fashion and under a new name) the little hole-in-the-wall barbershop that had so enchanted me in my early days. It’s bigger to a degree, but it’s still down a flight of stairs from the upper area, still with retro posters and paintings and hairstyle photos.

Take a look some time at the “new” Dublin, and hopefully enjoy all the old goodies they’ve brought back, as well as some new ones. Be careful about going into some of the doors, however, as there are some spots that have solid thief doors hanging down a little. You may get your way in; but I was almost trapped inside the local post office. I had to double-click my way out (and discovered that Dublin now has point-to-point teleport disabled).

Lots of Great Swag At New Uber!

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.

London Autumn

Fall is a weird time in Second Life (so is winter, but I digress).  By the nature of the virtual world, nothing changes unless someone changes it for the world; and so we have red maples and ground bushes starting to go into their “autumn cycle” while the ground is still covered with daisies, lavender and other flowers.  Witness this Hyde Park location near Speakers Corner, in one of the several London recreations in world.

New Year’s at Nat’s

New Year's Eve 1

A fast one today, as I’m running a little behind getting ready for work.  But I figured I should kick off the new year with a bit of a celebration piece, and what better way to celebrate than in indulging in a little opulence?  Specifically, pieces from the current round of Uber, which opened on New Year’s Eve with the theme of Opulence.  The dress, shoes, stole and nails you see here all come from event stores.

May your new year be blessed, prosperous, and meaningful for you and yours.
