Shine Like Water   Leave a comment

It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen.

J. R. R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

A bad link led me to this piece of parkland where a club should have been. The club is no more, but the island remains, lovingly landscaped now by someone, set with statues and a wandering path. I stayed long enough to shoot a few photos, but I won’t share the landmark, as I think it’s private property, and I don’t want my mistake to be bringing lots of people descending on the homeowner’s little paradise.

I had a party in mind, some rock ‘n roll for the night, and so I climbed into a brand new pantsuit by Rapture. (Members of the store group are getting a discount for a while, so check it out soon!) It’s available in quite a few colors, but a party deserves some shine, and Rapture’s materials treatment certainly supplies that here. This jump suit shines as much as afternoon sun off the water of a lake or river ….

Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can’t go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.

Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad

On a Lazy River

On a Lazy River

This summer’s hot, and so I’m taking a break in one of the rivers that wends through my property.  I shouldn’t have really done it — but, of course, this is virtuality, and so I can wear my shoes into a wet situation like this and not worry about ruining them.

And nice shoes they are, too.  New mesh flat sandals from Zaara, available in a variety of colors and with jeweled and beaded upper straps, they make a pair of SLink low/flat feet very attractive indeed.  Go not (yet) to Zaara’s store for these, though; she’s selling them through a store shack at Summerfest ’14, which is running currently in Pacific Isle region.  This extravaganza is busy right now, so you may need a few tries to get in.  She’s selling them along with a nice one-piece swimsuit.  (Not the one I’m wearing here, obviously; this is the bikini — and whoa, what a bikini! — sold by R2 at this month’s Collarbor88, and I thank Connie Arida for turning me on to this one!)
