When Smokey Sings…

When Smoky Sings 2

Debonair lullabies in melodies revealed
In deep despair or lonely nights
He knows just how you feel
The slyest rhymes, the sharpest suits
In miracles made real
Like a bird in flight on a hot sweet night
You know you’re right just to hold her tight
He soothes it right, makes it out of sight
And every thing’s good in the world tonight

When smokey sings, I hear violins
When smokey sings, I forget everything

The Point

 

Calm

You don't know what it's like

With all the freaky madness that goes on this time of the year, especially in sl, it was nice to take a moment out to find a bit of peace and calmness. I went for a walk at one of my favourite sims, Hazardous.  I always find a bit of peacefulness when I visit here.

I am wearing the very stylish but casual Josy outfit from Hypnose.  Josy includes the dress and the shirt tied at the waist. She comes in fits for both Slink and Maitreya mesh bodies.  There is a HUD for both the shirt and the dress, each including 12 different colours, so you can mix and match to your hearts content! You can pick Josy up now at the Hypnose mainstore.

My hair is the latest new release from [monso]. This is called Hwee.  Hwee is available at the current round of Kustom 9. As always with [monso], there are lots of colours to choose from, as usual I’m wearing from the reds pack.  The [monso] My Ribbon Earrings with the very cute and pretty ribbon bows, are the birthday gift for this special round of Kustom9, and they fit with the hair perfectly!

Photobombed By Grim

 

So there I was, walking home after working the graveyard shift, I decided to take a shortcut through the cemetery at Corruption. I could hear footsteps behind me, someone was following me. I thought at first it was the creepy guy from work who had been hounding me for a date, but when I looked back to see, it wasn’t him at all!  Oh no, it was some dude in a cloak holding a scythe, I guess he must have been the cemetery keeper, doing some night time gardening or something. Anyway, being the nice person that I am I turned and said,  ‘Hello Mr, what’s your name?’ I couldn’t really see his face, as it was hidden by his hood, but he mumbled in quite a weird, sinister voice ‘I’m Grim’.  Poor thing, I thought, fancy being so grim all the time! Until it dawned on me that probably was a nickname, because that would be apt I guess, for someone with such a solitary job.  Because I’m always happy to make new friends, I asked him if he’d like me to take a selfie of us, but he just shook his head very slowly. I shrugged, and decided to take some pictures anyway, because, that’s what I do, but the cheeky fella decided it would be a good idea to photobomb my pictures! Some guys are just so weird!

The Point

Wherever You Are Tonight

Where Ever You Are Tonight

Wherever you are tonight
I wish you the best of everything, in the world
And I hope you found
Whatever you were looking for

Yeah and it’s over before you know it
It all goes by so fast
Yeah, the bad nights last forever
And the good nights don’t ever seem to last
And man, we never had the real thing
But sometimes we used to kiss
Back when we didn’t understand
What we were caught up in

Listen

My pose is from YN (Yavanna Nerwende) Poses and as you can see its a single female pose, and it comes as a poseball. This is called ‘On a Sunday Morning’. YN Poses is a fairly new pose store, they don’t have a mainstore inworld but they do have a marketplace store, and as always the link is in the credits. Yavanna makes unique and natural poses for both singles and couples.

Trike Hike

Three is always better than two! Three wheels that is! I’ve thrown my old bicycle away and replaced it with the brand new and oh, so stylish Triciclo from Kraftwork. This stylish tricycle comes in three versions, adult, kids and a decor version too.  Its so easy to ride, a HUD appears when you sit giving you all the options, I found using the arrow keys worked very well. There is a HUD for colour changing giving several different options, and you can change the flag too.  Of course, I just had to keep the British end up by sporting the Union Jack, but there are lots of other flags to choose from. The Triciclo is exclusively available now at the current round of faMESHed.

Triciclo 1

And of course, no modern stylish girl would be out riding this Autumn without a fabulous new hairdo. I’m sporting the Daenerys Hair from [monso] My Hair, which is also exclusive at faMESHed. Daenerys is a fabulous braided and pony tail style, which looks great dressed up or down. There are lots of colour options to choose, I’m wearing from the reds pack.

As Autumn progresses the days are getting colder, there’s a definite nip in the air, so of course socks and boots are a must for any intrepid tricyclist! I’m rocking the look with the Zula boots and socks from MOoH!  These lovely little things are a prize in The BOO! Bunny Hunt, by Evil Bunny Hunts,  which is running until 31st October.

The Gift Of A Friend

The world comes to life
And everything’s bright
From beginning to end
When you have a friend
By your side
That helps you to find
The beauty you are
When you open your heart
And believe in
The gift of a friend

I’m here at the lovely sim North, with my new friend Souz, who I only met just a few days ago, but she very kindly gave up her time to jump on a pose with me. Thank you so much Souz! I took so many different shots, and poor Souz was so patient and lovely. an absolute pleasure to work with, I’m hoping we can do more together, if I haven’t already put her off!

Cae

Once upon a time, there was a mother and a father. Earth as we know it was very different then. It was always green, full of life, and each day was 72˚ with a light breeze and cloudless blue skies. The days were as beautiful as the mother. Time flowed a rate that was neither slow nor fast. Kind of like when you are in a perfectly wonderful moment  and time is neither standing still nor advancing. It was as calm and patient as the father. That was how everyday was in the lives of the mother and father was. As their love for one another grew so did their children which numbered 4.  They had one son and three beautiful daughters. Jack, Summer, Autumn know as  “Cae”(which will be explained later), and Vera.

Jack was the first born son, he was tall, athletic, and had hair as white as snow. His skin was pale but not in a sickly way.  He was fun and was always looking for new jokes and adventures.  Summer was the oldest daughter. She was a blonde slender beauty with skin that was naturally sun kissed and a complexion as clear as those cloudless skies. Vera was the baby and the shortest of all the siblings. She had a pure and gentle spirit that breathed life into those around her. Her smile was subtle, and though she was not as stunning as Summer her beauty was undeniable. But this story is about Autumn and how she became Cae and then became Autumn again.

Cae was born snugly between Summer and Vera and as a result was often overlooked; but not for lack of love from her parents for they loved each of them equally. It was rather a normal result of birth order. Cae was born third and so she was the baby for only short time before Vera came along. Summer and Jack were the oldest brother and sister and therefore were always entrusted with the “adult” responsibilities. Cae did not mind this though. She had a free, wandering spirit and she was perhaps the most unique of all the siblings.

Cae was born with hair. Now most babies are born with hair, but Cae with born with brilliant red hair that that was as long as she was. In fact, it was so long that reached way down passed her toes. As a baby, her parents would swaddle her in the red strands that flowed down from her head. She did not have the clear complexion of her siblings. Her skin was specked with the tiny brown dots that we know as freckles. She was a spunky ambitious girl who spent most of her time gallivanting around the forest while Jack and Summer kept to their responsibilities and Vera tended to her pet rabbits or picked flowers.

By now you are wandering why Autumn was called Cae. It was because of her long hair. Because it was so long she learned to walk a little slower than her other siblings. If her hair was down, she could only take a few steps before becoming tangled up in it and falling. When it was up she would become top heavy and topple over in the same way a baby does whose head is still to big for it’s body. Jack being full of fun began to call her Cae, which means “to fall”. He did not joke with hurtful intentions but in a gentle way that made Autumn now “Cae” smile and try even harder. By the time Cae learned to walk she could already run and even dance. That was the easiest way for her to learn because her hair would trail behind her and her feet were free to move with out becoming tangled.

As the children grew older each one enjoyed different parts of the world. Jack spent most of his time climbing the tallest peaks only to find another just on the horizon. Summer spent her time down on the beach letting the waves lap at her dangling toes. Vera loved the meadows which were full of life and full of flowers. We will get to Cae in just a moment.

The earth loved the children and celebrated their birthdays with lengthy parties. On Jack’s birthday the weather would grow cold and white fluff would cover the ground so Jack could make snowballs and slide down the mountains that he loved so much. As it grew closer to Vera’s birthday the earth would warm and the birds would sing with delight. Summer’s birthday was celebrated with warmth and refreshing breezes. And when it was Cae’s birthday…

Cae spent most of her time making friends with the forest. She would dance with the trees and twirl in the breezes that they made. She knew each tree by name and spoke with them regularly but the trees did not call her Cae.

When she first entered the forest a tall maple asked  “What’s your name dear?”  “They call me Cae” she replied. “Oh no dear, you are much too pretty to be known as fall. What’s your real name?” said the old wise oak. “It’s Autumn” she replied. “Autumn…” Said the trees simultaneously with much admiration. “That’s much more fitting”. And so Cae was known as Autumn by the trees.

After celebrating Summer’s birthday Autumn, once known as “Cae”, would start her trip back to her beloved forest. Her birthday was just around the bend and she could not wait to celebrate. As you can imagine, it was the most festive of all the birthdays and was full of life and color.

The trees on the mountain tops where always the first to see her returning and all but the evergreens would dress up in the most wonderful hues of red, orange, and yellow. Autumn could see them from the distance and it thrilled her heart to no end.  As news of Autumns return spread down to the valley, the other trees would put on their colors and celebrate as well. The party lasted for days and just as the trees on the mountains were the first to start celebrating they were also the first to stop. Their brilliant colors would fall off as their eyes grew heavy and tired.

By the time that Autumns birthday celebration was over all but the evergreens were asleep and it was time to celebrate Jacks birthday again.

And thus, Father Time and Mother Earth made the four seasons. We know Jack as Jack Frost or Old Man Winter, Vera as Primavera or Spring, and Summer as Summer. More importantly we know Cae which we call “Fall” as the more appropriate…Autumn.
