A mug, a glass, a bottle of light

Rose Red
.
I returned from my journey and instantly noticed the darkness. I traveled west and home is east, the hardest adjustment. In the early morning, getting ready for work, the sun is only now politely parting the clouds to say a small hello. My car and I haven't been useful in the early morning in days, and I worry that our gas tanks are depleted.
.
The journey wasn't bad, but homecoming was best. I've got it wrapped around me like something safe, all the familiar objects and places and smells. It smells of old gumbo, my husband cooked it this past weekend while we were walking in the hills, finding snow. Warm-weather food, a warm place. Stepping off the plane into the thicker air felt welcoming.
.
...Stepping into Second Life also felt welcoming, especially after putting on this group gift dress, and strewing gorgeously colored pumpkins at my feet. I love Halloween, and all of the colors that go with it. Second Life is full of light, making up for the dark days! I've put an alternate styling (with beautiful pieces of jewelry from Ellabella) below, just for fun.
