For strength and change

Last night, I finished reading the Reynolds biography of Dorothy L. Sayers, and (no spoilers here, I hope) it ended with her death. She fortuitously wrote her own epitaph, and these words have been comforting me as I face another health issue -- I'm finally scheduled up for a hysterectomy, my real life body put to the knife once more.

"For all things merry, quaint and strange,
For sound and silence, strength and change,
And last, for death, which only gives
Value to every thing that lives."

-- Dorothy L. Sayers

I'd been worrying. Have I left enough behind me? Probably not. You only get back the love you give, and I sometimes fear I haven't given enough. So, universe, I'd better survive this one! I have to stick around to love people more. You win life when you leave people behind who miss you, but who say, "Hey, she lived well."

Anyway. Go get these boots, they're cool.

Here comes your ghost again

Hi. All three of these hairs are by Fashionably Dead for Hair Fair, and I am kind of addicted to that light grey/silver color in the middle there. My real life head is growing it for real, all that silver, and it's impossible to dye quite so easily as my Second Life head. Also the virtual body is much easier to tattoo, damnit.

Anyway, my shorts are see-through and I couldn't figure out how to wear underpants beneath them, so there you have it. Luckily another thing that's far too easy is a Second Life Brazillian.

Pretty jewelry at Secret Affair

I am hiking in a bikini to highlight this jewelry set by Bliensen + MaiTai. It's lovely, the tiara and necklace and earrings. It also perfectly suits this Hair Fair 'do by Calico. Also, this horse is totally judging me for not wearing jeans and hiking boots.

Monkey? Bear? Cat?

Look at this crazy hair from Katat0nik! There are more types than this, and you can channel your own laquer nesting doll by visiting the Okinawa Summer Festival and playing her gacha. I do love how the side buns hair reminds me of the Russian animated monkey/bear thing, Cheburashka. I'm tempted to put on a furry brown coat and blue scarf and spend the rest of my day pretending.

In other news, I hung out in another one of Whole Wheat's builds, this time in a bikini standing next to an unconcerned horse.
