Early Passage

When the barley harvest ends our August
Even if the wind stays just where it is

Interior Axis

An interior axis tilts to north
And whether or not it is measurably there
Created crispness salts the air and mists
Our memories with bonfires and woodsmoke.

Early Passage

And so I’ll take the early passage
Even if the weather turns
Even if the summer holds
A moment more
A fortnight more
Bring down the boat
I’m going home

I’d rather take the early passage
Than stay behind and not belong
Even if the autumn waits
A moment more
A fortnight more
Bring down the boat
I’m going home

Looking back

I heard looking back was for fools
But I do it every year
I heard making these memories
Only brings tears
But I just don’t care

For now the whole world moves beneath my feet
The truth we do not feel when we’re on land
A life always in motion, follow on
From season down to sunset season on
Bring down the boat
I’m going home

Catching Hearts

So much to blog, so little time! The beginning of the month is always a whirlwind, isn’t it? All those great events opening up, finding out what our favourite creators have been up to….

I’m on several time deadlines: my holiday is almost over, and I’m preparing to go back to work on Wednesday, so you may get a few small posts today, because I have such a lot to show you.

Catching Hearts

As it’s February, many events have a Valentine’s Day theme. Whether for or against, there is a preponderance of hearts and red out there this month! I haven’t put Gwyneth in a stunning gown for, oh, at least 12 hours now, and this one from Enfant Terrible is definitely a stunner. It’s at We ❤ Roleplay, the Decimas Gown. The accompanying fur is just called Winter Fur, and if you’re not in to fur, the gown itself comes with a little wrap that you can choose to wear in different colours. You can change the colour of the harness as well via the included HUD. As often, Gwyneth is in skin from Lumae; this is the Aurora applier, only for Lelutka heads, style Loved, in T3, Shell. It’s available at The Coven. These eyes are new from Mesange and available at The Chapter 4; they are called Jasper Eyes. I love Mesange eyes so much that I’ve just begun fat packing them wherever they’re sold. The ease of using the Omega eye appliers is completely addictive and has spoiled me for other eyes. Gwyneth’s hair is, as often, from the hair design powerhouse that is Wasabi Pills, the Happy hair. It’s at The Chapter 4, part of a gacha, and it comes in two great styles. The cheek hearts are a gift from Adam n EveValentine Cheeks. They’re at the Shop Your Heart Out event. At the Fetish Fair, I found these beautiful new ears from Eclipse Art Studio. These are the Elf Dior ears, and they’re quite customisable. I love the feathers, and the grommet-style piercings are really well done. The necklace is also from EA StudioFeathers Dior. Gwyneth’s crown is from B.F (Bitch Factory), called just Crown Gold; I love the deep red gems and how they reflect the red of the dress. From the magical mind of E.V.E come the Frosted Heart and the Floating Hearts and Floating Petals. The Frosted Heart is available at the Shop Your Heart Out event, and the Floating Hearts and Petals are at We ❤ Roleplay. The Chained Orchid in the background is also from E.V.E; it’s at The Chapter 4 in a very nice gacha. And trust me: the ultra rare secret item is amazing!

I was going to write a story to go with this photo and some others I shot at the time, but my head just isn’t in to it right now. We’ll see if I can come up with something more creative by the end of the day, but for now, I hope you enjoy the photograph. And there are so many more pretty things from We ❤ Roleplay to show you, I don’t even know where to continue. I suppose I’ll do my next favourite thing with Gwyneth (after shopping and photoshopping!) and dress her up in cool outfits.
