I have loved the stars too dearly

I've Loved the Stars Too Fondly

Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.

Most of us have an atavistic fear of the dark. It makes sense, many animals hunt at night. While we may hunt by day, at night we are the prey. I have always loved the dark, though. During the day, the lake I grew up on would be busy with people fishing and waterskiing. I have had more than one daytime close call with a speed boat driven by reckless people who never think to look for swimmers. I loved to swim in lake at night when the boats were silenced and sleeping, put to bed for fear of being run aground in the narrow lanes between the islands. While there might be a few hundred people on the lake during the day, at night I was often the only one. Of course, it was never quiet. There were the frogs, crickets, owls, timber wolves and best of all, the loons, all competing for lead vocals in the nightly concert.

We were in the country so the moon and stars reflected and refracted in the waves. I would swim toward the ribbon of moonlight even knowing I could never catch it. I suppose it was my own brand of recklessness, swimming alone for hours among the stars, but it was magical, too. Sometimes I pulled out my canoe and paddled so i was lined up with the moon’s reflection and then jumped in, diving down to the touch the bottom of the lake which never got much deeper than forty feet. I liked the deep water where the lake bottom was made of marl rather than muck or clay. Something about swimming in utter blackness captivated me and I never felt afraid.

I've Loved the Stars Too Fondly

I miss living by the lake and going swimming. Lakes in Oregon are glacier fed and not really suitable for swimming. That has not stopped me, but in water that cold, you can’t laze about in the water and drift. You can’t lay back and let yourself sink into the inky water and pretend you are floating among the stars.

Of course, standing on Kalopsia’s broken floor is not exactly sinking into inky depths either, and I am standing, now swimming, but I am eagerly waiting for sun to set and for the evening chorus to begin. I am with cranes instead of loons and they are paper (from DDD for Collabor88), so they will be unaccountably quiet. If they could speak, however, they would rave about my adorable dress from ur.favorite.one (u.f.o.) that is at Collabor88 this month.

Besom is new to me, but I love their hair textures and this particular hairstyle that was released at Collabor88.
I've Loved the Stars Too Fondly
Lelutka has released two new sets of eyelashes, each set with three options in length. These are the short ones! They eyes are brand new from PXL Creations. I am pretty sure I see creator Hart Larsson reflected in those pupils.
I've Loved the Stars Too Fondly
These shoes are from Breathe for Collabor88 and work with Slink, Maitreya and Belleza. Lots of shoes only fit two of these three standards, so it is nice to find someone making for all three.

The skin is from Glam Affair, the America tone using the Avril applier and some Adam & Eve shadow. Remember, you can mix and match among appliers to get individual and unique looks.

Through the Stars, Carried by the Books…

Previously posted @ Rudh’s Random Ramblings.

The Royal Visit is over… HellBone will be dropping my mother off at the airport today, and although it was a fairly unplanned event it has been such a lovely few days – busy but lovely – yet now I am SO worn out that I could use a holiday LOL…
Maybe I will just spend the weekend drifiting off into dreamland, oooh perhaps with a good book?! Or maybe I will let dreamland be some crazy photo session in SL?! Who knows? Right now all I can say is that damn I am TIRED!!! I love having family visit from the UK, but seriously it wears a girl out!!!
Maybe if I just close my eyes right now, I can drift off into dreamland…

Ah well that didn’t take long to accomplish did it? LOL… Dreamland was closer than I realised all I needed to do was grab the strings of the flying books and head to the stars… Flying books are SO the perfect way to travel! If you haven’t tried it, you really should!! Quiet, with a story thrown in for good measure! Get your own set of flying novels from Intrigue Co at the Birthday round of Collabor88 this month – HAPPY BIRTHDAY COLLABOR88!
While we are on the subject of Collabor88 though, it seems that a lot of this dreamland journey passes through what we should refer to as a Collabor88 phase!
As I was pulled through the keke and Half-Deer stars, my Dreamy Dress – from Pixicat – became cosmic, I had to point my toes to avoid my Reign slippers from slipping of my feet. Hearing a noise in the stars beside me, my gaze fell upon a rather strange looking cloud… Did that cloud just blink at me?! Strange how much it looks like a kitten, a little MishMish Cloudie kitten!
I must be having a moment, perhaps I should stop drinking coffee or maybe there was something in the dinner last night that didn’t agree with me, or maybe it was the strange and ephemeral glow of the new jewel that was crafted by the wizard of jewellery that is Maxi Gossamer. I wonder what kind of spells it contains?
Can you tell that I’m tired, my mind wanders off into it’s own little fantasies… My sparkly imageination takes over and I’m off to another world… I wonder where I will land?!

Imagine darkness, peppered with tiny pinpoints of light as far as the eye can see, to be truly alone, alone with your thoughts and lost in the dance. Your legs propelling you through the air, your arms sliding through the currents of  wind like a hot knife through butter with every movement. Your body twisting and turning, stretching and contracting to the steady beat of your heart. This, to some, is heaven.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars

This week was a twice in a blue moon week! As I have several special gifts to show you, two of which are from “Moons”.

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [1]

Your first stop will be at PurpleMoon Creations to pick up this stunning gown. The group is 50L to join but so worth it considering that the gifts (like this gown with its gorgeous detailing around the neck) are stunning and free once you join. This gown also includes glove appliers for Slink Physique and Omega as well, and not only the standard fitted mesh sizes but also a fitted mesh dress too!

My next “Moon” was Moon Hair where I got lucky with the Lucky Letter Boards as my letter came up! My gorgeous hair (called Spit at the Stars) is on the boards there at present in the back room. The Boards require the group which is 100L to join, but again, its a group well worth joining. Not only do you get access to the Lucky Letter boards, but also to many lovely present and past gifts which are setting on the counter in the Main room. Lots of beautiful new hairs for you! This Lucky Letter Board hair was in Naturals 1 and it is snazzy!

Two Moons and Spitting at the Stars [2]

For a look this good I needed some terrific jewelry, which I was able to find over at Lazuri. There are some items out that require the group tag to pick up, but if you look off to the left of those, this Perlline Necklace Set is completely FREE – no group required – and color change too! There is a matching set of earrings too (they are hidden under my hair) and the earrings are just as pretty.

If you get the chance, take time to visit PixelArt Photogardens where I took these pictures. The scenery is stunning!

See you next Sunday!

Are We All Lost Stars

“Every one of us is, in the cosmic perspective, precious. If a human disagrees with you, let him live. In a hundred billion galaxies, you will not find another.” ~ Carl Sagan

20039825048_a8c5536277_o

I am often so humbled by my smallness in this universe. Do you ever feel that way? Often we are so busy in our lives rushing and going and then coming back again that we don’t take the moment to lay back and just stare at the vastness of the stars in the skies. Carl Sagan said it best when he said, “Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” Yet we so oft choose to believe we are the center of the universe, a singular thought that tends to limit our full possibility, declining our potential. Well, I don’t reckon I know how I got here from the quote up there, but, well, it’s written so there it is. Perhaps it’s just something to ponder whilst taking out the trash today.
