A Time to Reflect!

A Time to Reflect!

I came across some writings of mine from when I was struggling in my twenties! I want to share a little snippet with you to show, that even through dark and bad times, there is hope!

Through the years I have been trapped,
Between sadness and cowardice.
Do I live with myself as I am,
Or do what I want to most?

Though everyone says there is goodness ahead,
I can only see black.
Just give me a sign that there’s better somewhere,
Then I will still my own hand!

The date I wrote that was February 13, 1991 and it amazes me that those words came from me! I spent so much time immobilized by depression when I was younger, and those days can never be regained! Thankfully, I hit the bottom……..and survived, to come back stronger, and happier than ever before!

So, let’s take a look at this Victorian-Steampunky look I’ve got going on! I’ll start with the Boots! The Cassey Steampunk Boots are from GeMyles Couture and are the hunt gift for the Walk a Mile in My Shoes Hunt! The 10L$ price tag is a steal for these boots! They’re beautifully detailed and would look great with any look! You can find all the slurls and hints on the WAMIMSH blog! The hunt runs until the end of the month!

The Steamcraft Top & Skirt are from ::drbc::. It’s a dark Victorian style that makes for a dark and moody feel! I found it on Market Place and it comes in four sizes plus a fitmesh option, but I’ve put it on my Maitreya Lara mesh body with no problems at all, using the Maitreya alphas! There’s also a necklace included in the outfit(not seen here)!

Here’s the close up I promised earlier of the Make a Wish nail appliers from Dark Passions-Koffin Nails!. The HUD contains nine colours and you can purchase SLink, Belleza and Maitreya compatible HUDs separately!

The Monocle 201 Eyeglass is from [Since 1975]! It comes with black, gold or silver options and can bring a sinister look to anyone!

I follow Pixel Box on Twitter and when I saw the Lady Crow Hat on for an astounding 50L$, I had to get it! For everything steampunk, Pixel Box is where you need to be!

The Jewel, bare skin in Peach tone is from Lumae!

Poses by -slouch-poses, but no longer available!

I dropped in at Vernian Sea Lighthouse for these pictures!
