Through the whispering wood,
hushing fir and oak;
crushed each leaf and froze
but never a word he spoke.
by the shivering sea,
lifting sand and stone;
nipped each limpet silently-
and then moved on.
down the frozen stream,
catching at his breath;
on his lips were icicles,
at his back was death.
Winter has reared it’s ugly head here in the Canadian prairies. There’s nothing quite like the first breath of frozen air, while under the morning stars. It’s a shock to the system to inhale such cold air! I can’t imagine never having experienced it, though! Each morning I’m up early to tend to the animals and make sure all are fed, watered, and warm. I think of all the living things trying to stay warm on such cold days, how does anything survive? The birds, with feathers all fluffed up, stay busy to keep warm by eating one seed at a time. This is a a day when my Dad says, with his quirky sense of humour, “Thank God houses are hollow!”
Luckily, Second Life doesn’t have all the elements of real life! Otherwise I wouldn’t be out here in a short dress and bare shoulders! The Jaded Outfit from KRALUS is a new release that includes two dresses and a pair of shoes! The outfit comes in eight colours, and is Maitreya, SLink, and Belleza mesh body compatible, while the shoes fit those same mesh feet. I’m wearing the Blush tone, it’s a subtle colour so have a close up look on my flickr page by clicking on the picture! Check KRALUS out on Market Place here.
If you’re not in the VIP group for Hello Dave, you should be! This month there’s an advent calendar for the group members to drop in and click on each day! You’ll receive a free mini palette of festive nails! I’m wearing the applier from December 7 here, and if you’re new to the group or missed a couple days it’s not too late, you can still receive past gifts!
The December round of The Chapter Four is on and Le Poppycock has the Warm Fuzzies A & B packs of poses available. Each pack contains six poses. There’s also two couples poses and a free gift to pick up!
My hair is Nadia from the Exclusives pack from [elikatira].
The beautiful Rishi Tattoo in black is from Carol G. Tattoo Wear.
I’m holding a Christmas gift from last years Arcade from Zerkalo.
As usual, I’m wearing the Alex mesh head from Logo with the Irina skin in pale tone from itGirls, along with the Lara mesh body from Maitreya, and the elegant1 hands and high feet from SLink.
I just love ‘It All Starts With a Smile’ on the Heavenly Groove sim! It has lots of little private areas and great scenery!
