Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

If I let go of the belief that we are just flesh that can live and die, and believe that we are much more than that, only then does losing a close friend seem easier! Everyone’s body will die, but who we really are will live on, at least I really hope so! I envision the loved ones we’ve all lost are somewhere that we humans cannot even imagine! I dream of a day that I’m not limited by the world in which I live and this human shell the real ‘me’ is trapped in, to have my spirit free and to be nothing and everything…..at the same time!
I am so taken with the ‘Animal Family’ pose/prop gacha set released by Le Poppycock! The props blend perfectly with natural and expressive poses. I’ve chosen the Wonderment pose/prop for this blog post. It was the stardust that sealed the deal!! Everyone should have a little handful of stardust to remind them of the larger meaning of life! And to enjoy the wonderment of it while riding a reindeer….how much better can it get? All props in the set are worn so you don’t need rezz rights to use them! This gacha set is available now at the December round of The Liaison Collaborative.
Twisted Krissmus is on and Anachron has this incredible Winter Sweater! I believe there is no limit on the amount of sweaters a person can wear this time of year! The sweater comes in men’s and women’s, in five colours, and is transfer for gifting! They come in five standard sizes, but I’m wearing it with the Maitreya, Lara mesh body, easily!
I’m wearing one of the nine colours in the Charade Shadow set from Veechi! This is now available at a fundraiser that’s being held to help support Perky Button, who has lost her house to fire! As you learned in one of my previous posts, I know exactly how it is to live through this. So please, help Perky out by purchasing a few things by some really good designers! There’s something there everyone!
Also at the fundraiser is the Nymph-Leather Lace Up Boots in brown leather from Livalle. You can’t see a good clear shot in this post, but I will be wearing them again!
I’ve stolen the Jeweled Tights from a marvelous outfit by zanze! The outfit includes a sweater dress and these tights and it’s at the December round of Designer Showcase.
As always, 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 mesh hands from SLink.
I just love It All Starts With a Smile! It’s in the Heavenly Groove sim and there’s all kinds of great little areas to sit and contemplate life! Or ride your reindeer! 🙂
