Sun Beams

Sun Beams

Give me the splendid silent sun, with all his beams full-dazzling;

~Walt Whitman~

I need sunshine, it’s not just about wanting sunny days, it’s about needing the sunlight to maintain a positive outlook on life. If the weather is cloudy for a prolonged period of time, especially in the winter, my mood slowly sinks lower, until I realize that I haven’t smiled or laughed in days, and my optimistic outlook fades. It’s called ‘seasonal affective disorder‘ and I’m not alone in experiencing it. I become more negative about life, I’m tired most of the time, and I just want to disappear. I never used to know why I felt this way seemingly out of the blue. I didn’t know that the lack of sunshine can do this. But, once I was made aware of it, it all made perfect sense. I used to live in a house with very few south facing windows and had some difficult winters, but once I moved to where I am now, I have the perfect solution to this problem. I have a south facing living room window and from mid October to mid March I enjoy about 45 minutes of direct sunlight right on my chair of choice, during lunch time. I can sit and have lunch while enjoying any rays of light that may come my way. I know I’m S O L when it’s cloudy, but oh when it’s sunny, it’s my little piece of heaven. After a few cloudy days when I’m starting to feel a little low, the sun shines on me and I feel a small glimmer of hope and happiness. After a couple days of sunlight exposure I’m back and happy again. I know there are lights that treat this disorder and I’d definitely get one if I didn’t have access to direct sunlight at some point during the short winter days. I love Canada and all it has, but the days can be long with many hours of darkness.

The 2017 edition of Winter Trend is going strong and LEGAL INSANITY has a couple exclusives to the event, and one is the ‘Sia Dress’! This dress is a long version of a hoodie, with the front pouch and hood to prove it. It features a nice large hood in back with accompanying strings at the neckline and a crown insignia and stripes down the arms. The roomy pouch in the front is perfect for keeping you hands warm or storing your phone, wallet, or cigarettes, if you smoke! 😀 These dresses fit the SLink, Maitreya(seen here), and Belleza mesh bodies and come in twelve versions, or you can get the fatpack. Winter Trend 2017 runs until December 22.

I like the casual weekend look of the ‘Twobi’ hair from [monso]. This is from the black and whites pack.

The ‘Arianna Sneakers’ are from Reign.

My look all starts with the ‘Raine’ skin in ‘miel’ tone from Avada, on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

This pose is from the Maximum pose set from double take.

I’m out on Highway 66 on the Mother Road sim. Please, slow down when you pass me, I’m not really paying attention to the traffic! 🙂
