‘Arc‘ ~Eddie Vedder!
I have to admit that the songs I choose aren’t always long time favourites of mine. I spend a lot of time on YouTube listening to new artists that I’ve not yet heard. I love when a song is with a photo on flickr, I always have to click that link to listen to the song that someone chose to put with that particular image. It’s a great way to find new songs and artists that I might not already be familiar with. So, if you put a link to a song with your picture, know that I am going to be listening to it. In turn, I like to try to introduce my followers to music that maybe they hadn’t heard before, you may not like it all, but each song I choose to feature strikes me in some way emotionally. I haven’t shared anything by Eddie Vedder recently, so I decided to search him on YouTube and way down the list of videos I found this one. I find it haunting and completely magical…mainly because there’s no lyrics to take the focus off of the music iteslf. The sounds and emotion are more than enough to make my mind slow down and to breath deep in relaxation. When I find music that soothes me, I tend to go to it again and again to help me find a moment or two of peace. Eddie Vedder does that for me, regardless of the song, there’s something about his voice and the emotion he puts into it that takes me away from the real world and into a more peaceful and loving place.
I’m out on the dock at my home, and although I look like I’m napping, I’m not….I’m just taking a few moments to enjoy the quiet around me. The pose I’m using is from the F.4 set of bento poses from IntoXx. The set consists of 5 sitting poses, all natural, relaxed and unique. I’ve always been a pose hoarder in Second Life, and at this point I can’t even guess at how many I have, but I’m always looking for new ones. IntoXx has both male and female poses plus some very nice couples poses that I’ll be showing you in the near future. I’ve always felt that the choice of pose is the most important part of a photograph, then I add windlight and camera angle, trying to get the picture to speak for me. This set of poses, plus a men’s set of poses and 2 new couples poses from IntoXx, are available now at the ACCESS event, which runs until July 7.
As for my outfit, I’m wearing the ‘Michonne’ tank top from /erratic/ with the ‘Ella’ denim shorts from LEGAL INSANITY, which you can’t see…but believe me they’re there! The ‘G1224’ hair is from tram and the ‘Enigma’ tattoo is from Queen oF Ink. As always I’m wearing the ‘Maddie’ skin in ‘honey’ tone from The Skinnery on the ‘Lilo’ bento head from Catwa and the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.
I’m sitting on the ‘Jenica Wicker Chair’ from Trompe Loeil.
