Shadows‘ ~Lindsey Stirling~

No lyrics for you today, as it’s an instrumental song. Lindsey Stirling dances while she plays the violin, and it makes me feel so inadequate! I have trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time, so I can’t imagine being able to do this. When I was a kid I was such a clutz….I could fall doing anything and seemed to break an inordinate amount of bones doing it. I’m not completely cured of this, I just do less daring things that will cause a fall featuring a broken limb. When a person’s young falling is just part of daily life, but as time passes falling presents a whole new range of problems. I’m not to an age that if I fall I’ll break a hip……be bed ridden for a month……develop pneumonia……and die a sad and lonely death…….yet! But, falling sucks. On one of my last major tumbles I was on cement just outside the house, my toe caught on something that wasn’t supposed to be there and someone was around to witness it. It was like slow motion, I stepped off the last stair, caught my toe and the world slowed waaaaaay down……I hear a voice saying, ‘Ohhhhh nooooooo……..oh my gawd……ohhhhhh!’. I go flying through the air, landing on cement and the first thing to hit is my face, then my hands……and then I’m laying there, with blood oozing from various scrapes. I’ve never been graceful, and this is one more instance that proves it. I got up….sat down on the step and cried a few tears, the voice that seemed to do a play-by-play of the fall says cautiously, ‘Are you ok?’. I say cautiously because I come from a family that tends to get mad over things like this and I could just as easily flipped out…..but I nodded…..brushed the stones and crud from my wounds and carried on with my day!

I can’t say enough about the amazing texturing that **UTOPIA@Design** creates! The ‘Rachel’ boots are another perfectly detailed release, exclusive to Cosmopolitan! The soft supple leather along with the sharply defined zipper make them super realistic, and with a HUD that includes 12 leathers and 5 metal options along with 5 areas to customize…..plus….there’s 16 preset combinations to make it easy to change with just one click. There’s also 5 levels of glossiness to make them as shiny as you like. These are fitted for the Maitreya, SLink(Physique/Hourglass), and Belleza(Isis/Freya) mesh bodies. Cosmopolitan runs until April 6.

I’m wearing the ‘honey’ tone of skin from The Skinnery, on the ‘Lara’ mesh body from Maitreya.

The pose is from the ‘Fashion S2’ set of poses from CORPUS.

I know you can’t see any of my surroundings, but I was standing on a concrete block at Grauland when I spotted my shadow! It seemed to stick close to me the entire time I was there! 😀
