Girl From the North Country

Girl From the North Country

If you’re traveling the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
For she once was a true love of mine

If you go when the snowflakes storm
When the rivers freeze and summer ends
Please see if she has a coat so warm
To keep her from the howlin’ winds

Please see if her hair hangs long
If it rolls and flows all down her breast
Please see for me if her hair’s hanging long
For that’s the way I remember her best

I’m a-wonderin’ if she remembers me at all
Many times I’ve often prayed
In the darkness of my night
In the brightness of my day

So if you’re travelin’ in the north country fair
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline
Remember me to one who lives there
She once was a true love of mine

Girl From the North Country‘ ~Bob Dylan feat. Johnny Cash~

I’m not sure if I’m THE girl from the north country, but I am Canadian and I’m female…so that’s close enough for me. I think the girl in the song has a lot more mystery than I ever will. I’m just a straight forward woman, I can’t be anything other than who I am and I’m content with that. Sure, I could be a better person, I’m not perfect……..I swear too much, and that’s not good………but you know…….some things just p*ss me off! Now, the term ‘p*ssed off’ is one of some confusion, depending on where you’re from. In my part of the world it means to be angry or mad……….or……..you can tell someone to ‘p*ss off’, meaning to get lost or leave. When we say we’re ‘p*ssed’, we mean drunk, whereas in the USA that means to be mad. So…..it can lead to a lot of confusion……whether one is drunk, angry, or being told to get out. But I guess no matter what, it’s always better to be p*ssed off than p*ssed on! πŸ˜› That topic of conversation went downhill fast! πŸ˜€

So, I worked on this picture 2 different days……..I struggled with angle, mostly…..but after doing a whole bunch of pics of this scene yesterday…..I logged in today and got it in one shot. Go figure….but the good thing is I’m pretty happy with this one. I’m using a pose from the ‘Eloa Series’ from CKEY Poses. The set of 5 poses are all bento with intricate hand poses to add detail and mood to any scene.

The ‘Stacey Jeans’ and ‘Luma Tube Top’ are both from *Just BECAUSE*. They’re fitted for the major mesh bodies and come in tons of colours.

My hair is ‘G0127’ from tram.

And my look all starts with 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 at the always inspiring Grauland for this shot! I almost took up residence there, I took so long getting a picture. πŸ˜€
