Fell On Black Days

Fell On Black Days

Whatsoever I’ve feared has come to light
And whatsoever I’ve fought off became my life

Just when every day seemed to greet me with a smile
Sunspots have faded
And now I’m doing time
Now I’m doing time

‘Cause I fell on black days
I’ve fell on black days

Whomsoever I’ve cured
I’ve sickened now
And whomsoever I’ve cradled
I’ve put you down

I’m a search light soul they say
But I can’t see it in the night
I’m only faking when I get it right
When I get it right

‘Cause I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate
How would I know
That this could be my fate

So what you wanted to see good has made you blind
And what you wanted to be yours has made it mine

So don’t you lock up something
That you wanted to see fly
Hands are for shaking
No not tying
No not tying

I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change
Yeah, I sure don’t mind
I sure don’t mind a change
I sure don’t mind a change

But I fell on black days
I fell on black days

How would I know
That this could be my fate

How would I know
That this could be my fate

How would I know
That this could be my fate

How would I know
That this could be my fate

I sure don’t mind the change

Fell On Black Days‘ ~Chris Cornell~

Not really…..but for now my black days are only a memory. I’m not so naivè to think I’ll never have black days again, life has a habit of kicking one in the a** now and then, but at least when my days are sunny I can enjoy them and not worry about future darkness. Well….actually there are times that I do worry about future darkness, I mean………time passes…we all age…….things change and people will eventually pass on. And knowing that makes me more determined to enjoy the time I have….because whether we want to think about it or not…we’re all going to die! If only we knew this when we were young so we’d know to not waste time worrying about things that have absolutely no importance in the big scheme of the world. Apparently, George Bernard Shaw was right when he said, “Youth, is the most beautiful thing in this world—and what a pity that it has to be wasted on children!”.

I have to say that this picture has some exciting stuff going on. I’ll start with the Pose Fair:Autumn Festival releases! The ‘Autumn Wind Wool Cloak’ is an amazing addition to the bento items already all over the grid. It’s 100% original mesh from -slouch- poses and the bento animation makes it change with each pose worn. It’s not for everyday life in SL, but it adds incredible effect to photographs. It’s colour change by HUD and fitted for the Maitreya, Lara mesh body. At the Pose Fair:Autumn Festival there’s 2 sets of bento poses available with it(sold separately) or you can do what I did this time………I’m using a pose/prop from the ‘Nictophilia’ gacha set of pose/props from Le Poppycock(I’ll talk more about that in a bit). The cloak works better with some poses than others, but when it works, it’s incredible! The Pose Fair:Autumn Festival runs until November 10.

So, Le Poppycock has put together another incredible set of pose/props….this one including skeletons, skulls, gargoyles, and all kinds of creepy things. There’s 14 to play for and they’re all completely unique and able to create great atmosphere. The poses are bento and are easily adjustable to fit most avatars plus you simply ‘add’ them to yourself so you can pose anywhere you like without needing to rezz anything. This set is also available at the Pose Fair:Autumn Festival.

And now…….about the dress! It’s the ‘Sorcha Dress’, a new release from *Just BECAUSE* and available at the main store. It’s loaded with colours and options including the bustle and top having on/off toggles, the skirt part has 12 incredible plaid textures, included in the fatpack or sold as a separate prints pack, along with the 24 solid colours and 6 metal options. It’s rigged for the major mesh bodies, including Legacy.

The ‘Beatrix Choker’ is from .::Supernatural::..

To complete the windy effect I’m wearing the ‘Mayu’ hair from Argrace, which I’m not sure is still available, I can’t find it anywhere.

The rest of me includes 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 Hazardous for this one.
