The Return-The Woodlands Estates

It is with great excitement and a renewed sense of creativity that I have returned to  Second Life. I pondered what to do with this SLife this time around. For weeks I would pop in and out mulling it over.

By chance, someone danced  into my world bringing with her all the wonder and passion that I, had myself, for the creative aspect of Second Life. With this, not only did a wonderful friendship begin budding but so did all of my very own desires for the artistic and creative side of SL that I always loved.

I am very honored to be joined by Sadie Nova Resident in bringing a new community into Second Life. Please welcome, The Woodlands Estates to the grid.

Open Air Solitude

shed_001final.png

To sit on rocks, to muse o’er flood and fell,
To slowly trace the forest’s shady scene,
Where things that own not man’s dominion dwell,
And mortal foot hath ne’er or rarely been;
To climb the trackless mountain all unseen,
With the wild flock that never needs a fold;
Alone o’er steeps and foaming falls to lean;
This is not solitude, ’tis but to hold
Converse with Nature’s charms, and view her stores unrolled.

But midst the crowd, the hurry, the shock of men,
To hear, to see, to feel and to possess,
And roam alone, the world’s tired denizen,
With none who bless us, none whom we can bless;
Minions of splendour shrinking from distress!
None that, with kindred consciousness endued,
If we were not, would seem to smile the less
Of all the flattered, followed, sought and sued;
This is to be alone; this, this is solitude!

George G. Byron

Down at the Barn

theblacksmith2_001final.png

Mid-afternoon sun lingers outside wide plank doors soothing this rustic structure now mourning days past. Inside, damp cool air and dim lighting, dusk yearned musky smells trick our senses nestled on forest floor. Daylight peers in through cracks and covers our skin with stripes – Somehow, I don’t feel quite so naked. ~ B.Teagan

Rainy Day at the Office

“When spring came, even the false spring, there were no problems except where to be happiest. The only thing that could spoil a day was people and if you could keep from making engagements, each day had no limits. People were always the limiters of happiness except for the very few that were as good as spring itself.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Simple Elegance

SimpleElegance.png

It was an imposing space, to say the least. The massive glass table took up most of the expansive space the dark, romantic room offered, left without a tablecloth and daring guests to ruin the perfectly windexed shine with their unworthy fingerprints. Two tall, silver planter vases commanded attention from the center of the table, holding fragrant, hydrangeas.

Country Clubhouse by the Lake

countryclubhouse2_001final.png

This cozy little clubhouse is perfect for the little tyke(s) in your family. It comes complete with the clubhouse itself, boat as decor, fishing poles, and three trees.

{Sahi Desgins @ The Expo}

One perk to purchasing this clubhouse is that all of the proceeds from the sale of this home go to the Relay for Life-American Cancer Society.This clubhouse is available at the RFL Home& Garden Expo.

The colorful grass underneath the clubhouse is also available at the expo and is from Shabby Tabby.

{Shabby Tabby @ The Expo}

The Expo opens on February 14th and runs through March 6th, 2016.

“The Home and Garden Expo (commonly called The Expo) raises money for Relay For Life of Second Life (RFL of SL). Relay For Life is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event, and RFL of SL is one of its virtual counterparts. You can find more information about RFL of SL at http://relayforlifeofsecondlife.org/ ” (1)

“100% of registration fees, sponsorship fees, and donation items are paid to Relay For Life of Second Life. Gachas are a new opportunity to the Expo this year, and 50% of the proceeds from these will be paid to RFL.”(1)

 

Cocktail Hour

nighttimecocktailhour_001

I eye the room and notice the empty bar. I always manage to show up entirely too early. I gather myself and pull out a chair, sitting delicately on the edge of the barstool I reach into my purse and light up a smoke.
As a canon, my chest pushes out smoke in rapid, deliberate bursts. Hazy o-rings float upward, distorting and twisting along their wayward path. When correctly executed, smoking is its very own art form. The smoker does not work with hands but instead with his lungs, throat, and lips. With these simple tools, I exhale transitory sculptures- a cast of billions of vibrating N₂ and H₂ gas particles- momentarily coming together to create clouds of milky white intoxication. Every puff accompanied by the sound of soft trichomes incinerating and crackling, releasing a familiar scent which once known can never be forgotten. The sweet and musky aroma hints of citrus and pine. In a state of utter relaxation, I watch as the smoke rhythmically dissipates, one ring after another, and settles to form a layer of dancing fog near the ceiling.
