I actually took the day off from blogging seriously and it feels wonderful. Every now and again it happens. The words fade away. I think its because I’ve had a rather stressful few days both personally, professionally and Second Lifely. The perfect maelstrom of forces pulling me every which a way and requiring undivided attention that I do not have. So instead of beginning to blog items for The Couturier’s Dock, now that the SIM store is in place and ready to launch today March 29, 2013 at 1:00 PM SLT, I decided to step back and play a little. A month or so ago Belle Roussel of Chop Zuey (the jewelry store), gave me a folder full of her items. I told her at the time, I’ve so little time to spare, I don’t really blog individual designers anymore, but she kindly told me not to worry about it to just play with them from time to time because she liked my style. I thought that the grandest compliment! Thank you Belle.
So today when I decided I just wanted to play with windlights and photography, I pulled on Chop Zuey’s Rocinantes Curve, styled around the pieces and headed over to Neva Crystall’s Neva River SIM. Such a gorgeous place, if you get a chance stop by there before it’s closed off again. As you may know, in Don Quixote, as written by Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote named his skinny little horse Rocinantes. There was much thought by Quixote in naming the horse. “Four days were spent in thinking what name to give him, because (as he said to himself) it was not right that a horse belonging to a knight so famous, and one with such merits of his own, should be without some distinctive name, and he strove to adapt it so as to indicate what he had been before belonging to a knight-errant, and what he then was.” Rocinantes is much like Don Quixote in that he is awkward, past his prime, and engaged in a task beyond his capabilities. Just like me this week. Don’t you love it when all the pieces fit together without fore thought!
I spent an hour snapping pictures, refocusing my soul, and relaxing. My mind has quieted while I played. The take from? Yes. Don’t force life to happen, it will happen anyway. If you find you are just getting further and further behind. Stop, play a while, enjoy the view. You may never quite catch up to where you should be, but honestly, on the last day of your life, do you really think you will care? Life is about living. Have a wonderful weekend! I am feeling so much better about my day, I even included the taxi for you! Chop Zuey:
