Secondlife Fashion from ReadMeri | Hello?


‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller,
   Knocking on the moonlit door;
And his horse in the silence champed the grasses
   Of the forest’s ferny floor:
And a bird flew up out of the turret,
   Above the Traveller’s head:
And he smote upon the door again a second time;
   ‘Is there anybody there?’ he said.
But no one descended to the Traveller;
   No head from the leaf-fringed sill
Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes,
   Where he stood perplexed and still.
But only a host of phantom listeners
   That dwelt in the lone house then
Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight
   To that voice from the world of men:
Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair,
   That goes down to the empty hall,
Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken
   By the lonely Traveller’s call.
And he felt in his heart their strangeness,
   Their stillness answering his cry,
While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf,
   ’Neath the starred and leafy sky;
For he suddenly smote on the door, even
   Louder, and lifted his head:—
‘Tell them I came, and no one answered,
   That I kept my word,’ he said.
Never the least stir made the listeners,
   Though every word he spake
Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house
   From the one man left awake:
Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup,
   And the sound of iron on stone,
And how the silence surged softly backward,
   When the plunging hoofs were gone.
(Walter De La Mare)

What to wear in Second Life today?

grafica – awel pose (Grafica Mainstore : Grafica Marketplace)
Bueno Shirt Dress White Stripe (Collabor88)
Moon – Sugar Hiccup (Moon Mainstore)
Foxes Spiritualist Head Piece Gold (Foxes Mainstore)
*LpD* Garbo Clutch (LpD Mainstore)


There’s something about the enquiring and tentative look of the Grafica Awel pose that made me think of my old school favourite – The Listeners by Walter De La Mare. I think it’s the sensation that one moment of being unsure can be captured and illustrated.
Bueno’s shirt dress at Collabor88 this month is a real beauty. A simple design with fitted mesh versions for the best known mesh bodies plus five standard sizes.
I got into Collabor88 yesterday and found that, sadly, it was just as good as my predecessors had indicated. I spent more than I should have! My highlights – Addams, Bueno, Emery, Foxes (doing Mait versions – yay!), Lamb Hair, Tableau Vivant hair, Tres Blah.Half-Deer, Breathe.
