When it snows



BDR Snowflake, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.

We all have those times in our lives when the sun is shining and everything seems perfect. But we would never really understand the warmth of the sun if we never felt the chill of snow. You have to have those days, you know the ones, when the sun seems to be struggling behind the clouds. And our moods, in fact life itself, seems to mimic the long cold shadows that are cast around us, and we shiver a little inside. The world and our direction seems blurred by the flurry of snow and confusion. For everyone who goes through these times, remember to bundle up and look forward on your path, there on the horizon are brighter, warmer days. I promise, they are coming. You might just have to walk a little in the cold. But doing so will make you appreciate that warmth so much more when you finally do reach it.

Caught in the act



Sunflower Fae, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.

Never before seen, this Sunflower Faerie was caught on camera planting a seed. Both the fae and photographer were equally surprised by their mutual discovery, causing that moment of startled indecision. Sadly only this single still image was captured. As soon as she realized she was spotted the fussy little fae buzzed around the camera holder furiously then flew off.

Most humans are clueless and don't realize that while the world is settling down for a relaxing evening, the fae are busy in hidden places making the world a beautiful place. So the next time you're sitting on your porch sipping your iced-cold tea and watching the sun set, see if your eyes can spot one of these busy little creatures at work. Just make sure you don't let them know you see, because as cute as they appear they aren't always so cuddly.

Sunshine on my Shoulders



Autumn, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.
(Pose brought to you by !Bang)

Fall is such a beautiful time of year to me. It means change. The golds, the reds, and sometimes purples are so colorful and vivid. They invoke that feeling of hope. Its a time of reflection and to find some inner peace. Days grow shorter as the air become crisp and cool. And through it all the sunshine filters through inviting us to bask in its glow.

"Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy.
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry.
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely.
Sunshine almost always makes me high.

Faun's Midnight



Faun's Midnight, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.

When the moon sits high in the evening sky its ghostly glow filtering through the trees, the shadows come to life dancing in time with every whispered breeze. In this hour, half way between the setting of dusk and breaking dawn, this is the magical midnight hour, a time for the frolicking of fauns.

Chasing Pirates


Pirate Kitty faded, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.


In your message you said, you were goin' to bed, but I'm not done with the night.
So I stayed up and read, but your words in my head, got me mixed up so I turned out the light.

And I, don't know how, to slow it down.
My mind's racing from chasing pirates.

Well the man in there swings while the silliest things, floppin around in my brain.
And I try not to dream but them possible schemes, swim around, wanna drown me in synch.

And I, don't know how, to slow it down.
Oh my mind's racing from chasing pirates.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas


Christmas2010a, originally uploaded by ~sierra sugar~.

Where I come from in Real Life we have seasons such as "Summer", "August", "Hot" and "February" (where we get a slight reprieve from the heat and humidity). So Fall and Winter in Second Life for me are the most enjoyable. I love to see Sim landscaping change with the seasons. I love how all the stores fashions reflect the colder weather of wintry climates. I love the warm fuzzy sweaters and boots of all varieties. And I love to decorate for the holidays with all the little pretties I find around the grid.

Second Life is a great big play ground of amazing possibilities, fantastical creations, and imagination without boundaries. So as I sit here sipping hot chocolate in my house cooled to a comfortable 70 degrees thanks to the modern luxury of air conditioning, I decorate my home Sim for Christmas. Caribbean Islands are not known for their blustery winters and snow days, so I build up in the sky. SL is great for defying the laws of physics too! In my little skybox I'm able to create a cozy snowy scene complete with frozen pond, frost covered evergreens, and a cute little wooden cabin.

I string some paper snowflakes across the doorway and hang a pretty wreath on the wall. A simple Christmas tree with its twinkling lights brings a touch of festive cheer. As I sit all warm and cozy inside my cabin I can look out on my perfect little winter scene and smile. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
