{ Drifting Dunes }

Neva-Beach-Full_FINALSo in my last post I said I had a date with the beach… and as promised, here I am at the dunes near Neva River… a beautiful beach with picturesque rocky outcrops courtesy of Studio Skye.  It was warm but with a salty breeze and I had the perfect outfit to stroll along the shore in… the cute little PLAYA top that from MIEL that was featured in FLF this past week and the new maxi skirt from DRIFT which I will admit I am loving everything from that store and Kalli keeps cranking out new stuff like nobody’s business.  BOTH items are mesh and come with a color/texture changing HUD so you can change your look easily and won’t break your inventory or your budget.

I know not everyone had the chance to see Neva River while it was open, but hope you’ve enjoyed my glimpse into this lovely paradise through some of my photos.  Neva is sure to bring us more inspiring settings in the future.

Neva-Night_FINAL

This was my “Goodnight and Farewell” tribute to the beautiful Neva River Sim… I wanted to enjoy it in the dark quiet of night.. the beautiful enchanted forest.  I stayed for quite a while even while editing the photo… listening to the trickling of the waterfall and stream beneath my feet.  It will be missed.

Many thanks again Neva and Bootney and Alex of Skye Studio for bringing us such a lovely place to come and fill us with peace.

Please listen to the music I have chosen to accompany this photo… I found it to be very fitting and hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

{ Goodnight, My Angel }

Angel_FINAL

Goodnight my angel, time to close your eyes, and save these questions for another day

I think I know what you’ve been asking me, I think you know what I’ve been trying to say

I promised I would never leave you

And you should always know, wherever you may go, no matter where you are

I never will be far away

 

Goodnight my angel, now it’s time to sleep,  and still so many things I want to say

Remember all the songs you sang for me, when we went sailing on an Emerald Bay

And like a boat out on the ocean

I’m rocking you to sleep, the water’s dark and deep inside this ancient heart

You’ll always be a part of me

 

Goodnight my angel, now it’s time to dream, and dream how wonderful your life will be

Someday your child may cry, and if you sing this lullaby

Then in your heart,

there will always…be a part of me

 

Someday we’ll all be gone, but lullabyes go on and on

They never die,

that’s how you and I…will be.

{ Rise and shine my sweet… it’s eggs for breakfast }

I rarely have the time to enter contests between RL and my work in SL.  However, I think the contest was just an excuse for me, really.  I had been working so hard getting pics ready for Pose Fair that I didn’t get a chance to get over to the Neva River sim until it’s final days.  It felt rushed sadly, as I explored the beauty that Neva Crystall and Alex Bader (of Skye Studio) had created knowing 2 days would never be enough.  But I did insist on seeing it all, taking in every detail.  I only wished I had been able to take more photos.  It’s such an inspiring place.  Green and lush, rural and earthy this time vs. the more deserted paradise Neva brought to us the last time she opened her sim.  I can’t imagine the plethora of ideas that woman must have in her brain!

So with the clock ticking, I found myself in the yard near the little farmhouse, and it was obvious what was happening….

Neva-Contest_FINAL

Waking up early, with a bit of an ominous sky, the sun breaking through the clouds blinding my tired eyes.  He still sleeps.  The sound of the chickens clucking, birds chirping doesn’t rouse him… I throw on my sweater and boots as I go on to fetch our breakfast.  Fresh eggs gifted  from our hens, how thoughtful of them.  Surely the warm smells from the kitchen will tickle his nose and bring him to me soon.  This is morning on Neva River.
