From ghoulies and ghosties
And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night,
Good Lord, deliver us!

“Burning hot is the ground, liquid gold is the air”

The thistledown’s flying, though the winds are all still,
On the green grass now lying, now mounting the hill,
The spring from the fountain now boils like a pot;
Through stones past the counting it bubbles red-hot.

The ground parched and cracked is like overbaked bread,
The greensward all wracked is, bents dried up and dead.
The fallow fields glitter like water indeed,
And gossamers twitter, flung from weed unto weed.

Hill-tops like hot iron glitter bright in the sun,
And the rivers we’re eying burn to gold as they run;
Burning hot is the ground, liquid gold is the air;
Whoever looks round sees Eternity there.

“Autumn” by John Clare

“And I dress this way just to keep them at bay”

Can you tell it’s getting close to October? I CAN AND I’M SO HAPPY! Fall is my favorite season and Halloween is my favorite holiday, so I’m in blogger heaven this time of year. And there’s no better way to start it off than with this beautifully detailed mask from Violetility for the Secret Affair!

“A summer’s dream had fled”

I apologize in advance for the many posts using the dragon spirits from egosumaii’s offerings for this month’s The Arcade. I just…really love them. Really. Love. Them. egosumaii included many bento poses to go with the dragons, so I am morally obligated to use as many as possible. ^.^ Also, they are beautifully designed and textured, so the product is – quite simply – one of the most inspiring things I’ve had the pleasure of blogging in Second Life.

Haru no yo no

If I had made thy proffered arm
A pillow for my head
For but the moment’s time, in which
A summer’s dream had fled,
What would the world have said? ~ The Lady-in-waiting Suwo No Naishi

“The Japanese conceive themselves the direct descendants of their own gods.” – Percival Lowell Occult Japan

As a blogger, there are some items you know are coming down the pike from a sponsor that you just cannot wait to drop into your hot little hands. The Bento dragon spirit collaboration from {egosumaii} for The Arcade is one of those things! Ever since I saw Aii’s WIP for these wonderful babies, I’ve been drooling and making grabby hands. I’d already assembled the outfit and then when Kaorinette released the latest CURELESS [+] group gift, I nearly hemorrhaged at the perfection.

Many thanks to Zeluren Zerundi (awtan.feden) for embodying my Kami. He is a perfect god. ♥
