Soothing Summer Solstice


I’m not sure why exactly, but I’ve been feeling a bit stressed and tense the last day or two. No good reason, really. I suspect it might be the humidity and heat. Except that I love hot weather, summer weather, hazy-hot-humid weather. But maybe I don’t? Not really sure. All I know is that by the end of the day, I’ve been feeling frazzled. (oh – do you think it has anything to do with lack of sleep?)

Fricker Fraker gave us all a gift this evening – his summer solstice concert. Yes, the solstice was actually yesterday, but so what. Stop being so picky. If Fricker is playing, I don’t care WHAT day he claims it is. *grin* Fricker’s music is wonderful. We all gathered at Edloe, thanks to Crap Mariner, who was hosting us all.

I sat down on the grass, sipped my wine, and lost myself in Fricker’s flute playing. I felt all my tension and stress slip away. Vanished. It was so relaxing. So peaceful. So soothing. Balm for the soul.

The only discordant note is that the summer solstice has come and gone. That means the days will be getting shorter. NO! Fricker is playing, and so all unhappiness is banished. We have the whole summer stretching before us. Ahhhhhh…….

Thank you Fricker. Thank you Crap.

The photos here are mine. Panacea Luminos took a photo of me that I think is simply lovely. Thank you Panacea! You are a wonderful photographer! Here are the photos that she posted.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
