It is the life of the crystal,
the architect of the flake,
the fire of the frost,
the soul of the sunbeam.
This crisp winter air is full of it.
~John Burroughs, “Winter Sunshine”

All sounds are sharper in winter; the air transmits better.
At night I hear more distinctly the steady roar of the North Mountain.
In summer it is a sort of complacent purr, as the breezes stroke down its sides;
but in winter always the same low, sullen growl.
~John Burroughs, “The Snow-Walkers,” 1866

.. realize ..

Do you read much?  I find that I don’t read nearly as much as I did in the past.  Perhaps it is because of other distractions such as work, TV, internet, games, yes…even Second Life. In the past at times, I’ve had to actually stop reading for a bit because I’d become too engrossed in the story and not sleep!  Books and reading have always been an escape for me. A way to experience another story without living it.   Throughout my years,  libraries were special places to visit.  I even worked in one when I was young.  A library contains so much information; offers so many ideas; and possibly even offers learning opportunities if you take advantage.  While the internet provides so much data now, I still like to escape to a library now and then for the quietness between the stacks and racks of books.

In Second Life, there are libraries.  Some are active with readings and other events.  Others are places to just sit quietly.  No matter the reason or the activities going on, I like stopping in to see the interpretation of the iconic setting.  The library in the Town of Honeybriar, a family role-play community is located on Starlight Grove on the ground floor of the Town Hall. I like the way the owners set it up with the reading areas, the info areas with workstations, the scrolls, and a children’s reading area too.  The Town of Honeybriar is a developing family role play community that offers opportunities for role play with medical services, fire department and other emergency services, dinners out, shopping, and neighborly interaction.  An elementary and high school are on the horizon which will also bring more opportunities.  It is terraformed and landscaped with a tilt towards the southeastern US coastline and is very pretty.  Visit the rental office also on Starlight Grove to find out just what is available.  If you decide to rent, just tell them Sunshine sent you <3

.. remember the sound ..

In Second Life, we always have places where a formal gown is appropriate or even required.  This could be for a party, a night out dancing, a show or maybe just hanging out alone in the snow.  This beautiful gown from Fuzz Lennie over at Zanze would be a perfect addition to your closet.  The gown hugs your curves and I was able to wear it with my mesh body from Maitreya very easily.  The straps wrap over the shoulders to end in a beautiful detail – a metal scroll and a dropped gem!.  Not only will you look ravishing as you enter a room, your exit will be just as engaging!

There is a privacy about it which no other season gives you….
In spring, summer and fall people sort of have an open season on each other;
only in the winter, in the country, can you have longer, quiet stretches
when you can savor belonging to yourself.
                                                                 ~Ruth Stout

Of winter’s lifeless world each tree
Now seems a perfect part;
Yet each one holds summer’s secret
Deep down within its heart.
