.. promise of spring ..

“The spring wakes us, nurtures us and revitalizes us.
How often does your spring come?
If you are a prisoner of the calendar, it comes once a year.
If you are creating authentic power, it comes frequently, or very frequently.”
    ~  Gary Zukav

Sometimes spring comes in so noticeably – the flowers pushing up through the top layer of soil, the buds popping out at the ends of the branches, the birds singing their beautiful songs in the morning air.  But sometimes the season has so many starts and stops and do-overs due to the lingering of the cold and icy winter.  In Second Life, we can celebrate the seasons we enjoy most at any time or we can create our own surroundings to fit our need or want.  I find that summer is the most popular in Second Life with autumn a close second.  Winter is fun and gets a lot of play in December.  We often bleed right from winter into a more summer existence… it is often difficult to discern between spring and summer in this virtual world and maybe even in our real one too… but spring is such a promise, it is often refreshing and new – the colors, the breezes and warming trends in clothing.  We should focus on spring… take the time to welcome it and savor that promise.

The Arcade Gacha Event opens today and it will be amazingly busy on the sim for probably a few days.  There are so many fun things to be had this round from the cute Penguins from *MishMash* to the Snowman that can be dressed from Noodles to the awesome Igloos from {what next}.  So many fun wintry items that can be used for decoration or snapping pictures or just for fun.  Analog Dog’s Queen for a Month hair that I’m wearing comes with that crown which makes it great fun and 8f8’s Bunny Mittens are just too adorable.  Certainly will not get cold while wearing the Frosting Coats from Rachel Breaker even if you are sitting on an igloo!
