Listening to A Summer Song


http://Holding onto Summerhttp://Goodbye to Summer

I really can’t believe how quickly that nip in the air appeared.  In the space of just a few days I went from wearing shorts and tank tops to jeans, 3/4 sleeves, and even a jacket at certain times of day. The trees have felt it, too, and are just starting to turn.  And although their autumnal color is very beautiful and the fall air is refreshing after the oppressive heat, it’s also bittersweet…  I’ve always found fall to be a little sad. All the beauty of fall is actually a form of death (of course, much of it is reborn in spring, but still).  And although it doesn’t mean as much as it once did, when there was a real break in life between summer and the rest of the year, there’s enough of a holdover from childhood for it to be a bit melancholy.  It’s the time of all the “lasts”… one last summer barbecue, one last swim in the lake, one last bonfire, sometimes it’s one last kiss… whatever your summer is about… whatever made it special to you.  The weatherman says we’ll be back in shorts for a couple of days midweek, but I know that’s just a delaying tactic by mother nature… summer’s end is coming, if not already here… and it’s time for that one lasting look around before it’s gone (at least until next year!)… and to turn around and head into the next season with its own beauty, its own pleasures…  They’re already selling Halloween candy in the RL stores and Halloween costume here on the grid… can pumpkin spice latte be far behind?  😉

  • Dress:  Graffitiwear – String Kini Fatpack.  The perfect way to bid farewell to summer, this bikini comes with a matching half-on/half-off jacket that is sliding off your shoulders in a very natural but oh so sexy way.  The detail is fantastic, down to the way the little drawstring cords hang at the bottom of the jacket. Available in two color themes, dark & light (I’ve shown one of each), both with 10 tones for the top, the bottom, & the jacket separately. Sized for Tonic, Slink H/P, Belleza F/I/V,  & Maitreya.  Available at the Designer Circle 18/19 Sept 8th – 21st.  Demo available.
  • Campfire:  Nerenzo Design – Awesome Campfire, full package… includes the log with pillow (3 different colors wood; texture change menu for the pillows), the campfire (turns on & off), the radio, the backpack, the stump with candles, mushrooms, clover, grass, & a 7 rock arrangement.  It’s all copy, so you can set up a scene however works best for you… for me, trying to hang on to that last piece of summer, listening to the radio play A Summer Song, is the scene that came to mind.  Available in both cuddle & adult versions as the “full package” with the rezzables & the fire, or as a “log only” version. The fire itself can be bought separately too. Both the cuddle & the adult version have a 100% bento menu of 131 single & couple animations (but no facial expressions except the oral animations in the adult menu). The full package (both versions) currently has a promo price of 30% OFF until the Sept 22nd.
