Zscape Four_Between Lines Russell EponymAs I sat there at Ce Soir Arts listening to Russell Eponym spout literature to us while keeping us toe-tapping happy with Irish songs, something caught my eye.  I love pumpkins, for not only are they trademarks for my favorite time of year, it’s considered tradition to display and sample them over two seasons.

Pumpkins Rule!

Relinquishing The Past

“Never go back.”
This was the advice my Pops gave to me long ago when I was contemplating going back to a previous relationship. He was right.  Why would I try to hang on to something that was proven to be bad in the first place?
Why can’t we just let the past go?
Like the fall leaf that tries to hold on to Autumn in the photo above called, “Pop’s Gift“, I too try to hold on to the past — allowing it to stunt my growth making it difficult to progress forward.

Relinquishing_The_Past

I don’t want to be like this leaf.  I want to let the past go, pressing onward to a brighter season.

Changing Lanes“… let others catch up instead of turning from our own lane.”

Bell wrote this commenting on my post Dearly Beloved.
What she wrote stuck with me.  So much so that I felt I must express her words in photography.  The end result:
Changing Lanes

CocoonedTwilighting.
It’s what I’ve always called it — that state between awake and falling asleep.  But, there’s an actual scientific name for it.
Hypnagogia or in my case last night, Hypnopompic (between sleeping and awake).
This image, Cocooned, is what I saw.
Wrapped in the branches of a tree, I rest like a sleeping baby unaware and uncaring of any negative energy that may be surrounding me.
Safe.
Secured.
Cocooned.

I’m in mourning.

Mourning_GloryLike a reptile shedding it’s skin, I am leaving what I once was behind.
I find it necessary to shrug off bad experiences and learn from them.

Mourning_In_Flowers

To take each and every negative particle and apply them to my arms,
my legs, my ass, my heart and my soul.

Flowers_In_Mourning

All of this is in an effort to toughen up to withstand whatever lies ahead for me.

CelebratingMyImperfectionsToo

Sometimes, I just get really tired of trying to make things perfect all the time. In the real world, we are not perfect and if we aren’t blessed with oodles to bankroll what we feel is wrong, we must remain with our imperfections for a lifetime.

CelebratingMyImperfections
Well, from here on out, I will do as little as possible to correct my pixel imperfections. They really have nothing to do with why I take these pictures in the first place — freedom of expression.

ALL THINGS CHANGE, LADY

Nearsighted

Quoting one of my favorite movies, Legend, all things do change.

Take me, for example.
I have retired from the modeling industry which means there will be no more competitions, auditions, challenges nor scratching to try and reach “the top.”  I’m perfectly happy right here where I am on my isle of uniqueness where I can totally be myself without reproach.
Afloat

What will I do now?
Who knows, but photography has caught my eye (pun not intended).  Through SL’s lense, I can express myself in ways I never could before.  With my sense of fashion and my love of change (I’m currently an Albino — what I wanted to be from the very beginning of my career, but knew I’d never be accepted mainstream), I will reach areas  I only dreamed of.
Watch.
You’ll see…..

HOW TO SURVIVE ON DRY LAND

If you sweat on your nose, you’re mean!
Well, I must be one of the meanest people to hit this planet.
As you’ve already read in the previous adventure, The Eyes Have It, I can’t stand the heat.  Forever seeking ways to stay cool I have wet my wrists, fanned like a maniac with a paper plate, poured water on my head and stuck it briefly in the freezer.  Temporary fixes, I know.  But, one day as the Sun God is my witness, I will beat the heat and never go sweaty again.  Until then, it’s okay to look cool, right?
Glad you agree!
I’ve invited my buddy Zantelofas to help me in my endeavor to look cool against the sizzling odds.

We began by raiding Wicca’s Wardrobe.
He chose Ms. Merlin’s Eddy Suit and I, her Skully Corset — the perfect accompaniment to the suit (You’ll see why on the last image).  To shade and protect my delicate skin and sensitive eyes, I took  Wicca’s Velvet Parasol in hand and settled her Creature Glasses on my nose.
To test our theory that fashion can overcome the elements, we embarked on an adventure to a dried up lake bed in the middle of nowhere called Anita Witt’s Dryland.

ZZTops1

Yup.
Theory proven!
Zante looks amazingly cool in his Eddy Suit whereas I..well, I am me.
Zany, “out there” and…

…sweating on my nose.
