New Year’s Elegance

New Year's 1

So Harper invites me to write articles for her blog, and I say, “Well, I’ve done some writing before, back in college, but I hope you’re not expecting something that’ll win an award.”

“Nah,” Harper goes, “this is just for the blog.  Have you used WordPress before?”

“No….”  Learning a new program?  I was getting tenser.

“No problem; it’s very like Word or OpenOffice.  If you blow something up, I’ll fix it afterward with you.  So, we’ll do another fashion shoot, and you can write up the details.”  And I hemmed and I hawed and I sipped at my coffee, and madness must have hit me.  Or Harper had that coffee drugged; I was at her house on the Cayo.  But I said yes.

Christmas Eve 2015

 

An old tradition here at Around the Grid, Bing Crosby and David Bowie in a duet from Bing’s last Christmas special

=====

…The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.”

Hallowe’en 2014 — Witchy Woman

Witchy Woman 1

Raven hair* and ruby lips
Sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
She’s a restless spirit on an endless flight

Woo hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Woo hoo, witchy woman
She got the moon in her eyes

3 more photos and the rest of the song if you read on….

Saint Patrick’s Day 2014

Blarney Stone, Saint Patrick's Day 2014

What’s Saint Patrick’s Day in Second Life without at least one stop in the Dublin regions, especially the Blarney Stone?  I was there for a time today; and, while I couldn’t hear the music (a sound-card condition I plan to remedy with a new computer before this year goes out), I could see that everyone — more beyond this photo — were having a good time.  Whenever there’s something happening in the Dublins, you should get there; the DJs are great, whichever bar or venue you stop in at.
