Spring Haze

Posted on Updated on

Some days, my mind is stirred up with many things to say, and others find my thoughts softly settled within a gentle haze. I took this picture a few days ago, but it perfectly matches my mood today: thoughtful, thinking, musing but nowhere near melancholy. The lyrics are more pensive than I’d like, but the song has been haunting me as spring meets its gentle decline here in the States, and the pre-summer dawns beckon blistering sunrises that will soon settle into months of 110°F+ days. But today, I feel warm for all the right reasons. I hope you have a beautiful weekend ahead. ♡

“Well I know it’s just a spring haze,
But I don’t much like the look of it
And if omens are a godsend, like men, breezing in …
Certain these clouds go somewhere,
Billowing out to somewhere …
Uh-oh, let go, off on my way
Unseen, this eternal wanting …”

There are some things we come to look forward to each day because they bring a wonderful sense of well-being, balance, and contentment to our lives. Perhaps it’s a cuppa (coffee or chai, if you please!) while you’re catching up on blog reading and Flickr browsing. Maybe it’s that last kiss from your loved one before you leave for work, or even just the joy of that first, luxurious feeling of repose after climbing into bed at night.

I have many of these little rituals and touchstones, and one of my favorites is seeing the friendly, genuine, ever-smiling face of my friend Reina Alice on Flickr, whose pictures warm my heart like a rich, soothing sip of coffee on a chilly morning. A little while back, Reina took a lovely picture at the Small Town Green sim, so I went there myself to stand amongst the tulip patches and take a picture in tribute to her own.

I’m always so genuinely touched by the wonderful bonds we form over admiring and appreciating each-other’s endeavors in virtual photography, exploration, and style. Thank you to Reina and everyone in our ever-growing, ever-passionate Flickr family for welcoming me back to Second Life so warmly, and making me feel like I’ve come “home” again once more! ♡
