Belated Happy Halloween! – Or welcome to the dark season of the year *winks*

Slowly I start to believe Vivien more and more when she said 2022 is cursed and we just should skip the rest of it… After catching Covid the 3rd time I started to get better again when my the kids of my school gifted me some kind of weird flu – another week down. Now last weekend It felt like it would be over and agreed to have lunch with my mom. I said I will prepare everything and we will come down to eat, so she doesn’t have to get up all the stairs (we live in one house but 2 different apartments). So we prepared everything and already were on our way down. I still felt a little wonky so the second half of the stairs, my partner decided to take the potatoes and the meat off my hands which I was carrying in a pot. When he had everything, I thought I could get down a little faster and … DANG… I fell down the second half of the stairs. Right knee, left shoulder and left wrist did hurt like hell and parts of the hand already were dark red, a few days later dark blue. My  knee was the worst as I could not walk anymore kinda instantly – Another half week on the couch and not really able to sit or move.. bye bye Halloween *sighs*

So today is the first day I was able to get up again and limp on my own through the apartment to my computer and sit down to work a little bit.

So you will have to stick with some more creepy, spooky pictures for a while I guess, as I prepared quite a few for Halloween *giggles* – But then, most of you are anyway used to my dark side and the fact that the dark season for me doesn’t end with Halloween anyway :p

So belated Happy Halloween!

Mother of Autumn

Made for the AttentionSL Magazine October 2022 // https://indd.adobe.com/view/4e274a38-1262-47d1-9f49-1c26ce8a0e62

Autumn’s Mother Heart

And there Autumn met me
with the loveliest of winds;
but a heart blown asunder
as her leaves would fall again.

She mourned like a mother
who may lose her only child.
So I looked past grand color,
to see grief in her raw wild.

The moon rose like a wizened soul,
as I swam into Autumn’s stream,
a whirlwind of warm memories
and soon-stolen wishes and dreams.

I spoke kind words that did little
to ease her deep growing beast.
She even trembled with vestiges
of leaf prints near her knees.

And so, I did the only thing
a human could truly do.
I bowed with grace before her,
and kept vigil through and through.

With bravery, Autumn finally let go . . .
as our tears shook and echoed
into winter’s bleary woe.

Time moved on as it has the want and will,
past winter, spring, and summer still;
and again, I greeted Autumn.

She smiled when she saw me,
and bowed to me with grace;
the human that saw fit to stay
in grief’s lonely darkened space.

I walked closer to divine Autumn,
the wisest mother of them all,
to notice lines and creases softer,
at peace with her destined fall.

Once more, sweet leaves moved from her
and, yes, she blustered and cried.
But, in the end, she whispered to me,
Love branches immortal, never to die.

“Lost in Time, and lost in Space… and Meaning.”

“And crawling on the planet’s face,
some insects called the human race.
Lost in time, and lost in space.
And meaning.”

[- Richard O’Brien, The Rocky Horror Show -]

Again I am coming to you with a wonderful memory of an amazing evening. A few days ago my sweet sister Vivien offered me to be part of one of her amazing, creative art shots. She asked me if I would have the new doll modifications from Salt & Pepper – certainly I do! She had built a wonderful set and had planned the shot for 5 people. It looked amazing and on her Flickr (HERE) you can see her amazing artwork of that picture. I tried to grab a shot too but it was one of those days where nothing wanted to razz and the more people you have the harder it goes. So I asked her if she would be ok with having  another shoot when she was done with just us 2 and lightly different poses. She said yes and did let me use the set she built too – Thank you for that Sis ♥♥♥.

It is so much fun to just do what you feel not running after deadlines only and it always feels like a little holiday for me when we work on some pictures together.

The whole theme looked very fragile and sweet and that is really easy for me as I am usually the dark and deep color lover, but it felt like a cool challenge and something new 😉

Thank you for another wonderful evening and a great time Sis ♥♥♥. If you want to know about her style.. just poke her 😉

Above you can see the try of my version… new but interesting, I hope you like it nevertheless!

Venomous Poison

TUNES

Your cruel device
Your blood, like ice
One look, could kill
My pain, your thrill

I wanna love you but I better not touch
I wanna hold you, but my senses tell me to stop
I wanna kiss you but I want it too much
I wanna taste you but your lips are venomous poison
You’re poison, running through my veins
You’re poison
I don’t want to break these chains
