Song of Myself

Song of Myself

I celebrate myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

~ “Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman

Song of Myself

I have been going back and forth with my mom about going up to Door County again this year. I love it up there but it always ends up being about what the kids want to do. After a while, miniature golf and lumpy beds and mosquitoes is just not a reason to drive 3 hours. I dream about being able to go to a lake home on my own, just to enjoy a day or two of peace and quiet. Thoreau did it; why can’t I?

Tya Fallingbridge is making my dream come true in SL. With her Lake House, which is featured at the Home Show, I am able to enjoy my dream of peace and solitude in a cushy environment. The home comes complete with a bed and shower, and all are equipped with adult animations, but I am enjoying them sans partner. I can lounge on the bed and play with apps or read my Kindle. I could also float around outside aimlessly on The Raft she has made for FaMESHed, which also includes a variety of adult animations.

I lounge fashionably in a top from Paul Lapointe and BastChild Lotus that includes their excellent texture change HUD and beautiful textures. Buy one top and get tons of looks. ValentinaEvangelista is offering these darling shorts at FaMESHed this month, perfect for lakeside relaxation.

She even includes a great shower behind the bed for a rinse after a swim or a romantic encounter. This also includes adult animations as well as single and the spray turns on or off. Imagine a swim in a placid lake alone and then the warm water of the shower, the quiet, the peace.

Song of Myself

I have outfit the house with some choice pieces of furniture from Cory Edo, who has also tapped into my desire for a relaxing time alone. First the Pallet Chair with Blanket, which she offers at the Home Show, on which I lounge in the sunset, pondering my existence and marveling at the lack of mosquitoes in SL. The Countryside Patio Table and Chair, which she offers at FaMESHed, are a perfect place for me to sit with a glass of wine and a book while the sun goes down. Quietly.

I’d be remiss if I did not mention this gorgeous skin from Tricky Boucher, offered at Summerfest (I am guessing not named after the one I went to yesterday in RL), bespeckled with a smattering of freckles and featuring Tricky’s beautiful features. My hair is MissAllSunday Lemon’s contribution at FaMESHed this month, pulled back with a hairband and beautiful. My necklace is Maxi Gossamer’s FaMESHed piece with color change stones, available in gold or silver. And my eyes are from Lano Ling’s newest “pearl” line.

I love to be alone. I never found the companion that was so companionable as solitude. ~ Henry David Thoreau
