Now tell me what you know
Is this a story or
An allegory for the racket knocking at my door?
What’s the difference if it’s real or a dream?
Imagination playing tricks on me
~ “Murakami” by Made in Heights
I had just finished reading Haruki Murakami’s newest book, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage, when this song came on KCRW and I thought, Really? I have to say that it is not his best though I did enjoy it greatly. There is something about Murakami that is very satisfying—perhaps his universalism (he’s well loved by people around the world), his minimalism (think Raymond Carver, who is a strong influence), or his benign sense of alienation (never has felt very “Japanese,” he says).
So the post is named after him and the song and a message to Mami Jewell, who keeps promising me she will read his books. I would want to know if she likes them, especially this one or Norwegian Wood (hint, Mami). I chose this dress because it’s as simple and elegant and fluid as Murakami’s work. The entire dress is mesh, which is a change for Mami, who prefers to work with prims or prims and mesh. I loved how she translated the movement of sheer scarves into the mesh pieces that wrap around.
My pretty shoes and jewelry are both featured at La Metallique Fair. AvaGardner Kungler has made a beautiful collection of jewelry for the fair with geometric gems in elegant gold contemporary settings. My elegant high heels are Senzati0n Domenitzo’s metallic contribution. I love that she makes her great designs for Slink feet now!
I found this simple updo from Minami Susanowa for a touch of elegance. Sometimes that’s all that is needed, as sometimes a simple aphorism or description will do in literature (Murakami again). Finally, Belleza is having a big sale to retire skins, and they are priced at 100L each. This is one such skin and I wore it in this blog to show my dear readers that they are well worth it. This is the first I put on from the Shyla line and it’s still flawless with beautiful features. You won’t look “out of date” or “old.” Tricky’s work holds up!
“The human heart is like a night bird. Silently waiting for something, and when the time comes, it flies straight toward it.” ~ Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
