I know it’s called ‘the fall’, rather logically, elsewhere, but here in Merrie Olde England it’s ‘forever autumn’.
Any excuse to work in a rather wonderful autumnal video of a song by Justin Hayward, really.
I’m a big Moody Blues fan. I know they aren’t fashionable in ‘cool’ circles, but they still speak volumes to me. Of course, I can practically remember ‘Nights in White Satin’ when it was first issued.
Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
Watch lights fade from every room.
Bedsitter people look back and lament,
Another day’s useless energy spent.
Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
Lonely man cries for love and has none.
New mother picks up and suckles her son,
Senior citizens wish they were young.
Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
Removes the colours from our sight.
Red is grey and yellow white.
But we decide which is right.
And which is an illusion?
Autumn, or Fall, is wonderful in Second Life. I’m not such a fan of the wall-to-wall overindulgence in Hallowe’en, but I adore sim builders efforts to bedeck photogenic sims in autumnal colours.
One such sim is Small Town Cafe which looks utterly beguiling right now, and I’ve had the opportunity to do a photoshoot there with a new model, ‘mature’ Swedish avatar Ingeborg, who really excelled herself in a lengthy session. I thank her for her patience and good humour!
