A Dreary Soul Heralds in a Dream of Nimue’s Magic

When we were children magic was very much alive. It surrounded us like light and water in a surreal and ethereal dream of shimmer and color.

The Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and monsters were not just imaginary things. Trolls hid in our closets and under our beds. We played jump across the room, slap the light switch from a distance, and huddle under the covers. I used to imagine that within me was a power I could harness to ‘zap’ away the things that went bump in the night and obliterate them into oblivion. In my mind, I was not a wee child. I was a leviathan of strength — strong, mighty, powerful, and beautiful.

Somewhere along the lines, we grow up. And when you’re a teenager the monsters are supposed to disappear. You know they aren’t in your closet anymore… it’s then you realize they are outside your door. They are, instead, real people with faces. Names. Families of their own. My dreams changed then — as did my outlook. The Tooth Fairy’s wings were crushed into dust… and Santa Claus faded into obscurity as the Grinch stole my Christmas.

It was when I was an adult that I finally understood that not only were the monsters real, but that I did have magic within me that was very real as well. It was not fairy dust or hocus pocus of course. But it was magic nonetheless. It was then that I found harmony within myself.

There is that quote. Something about being afraid of the unknown? It’s when you know that the monsters are real that it becomes okay to sleep with the light off… because you know hold the light to banish them away within the palm of your upturned hand.

Hopping and Hunting in Holy SHIrT, D!va, K-Room and ::YaYo::!!

Greetings!

With Easter just around the corner, I have found all kinds of hunts and sales hopping ALL over SL! Starting with this adorable mesh bunny dress from Holy SHIrT! The dress is FREE as part of the sim wide MC Fashion Stores and Events Easter Egg Hunt…just find the little decorated Easter eggs, placed in the stores and around the sim, click on it and buy the item for 0L! There are TONS of eggs to be found as well as lots of really great deals from the stores on the MC Fashion Stores and Events sim.  I needed something cute to accompany the dress…so I decided to do a little hunting and hopping around the Marketplace.  I found this “My plushie rabbit..with Easter basket” for only 1L…from DramaZone!

I also found these *Paint Special* Easter2013 Bunneh Ears, from K-Room, for only 1L.
~Hopping into Easter~I finished off this look with the ::YaYo:: – Bunny Face & Stripes – Dollarbie…just 1L from ::YaYo::.  My gorgeous hair is a previous Lucky Board prize, Nana (Ruby) limited color, from “”D!va” Hair.  Not to worry…there are always fantastic styles up fro grabs in the “”D!va”” Lucky Boards and NO group join is required.  The color is limited to the Ruby I have on…but is is sooooooooo sweet, it’s a fun color for spring and a great way to try out this fabulous designer’s hair.  You can also join the “”D!va”” group for free and you will find quite a few group gifts on the second floor!
