In RL, I love to use scarves, either on their own or tied together to make different and atemporal, clothing items depending upon the weather. Yes, I agree, in a previous lifetime, I must have travelled by caravan, translating either as the Bohème that I believe to be or ¨that woman with the quirky sense of style¨ that some, perhaps rightfully, think I am.
As pictured above, we can now do the same in SL. Well, at least sort of. Try this one out and, perhaps you will want to do it in RL too; any beautiful scarf will do!
Sounds like smoking under water, I know, but once you get the hang of it, you´ll say it´s just as easy as riding the next big wave. Did I mention I´ve been dry surfing in RL? I love every minute of it. Have you? Let us know.

A few yards from the Yacht Club, a few meters away,
I still live by the ocean of my youth and my wake.
Salty remnants of water in the air all around
and the sound of the ships waving past as they sail.

From there it changes fabric patterns into Ghee´s abstract rose design which is emblematic of the season. Wooden enamel bracelets in matching colors complete the look.

A few days ago I took to write about the so called Island of Flowers. Well the place actually exists in RL. I feel more at ease in an island environment as a matter of fact, perhaps because three of my four grandparents were born in islands although different ones.
The next day after the blog, I was invited to one of those Saturday dinners with very artsy ¨in the known¨ people. Reluctantly I accepted the invitation. As soon as I walked in I was introduced to a man, more or less my own age, born and raised (complete with heavy accent) in one of the southernmost countries of the Americas.
As the evening progressed we talked a little bit about everything and once in the middle of the main course, I heard somebody say ¨yes, it´s just like all the – insert my mother´s maiden name here.¨
So I ask, excuse me, who mentioned my mother´s maiden name?
The South American elegantly answered – I did! , Well it´s my last name, he said.
– Well it was my mother´s maiden name. I answered as my jaw dropped.
– But … he offered … we are from the Island of Flowers.
– and so are we ! I said.
As it turned out, we were distant and unknown cousins. Sprouting from the descendants of the three Spaniards who came to America way back then.
Our common ancestor settled in the Island of Flowers. The second eldest settled inland … and …
the third? I asked?
– The third, the third, well the third, by consensus, nobody knows.
Correct, nobody knows about the whereabouts of the third indeed.
Meeting each other in another place, another town and time was truly an amazing coincidence. He and I, together with other friends will be going back soon, to visit the plaque were the name of our ancestors as founders of the island settlement still stands. I´m so smiling wide, because teleports aside, sometimes RL can be simply amazing!
