Walking the wilderness

4 The dried up stream bed passed beneath Nahuel's feet without the slightest sound. Blades of grass folded, succumbing to his weight; twigs bent and stone ground against stone under him, muffled to muteness by the movement of his body, never erring, lithe on shoeless feet. He had come this way without thinking, no particular quarry in mind. The kills the previous day would feed the camp for at least another. Walking alone through the dawn was his intention, silently wandering through new territory to see what could be seen.
Not everything could hope to be so silent. In the stillness, the glow of golden early morning light seemed to dance on every surface it touched. Vibrations of light, such as a finely tuned ear could almost hear. Something caught his attention, the feeling and sensation of movement, though none could be seen when he turned his head to look. Out here, for the most part he was predator, not prey, that was the better part of the balance, the way it had been for most of his life. Times when strangers came were few, they had never left, but become part of their group, or had chosen a different path, taking nothing of themselves with them but spirit. Spirits seemed to move from fading to lingering shadows, something was walking with him in the glade.

Happy Easter!

Breaking the egg shell from the inside was hard work. She had been hitting and pummelling on the white china-like surface for hours... then, finally, she was rewarded by a tiny cracking noise. She continued in frenzy. Her fingertips were aching, but it didn't matter at all. She wanted to find a way out of the shell that had been her home for months, but recently became tight and restrictive. There was no sufficient place inside for a grown and winged creature any more... so she had to break free, and find her own space, soaring among the clouds.

Dove - Happy Easter!
The items I'm showing you here are from past events I intended to blog, but a recent stay in the hospital didn't allow me to realise my plans as I originally hoped. Better later than never, I'm wishing you Happy Easter now, with a few amazing items from some of my preferred creators in SL.

Skin: "Thalassa" by Fallen Gods Inc. for the last Verne-themed "A Tattered Page" event. I don't know whether this beautiful blue skin will be available at Selidor, but if you're in urgent need of another similar item, please pay a visit to the Fallen Gods shop notwithstanding... I'm quite certain you'll find something that catches your imagination.
Hair: "Healy" by TableauVivant for the last round of The Arcade Gacha event. As merchants aren't authorised any more to sell their prizes at any later time after a round closes, I'm afraid this amazing hair is now gone for good.
Outfit: "The Seven Sins - Greed" by Faida and Fallen Gods Inc. - 380 L$. I'm truly and really happy that Alia Baroque and Titania Halasy have decided to continue their collaboration! The fruits of their joined efforts are many already, among which this marvellous gown originally created for The Countdown Room. The sins are seven, so are the colours available, so please visit Titanias's shop or Alia's place, and pick the sin closest to your heart... but be warned, it won't be an easy job. :)
Bracelets: Finesmith - a past group gift not available any more.
Pose: "Elf" by HelaMiyo - 150 L$. The pose set was a special donation item for the Fashion for Life event, now available in the main shop, with the proceeds still going to the American Cancer Society.

The picture was taken at Un Jour, a rebuilt version of the emblematic sim "Embryo".
