{Silver Threads} Ends and Beginnings


Alas, this is the final two poses from my collaboration with Peter. As the third of the fates, Atropos is in charge of cutting the threads of life, thus cutting the connections  they have with others. However, these threads fall back into the web, and they are redone, recreated and re-connected, often over many lifetimes. So, if you have ever wondered why one suddenly connects with another person, that instant attraction.. or when you hold your child and she looks into your eyes and you swear you've known her since before she was born.. or, when you take your loved one's hand and you know.. they have been there before.. this is why; these Silver Threads of Fate that weave us into being.

Thank you Peter for making my ideas a reality :)

Silver Threads: Life's Measurements


Continuing on with my riff about the threads that connect us all, this represents the measurement of those threads.. how each one connects but also ends, and how the concept of Fate comes into play. Is our end predetermined? Or, is it something that happens randomly? For each of us there is a story to be written and told, and intermingled in that story are many threads which will come to us and be there for a moment or a lifetime or somewhere in between. Those connections never end. They come back to us over many lifetimes, in various forms, for us to understand and learn that Love is the only connection that matters…

Thank you to PeterJackson for making this pose a reality :) find it here at Peter's Poses on MP

Namaste :)


{Tales of the Dark Angel} My Kingdom Come

The night was quiet…she had become accustomed to the absence of sounds, and was acutely aware of anything that did make a noise.
Demons were notorious for being loud and usually rather clumsy, but the one she had been hunting were unusually cunning. She had to leave this town and find some allies, and she knew just where to start and who to find.
As she slowly walked down the empty road towards the edge of town, the fog became thick and increasingly heavy. She could sense danger, and kept her senses open to the surroundings.
Crossing the old wooden bridge, she saw the demon at the other end.
He was unlike any she had seen, but the stench of Hell was on him and made her nearly retch. She knew that scent all too well.

Her guns drawn, she stopped and cocked her head to the left,  her lips curled in a small grin, deadly cold eyes fixed on the creature ahead of her. His back was to her, and she released the safety on her weapons. The click made him turn, as she slowly realized who he was.
"Azariel?" she whispered … But you are an angel.. what.. what happened ? 

The one called Azariel turned more, his eyes fixed on her, his tongue slipping past his lips as he bared his fangs slightly.
An angel turned demon.

Tess just stared.

"who did this to you?"

"your God…" he sneered

Then, his eyes changed for a split second, the soul in him showed for one last time as his sneer disappeared, and she saw a tear slip down his cheek… "kill me… " he whispered..

The sound of the gunshot reverberated through the valley.
She saw his body collapse, and the demonic form disappeared, leaving behind the angel's body, her old friend..

"this is our kingdom come…" she whispered.. leaning down to take a feather form his wings.

Walking away as his body disappeared, she didn't turn back, she just kept her eyes forward.
This had just become personal…

{Tales of the Dark Angel} The Demon Awakes



"So it was that Tess knew she would have to let the demon she'd been keeping inside lose.. the only way to hunt a demon sometimes was to.. be.. a demon. Shedding her new name and going back to her old identity, she found peace in the dark, the night.. and in the shadows that held fear for most.
For her, they were solace. Old friends come to keep her company… for when the beast is inside, there's no where left to hide.. "

Silver Threads: The Casting


This is my first post since I decided to take a little break, and I wanted to start off with talking about connections. In SL as in our everyday lives, we make connections, often they are brief, sometimes not so, and there are many variations in between. I've always wondered what is it that attracts people to each other, and what is it that keeps us connected. Why do we feel like we know someone when we've just met them? Why do we meet the people we do? Perhaps the answer lies in the ancient concept of the Fates:  Clotho, the spinner, who spins the thread of life. Lachesis, the measurer, who choses the lot in life one will have and measures off how long it is to be. Atropos, she who cannot be turned, who at death with her shears cuts the thread of life. 
These threads are connected to each of us, and we in turn are connected to each other. Some threads are stronger than others, and some connections are never broken. This idea of the the delicate silver threads that weave into and out of our lives through out time is fascinating to me... in this I hoped to do a set of three images that spoke to those threads. 
With a big thanks to PeterJackson who so kindly offered to create these poses for me. You can find the Silver Threads pose on MP, and two more will be coming your way.. and who knows? maybe even more :) 
Thank you Peter for your help in realizing this image. 
Namaste
xoxo

Don't think twice before you listen to your heart..


Close your eyes ... it is so clear
Here's the mirror, behind there is a screen
On both ways you can get in.
Don't think twice before you listen to your heart,
Follow the trace for a new start.
