2011: A Look Back

Hard to believe that 2012 is almost upon us. It’s been a whirlwind of a year for me but I have loved every minute of it. I started this little blog just over a year ago with a mixture of delight and terror in my heart albeit a little more fear than excitement. It has most certainly been an adventure for me and I haven’t for one second regretted it. Even though sometimes this blog has been difficult to maintain with my busy RL schedule

Not far into my blogging venture I stumbled upon Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of color challenge. It couldn’t even begin to explain how helpful it was to me as a start up blogger. Not only has it been fun to participate it gave me sometime to post every week without having to dig too far into my brain for something to blog. And the challenge taught me so much about blogging and taking pictures in second life. You can see my 15 favorites from the challenge here. I’m so excited that round 2 starts after the new year! Also the blogger’s challenge put me in touch with wonderful people who are part of the SL blogging community.

Here is a look back at my top 10  favorite photos/posts from the past year in no particular order:

Light Meets Dark

ETERNAL BALANCE by Kinode
The lines of day dissolve into the night
as twilight comes to whisper upon the eyes;
the white of day melts
into the black of night
and what is seen becomes the unseen.

The sun falls from the limitless sky
and enters a new world of the eyes;
it passes the line of what is known
and enters the world of the unknown.

The sun’s golden rays of light fade
and the breath of night comes to reign;
the wondrous stars whisper the divine
and the moon speaks of the reasons why.

The day knows the sublime lines of night
and the night knows the wondrous ways of day;
they both breathe the same spirit of life
and sing the same song of eternal balance.

The one heart beats wildly and freely
in the flesh and blood of night and day,
and their reason and rhyme forever flows
from the same breath and soul.

For what is unknown can be known
and what is unseen can be seen;
the eyes of grey speak of eternal balance
and breathe in the breath of the spirit.

❤ Aya
