I feel I must apologise publicly for my prolonged absence. I can at least assure my readers –and do feel free to pass this on to any who you feel should know– that I've been doing wonderfully, having a grand adventure: at times glorious, at others melancholy, but I would not trade these escapades for the world. Having been lucky enough, so far, to stave off the expiry of my meter –and to keep my garden from becoming completely overgrown– I have been compelled to drastically curtail my time in Caledon otherwise. Regrettably, I cannot say when another substantive piece of news will be available from

Curse the slow rezzing. I figured I would take this holiday to visit something beautiful without too many in-world. Sigh. From Dvora Tardis via http://blogHUD.com

Steampunk Dressing: Oh I know, these aren't terribly wintry duds. But I'm going out to the mainland to do some shopping, so I thought I'd play with some recent acquisitions. In the finest Fashion Blogger tradition, here is what I'm wearing: Shoes: Shiny Things, Old Boots (for men) - I have size 36 feet and don't fit her women's shoes. Stockings, Skirt, Tails, Gloves: Silent Sparrow, iris Corset: Steamstress, Copper Rivets Bodice Jacket: Silent Sparrow, artemisia (viridian) shrug From Dvora Tardis via http://blogHUD.com

1st Excerpt:
... I cannot promise (though I will try) to deliver this message in person before your European Travels, as I have had a rather provoking flare-up of my chronic complaint of "RL". Regrettably, I simply must take the next couple of days as "homework triage" days. I will write again, if I am kept away for an extended period, though I admit that I foresee a somewhat urgent need to give greater attentions to my studies than I have, of late, done. As you are no doubt aware, an SL session usually swells past its intended time limit, thus making rather a "ten o'clock scholar" out of

Your good friend,

2nd Excerpt:
Hehe, the frocks fund. The thing is that I don't have many Photoshop skills yet, to translate designs into Linden shapes, nor many ideas for new designs. Did I tell you I spent nearly an entire 512-mainland-sale, i.e. a bit more than $3000, the day I went exploring in the tunnels under Silent Sparrow? Probably foolish, but I am now outfitted for the next few seasons! (= I usually wear any given new frock for a week or two of logging in, until I tire of it, and then once I've run through them, I mix and match them, so they should now last me well into the spring. It's not something that can become a regular occurence of course, given my finances, but boy was it fun.

Though, I also think that my income has increased just slightly since the New Search, which I hope is not merely a fluke. If I can make it in-world for any length of time this coming week, I expect to show some of those Alice in Wonderland illustration-reproductions at Mr Whittlesea's Commons in Eyre.

Speaking of which story, do tune in to Radio Riel (music.radioriel.org) or come down to the station in Penzance one of these evenings, if you can. They're playing an audiobook of Alice, and hearing it read aloud, with pacing and voices, has made a lot of the material fresh again for me. Having read so much of it so often over so long, I had forgotten how ridiculous some of the conversations really do sound!

A typical domestic scene, after a long day of dissatisfied shopping for shoes in stores that sell only for bound-foot-sizes. At least I procured a hairdressing visit during the course of the search. From Dvora Tardis via http://blogHUD.com

I've moved my shop to Porcupine, up north, cleared the land and smoothed it over. Set it for sale to a local developer who is making some lovely parkland... From Dvora Tardis via http://blogHUD.com

Basic Gorinto Stupa
Originally uploaded by dvora.tardis
For sale at SLexchange.com in a meter-and-a-half height, but made for my own garden, since I couldn't find any for sale. A half-meter tall version is sitting behind my garden bench "In memoriam Buder felis". That's a pun, son. I could have tried to decline his name, but didn't want to diminish the pun.
