“Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence.
Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance.
Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence.
Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.”
― Yoko Ono
Once again winter is upon the north hemisphere. Despite an unusually warm end of the year holiday season, 2022 has come in with a vengeance for many. Just as some begin to recognize that global warming is not a myth, the quick turn around in January filled the need for some to say it was just a fluke and it’s just as cold as ever. Memories are short. Perseverance often serves only when it’s convenient, or when it’s necessary. I won’t even mention the perseverance of political lies… This image was in Le Monde Perdu of Second Life. The group of sims that are Luane’s world are always beautiful and inspiring. This winter phase of Le Monde Perdu did not disappoint. The aurora borealis and falling snow were added in photoshop and the light was twisted just a bit to keep some detail on the mountain but the sim is a joy without these touches.
