A different kind of summer

At some point in our lives we have all lost something or someone close to our hearts. These dark times challenges us to fight and become stronger. It may seem like a long and cold winter but after some time though, you’ll learn to live with it. Summer will come and you WILL have happy and beautiful moments.

A different kind of Summer

With these pictures I am trying to portray this sentiment. Things we have lost, the hurt we have been through, even though different for everyone, they stay with us all during our lives and might even show. Physical and emotional scars that can’t be seen but are there in our souls.
These are part of life and now also part of us, it will make us stronger. It will let us think more, think deeper, appreciate life and people more. Challenges pushes us to be a better person. Broken into pieces but you can still rebuild yourself into something stronger that you were hopefully.

 

We learn to adapt and build a place for hurt and lessons learned (sometimes the hard way) and replace it with something new that makes us feel better. Who knows, maybe in your journey you might even find something beautiful and uniquely yours that you could have never found had things went the other way. These ‘ things’ are the light at the end of the tunnel.

In some time you will have a flashback on how broken you were and be proud of how you persevered through it all.

This is a sim that gives artists a place to show their art. General info I got via notecard at my visit says that depending on the goals a quarter or half of the sim will can be set available for artists to use.
This time, which is also my first (but not last time) visiting the sim the theme is The Pillars: Four Moments of Contemplation.
I will share a little bit of the information I got from a notecard at the sim:
The Pillars: Four Moments of Contemplation
A “forest” of vertical mounds is inhabited by four avatars, each enclosed in a unique soundscape and constrained to a single animation. A plain white chair beside each avatar invites the viewer to sit and contemplate each small scene.
Oberon Onmura has been making art in Second Life for many years. In that time, his unique approach to exploring the capabilities of physical objects has attracted international attention of blog sites, Second Life and “real life” galleries, and publications. Oberon cites as his primary influences American minimalist art of the 1960s and 70s for its precision of form and materials, Stephen Wolfram’s “A New Kind of Science” for its analysis of complex systems, and Indian classical music for its manifestation of unseen physical reality in art. Oberon is a member of the Coppelia artist group.
Thanks for reading!
