One of the more interesting things about being part of a global community like Second Life is listening to the talk of time zones and seasons. Who hasn’t had that experience of saying good night just as another is saying good morning? It’s much the same with seasons. For some it’s currently spring, and though technically my calendar would concur, there is more snow outside my window today than most get over the entire winter.
It’s not just the weather that varies for those who are experiencing spring; it’s the vision or feel of the season that is unique to each of us. For some spring is tulips and bunnies and all things green. For me, spring is a muted inconsistent thing. One brave tree might have the greenish hint of new life as it begins to leaf out while the one next to it is by all appearances dead, its skeletal branches a reminder that winter has not yet left the building.
As you walk in a clearing the sun is warm on your face, tempting you to remove your jacket, tricking you into wearing summer shoes but when you turn a corner there are the patches of snow lingering in the shade daring you to walk through them into seasons past.
Nostos Deer captures that look of spring perfectly to me. The patches of snow merging with grass not yet quite fully green; the bravest of buds appearing on trees next to the remains of those who have not yet announced their intentions. The only part of spring missing from the scene is a dress, no, THE dress. You see spring was announced in our family when my mother bought me a new dress for Easter mass. I can’t really feel or see spring without one, but thanks to the new release from coldLogic I am prepared to announce the arrival of spring.

I used this same outfit and location for my Single Frame Story entry this week, but I’m going to split that into another post as this one already feels a bit long. Stay tuned!
