"Into The Deep" by Bambi Chicque

“Into The Deep” by Bambi Chicque

Let’s swim to a place we have never been before

We’ll search for coins in a treasured cove

Listen to ocean waves under the tides

Collect seashells and discover Captain Kidd’s pride

And float about with nowhere to hide

This is what we mermaids love to do

Ocean-loving and fun-splashing

We are half fish and half lady

And the sailors find us quite dashing

With a siren glimpse

Into the deep

Where pearls are natural

Forty feet below

Our mystical beauty

You will always bestow

by Bambi Chicque

"Ethereal Dory" by Bambi Chicque

“Ethereal Dory” by Bambi Chicque

♒❊☸❊♒

On the last day of November in 1842
The ship Isidore stood ready to sail with sixteen men in her crew
When up spoke a sailor named Thomas King saying “Captain, hear my tale”
I have had a terrible dream, I fear that we should not sail.

With a phantom crew in the misty light, they walk ‘mid the frozen sails
And they tell of the wreck of the Isidore when the old men tell their tales
And sometimes when the moon is dark and the snow flies on the sea
The fisherman say that a ghost ship sails those waters cold and free.

So we sing once more of the Isidore, of the cold New England sea
Where the hand of fate and a sailor’s life forever twined shall be.

                                 Partial lyrics to “The Great Sad River”

                                 (*giggles* It’s really a long song! Lol )

♒❊☸❊♒

Hunger Games

"Hunger Games" by Bambi Chicque

“Hunger Games” by Bambi Chicque

HUNGER GAMES

Seemingly stepping into the days of past

A hunger crawls over my frail bones

I hunt the birds of prey

And thank the life of the sea

For they feed my soul and

My maw with lesser moans

By night I’m abundant

And celebrate by dance

But then there’s tomorrow

To ushers a new unknown

By Bambi Chicque

The talk of the town is the BOX O’ BONES

by Pucca Firecaster’s Creations created for

Mystic Realms Faire!

Want to hideaway and sleep inside?

Touch the rope and the bone door opens.

Clever and perfect in every way!

♒♈♒

I am such a fan of EMO-tions clothing, hair and accessories…

so……..

I felt her new XANA was perfect to dance in while

cleaning off all the bones spewed upon my beach!

I created this flute myself for the shot ~ If anyone wants one,

just let me know!

*ALSO:  I prepared a close-up pic of XANA

and Sancia Hair to post right after this……

OUT OF AFRICA

OUT OF AFRICA Logo

I have a great affinity for all things Africa!

In fact, my Bucket List includes a real life trip to Cape Town where I plan to visit 2 families of special friends (with whom I have known for 20 years) who will arrange a Photography Safari Adventure.  So, in the mean time I thought I’d take you within the African depths of Second Life and show you some of my favorite sims that I have visited over the last year or so.

"Eye See Africa" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB "Lamu Dreams"
“Eye See Africa” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB “Lamu Dreams”

We all have done that “search thing” for a theme when we want to find somewhere to explore or shop in Second Life.

And sometimes while shopping we just happen upon that significant matter on the brain; ie: double the pleasure!

My fondness for AnaLee Balut’s designs of ALB LAMU takes me to just that moment when I visit her ALB DREAM FASHION Boutique.

Well, it’s more than a boutique!  Once there, you better set some time on your watch to stay an entire day as there is more than meets the eye with her creations.

"Paint My World Day & Night" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB "Lamu Dreams"
“Paint My World Day & Night” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim by ALB “Lamu Island”

My favorite area is her LAMU ISLAND which blends the Orient & African motif in landscape, building and an array of items to purchase.

You can opt to take the tour upon a friendly donkey or do what I did:

"And They Follow" by Bambi Chicque ~ ALB Sim "ASPIRE HEIGHTS & LAMU DREAMS"
“And They Follow” by Bambi Chicque ~ ALB Sim “ASPIRE HEIGHTS & LAMU ISLAND”

(Well I actually did both! teehee!)

I visit her sim often since I am a thrilled member of her group and receive notices for their new items, group gifts and special events.

One of my many visits was back in February 2013 where I decided to begin my lifelong personal hunt for African and Jungle Themed sims to photograph for my photography series I am creating for a special project.

And thus begins my account of Out Of Africa…

"Prayer For Journey" by Bambi Chicque ~ Clothing by ALB "Jade"
“Prayer For Journey” by Bambi Chicque ~ Clothing by ALB “Jade”

“The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon at night. The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil. He shall preserve thy soul.

The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in. From this time forth and even forevermore.”  Amen.

One must daydream a little when speculating upon a theme to photograph and write about.  It takes more than a day; wait…more than a month;…wait much more sometimes to bring the tale alive.

So I sat in ALB’s Dream Globe many a time – (and have purchased it for my own meditations ~ it’s only $100 Linden!)

I searched through my Second Life Photography files for moments in time where I engaged upon such African and Jungle matters.  I remember going to the PATRON sim with my ex-business partner, Gopu, as he wanted to buy an extravagant Christmas Tree for our palace (where else other than Patron??).  We found it to be another unique sim where you can visit to purchase lustful items as well as exploring their creative ambient locale.

"The Elephant Trail" by Bambi Chicque ~ Patron Sim
“The Elephant Trail” by Bambi Chicque ~ Patron Sim

By 1Gent :

the elephant trail

We lived by the legends, held fast the songs
We carved the land and painted the ancient rocks
We walked the plains and we drove the rains under thundered sky
These are the tales that keep memories alive 
These are the rhythms, to which our souls arrive.
Seek and be sought
Old father holds son, reminds him all he taught
Seek and be sought.
Walk now and fast, follow the elephant trail
These herds are not your own.
Walk now and fast, journey the elephant trail
These herds are not your own.
Walk now and fast, journey lone
Find and make your herd on the elephant trail.

 I have continued my quest for the African zill and recently ventured onto a magnificent sim with my friend Vian….I spent at least 2 days or more exploring and taking photographs for my collection….

"Freedom Walks In Sunshine" by Bambi Chicque
“Freedom Walks In Sunshine” by Bambi Chicque

Quote from the movie “Out Of Africa”:

“The time you won your town the race…
we cheered you through the marketplace.
Man and boy stood cheering by…
as home we brought you, shoulder high.
Smart lad, to slip betimes away… 
from fields where glory does not stay
Early though the laurel grows…
it withers quicker than a rose…….

…Now you will not swell the rout…
of lads that wore their honors out.
Runners whom renown outran…
and the name died…
before the man……

“Home With No Doors” by Bambi Chicque ~ Pose by F*ing Ninjas ~ Clothing by EMO-tions

….. And round that early laureled head…
will flock to gaze the strengthless dead…
and find unwithered on its curls…  
a garland…
briefer than a girl’s………. 

"Rasps In The Grasslands" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven
“Rasps In The Grasslands” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven

….. Now take back the soul of Denys George Finch Hatton…
whom You have shared with us.  
He brought us joy…  
and we loved him well. 
He was not ours,
He was not mine.

"Pulse Of Africa" by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim:  Jungle Starhaven
“Pulse Of Africa” by Bambi Chicque ~ Sim: Jungle Starhaven

If I know a song of Africa…  
of the giraffe…   
and the African new moon lying on her back…
of the plows in the fields…
and the sweaty faces of the coffee pickers…
does Africa know a song of me?   
Will the air over the plain quiver…
with a color that I have had on? 
Or will the children invent a game…
in which my name is?
Or the full moon throw a shadow…
over the gravel of the drive…
that was like me? 
Or will the eagles of the Ngong Hills look out for me?
