Despondent and exhausted after days of looking for the solution to the riddle (to me as a non-English speaker) of what periwinkle truly truly is and after travelling through the metaverse to find the perfect dress, I was happy when my always compassionate, loving Unicorn (from +Studio Sidhe+) came to the rescue and carried me home just before the final breakdown.
The week started with me trying to find an easy way out, typing the word periwinkle in the SL marketplace search bar. I found a dress there, but it never felt like anything I would feel right in. Here I am in a moment of complete dissatisfaction.
But the icebear rug (nappy bear) from ANA_MATIONS is marvellously cute.
Then during the Season's Hunt, I went to the wrong place and tp'ed into a land of wonder, the Embryo SIM - home of the Un Jour main store. I there found a treasure trove of the sweet and the poetic.
I'm neither sweet nor poetically minded, but I can see the point in such things when I meet them in such quality.
I found something that looked periwinkly - and enjoyed the natural beauty of virtual nature, while I wondered whether this dress was the right one.
"Yes", I said to myself, "this must be it". I mean, some of this mix of colours must be periwinkle ! I felt a moment of pride at the mission accomplished.
That's me feeling proud.
Of course it did not last long. Doubt set in. Who am I to present a girly, fluffy, cute me. Can I recognize myself in this? Who am I. Can Alexandra take on any identity without losing the respect of her more intellectually minded RL impersonator?
Here I am - in existential pain - just moments before the Unicorn came to the rescue.

This week, I noticed a great Machinima. It pictures a quite tortured relationship between avatar and master. A Journey into the Metaverse is TutsyNavarathna's entry into the University of West Australia Machinima Contest lll
