OMG!!! Yes, I did take a break from SL as things were hectic at work and I was not in the mood for SL… It also gave me the chance to reflect on my second life and I have decided that despite the bad things that have happened since I first logged in as a SL avi, there have been good things/times too, and I won’t be giving up on SL just yet!
To kick start my return to blogging, I am doing week 14 of Luna Jubilee’s 52 weeks of colour. This time it’s Black.
Black is the color of objects that do not emit or reflect light in any part of the visible spectrum; they absorb all such frequencies of light. Although black is sometimes described as an “achromatic”, or hueless, color, in practice it can be considered a color, as in expressions like “black cat” or “black paint”.
And it has a fascinating etymology … Black comes from Old English blæc (“black, dark”, also, “ink”), from Proto-Germanic *blakkaz (“burned”), from Proto-Indo-European *bhleg- (“to burn, gleam, shine, flash”), from base *bhel- (“to shine”), related to Old Saxon blak (“ink”), Old High German blah (“black”), Old Norse blakkr (“dark”), Dutch blaken (“to burn”), and Swedish bläck (“ink”). More distant cognates include Latin flagrare (“to blaze, glow, burn”), and Ancient Greek phlegein (“to burn, scorch”). Black supplanted the wonted Old English word sweart (“black, dark”), which survives as swart, swarth, and swarthy (compare German schwarz and Dutch zwart, “black”).
However, in fashion…. You can go all gothy and dress in black from head to toe, or use black to emphasise/contrast a companion colour, as in black & yellow on a bumblebee. I have decided that the cute little jacket I got from izm a few weeks ago would be the perfect thing for my blackness, with the pale pink ruffle trim.
