Hello everyone and Happy Halloween!
As I mentioned in my last update, grad school started back up again and as you can see, I haven’t had the chance to update. It’s actually been very frustrating…not because I never have free-time, because I occasionally do, but because during those small intervals of free-time I just can’t seem to get my brain to write. Maybe my creative writing skills have been temporarily disabled in the face of formulaic writing, endless note-taking, and textbook chapters. Whatever it is, I’m trying not to be too hard on myself because that only makes me feel discouraged and sad….bleh. Inspiration will come eventually…and if it doesn’t on it’s own, I’ll find a way because I’m as determined as ever to continue Different Winters!
In the meantime though, to maybe make up for my extended absence a teeny tiny bit, I have some photo treats to share with you all! ^_^ If you follow me on Tumblr you’ve likely already seen many of these, but in case you don’t or you missed any, I’m posting them here too. Some of the photos are Halloween-themed and some of them aren’t, but I hope you’ll enjoy them regardless. You even get some song lyrics that go with each generation and a sneak preview of a very special sim!
Generation 1: Aubrey and Noah Winters
♫ I’m thinking it’s a sign, that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images, and when
We kiss they’re perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay….
They will see us waving from such great heights,
“Come down now,” they’ll say,
But everything looks perfect from far away,
“Come down now,” but we’ll stay… ♫
Generation 2: Reed and Marina Winters
♫ Mira corazón cuanto te extraño ♫ Look, my love, how much I’m missing you
pasan dias, pasan años Days go by, years go by
y mi vida se revienta and my life bursts
como pompas de jabon like soap bubbles
Como pude haberte yo herido How could I have hurt you?
engañarte y ofendido Cheated on you and offended you?
alma gemela no te olvido Soul-mate, I won’t forget you
aunque me arranque el corazón….. Even if my heart tears in two
El verdadero amor perdona True love forgives
no abandona, no se quiebra It doesn’t abandon, it doesn’t break
no aprisiona, no revienta It doesn’t imprison, it doesn’t burst
como pompas de jabon…. ♫ like soap bubbles….♫
Generation 3: Tamara and Jiang Winters
♫ When all the world is spinning ‘round
Like a red balloon way up in the clouds
And my feet will not stay on the ground
You anchor me back down
I am nearly world renowned
As a restless soul who always skips town
But I look for you to come around
And anchor me back down ♫
Generation 4: James and Candice Winters
♫ In the end all you can hope for
Is the love you felt to equal the pain you’ve gone through
Are your eyes showing off for mine?
Your face in my hands is everything that I need
Bones, starved of flesh
Surround your aching heart
Full of love…. ♫
Generation 5: Joanne and Gabriel Winters
♫ Am I loud and clear, or am I breaking up?
Am I still your charm, or am I just bad luck?
Are we getting closer, or are we just getting more lost?
I’ll show you mine if you show me yours first
Let’s compare scars, I’ll tell you whose is worse
Let’s un-write these pages and replace them with our own words….♫
Sneak Peek (Hey there, Milo!)
Hope you enjoyed these small treats. Have a delightfully sweet and spooky Halloween! ^_^
