Get Right With God

Get down with him

grwg1procSm

I would risk the serpent’s bite
I would dance around with seven
I would kiss the diamond back
If I knew it would get me to heaven

grwg2procSM

‘Cause I want to get right with God
Yes, you know you got to get right with God

grwg5procSm

I would burn the soles of my feet
Burn the palms of both my hands
If I could learn and be complete
If I could walk righteously again

grwg4procSm

I would sleep on a bed of nails
‘Till my back was torn and bleeding
In the deep darkness of Hell
The Damascus of my meeting

grwg6procSm

I asked God about his plan
To save us all from Satan’s slaughter
If I give up one of my lambs
Will you take me as one of your daughters?

grwg3procSm

‘Cause I want to get right with God
Yes, you know you got to get right with God

Fashion Drawing ~ Michele Wesen Bryant

by Grady Echegaray, 26 May, 2011

In January of 2010, I was approached by Michele Wesen Bryant

with a view to using a couple of images of my SL avatar

in a book she was writing about fashion illustration.

At the time, I felt excited, but also that this was likely to be a “fire and forget” situation.

I did not doubt that the book would be published, but was by no means sure

that at the end of the day, my pictures wouldn’t end up on the editing room floor.

In any case I thought, it all may turn out, but even if it did,

it would be some time in the misty far off future.

Well, yesterday that misty far off future became the delightful present day.

Not only was the book published, and not only were 2 of my images used,

but the author and publisher were most gracious and sent me a complimentary copy.

Michele, congratulations on the publication of your outstanding book

and my thanks and sincere appreciation for the lovely copy of it!

(I hope you sell a gazillion! XD)

Requiem

How shall I explain the dying that was done?

snapshot_013-copy

Shall I say that each one did the math, and wrote the value of their days
against the bloody margin, in an understated hand?

snapshot_038-copy

They will want to know, how was the audit done?

snapshot_002-copy

And I shall say that it was done, for once,

by those who knew the worth

of what was spent that day.

Exile

So they have left me here.

snapshot_024

On a little island.

snapshot_026

With a little stone house.

snapshot_021

For four years.

snapshot_007

Because I dueled with a silly mademoiselle…

snapshot_009

…who happened to be the daughter of Le Comte d’Auvergne.

snapshot_013

So I read my books, and watch for a sail that does not come.

snapshot_022

Of a time in the evening I greet the moon.

snapshot_023

Such is exile.
