SparrowSong_FotoSketcherIt’s Thanksgiving in the United States, where my typist lives and she’s celebrating. She makes her own holiday traditions when possible, lately liking Thanksgiving-in-a-jar. That’s a Mason jar filled with a layer each of turkey, cranberry sauce, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy. Today I’m posting a couple of photos each from three of my favorite sims .Athan Selidor_1The first is Alia Baroque’s Athan Selidor.

By the way, I’ve just discovered Fotosketcher from reading about it on Eddi Haskell’s blog. It’s fun to play with but I certainly won’t be using it a lot here. My new header and the top photo of the kittens in the pumpkins (taken at Sparrow Song) are edited in a watercolor from Fotosketcher.  Athan Selidor_2Near to Athan Selidor is Anon Beyond the Gate.  Gulf of Lune_1The second sim is Gulf of Lune.Gulf of Lune_2Gulf of Lune is part of the Calas Galadhon park system. There’s lovely winter in other areas of the park.Roche_003And last but not least is RocheRoche_004These have been around a while and were among the first places I visited after finding my way out of newbie hell. I love them.

The title of this post is from the film My Old Lady. That’s one of the best movies I’ve seen in a while. There were some moments during when I worried it was going to get too dark and depressing but then it lightened up and had a most satisfactory ending. An old apartment building with a garden in Paris, Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline. Lovely!

Even with many humans behaving unconsciously and badly, there are others making art, music, films, stories, virtual worlds and generally demonstrating hope, kindness and generosity. Lots to be appreciative of.
