The Beginnings of Autumn in Hyde by Jas (Blog 32)

September 19, 2012 • News

“It came to me that Hyde Park has never belonged to London – that it has always been, in spirit, a stretch of countryside; and that it links the Londons of all periods together most magically – by remaining forever unchanged at the heart of a ever-changing town.”

Dodie Smith 1948

This blog is a selection of quotes about Hyde Park (along with some pics I have taken of our Second Life version) to whet your appetite for Autumn. I think you`ll agree that our park in the London Sims can help create the same atmosphere as the real-life one – perhaps for love or even just for some reflective contemplation.

“Just a perfect day
Drink Sangria in the park
And then later when it gets dark,
we go home….Just a perfect day
You made me forget myself…

…I thought I was someone else- someone good”  Lou Reed 1972

“Hyde Park engendered shadows.The dying greenery of hurtbushes and larches,under the grey shells of clouds, that now begin to snap with rain, caught that feeble light in London, At neither night nor day but rather that feeble compromise which, more than the presage of autumn, filled one with a sense of long-forgotten things and showed itself to be that time when vague yearnings and regrets began to cumber the soul.”                          Louis Theroux 1972
