I’m tired. I’ve been running fast in recent weeks with ups & downs, highs & lows. Between fundraisers and Junkyard Dreamgirls Pajama Party, I’ve met new friends and enjoyed aspects of Second Life that I wouldn’t have experienced otherwise. It’s been great, but there have been other things happening that weren’t so amazing.
Second Life is on an accelerated time cycle — we all know this — even when you aren’t, and you can get swept away so easily and not even notice. The good thing about keeping a journal is you can take a look back and see how your life ebbs and flows. That’s what I did this morning, look back. So, I need to slow down or take a break from SL for awhile.
It would be cool if you could sign aboard a ship and sail across a virtual ocean for a few weeks. It could take hundreds or thousands of sims, but imagine just leaving your avie in-world, then returning in the evening to join the crew and sail westerly into the sunset. The Junkyard has a good start on this, maybe if we could sail up to Nantucket or Sailors Cove. Maybe it’s just fun to think about.
