My friends know I’ve been struggling for a few months; meaning, I haven’t been very happy. But I’ve also been spending some of my time sailing and motoring out on the Blake Sea.
Anyway, on a recent boating journey into the far eastern regions I noticed there’s a northeasterly passage to the New England region. In fact, the entire northeastern region is a network of amazing islands and open water sims. There are also several sims with businesses and entertainment, but most of those islands are residences.
The brilliancy of this region is that it is governed by strong covenants and rules. The result is one of the most beautiful themed regions in Second Life. As I was looked at my charts (sailor talk for maps… hehe), I noticed there were no sims available, but I couldn’t afford a sim anyway, so I didn’t expect to ever live there. Then I notice a new development on a sim called Martha’s Vineyard.
Without gushing with Wows and whoas and way cools (oops, guess I just did gush), I saw at once that this was where I could really start a new second life. So, I bought a plot and am modifying a little cottage right away. And I was also totally surprised to learn that Dreamgirl (the Junkyard girls’ secret society… hehe) Sommer Sheperd was a member of the management team there. Here are some pics of my new home.
Much of my past second life has revolved around my Zen garden. And I’ve done a lot of soul searching in these difficult months, asking myself, can I build a new Zen garden? The answer is, I just don’t know but for now, all of my resources are going into my place at Martha’s Vineyard. I also learned that it isn’t smart to make any long term decisions here in Second Life; things just change so much each day.
For now, this is the start of a new life for Yordie Sands. And btw, can you imagine a cooler address, Martha’s Vineyard in Second Life! Is that not cool or what?
Naturally, this isn’t the last I’ll be posting about the New England region. This is a whole new world for me to explore and my sense of wanderlust is calling me to the sea.
