Yesterday was an amazing day for me on many levels, but the most unique part of the day was when expert balloonist Dahlia “Sweet” Jayaram dropped by my new house for a look-see. Dahlia is very familiar with the entire New England region including the period when Nantucket sank into oblivion (check her comments in earlier blog post).
Anyway, after showing her the house and dock and such, she asked if I’d seen Sudane Erato’s sim. Sudane is the owner of this entire sim group, and although I’d had a couple IM exchanges with her, I hadn’t met her or seen her sim. It turns out though, Dahlia is a good friend of Sudane and suggested we go take a look at her sim. I assumed she meant teleport but in a matter of seconds she had rezzed her famous balloon and said, “Hop in.”
We slowly rose over my plot and before I could get my camera focused we were on our way. First stop was to be the town at Marblehead.
I don’t think you have to be a gung ho explorer to appreciate a large sim group like New England. And I’ve been thinking a lot about large sim groups lately; I mean, knowing that there’s more just over the next sim is a wonderful feeling. And here there is a network of sims beautifully terraformed and landscaped, and there is that southerly passage all the way to the heart of the Blake Sea. This is what it takes to truly be a Wonder of Second Life.
Thank you Dahlia for a wonderful adventure.
