It’s been less than two weeks since I declared radio silence. In that time my human has packed up our lives and we’ve embarked on a journey through the real world.
How many times have I quoted T.S. Eliot, “Our beginnings never know their ends”? Well, that’s how it was and it has never been truer.
It was Leanna who got me thinking about how on a long journey you have time for quality thought as the miles race by. And that was very true. One other thing I discovered, not only can my human become immersed in my world, but for the first time I became immersed in my human’s world.
There was even an adventure on this journey, an adventure that caused my closest friends to lecture me sternly against ever doing again. It involved picking up a hitch hiker, a guy, at a small gas station in Wyoming. It wasn’t a romantic thing and, yes, it could have been dangerous but he and I travelled almost 400 miles together. For me, it was an amazing journey through some very rugged territory and a fascinating conversation with a kindred spirit. It was even educational. I’ll be writing more about it in iRez magazine soon.
My journey to a new life was a journey through space and time, but also a journey into a new sense of reality and identity.
Shakes head and scolds you….. again. LOL
I know Miss LeLe… but you should read about him and then you’ll understand. Check my post on iRez. You’ll see.
OMG “The Hitcher” — who can’t wait for this one!!!
omg… i hope i’m not stuck with that title! but omg, it’s a good one.
I love quality of thought on long journeys, it’s why I like riding trains across country.
Picking up hitchhikers in Wyoming is quite different than doing so near inner cities. Did you see the parts of that state that look like other planets.
I kind of don’t understand right now how how an avatar can get immersed in her human’s world and am looking forward to your iRez post.
Hi Pearl… I think you hit the nail on the head, picking up hitchhikers out in the expanse is very different than the inner city. I’m sorry to say that I didn’t get to see a lot of the state though. I’ll explain the whole avatar immersed thing in iRez, but until this trip the identity I’ve created as an avatar was an extract of my total identity. It’s a bit crazy what happened and we’ll have to see how the iRez post turns out. hehe. I never really know until it’s done.
