Life Changes

My Second Life has been non-existent now for almost two years. In the real world there has been a great deal of change lately.

For one thing, I’m about to move to the other side of Canada – that’s about 5,600 kilometres away from my life for the past 20 years.

I’ve been told that I’ll have satellite internet when I get there – um, that could definitely postpone any return to the virtual world.

I want to thank all of you who have followed and encouraged me. If you’re curious about my real life adventures (and whether or not I ever learn to take photos in the physical world) you can read about them at This Fundy Migrant’s Tale.

I hope all of your lives are bountiful and kind. Take care!


Gather Your Memories of the Forgotten City in Second Life

Forgotten City (general)

It’s been one of my favourite locations on the grid for many years. Jeanne Dibou’s fabulous Forgotten City is a magical place, maintained by the automatons left behind when the residents abandoned it.

I’ve posted multiple times about this destination, the JD Mechanical Toy Factory, and Jenne. She’s the talent who created my house. I am obviously emotionally attached to the place.

It was, you’ll understand, sad news to me that the sim is being sold. We have another week or so to poke around and gather enough memories to sustain us.

If you’ve never been – you must go!! Forgotten City is full of characters, vignettes, mechanical bridges, a tugboat that will give you a tour, air vehicles that will take you around, big buildings, small alleys, and machines of all sizes and descriptions.

Take the time to explore this amazing City. Enjoy!

My First Taste of Fall in Second Life & Upcoming Weather Drama

Apple Fall (moderate)

It’s that time of year (in the Northern Hemisphere anyway) when sim owners’ thoughts turn to autumn. We’ll see more and more of the orange/yellow/brown colour schemes in the coming months, but right now Apple Fall’s home island is a good location to try out your new fall wardrobe.

I’ve been thinking a lot about weather lately and, in particular, the upcoming fall and winter. Here, in my real life section of the west coast of North America, we have been bombarded with dire – yet vague – warnings for months.

The whole thing can be boiled down to something that sounds like the title of a bad movie – EL NIÑO vs THE BLOB.

The first protagonist is one I’m sure you’ve heard of. The Pacific Ocean warms up and our weather turns wetter, or dryer, but definitely warmer. Other things happen in other places.

The second character is new. People, who like to pay attention to these things, have been watching a patch of ocean off our coast about the size of British Columbia and about 100m deep. It’s been hanging around for a while and it’s unusually warm. The technical term for it, apparently, is The Blob.

It seems that some kind of drama will happen when they meet for the first time.

I have some questions about this. Will there be a countdown clock? We have to schedule our lives, so some information would be helpful.

I assume this will be an event, not a process, in which case – will it be livestreamed? Who is doing that? We all have to start thinking about viewing parties.

I’ll be very disappointed if the two creatures meet and our new Overlords don’t rise from the deep. With that in mind, what does one wear to this kind of thing and will there be subtitles?
