All these Places have their Moments

Ahern, Morris

I've been in a bit of a blog funk.  Actually, I've been in a bit of a SL funk, not really wanting to log in much anymore.  I mainly come on to feed my kittycats (and yes, I still bread even though most of what is born goes straight to the menagerie.  I guess I still don't get the whole breading thing.).

So I logged on early this morning and thought I would visit some of the places I went to when I first came on sl.  Most of them are gone but I did find a few that are still around. 

Morris or Ahern

Back in the day there were many welcome centers (as there probably are today).  I spent the first couple of months of my sl life in welcome centers.  The hubs I went to were always filled with people but some of the ones I visited this morning are practically deserted.  Nothing like I remember but maybe it was due to the time of day.

I don't know how I ended up at sunshine therapy Garden-maybe I looked up gardens in search.  Or maybe I looked up therapy or sunshine.  My memory eludes me but I do remember I met my very first sl friend there.  Jee is the one that explained to me how to offer friendship to someone.  She was so sweet.  We kind of lost touch when I took a break from sl (one of many).  Maybe I'll look her up someday.  Maybe.  Sunshine Therapy seems kind of old school to me in terms of sl creations but that's one of the reasons I still have a soft spot for the place.  I think they do offer therapy there but I don't know the people who do the counseling and if it's good or bad or anything.

Sunshine Therapy Garden

I always thought Calleta's Hobo Village was the coolest area.  Lots of weird, interesting, quirky people there and I'm weird, interesting and quirky so I always fit right in.  Another place I rarely go to anymore.

Straylight really amazed me in my early days.  It made me realize what can be created in second life.  I love it there-so beautiful.  I get a lot of my landscape stuff from Botanica too.


da Vinci Gardens is somewhere I still go to where I can just be quiet.  There's always a lot of people around but you can find secret little corners here and there.  I usually go and sit on a bench while I message people (well, I used to anyways).

Oh look!  I found an old pic of me and Emerald (I'm the one with dark hair and the hideous dress).  Does anyone remember the name of this coffee place?  It no longer exists but it was one of my favorite places to hang in the early years of sl (my early years I mean).

What are some of the places you used to go to?  Do they still exist?  Why do you still have a soft spot for them?  Do you still go there today?

Year of the Snake

The year of the Snake officially arrived on February 10.  Technically, it's the year of the water snake or black snake but I didn't know that until after I took these pictures.  I still would have gotten a blue snake regardless.

Chinese wisdom says that if you find a snake in your house it is a good sign because it means you and your family will not starve.  Hmm, I'm all for not starving but I don't think I want to find a snake in my house.

The year of the Snake will be a time for you to focus on your goals with a close attention to details.  All those years that passed you by where you had no set direction or path is about to change in 2013.  It's time to get serious and be very disciplined.  You will surpass the goals you have set for yourself if you have a course of action.  It won't be easy but it can be done.  I believe in you!

If you were born in the year of the snake you are thoughtful and wise and you face obstacles with a clear mind, sorting out problems rationally and logically, never by instinct (in other words, you are not a Fool) which leaves me out.  Snake people are often seen as egocentric, however, this may be due to the fact that they rely heavily on themselves, not seeking assistant from others.  On a positive note, snakes appreciate beauty and are often stylish and fashion forward.  (I'm not making this up.  I read it on the internet which makes it true!).

Snakes are great with finances and always seem to have money.  *note to self-make friends with snakes*.  2013 promises to be a good year but focus on detail will be the key for success in business and personal matters.  Most importantly, the snake needs a safe place to work and for meditation or reflection.  So if you were born in 1917 (if you born in the 1917 and are still alive, IM me in-world.  I would like to know your secret!), 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, and 2013 this could be a very good year for you.
