Running Wild Again

Finally, the pain has gone back into it’s hiding place, although every once in a while if I move wrong or twist wrong it rears it’s ugly head and shouts at me! I’m shouting back now and moving on. Smiles.

It’s a strange feeling not to go on-line daily and interact with your friends and foes. Especially when it’s what you do daily and have for the last eight months, almost every morning without a pause. You lie there wondering who is planning what, who is missing you, who hasn’t even noticed you’ve been gone? You want so badly to log in and shout “Here I am!! See me!!”. You’re nervous about going back like you’re now a stranger to everyone or you don’t know what to say or do when you run into another. It’s like you’re a newbie all over again.

You ponder your character and wonder if you are playing the correct role for you. Are you helping others enjoy the second life they have carved out for themselves? Is it worth the time and energy you put into your character and the planning and execution of your plans? Are you spending too much real life cash on clothes and looks for your character? Are you spending too little? Where will you be say six months from now, one year from now? So much to think about while lying on your back pondering your second life!

I want to run wild again! I want to enjoy my second life! I want to enjoy my friends! I want to be part of the ‘in-crowd’! Things change so quickly in second life. Once I read that four hours of second life time equals a full day of real life time. So it’s like I’ve been away for four plus months, not three weeks. I got a lot of living to make up for! Let’s do this… see ya on the inside!

MAY DAY

The first day of May brings to mind vibrant colors, ribbons, dancing, flowers and butterflies while the smell of a freshly mowed lawn fills your senses with memories of childhood days gone by.   The last two weeks of April was a most unusual time for Sunbeam.  Why you ask? Well believe it or not, Sun did not make it to one (1) musical event (a first I believe for her) during the last two weeks of April.   She had good intentions and had plans to go to a couple events she saw advertised and that looked like fun, but alas rl took precedence and she missed the events. 

Even still with missing musical events Sunbeam spent lots of time in her virtual worlds busy continuing builds on SunbeamS, Metropolis; Fairytopia, Tundra 3D; Hidden Glenn, Olantica, the Lost World; and Dry Gulch, Lady K & Lion’s Horse World II Island Oasis.  Sun even tried her hand at making an art piece, a Spinning Gold Crop Circle, can you hear the Twilight music playing in the background?   She was lucky to visit many friends on  different grids and took time out to attend the RFL Fantasy Faire event held on 10 sims in Second Life. OMG What amazing builds and imagination!!!! Plus they raised over 15K $$$ for a wonderful charity.  Congratulations!

Sunbeam joined another grid last week called Cloud Party,  a web based grid, which is a bit different with their building tools but hopefully we will get the hang of it.  Sunbeam popped into Kitely grid, and met her friend Minethere Always.  After hanging at the welcome center for a while we explored our friend’s  bladyblue bommerang regions, which were chock full of  Castles and flowers and glowing plants, all of Sun’s favorite things.  Exploring! another of Sun’s favorites things is about the most fun one can have in a virtual world.

While exploring on 3rd Rock grid, Sun found some wonderful creations made by her friend ambiant kukulca/Nicolas Tesla.  His Steampunk items are truly awesome!  A wonderful creator!!!  Sunbeam had the best time  car racing with Hans Ingen on his region Ingen Lab on Metropolis.  What a fun time and the cars went really fast! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  She may have found a new hobby.  She agreed to take a spot of land to build some fabulous city illusion on the track edges.  Smiles.  Sun did some exploring on Tundra 3D and fell in love with her friend Anan Eebus’ region ‘Unveiled’,  its sooooooooooooo cool and icy and swirly and just fabulous!!!! There is also the newest region Stonehedge, on Tundra 3D, a must see! Sunbeam also spent some time exploring on Virtual Highway and marveled at Megan Cline’s Enchanted Mermaid Isle. Then she visited the Na’vi Museum and had fun paddling up the creek.

One evening while putting sit poses in the hotel on Dry Gulch on Island Oasis grid,  Steve F called and he showed Sun some darlin’ rides he had made for Abby, Scarlet Rose.  We had such fun! It was really great to catch up with the girls on IO too, Kat Ewry, Vickie Day, and a new friend Gracious.  Amazing how fast the time flew by. Girl Talk, gotta love it! Another good friend from IO, Kiko Kenichi stopped by the sandbox to show Sunbeam a few of her latest outfits! This girl is just amazing and so talented.  She even won some Best in “***” contest at the local pub.  (***Black, shorts, hat, mask, etc).

All in all Sunbeam Gridhopped to ten virtual worldz and once again took lots (42) of pictures to share with you my fellow metaverse explorers.  See links tab for information on virtual worlds to visit.  Happy Gridhopping!

ENJOY! Fly HIGH, seek peace and laugh daily!
