Pure Eggs & Spam - 1.png

"Palomma Casanova was a remarkable lady in Second Life. The Free Dove was her baby, her project, the way she reached out to help everyone. It really was a labour of love, I know from our conversations how much she toiled over it. When I heard she had passed away I was really shocked and saddened. Palomma had never mentioned that she was sick, never moaned or complained. Always upbeat, forever forging on with her plans inworld." Read more on the blog.

Goodbye, Palomma.

"A bit of sad news this evening, FabFree.  Palomma Casanova, owner of The Free Dove, succumbed to a long illness on January 14th.  She was a very kind, generous person and will be sorely missed inworld.  In the next few days, I’m going to be posting a few items that I picked up at The Free Dove to honour her memory.  She would have liked everyone to enjoy the gifts while they are still there."

"KT was an artist, a gifted poet and choreographer extraordinaire. Each week his gentle, melodic voice would, through his artistry and imagination, transport us to new worlds, new experiences. It might be a dawn walk along a mountain trail or a treatise on creating sand sculpture on a windy beach. It might be about the effect of sunlight on a falling leaf, a slow walk through a sleeping town or the lulling effect of the clackety-clack of trains in the distance." Read more on the blog.

Virtual Bloke - 2.jpg

"We head into the last few days of 2022 with a new Deadwool suit on the grid. If that’s not cause for an end-of-year celebration for those of us who adore exquisite virtual tailoring, then I don’t know what is. Add to that the fact that I managed to find a Rolleiflex-style camera on SL Marketplace, to continue the apparent ‘Skell taking photos’ tradition for these retrospective blog post header images, and we’re all set for a look back through my virtual and online life this past year."

"Each December, it has become my habit to offer a general look back on Second Life’s progress through the year – as I recently published for 2022, using the Lab’s own look back as a foundation (much as I did in 2021). In some of these looks back, I’ve included some personal notes on my own times in-world, although of late I’ve let that drop away, as is seemed rather self-indulgent. However, to break things up a little as 2022 draws to a close, I thought I’d toot my trumpet again and look back on the year and what it has meant to me." Read more on the blog.

That Time I Asked Everyone To Go Caroling with Me

"This is the photo that I mentioned I was working on yesterday. While I’ve been planning on this photo since probably Thanksgiving, I procrastinated far too much. Regardless, I am so happy with the result. This year’s prompt was, “Pretend I asked/forced you to go caroling with me.” I felt like it fits because it’s like when I have these random projects and cajole my friends to take part with me."

It's Not Fine

"It is as though every year I get older, it feels less like the Christmases I used to remember. Or maybe the world just seems less beautiful and less wonder filled. Or maybe I’m not so easily impressed. Or maybe the nostalgia and fondness of holiday’s long past have been thrust upon this pedestal in my mind that nothing could compare. I try to do things to capture that magic and that feeling. It’s part of why I wanted to do the I’ll Be Home For Christmas winter destination in SL." Read more on the blog.

"So I’m sweet sixteen! Or at least my avatar is – would that it applied to me once more…

When I reached 15 continuous years in SL I really had little to say (although I managed to say it in around 900 words!), as not that much had changed with me personally over the course of 2021 – and SL itself had remained fairly well balanced.

2022 has been slightly different – there have been new features and capabilities deployed to Second Life, with LL working to try to increase the platform’s appeal and engaging with users in the development of new features"

Mahala's Wanderlust - 3.png

"As I mentioned in my last post, I recently packed up my mainland parcel and relocated to Second Norway. 

I had looked at several options. While I continue to root for mainland to thrive, I couldn't afford the parcels that had all the bells and whistles I wanted. I've leased homesteads before, but I didn't like being cut off from the Blake Sea, not having neighbors, etc. 

Exploring by horseback, speedboat or auto are how I spend my slack time in SL. After weighing all the options available, I finally found a solution.

Second Norway is the best of all worlds."

An SL Thanksgiving Project 2022

“I did this collaborative project two years ago, and I want to do it again this year. If there is one thing I feel this world needs more of, it is kindness, and I can’t think of a better way than to express it to those we are most thankful for. For this project, people will submit a short note for someone and write why they are thankful for them. Each submission will appear as their own page in a book that will be published online on issuu. This is open for anyone to participate in, and you can do as many submissions as you would like.” Read more on the blog.

Science Circle - 1.png

"I love Halloween. It’s really my favorite holiday. This year I’m going to curl up with movies, Bell, Book and Candle and The Mummy, a bowl of popcorn and a glass of dry red wine. OK, so this is a column about science. To justify this particular offering, I decided to see if I could find any scientific excuses for my enjoyment of Halloween." Read more on the blog.

Cross Your Fingers When You Lie

"The last time I took one of those personality tests was about five years ago. Back then, I was an ENTP-T. A couple nights ago, I tried again and I am now an ISFP-T. I spoke to my SL sister about it, and she thinks it fits. It just got me thinking about how we are all constantly changing, how life experiences and what we take from them mold us and help for us to grow." Read more on the blog.
