"As I was there in bed and fell asleep I drifted off into Second Life. I really don't mind that at all, because I get some great ideas when I dream about SL and I am there making some adjustments to the Retreat. I have read in some forum that Second Life addicts dream of it, but I am not an addict. I am an artist. I am sure you don't call an artist who creates new pictures all the time and dreams about it an addict, right?" Read more on the blog.

"A while back I did a post called Ill-Behaved Women where I created some portraits of women from history that chose to make their own path rather than follow the one that society deemed “Appropriate”, in honor of Women’s History Month this month I am expanding on that project and will be doing a whole series of portraits of women throughout history."

"Good morning, Adventurites…I’ve been sitting on this for a few days now. Yesterday I just didn’t really want to write. This Spring is bittersweet. Usually when we say “Hello, Spring” it is with great cheer and relief that the winter is over." Read more on the blog.
"I am playing with lights again! This is not quite what I was going for, but I’ll try again another day. I have sorted out my requirements for the month already, so I decided to blog the outfit I have been wearing for the past few weeks to immortalize it." Read more on the blog.
"I am writing this while bacon is crisping in the oven and scrambled eggs are waiting to be cooked in the pan to go with it and just writing that has made my mouth water! " Read more on the blog.
"Sometimes I just go and explore places and hope nobody is around and I can have an entire Sim to myself. I sit there and enjoy the silence because the silence has become familiar. I don't always have to have people around me, I enjoy the solitude." Read more on the blog.
"It has been a while since I updated here. Part of that has been due to recent health issues brought on by the sub-zero temperatures we experience the week before last, which greatly reduced the time I’ve been able to spend in Second Life. Yesterday was the sixth anniversary (or ‘Rez-Day’ as it’s called by some folks) of my joining Second Life. Sadly, I wasn’t feeling up to celebrating, so it was pretty low-key this year."

"Every day people login to Second Life for various reasons. Some login for play and recreation, others for social interaction, yet there is a smaller group who login with the intent of making Second Life better for everyone else. One of these SL visionaries is the focus here today." Read more on the blog.
"They tell you that you won’t find what you’re looking for until you stop looking. And this was no more true for me than in the last four months or so. Learning about myself through learning about You, learning about working together instead of against each other. Learning about what love actually looks like." Read more on the blog.
"We are looking to examine how Second Life helped residents keep it together in their first lives during these past twelve months with the pandemic. Are you a teacher who used SL as a classroom? Did you get together with family in-world while distancing in your first life? Are you an essential worker who found solace and safety online after a day of dodging viruses and anti-maskers? If you think Second Life helped you hold it together, send me or Cajsa Lilliehook a short paragraph and we will interview some of you for a story on the ways SL made these past twelve months bearable and beatable."

"The town was waking up slowly around us. We could hear church bells around us near and far. It almost sounded like they were yawning after a deep slumber too. His forehead was wrinkled as he was looking at the map. Old fashioned guy. GPS and smart phones are all nice and well, but nothing beats a good old map." Read more on Flickr.
"It has been a while since I last blogged. For over a month, my Mom has been ill. It has taken a toll on me emotionally, physically and creatively. I have lost interest in most things. Even now this blog post was difficult to make. The uncertainty I feel is cutting like a knife." Read more on the blog.
"Somebody asked me recently what SL was, as they didn’t know a thing about it. I said, like a good resident that I am, that it’s a virtual world (and not a game :D)." Read more on the blog.
"I woke up the other morning and really wanted a hug, in these current times such things are no longer to be taken for granted." Read more on the blog.
"Ara and I have been dating for close to eleven months now. It feels like it was not to long ago, when I was just getting to know her. (And when June was team Ara before that was even a thing in my head). Anyway, I figured it is best to ask Ara to be my Valentine because one should never assume such things." Read more on the blog.
"It’s been exactly one thousand, four hundred and sixty days, since I lost my husband to cancer. It sounds like a long time, it is, in fact, just 4 years." Read more on the blog.
"I’ve always loved rooftop scenes in movies and tv shows. It always looks so cool with the way they make the roof of a building into something completely different. When I was growing up, my mother always had a lot of houseplants. She would struggle when we lived in apartments, because she wanted a yard where she could plant bushes and outdoor flowers." Read more on the blog.
"She was drawn to damaged souls and had a fiery desire to fix them. There were those who sincerely embraced her and then some who saw this as a way to take advantage and use her for their own selfish intentions. Little did she know that an unfortunate encounter with a deeply damaged soul would set off her downward spiral." Read more on the blog.
"A few days ago my beautiful child got a cold that he immediately passed on to me, because momma must be near him at all times trough this ordeal of snot … But back to my much healthier second life, today I shot some beachy photos.." Read more on the blog.
"Well, it’s finally happened. I decided to get my ALT a body and well now she’s got a decent head and a decent body, I should probably let her move in. I mean, I’m accustomed to my solitary space anymore, but there is something nice about having someone who appreciates my new wine fridge." Read more on the blog.
"Being around people who are different from us makes us more creative, diligent, and hard-working. Culture is that which shapes us; it shapes our identity and influences our behavior. Culture is our “way of being,” more specifically, it refers to the shared language, beliefs, values, norms, behaviors, and material objects that are passed down from one generation to the next." Read more on the blog.
"As it turns out, we have not yet reached peak Bernie meme. Tossing kerosene onto that ebbing fire, content creator Max Graf (above) just created a free Bernie cutout to take around with you in Second Life to place Bernie in all your virtual world screenshots: " Read more on the blog.
"Once upon a time, before the year 2020, it was not unusual to have a day job that required you to leave your home and go to an office to work. Sounds crazy, right?
But it is true, working has not always been sitting in your sweatpants behind a laptop at the kitchen table, while you have your make-up bag ready next to the mousepad in case your coworker spontaneously decides ‘hey guys, let’s go on camera!’ during the Zoom call!" Read more on the blog.
"In my Second Life I have dealt with almost every drama one can imagine, so you can call me an expert. I hope you find it useful and helpful to read other peoples problems and of course my sound advice. The first letter I will answer is one with an issue I am sure many of you can relate to."

"I am proud and honoured to introduce to you one of my oldest and best friends in Second Life, Nicoli Batista, who will be writing her columns on my blog!" Read more on the blog.
