... After a mishap in a canoe tour - where I (Yona Spearsong) was chucked out into the water - I decided to explore the da vinci gardens- whale watching centre. I had 'found' a landmark card (or whatever the term is) in a treasure chest in the sea near the Murdoch Institute, during a swim with fellow avatar Dianne last Sunday.
After a 'water dance' in which I truly felt free in my body (the power of suggestion?) I took a spin on a seahorse. How magical. OK, I admit, I do have a brain which accommodates magic and fantasy rather freely, but still. Where else do you get it? I started to enjoy myself, and felt the tension from the A&E experience last week and the subsequent exhaustion and illness, float away...
... so, I played a little piano to celebrate. Under the sea. At the south Pole, apparently. Where else? Unfortunately I didn't have any money on me to give the dancer a tip...
I 'teleported' to dry land again and met some families out having fun. To my delight Magic was in the air here as well. There was a huge feather waiting for me to go on a 'tour-de sky'.
I finish my adventure holiday in a treehouse. Climbing the rope ladder without any difficulty, I relaxed by a crackling fire, overlooking the sea, and having the company of a squirrel, an owl and.. a bottle of wine!
I never ever thought I could get excited about the computer's possibilities, but I have to admit, visiting SL at times, does the job, and in a way has given me 'fuel' to get on with Real Life.
Thanks again Kirsty and Dianne, and the creators of these magical worlds at our fingertips.
What an inspirational and delightful story Corina!
Great story Corina...."played a little piano under the water.."... i almost hear it....
Brilliant that you can do screen grabs. Didn't know you could do that. I must have another go at 2nd Life.Just got irritated with navigation last time but I'll try again :O)
Thank you all, I had such a great time, and it is lovely to share the experience. By the way, can anyone tell me where I can go for a bicycle ride in SL? :-)
Cusp: please do visit again, and the photos are taken by clicking on the 'take snapshot' (or something along those lines) in the bottom bar. Have fun!
