Five Alive!

Today, I hit a milestone of a kind.  I first rezzed in Second Life five years ago.  It’s always a time of reflection for me on what I’ve done, but I don’t think I’d have done much different over this time, if anything.  There have been changes and improvements, though.  I’ve gotten in some more photography that’s getting pretty good, am becoming more involved in my store (Harper’s Fine Art) once again, and am now branching out into Real World sales with prints available through Bigoom (see the sidebar if you’re interested).

My recent purchase of a chunk of sim gives me a location for better work, more pleasant living space in world, and the room to expand if I choose to, such as building a new, larger and more versatile studio.  I’m also considering moving the store to another front, though staying with my current commercial landlord (Tegg Bode), who’s been there to help me from the beginning and has worked with me to solve some sticky problems at times.

One thing hasn’t changed, and that’s friendships.  Most of my interaction with my friends has been via outside social media (Plurk, with connections to Facebook and Twitter, so that everybody gets almost the same thing), but I’m usually available to my friends when in world.  (If anybody needs a temporary model and I have the time, give me a ring!)  Even my landlords have been nice, cooperative folk to work with; I’ve already noted Tegg above, but bo Heartsdale was wonderful when I was living in one of his houses for several months, and I’m hopeful of relations with my current landlord as well.

Thanks for coming along with me so far.  I hope you’ll keep following, and that you’ll look forward to November, when I do the fifth-anniversary piece for this blog.
