I’m Crashing Now….

…’cause I’ve been hard at work building this new bed, and I need my beauty sleep now.  It’s still not a great piece, but it’s better than the previous bed, uses fewer prims, and doesn’t have floaty script words over it all the time.

Good night…(yawn).

I Love This Pose!

I love my new bar set that I’ve added into the penthouse.  These chairs have some excellent pose animations, and I may have to get another set just to get these stools for my Secret (Public) Photo at the store.

Relaxing at Home Number 5

Kicking back beside the fireplace

I guess I haven’t mentioned that I’ve moved again, but this time it was my choice.  Some of the corners and other layout factors in my old house weren’t making me happy, so I went over to a place I’ve been eyeballing — fortunately, on the same island and with the same landlord! — and the apartment I wanted was open!  Not only that, but it’s L$120 less for almost the same number of prims, and I’ve actually shucked some of the prims I was consuming in the move.

I’m almost completely set up — far faster than I was doing on two-floor houses; I just need to put up some more art on the walls.  Although, if anyone can point me toward a nice, animated (not with sex animations) or editable bed in Art Deco style, I would thank them deeply.  And who knows?  I may finally decide to throw a housewarming for once….

I’ll put together some photos over the next few days, so watch this if you’re interested.

The Diversity of the Anglican Cathedral

Evening prayer at the Meditation Chapel

I’m an occasional participant in the services at the Anglican Cathedral in Second Life on Epiphany Island.  With an excellent set of volunteer leaders, we have services of prayer and meditation for most of the standard “hours” of the ecclesiastical day.

This photo shows the diversity of our community, sitting in for evening prayer at the Meditation Chapel down the hill from the Cathedral.  As you can see, we respect all comers, no matter gender, ethnicity…or, apparently, species!

The Holy Flame Burns in Vancouver

The Olympic Games are always an important thing to me, but most especially the Winter Olympics.  I watched the last parts of the Opening Ceremony last night live after I returned home from work, including the double lighting of the cauldron — once in BC Place, and the second time the actual outdoor urn on the waterfront, done solo this time by Wayne Gretzky.

The Olympic Flag will fly over my store, Harper’s fine Art and Photographs, in Desire region until the games close in about 16 days, and this replica of the Vancouver torch will burn inside the store.  May its holy flame, symbol of aspiration, peace and the striving for excellence, inspire us all both in world and beyond the Grid.

A Pandora Island Sunset

Sunset from my new apartment

I’ve moved again, folks — but this time it was of my own volition.  I wanted higher ceilings than my old house had, and so I went around Pandora Island to the new apartment block, and snaffled a nice pad.  A fireplace I can turn off and on, Venetian blinds, high ceilings, almost the same number of prims for maybe a Benjamin less — and dig the view up the coastline!

I’m hanging on to my old house for the moment, in case this doesn’t work out.  But, if it does, I know a pretty nice cabin with a great landlord you could rent:  L$1,000/week/450.  If anybody’s interested, check back with me in about two weeks, and I could tell the landlord to release the lease on it.

Relaxing After Insilico Series

I figured that, after all the work and struggle with lag I went through putting together the Insilico series, that it was time for some relaxation.  So I dropped in to Fibber Magee’s for the Tuesday night céilidh.  That’s me on the stool; but I got off me buns later and started rockin’ with the rest.  I even met a newbie — 2 days old — named Annie Ivylord, who I took some time to talk to and answer questions.  A good day and night all told.
