Moment of Tranquility   Leave a comment

Thank God for Second Life right now! A safe place to meet, and mostly a place of calm, where you can get your head together for an hour or two outside of the fears and panic of the times.

And a woman spoke, saying, “Tell us of Pain.”
And he said: Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding.
Even as the stone of the fruit must break, that its heart may stand in the sun, so must you know pain.
And could you keep your heart in wonder at the daily miracles of your life, your pain would not seem less wondrous than your joy;
And you would accept the seasons of your heart, even as you have always accepted the seasons that pass over your fields.
And you would watch with serenity through the winters of your grief.
Much of your pain is self-chosen.
It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.
Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquillity:
For his hand, though heavy and hard, is guided by the tender hand of the Unseen,
And the cup he brings, though it burn your lips, has been fashioned of the clay which the
Potter has moistened with His own sacred tears.

Teleport to Tokyo-Windhill City (SSOC region). You will not land in the park, as this is a sim with a dedicated landing point! Exit the arcade you land in, then open the Map and change the Location numbers to 133 / 209 / 33, so you will get a beacon to walk toward (no flying allowed in the sim). The park will lie northeast of your landing point, 1-2 minutes’ walk.)

Hauling Out the Old – Ricielli

When you sit down to clean out your Inventory, you’d better sit down and focus on it.  I’ve been up in the “penthouse” apartments of my space station for well over a week now, with Inventory set on chronological, scooping through tonnes of old stuff that’s accumulated like a nightmare of the late George Carlin’s devising, for over a week now.  In the process, of course, I’ve found things that I’d forgotten I’d ever bought, and I’m feeding them into the “sorted” system folders when I find something worthy of keeping.

Chiefly, though, I want to lose as much of the old pre-Version 2 clothing as I can, as these old garments, particularly the skirts, are often based around alpha layers in the prims that look funky on modern viewers and screens1.  Old curly hairstyles from back then were also heavily wrapped around alpha layers. because that’s what we had to work with back then.  You young whipper-snapper recent comers to Second Life fashion don’t know how good you have it these days, when we don’t have to walk uphill both ways in blinding virtual snowstorms to go mine and smelt raw, hot prims and create alpha textures like we did back in the Good Ole Days–

(Sound of a 3-day-old fish whacking against Harper’s head)

Okay, okay, less hyperbole.  Anyway, I’m also finding things that fall under the category of “What was I on when I bought this??”  If I find something so atrocious that it deserves a shot, I may share it with you.  For now, though, I’d rather share a few of the nicer things I’ve stumbled back over, such as this denim bustier jumpsuit from Ricielli, which I’ve teamed up with an old hairstyle that was sold by Griddie.  I’m pretty sure both of these are no longer available — what happens when you forgot to write something up and the creator shuts down their store or drops a piece from the line.  Of course, that’s what then makes this vintage!

1 Wild, baby; only seven years in Second Life, and I’m thinking of those early days as ancient.  (Shakes head.)
