All changes are more or less tinged with melancholy, for what we are leaving behind is part of ourselves.~ Amelia Barr
I’ve been sort of melancholy and quiet this past few weeks. I can’t point to exactly why, but I can say I’ve thought long and hard about moving on from my Second Life. Heck, I reckon I only logged in twice since December 19th (when my work vacation started) and when I did log in I just sort of stood there staring into space. Though I’ve missed quite a few of you, for the most part I’ve been trying to get my back “back” to working order and spending time with the sorts of people who like to hang with Cao version 1.0. Funny story, and I sware it true, a few years ago when I “retired” from modeling in Second Life, I swore to myself the day I find a decent Cloche hat in SL I knew my work here would be done. When I was trying to figure out what to put on, for a person with 53,000 pieces of inventory you’d think I’d find something decent to wear and rather than pull everything out, I do what Cao’s do. They teleport around in their knickers until something “sticks” to them. Yeah, I wish it were that easy too, if I had that option I’d have my clothes jump on me as I run out the door to real world work, too. As I was thinking about hats, my avid readers and friends know I love the world from the view of a hat, I remembered a free hair/hat gift from Lelutka and Celoe that I had picked up at [Lelutka] the other time I was in SL so I unboxed it. Lo and behold, well looky there, I found it (shown without the lovely included hair), the perfect cloche hat.
Am I leaving Second Life? I am still not 100% sure, but know I would never leave those I hold so dear to my heart behind. You are not my Second Friends, you fit quite perfectly in that portion of heart reserved for the first batch, some of you are even on the epic status of my posse material. In the mean time, I hope you all have a glorious and prosperous New Year filled with smiles, laughter, friends and love.
