Like Kudzu moving over the landscape, A pall is cast over our aspirations, Channelizing dreams to nigh nightmares; ~ Tom Wright
I’ve been a bit adrift in the Second Life recently, my first life is taking over like the insidious kudzu vine choking the last breath out of every living thing around it. I kept thinking I would blog about my current life, but then, something new calls me away. I wrote a notecard to explain my absence to some close friends inworld, even took a pic for a blog post, then nothing. I mean, I have logged in, I’ve landed at my platform in SL a couple of times these past weeks, but I just stood mute for an hour, gazing into cyber-space before logging off. This breadth of space on my blog was the same, I stared at a white sheet begging for word, then turned my eyes away and signed out.
Somewhere among these past nine years I grew up. Don’t get me wrong, I know grown people inhabit Second Life, heck, I myself am not “leaving,” at this point, just somewhere along the way, life happened. I’ve been given the opportunity, a promotion, as it were, but it won’t be seamlessly easy for me. I will need an additional class and a bit of training, but I’ve decided to take my employer up on the offer. The money is nice, but no longer feeling complacent and sedentary, quite frankly bored, is even better. At least that’s what I keep telling myself. I’m hoping this doesn’t turn into be careful what you wish for. Time will tell.
Don’t count me out, I am still here, just here being relative at this moment in my life. I hope you have a gorgeous weekend.
