Until We Meet

Could we see when and where we are to meet again, we would be more tender when we bid our friends goodbye. Ouida

Cao~Cherry Blossom...

I won’t say bye, I just won’t. How many people say that and then don’t leave? So for now I will say “until we meet again.” I’ve been wrestling with the urge to move on, to leave the virtual world Second Life and for now, it’s what I need to do. I won’t forget a single one of you. Not one. You have all touched my heart in different ways and raised me up to adulthood just fine. Our second world has changed so much in eight years and I am sure it will continue to improve, so don’t be surprised if I sneak in every once in a while just to have a look about. If I show up on your radar, give me a hallo from time to time. I couldn’t leave without a picture from one of my best friends Skip Staheli and I appreciate so much all that he has meant to me, as well as all that each of you has meant to me.

I want to post up one word of advice I always try to live by. Before you speak, ask yourself, are my words used to uplift and inspire? Because it seems in virtuality and online, more people should be practicing this mantra.

Wishing you a rainbow
For sunlight after showers—
Miles and miles of Irish smiles
For golden happy hours—
Shamrocks at your doorway
For luck and laughter too,
And a host of friends that never ends
Each day your whole life through!

  1. I know from time to time I’ve taken my SL breaks, but have always return to see my family and friends. I have since returning noticed your absence and your daily tidbits of inspiration- I wish you much love in your leave, and that you embrace the next step of your life’s journey filled with love and peace – till we see you again I bid you adieu. Yes I carry your mantra and continue to be as positive and as enlightened as I can be. With a warm hug ❤

    1. I know with all my heart that you share love and kindness every where you go sweet Miya, you always have with me and I know you would always do with others. Thanks for being a part of my SL. :*

  2. PS I left for a few years and now it seems I only pop in to hear a reading at Seanchai Library or see an art show. I no longer “live” in SL in that way. So “All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us”- Gandalf!

  3. Cao, my dear friend, you have been special to me. I like the idea of just saying ‘until we meet again’ since saying goodbye is so very hard to do with someone I call friend. It’s not that you are departing, but rather as if we met on a forest path and walked together for a distance enjoying the companionship. Now we have come to a crossroad. Both paths offered edged by ferns and wildflowers, we share a warm embrace and start off, each on our own way, not knowing if those paths may cross again, and silently hope that they may.
    I wish you all the best this life can offer you. I wish you joy, that you may be surrounded by good friends, that each day you are blessed in some way, and that you be loved and cherished as you deserve to be.
    *hugs her and hands her an ice cream cone, double scoop, with sprinkles, to start her journey* 🙂

  4. Sweet little caohow, i refuse to say goodbye, i wont do that, so yes it will be until we meet again. I will miss your blog, your story’s, your fashion, just will miss you. Hope that you will be arround sometimes, big huggg, luvyou ❤

    1. We are such kindreds you and I, my EJ PJ. I swear to the one above, just this morning when I awoke I thought about how much I miss you, also my dragon, and quite a few others. If work wasn’t shellackin me, I wanted to send you an email. I hope I can soon. Love and miss you so ♡

    1. Lol thank you EJ PJ! At this point it’s head up and wait for the punch in the face. 😉 I seem to remember you are in the same straights I wish you soft winds and straight sails. Personally for the first time in my lifetime Floridian life, I am skeered. See you on the other side. :***

  5. I was wondering the same thing Moz. I miss her lovely words of encouragement and support. I miss her fabulous photography. I also miss her random and funny thoughts such as ‘Cao’s are really ground people and can’t really use stairs!’….

I'm done inconveniencing electrons, any thoughts? Come on, you know you have 'em, post them up here.
