A few days ago was my third rezzday. Not sure what that is in First
Life years, but I still feel SL young, with much to learn, see and do.
From what I remember, my first rezzday was quite uneventful, and in time
for the second one, I wasn’t even inworld. That was a strange time,
filled with unsought for drama, and I just avoided logging in too often.
I’m happy to say that in the meantime, much has changed.
Reflecting on the past year, I’m grateful for the kindness and
patience of my closest friends, to all the content creators whose
creativity makes SL a wonderful visual experience, to residents who
animate SL by bringing their diverse talents and spirit. Somehow I was
taking a lot of that for granted during my first two years inworld,
using SL mostly when I needed a quick escape from FL.
I’m glad I didn’t leave SL at that tipping point roughly a year ago.
Had I done that, I would have missed on some wonderful friendships and
all the fun I’ve had working on the parcels I’ve acquired in the
meantime. Interestingly, second life inspired me to do better in first
life, to explore more in both worlds and do more reading up on various
things. Even experimenting with home decor in SL gave me fresh ideas for
FL. All in all, it was a great year.
To mark that, I organized a small party at my two new parcels, the
Nørgaard Farm and the Funkhaus broadcasting house. Here are a few pics
from the event.
