Well, my dears, for various reasons, I thought it was time to post a little manifesto, or statement of intent. This blog is a metaverse journal. It is a reflection of my enthusiasms and interests, which include literature and poetry, spirituality, nature, motherhood, reptiles, museums, gardens, women´s issues, our ancestors and history, art, science- you get the idea. It is my attempt to contribute in some small way to the metaverse community. I pass on information I consider useful, and I share my thoughts, the thoughts of an openly older woman, which, in my experience, is a rare thing in the metaverse.
These are some topics that don´t interest me:
I have a mature rated Second Life account. I have no interest in” adult” content, which in my experience always equates to mindbendingly tedious sex and violence. If I post about either of these things, it is usually to warn people away. So, if you want info on adult content, you will have to look elswhere.
I have a mature looking avatar. The freebies I blog about keep her that way.
I don´t gamble. I don´t write about it either.
Shopping bores me very quickly in every reality.
I realized,in 2011 when I started this blog, that I go to the metaverse largely for peace and quiet. So these posts are my journey with a talking snake, a black cat and an iguana who gets stuck under furniture in an annoyingly real fashion. I avoid crowded areas, my only friend on SL is my son. Now in 2012 I must admit OpenSim, has changed this; the atmosphere is so different here that I am able to find social contacts relaxing and enjoyable. I now have a home grid, and if the darned “offer friendship” function would work consistently intergrid, I would have a reeeaaaly long friends list. I love crowds. I go to parties and dance. And I have a ton of animals, including three snakes and five dragons. My son is still my friend.
So at this point in my virtual existence, I suppose my confession would be that I am still a lady hermit, just the kind that goes everywhere and knows a gazillion people.
And that, my dearest dears, concludes my little tirade! I hope you found it helpful. Thank you very much for taking the time to read it! The best of health, the brightest of days and the sweetest of dreams to you all.
