It is time to ascend

Not so long ago I interviewed the über talented Mantis Oh aka Cari Lekebusch and look what he has done now!  He has created Ascension which is a multimedia LEA sim.  This amazing sim opened on the 25th April 2013.

SLE Ascension 1

It is described as “an ancient/futuristic landscape with surreal plants and hybrid insects, Ascension takes the visitor on a trip of sound, color and light.”

Second Life is not all sex, music and fashion, there are those among us who are in SL to educate others and to do their bit for charity and to raise awareness for issues that plague us out in the big bad real world.

One such place is the Non Profit Commons, where a collection of really lovely people meet in SL to promote RL charitable programmes. The Nonprofit Commons in Second Life is sponsored by TechSoup Global and is a programme of Caravan Studios and the TechSoup Global Community & Social Media team.

“The reason is you”

Roy Mildor 1

Madison rezzed in at the ‘Stuff Groups lounge as she regularly did, to see if any new designers had joined the groups, as she was perusing the ad/gift boards she noticed an incredibly dishy guy standing in front of the MenStuff boards.  Being a profile perv (well that’s what they are there for right?) she read his profile and was instantly attracted to this avatar without even having uttered a word to him.  “This is pure craziness” she mused to herself, “how can there be an attraction with no interaction?”  Her IM pinged, as she checked to see who it was, her heart skipped a beat “Omg, it’s him”

Axe Darkstorm: Hi there pretty lady, are you by any chance checking out my profile? Lol, I know that sounds like a weird question.

Madison Kitely:  *Chuckles* indeed I was, why do you ask?

Axe Darkstorm: Again this is going to sound weird, but I felt somehow compelled to look at you, as if you were sending me a message through the metaverse.

Madison Kitely:  Ok well it does sound a little odd, but at the same time I have to admit to feeling a strong connection with you while I was reading your profile,  apparently the gods of the metaverse have plans for us, lol, now who is sounding weird ….

Axe Darkstorm:  Well then I think we should be friends don’t you?

And so a new relationship begins ….

That’s Life

Blue dock

Nobody said life would be easy

so the saying goes

but really what is the point of misery

so much unhappiness surrounds us

every single day

It is so difficult to want to continue

when there just seems no good reason

everything is always such a hassle

no one is really happy

Expectations so often unrealistic

others frowning upon your choices

and being judgmental

oh how everyone is so good at that

how does life get so miserable

what is the point

I am so tired of – “Oh that’s life”

Why must I be the one to compromise

just to keep the peace?

Well if that is all life is going to be

then life sucks
