A Poem About Penny Lane

My friend Serendipidy Haven has been on a poetry kick lately. I always enjoy when she writes it because it either gives a peek into what she’s feeling or it’s something funny. Because Seren’s been writing poetry, it made me remember one she wrote a few years ago about the Penny Lane sim. She emailed it to me to cheer me up for some reason, but we never published it.

Lost in Counting

Two Fish is an art sim with some head tripping stuff by Saskia Boddeke. In 2010 she produced an installation called Susa Bubble that was both bizarre and intriguing. Here’s a video that shows part of the Susa Bubble story. It’s several years old now, but I saw it while surfing youtube for Second Life stuff. Blast from the past!

Is There Something I Should Know

I think in music. Every situation I get into, every place I visit, every word I read, and everything I see has music behind it. A melody seems to weave its way into every encounter. I’ve gotten dream interpretations in the form of music, and even written funny songs about my cat. For me, life has a soundtrack. When I woke up this morning, this was the song in my head: “I made a

It’s not a very big building and there are certainly fancier looking places in Second Life; however, this little church is more special than many realize. Two main reasons I put a church at Penny

Reality in a Different Form

I stumbled upon Creations for Parkinson’s while searching for art galleries. It led me to this video from the Drax Files which is a couple of years old, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s worth watching. Fran Seranade, 86 at the time of the video, said “My avatar represents how I truly feel inside.” That’s what I’ve been saying all along! Barbie Alchemi, Fran’s daughter who made Creations For

About That Christmas Surprise…

“Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!” — Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas The other day I mentioned I had a surprise. I was all ready to announce it, but then I heard some of my friends say stuff like: “Christmas is better closer to Christmas!” “Bah, humbug!” “I’ll
