Set Adrift on Memory Bliss

Posted on Updated on

Happy new week, dear friends! I know the usual mood is to be grumbly about the weekend’s passing, or to have “a case of the Mondays”, as they say. But I’ve just been so jubilant and merry these last few days, that the dawning of another lovely week full of promise and possibilities is something to look forward to. I know, I know – I sound like one part Snow White, and another part a very dedicated MDMA-enthusiast or similar! But honestly and truly, I’m not intoxicated, a Disney princess, or an intoxicated Disney princess (although that sounds like an absolute blast!) I’m just really, really enjoying being back in Second Life again. It’s so good to be home. ♡

Another thing that finds me so happy is the discovery that familiar sights and sims are still in-world and open for visiting and exploration. One of those favorites for me is The Trace Too, a gorgeous beachside sim with such a lovely vibe and peaceful ambiance. It was the perfect locale for my pictures as I enjoyed my return visit, and paid quiet homage to places that had left the grid, perhaps never to be seen again. But this fluidity of our virtual world has a certain grace to it, not unlike a beautiful dancer: you become captivated by the sights, but in order to keep from being in stasis, a sense of vitality and motion can be essential.

I’m getting a little esoteric and poetic, and it’s probably the lack of sleep playing with my thoughts, but as much as I appreciate and adore sims that are “institutions” on the grid, I also appreciate the new iterations that rise from the ashes, or the new inspirations that make the grid a constantly evolving place. But while there are some days when I’m mesmerized and magnetized to discovering new places, there are others when I just want to set adrift on blissful memories of the past …
