Odds & Ends

Thank you to all that contributed to our picture contest...both those that entered well as those that took the time to vote. I realize that while community based activities aren't easy or interesting for's my belief that community is one of the things that separates us from so much of the friendless anonymity of Secondlife in general.
As one of the older members once said...Secondlife seems so much bigger if you don't have a home...a place you feel you belong.
In the last couple days I've had three visits & one IM from past residents.
Veronica F. stopped by just to say hello...{such a far cry from real life..where so often when someone *drops by* it's 'cause they want/need something}.
Gigi stopped in..{our friend from Turkey}.
Sunlatina from Peru also came to say hello.
And this morning Jade sent me a wonderful IM...Things like that are a big part of why I'm here.
On a sad note...two years ago Thursday our other Peruvian girl, Lita, lost her real life sister. Lita is still very young and the loss of a sibling is traumatic at most any age. My heart goes out...and the only words I could have for Lita is that time will soften the pain.
Thoughts from Crap....if you've not checked out this blog, I think you might be missing something. { }
Darn it looks like you may have to copy/paste...worth the effort. parting, the thing that bugs me most here at Benares is those rare times when residents don't communicate with me. I need to know if your neighbors are bothering you..{particles from trees coming through your wall...a scripted bird flying across your parcel...whatever. Let one of us know...I've got either myself or managers in world from around 5:30 AM SLT 'till 3 or 4 AM the next day. I also would like to know your plans if you should decide to leave us...I don't want a tier box to run 4 days in arrears and parcel return your objects! Gosh what a mess when you rerezz...prims explode everywhere.
{If that happens....go find an empty sandbox and rezz..easier to find all your objects}. While I do have Bubbles looking at tier boxes daily...mistakes happen...old timers might get me and I forget.
And you know...if the above is the worst of my day? I'm ok.
And so it goes
I do love you all, brinda
