Resting in Vex’s lap, both of is wearing new hair we’d bought at Amacci. Warming in front of the fire at Vex’s weekender in Twisster.
Time for some thinking.
I turned five this week. Vex noticed, as did Corwin. It rather passed me by, though I notice I often start sentences with “Back in the day…” or some such. A lot has changed in those years – at least, a lot in sl has changed. The one thing I’ve realised is the strength and the excitement I gain from old friends and new. The intimacy I’ve shared with many people, that comes from knowing them through their thoughts.
SL is truly a voyage of discovery. It’s the discovery of new lands, of new creations, of things that individuals and groups of people have created from nothing. More than this, though, SL has been and continues to be a voyage through my own mind, and a discovery of who I am.
I know I need certain people in my life, though I only discovered how true that is when confronted with the thought of them taking a different path. I know I need to feel wanted. I know I enjoy discovering new people with the hope that they’ll stay with me, yet I know just a few will remain.
For all that I’ve learned, I thank you.
