Jo has the good fortune of living in a wonderful first-life city, too. Her work is excellent and inspiring, though while seeing the RL shots of her biking and shopping, I kept saying "I wish my city still looked that way."

It makes me wonder...just wonder. How can those of us who enjoy these virtual realms bring our passion out-world, to renew first-life settings so often blighted by ugly commercial strips and other car-dependent living arrangements?

All around me, I see spaces that James Howard Kunstler calls "places not worth caring about." Then I see Jo's vision of Berlin and the reality of her daily life and remember "we could do better."

Jo makes a mention of her next project, which is still a long way off, but which overlaps with some of my particular interests.

London, 1940, in the Blitz. A living city which, every night, went to war.

The overlap with my interests is the uniforms. There are a very few good ones, such as an RAF officer, but I have never found a well-made example of British battledress, the uniform of the British soldiers who fought in Europe. And then there were the uniforms of a half-dozen or so countries occupied by the Germans.

And there was that army of volunteers: the Home Guard, ARP, the National Fire Service, and others. There were ambulance drivers, bring the casualties to hospital through the un-lit streets, not daring to show a light which might attract a bomber.

London was a city of uniforms, with a grim common purpose. And those uniforms, you can expect Jo to be picky about getting the details correct, and she's the boss, but make some good ones, and you have one customer right here.
