Moving On

My Condolences to his Family and Friends. may he rest in peace.

I would like to point out from my own experiences that I felt he had disengaged the community several years back, made questionable business choices and the selling of LL I believe will not breath new life into SL but be the instrument of opposite outcomes.

Having left SL myself this year after a decade, now trying newer platforms like VR Chat one thing I have learned is some of us just grow out of that tired dream 'your world, your imagination'. It was valid at the time but that time has long since passed for me anyway.

Baby, can't you be real?

My Condolences to his Family and Friends. may he rest in peace.

All of this leaves me pondering the meaning of life and the value of honesty for those who are left living it. Personally, I don't want to leave behind a circle of fans standing in the fires I built and singing me praise.

I think of all of the lost souls of Second Life who devoted their hearts and silver to an ideal that was torched in those fires.

So as I stand waiting here today, a puff of orange smoke in a world with no texture, I will meditate on greatness.
