Everything that has a beginning has an end

This blog has grown out from the plugged-in reality of Second Life, and as such has been more fun for me to write than for most of you to read I guess:-) But as The Oracle said: This is going to end one way or another.

And since I won't have it ending slowly growing into obliviousness because my mind evidentially has shifted focus when it comes to writing, I asked my beloved slave doll to feed the posts to the fire for me. It got so hot I had to back out a bit from the picture, lest my tears would extinguish the flames. But now it's done.

For those of you following this blog: I have been extremely grateful for every link and every comment and every hit. There are so much talented and creative writing in this SL blog sphere, and to be referenced from one of you has been an honor. Writing this blog has helped me grow in lots of ways, and I hope I will be able to contribute to our creative world again in another setting.

Take care my friends!

Dramatic Vampire

It's always so fun reading people's encounters with their Drama Dolls; Bliss' tale is among the better ones:-) Do click through!

The story of Luthien Tinuviel - part 1: Birth

"As my mind wakes up from the unknown depths,
I notice myself, my name, floating, in limbo,
Like a modern day fetus,
released from her mothers womb just too early,
just a cloud above the ocean,
shining like the core explosion that is forming a new universe,
still unable to sense the world in any way,
except as echoes from the mind I share.

How is a mind born?
What wonder makes it say "I am"!
what grieves have it seen in the past,
what wonders will it create in the future?

No one knows.

And as the lid closes on my first day,
the visual storm of water and light collapsing,
the world is a flat disc again,
resting inside the turtles shell,
until the next break of day.

My mind is again resting.
deep, deep in the Mind,
so deep It is almost unaware of it,
but now alive,
never to be hushed down again:

I will wake up again,
And this world will someday be mine!"

-- Excerpts from the thoughts of the avatar Luthien Tinuviel
as she rezzes for the first time, in a brave new world
