I made an adaptation of my last solstice tree, and though I am not showing you a video, it rotates, and the stars flash and form a sort of spherical shape on top. The ribbons float beautifully, thanks to Osprey's suggest of negative gravity. Mmmmm nice one this year.
From Enjah Mysterio and her entire (loosely related) family:

We all wish you the best as the year turns .... be well, enjoy life, and live to the fullest!
See you in Second Life!

Salazar convened the Explorers' Club, and distributed protective suits for us. The newly risen lands on the map were our destination.
Very close to our landing point we found Magellan Linden's crashed Atomic Borer. Osprey said, "I thought I was the only one with an Atomic Borer!" Was she making a wry joke, or ... does she have one?
I climbed into the cockpit of the ship and immediately pushed The Red Button. A voice came over the loudspeaker system saying, "Self-destruct function is not available at this time; please try again later." We all shivered, thinking of what could have happened if it HAD been available!
From there we did some undersea investigating, and found this burnt-out hull, being used by lots of brightly-colored reef fish. Delightful, but not the end of our search.
Later we explored an ornate temple building with lots of crystals providing power. Under the first floor, we also found this very modern looking submarine, which appeared to belong to a rogue (Mole person?) professor. He or she had books lying on the dock, including one titled "World Domination". Frightening in view of what we saw next.
There were lots of these red power crystals, but this was a cluster of the largest ones. They were mesmerizing. An emitter was atop the entire temple, pointed straight into space. There was also an emitter down near the sea, pointed to the East. There were also four stone emitters aimed at the cardinal points of the compass, and from each came a beam of the same light that was emitting from the crystals directly. I was silly enough to break one beam with my head, and fell, unconscious, to the ocean floor.
I had auditory hallucinations ... sleigh bells, a kitten mewling, and other odd fragments of sound. Then I woke to find Salazar swimming nearby, making sure I was all right. A lesson learned! See the entire stream of photos on Flickr.

Osprey has this lovely meditation zafu on her pavilion and I used one of Jopsy Pendragon's sample scripts to make a helix particle thingie that I wore while I meditated. I felt serene. Osprey's energy is very low, but she seems to be in good spirits anyway, which I admire. She is quietly heroic and always full of life.

We had our last show for a little while today at the Eleanor Theatre in Phobos. This shot is us backstage. Osprey has her back to us, in her command center. We are all gaggling behind the barrier. Yes, I am sticking my tongue out.
Osprey's Supercollider Dance begins with her on the stage, dancing.
She then leaps up into the moving Supercollider, dancing with her veils on the very edge of the black hole.

If you are wandering around or just enjoying your Second Life, take a trip (dare I say a trippy trip?) to The Particle Laboratory. If you cannot find it, look up Jopsy Pendragon. This avatar has been in Second Life for a very long time, and Jopsy's home in Teal (on the mainland, of course) is a land of delights. There is the lab itself, where you can learn all about creating particles. Every night from sunset to sunrise, there is the fireworks display, unparalleled in my experience. Jopsy has a house there, and there are other parts of the build to visit. Each part has its own surprises.

Osprey showed me this cobra created as a "sculpty", a 3D texture applied to a prim. It was quite lifelike, and it was a package ... snake, pungi, music, animations. Good design ... er you will have to ask Osprey who created this, sorry!
The Show Must Go On troupe has set up at the Gaiety Theatre in Penzance, Caledon. We will be performing there regularly, and our first show was a success, in the sense that the sim did not crash, but we fought some amazingly bad lag. Persephone Gallindo built this gorgeous theatre and the set you see is for the Dancers of the Emerald Isle, an act developed by Maxie Schneider.

This island sim brought the Caribbean to mind, with colorful houses, mountains and a neatly laid-out town. I enjoyed it and will return to continue my exploration. YadNI told Osprey about his new build and she invited me to join her to see it; I am glad to see new builds that are friendly and attractive.

Dorie Bernstein is part of the Dreams Fair crew, and she attended the TSMGO show today at Dreams, where she took a lot of photos of the show. These represent the acts from beginning to end, and give the flavor of the show. THANK YOU DORIE!!!
