Five Years in Second Life!
Today is my rezday. Five years ago today I joined Second Life; it took some time to get used to it, what with typing movements, alternating night and day, and building, but I am quite comfortable there now, with my friends and creative work to do.
This is the earliest pic I have, from August of 2004. I am on my deck somewhere (I don't even remember all the places I have lived), with my purchased patio furniture and rug. Now I make most of what I use, but then I really had no clue how to do anything. Thanks to those who understood building, scripting, particles, and those sorts of things, I am able to be a bit more independent, but I still buy stuff that is beyond my capacities.
Second Life has given my life a new dimension. It is not a substitute for but an augmentation of, my First Life.
