May Day Eve

Image
"In somer when the shawes be sheyne,
And leves be large and long,
Hit is full merry in feyre foreste
To here the foulys song.

To see the dere draw to the dale
And leve the hilles hee,
And shadow him in the leves grene
Under the green-wode tree.

Hit befell on Whitsontide
Early in a May mornyng,
The Sonne up faire can shyne,
And the briddis mery can syng."
- Anonymous, May in the Green Wode, 15h Century

How Much Can You Take Before You Snap...?

This stunning machinima "AWOL", was created by Lyric Lundquist. She says that Bettina's post on "SL is Killing Me" perfectly explains what she is portraying here.



Amazing. Brilliant. Evocative. What a talent!

And it makes me feel like I am not alone.

And it makes me cry for Lapin Paris, one of the 19th Century Grid's shining lights, who left SL after it all became too much for her. Lapin was the Captain for RFL Team Caledon 2007, a wonderful person, a cancer survivor and a Lady in my Court of Caledon Carntaigh.

We miss you Lapin. The 19th Century Grid has a hole in it without you.

Love,
Gabi

I am *so* grateful for all of you...new friends...dear old friends...all of you that support me and that celebrated with me yesterday. You have *no* idea how yesterday brought light back into my Second Life, right when I needed it most.

Bettina Tizzy, well known SL Blogger, an active and creative SL resident, and force behind "Not Possible in Real Life", posted the following on her Blog late last week. Thank you my dear Azul for pointing it out to me. :-)

She writes very eloquently about burnout in SL for "SL overachievers", and honestly? I have been fried lately. I have experienced periods of burnout in SL before, but this has been different. It's more of a weariness rather than some big drama. This quote of Bettina's really hit home with me:

"About a year ago, I shared my feelings of …
