Hello dear readers,

I will begin this post by first, inviting you all to the Burn2 Santalarity Event, which begins today!  That’s  right, today. 🙂   It will run throughout the weekend.  So don’t miss out on this wintry Second Life event.

Like a fable borne upon a mist of time, a magical, mysterious transformation is wrought upon the ancient dry lake bed we know as the playa. When the mist clears you see an alpine wonderland of mountains, hills and valleys.

Oh, but that is not all! As you draw in for a closer look, you notice something incredible: everything is small in size. You are surrounded by miniature villages and diminutive trains, with LIlliputian creatures and beings populating the scene. But don’t let their small sizes fool you – things are rarely as they appear.

Great Things Come in Small Packages.

There will be many great activities, builds to see, music, and snowball fights. Fun!

And guess who signed up?  Moi. 🙂  I am so pleased that I did sign up, because as a result, I pushed myself to learn how to use the dreaded BLENDER.  I stuck with things that would be easier for me to try, as steps and milestones. Then there was light, and the conception of my primmy mesh egg.   Well not exactly in that order, but my build consists of eggs. 😀

The first mesh egg I uploaded is  Land Impact 10.  Scary I know.  The second is 2. Then I decided bows were needed, and learned to make a bow.   It certainly isn’t the best in Second Life, and it is outrageously primmy.  With a land impact of 14. Oo  I also learned about texturing and uv mapping.   (But more about that in a later post).

So according to the almanac, winter begins on December 21, 11:48 P.M. EST, in New York.  We are in the record breaking 50-60 degrees Fahrenheit range.  If you’re curious to know, that is “NOT” normal this time of year for us.

Within Second Life though, we don’t get to experience the true physical properties of the cold weather against our skin and bodies.  We can though visualize the beauty of the seasons through the content creations and recreations via Second Life.

We can appreciate the scenes through imagery in a visually appealing and sensory inviting form.  And oh boy, there are so many beautiful creations and re-creations currently available in Second Life that can truly stimulate our senses.  These products can effectively stimulate our shopping urges too, as do commercials.  With so many events and merchants, it is hard to slow down and resist all of the wonderful holiday shopping.

Make sure you all do get out in the world and visit all the wonderful things SL has to offer. 🙂  You can find out more about Burn2 visiting their website.
