Whenever I think of leaving SL or think of packing up my house and pool, karma intervenes. I believe it was back when I was thinking of moving off the mainland that LOLpande came around. The last few months I’ve been in my skybox more often than not. I do go down to visit the ducks, but mostly I’m away. I’ve been toying with the idea of packing up the house and simply moving the pool up to the sky. Everytime I think I might do that it seems too much effort. And I love my house. Even if I’m not in it as much as I was. So there it sits while I relax in the sky.
Last week I logged in to the usual bunch of IMs and messages. I noticed an unfamiliar name in the IMs and looked a bit more closely.
Sky: hey I found ur place by accident
Sky: it is great
Sky: like the pool
/me smiles. For me, this is one of the great pleasures of SL. Even better than someone enjoying what I enjoy is the fact that Sky took the time to IM me to tell me that. So I sent off a reply.
Ahuva Heliosense: /me grins. so glad you enjoyed the pool! thanks for letting me know. 🙂
Ahuva Heliosense: feel free to use it often.
And I went on about my way, smiling. The next time I logged in, there was an IM from Sky, thanking me. About a week later, I was hanging about the skybox, relaxing, IM’ing with some folks, but mostly enjoying my morning coffee, when Sky IM’d me from my pool. *grin* I tp’d down right away. There was Sky, floating about in the pool. Apparently he’d figured out how to unhide all the pose balls. I settled down poolside and we chatted for a bit. I did offer him a bathing suit but he was quite content to float about fully dressed. *grin* Interesting that. Many of my other guests have ALSO declined bathing suits, but they floated about au natural. 🙂
I realized that if I were going to run a swim club, it needed not only a name but some towels. I mentioned these issues to Oura and Faust. Oura found the towels and Faust named the spa: Villa sub Heliosense. *grin* I may have to change the name of my land group and set up different classes of permissions to accommodate the spa guests. Maybe add a shade umbrella or two. I’ll have to ask the ducks if they would mind visitors down on the sand.
Villa sub Heliosense: the home of sybaritic pleasures.
One thought on “Why I Stay”
haha what fun, and admirably generous! I leave my land open and unlocked for the same reason; even the bed up in the hovering Dreamliner is open (and I know at least one fellow who brings women there, and tends to leave invisible male organs lying about for reasons I can’t imagine). And there are some people I don’t know who frequent my little “Free Money Giver” box (it gives out 10L a day to the first person who touches it and who it hasn’t given money to in the last week or so). I actually ran into one of them once, and she said my little park (whose parcel name is “Microparadise”) is her little paradise, too. I loved that. 🙂
