Wandering across the grid I came across this tiny patch of grass in memory of Shakira Wind. There were pictures of her, a candle, and a dance ball. I don’t know when she passed, and I’d never met her. Just a beautiful, sublime, bittersweet memorial for an SL/PW life that was lived. I clicked the dance ball and dance with her memories for a while.
LIKE A DOVE – by Carlos Kirshner a.k.a. A7
Like a dove,
we fly far away,
letting us go higher and lower,
through the rain,
through the pain,
The dove kept on,
as it left behind a piece of itself,
through every place it passed,
through the valleys and the mountains,
through the pain,
through the happiness.
The dove kept on moving and pushing,
showing the world the beauty that is,
showing postivity in the light,
even in darkness,
a light still shines bright.
The dove fought and fought,
holding the paintbrush of expression,
painting poetic colors showing divity and compassion,
as it showed the ways of love,
as it showed the ways of happiness.
The dove rests,
its message comes to a close,
showing that love and truth let it be told,
A dove is down,
but it still flies,
as we close our eyes,
we feel its love forevermore.
And in the hearts of men and women alike,
the dove still flies and will never die,
touching the hearts of those that try.
The dove flies.

(not even if you want me to) Over the years so many “SL Killers” have come & gone: Cloud Party, Blue Mars, InWorldz, Sansar, HiFidelity, and more. Mostly gone now. Zuckerberg’s “Metaverse” is in trouble. Meanwhile, SL keeps pressing on. Even so, don’t take it for granted. SL could die, or changes to SL, or changes in your life, could cause this beautiful dream to end. Even if the dream does continue, beloved characters might exit the stage. Savor every moment.
