Mental Health Awareness Retreat

Sterling Pointe is a sim where your soul can relax. A nice club house, a little garden, a fishing area invite you to have a break. But the main theme is information about mental disorders. This month there is an egg hunt. You have to find some easter egss, click them and you have to answer some short questions in the public chat. So you will get interesting information about schizophrenia, Asperger´s syndrome, autism, suicide, multiple personality disorder, alcoholism, depression and many more.

crystal cavern

Have you ever danced in a crystal cavern? Try it on Daligdig Island. You may describe the sound as "crystal spheric" (no idea if the word exists....)


SL offers so many great landscapes with beautiful nature and weather scenes. This week I had been to Wizardhat Studios. There is only one little isle with that thunderstorm, the rest of the region is a lovely spring scenery with many flowers and butterflies. I have created a bunch of art work made on this sim and I am still working and unloading.

dreaming of childhood

Evanesce XIV is an art installation made by the Chinese artist Vixsilver Yoshikawa. She has built her trip down memory lane. Flying furniture, books, characters from fairytales, a magically looking flora make this sim to a getaway from real life. You can dream under the stars or in the dawn - I have selected the environment editor´s adjustment "TOR FOGGY golden glow" for taking my snapshots. The radio station you can listen to by openingg the stream leads you with a smooth sound through the scenery. Sometimes musicians are live performing there. Stay tuned, have a look on the blog and join inworld the group Cafe Mocha. Yes, a little café has been built for a relaxing time and nice chatting.

And again: wandering through Wanderstill leads me to hidden places.

artist talk

Photographer and artist KT Syakumi talked to the audience of Paris Metro Art Gallery on sunday morning. Her pictures have been taken from Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Singapore and the Cook Islands. KT is from New Zealand. She does digital print including fine art work. Her most important tool is a Canon 5D mk and different lenses. Don´t miss her art work. My personal favourites are the foggy snapshots as they have catched the very special light you only can see through the misty curtain. 

FirleFanz was unfaithful ...

... because she went to another blog. I have left my Ramshackle Hut for a trip to Quan´s Travelogues.
The SL travel agent Quan Lavender asked me for taking some photos of Ian Pahute´s art installations. So I went to Isles Las Avies and roared over the sim with my camera. Have a look on Quan´s blogposting.

comic world

Have you ever dreamed of being part of a comic world? Now you can be! Abitibi - The Librarium - is a small comic location - best for taking funny photos. Listening to the stream will make you dreaming with songs from the 30ies and 40ies.

writer´s chat

On Book Island was a writer challenge: we had to write down a text within 20 miutes - could be a poem or whatever we liked. The keyword was "airborne". My English is not good enough for poems so I tried a short story.  

This is the story of the little black crow who went airborne. His name was Crowbert. The black bird wished he was an airship and his name was Crowfighter and he could pass over the ocean. So he started and lifted up his wings. But the ocean is huge and his wings were small. Too small for the long way over the ocean. Crowbert tried his best and failed. He ended up as a duck and died. The ocean became his graveyard. 

Every monday at 1 pm SL time you will have the chance to participate.

sunrise in forrest

I think this must be the house where Hansel and Gretel had been kidnapped. The region is called "Natural Wilderness" and is located in Loch Haven.

lights and lanterns

I was on tour in Second Life and discovered an Italian sim - Land of Glory. It sounds a bit like "Holy Land". There is an amazing plaza with mediteranean houses. Some places are covered with rain, some are dipped in sun. I took tons of photos and now I can show my favourite sample. Enjoy!

thanks to friends and visitors

Last night my first exhibition started and I had been so nervous. There were much more people than I had expected and they stayed longer than I dared to hope. So it was a success !!! Naomi Greenberg asked questions on my pictures and so I could gave people a tour through my art. Artist and author ChapTer Kronfeld commented a lot on my photos - that encouraged me and took away my nervousness. People stayed until midnight and that was one more of the things I hadn´t expected. 

Thanks again to Malycia Dakun for giving me space in her gallery.
