This event looked interesting so I dressed up in an older kimono and dropped by. But no one was there at the appointed time and date, though dinner was all laid out.
Our long-standing chat meeting to discuss anything – RL, SL, OOC or IC – whilst enjoying delicious Japanese food and drink around low tables. Kimonos often shown off but not required!
This is an older Fall’n kimono called Elegant – it comes with a lot of extras, such as 2 versions of the skirts and a fur wrap that can be “removed” by clicking (it becomes invisible. As it’s almost spring it was suitable, and it’s still chilly out!
I was sorry to miss this event – I may have mistaken the time, or some RL commitment may have intervened. But in the meantime I discovered the nearby Companion House, so I took time out to do some tai chi.
This build is inspired by “Firefly,” which resonated with me as I spent some time in a Firefly-inspired sim in my very earliest days in Second Life. There are a number of other beautiful Companion Houses to visit, too!
It was very beautiful in Qoheleth; 10 years ago, I used to spend a lot of time there and in nearby Xenia and Epiphany Island. The very first hunt I ever did was in Xenia, something to do with finding lost penguins. Xenia was residential, but tasteful. Qoheleth was spiritual and hosted a lot of support groups and a virtual church (part of the U.C.C., and it’s still there). Earlier today I popped back in and looked around Epiphany Cathedral, too. It’s all mesh now but is much the same. It was familiar but changed in a good way.
Second Life can be so ephemeral – builds, people and entire sims come and go all the time. So it was nice to find a favorite old haunt that has improved with age.
