WELL WE KNOW WHERE WE’RE GOIN’
BUT WE DON’T KNOW WHERE WE’VE BEEN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE’RE KNOWIN’
BUT WE CAN’T SAY WHAT WE’VE SEEN
AND WE’RE NOT LITTLE CHILDREN
AND WE KNOW WHAT WE WANT
AND THE FUTURE IS CERTAIN
GIVE US TIME TO WORK IT OUT
Nah, this is not a cryptic post – that would be out of my character. The song was just stuck in my head all evening, maybe for a reason…maybe not!
I do feel a bit like I am on a road to nowhere, for the past 6-7 months, ever since I got ill (w00t, time surely flies when you are having fun eh!), but the road I am on seems to lead me to my destination soon: full recovery and back to ..well, nowhere! Isn’t it so that all will pass and all will get better? For me, for Sy, for everyone!
Maybe I kinda like the idea of going and getting nowhere for a while. With Sy and Parrot. And our friends in SL. Old friends and new friends. Lost friends too.
Nice bridge, Cait! Lost friends. Yeah, I have those too. For all kind of reasons, as it goes in life – Second or real.
In real life I’ve discovered that once you are ill and require a different kind of attention, you scare people away. It’s awkward for them, so it became awkward for me too. I had to ‘clean up’ my real life friendslist so to speak. Funny enough I had to do that myself, because people find it uneasy. I don’t. I never have. If a friendship is beyond repair or just…over, then get it over with and cut the crap.
Same in Second Life. Suppose I am on your friendslist and you want to get rid of me. By all means: don’t bother to wait till I am offline to ‘unfriend’ me. I am basically online 24/7, so that makes it tricky. I say: if you feel the need, for whatever reason, to unfriend me: DEWIT! I will not ask for a reason, as I suppose you have a good one. I will not stalk you, gossip about you. I will just continue my SL, after maybe some self-reflection and thoughts, but hey: I do the same, really, it is okay. Both RL and SL can be so easy.
