Not as good as my old pop-up book


In 1978, when I was a young, innocent,  Caity, I had my first crush. The object of my affection was Han Solo – later I learned this was Harrison Ford, but for me in those days he was Han Solo – and I was deeply in love with him. My grandfather bought me a pop-up…

‘Come as you are’ – for Art at the Park


A few weeks ago I got an invitation from Inara Pey, who invited me to display my work at Holly Kai Park – for their monthly exhibition ‘Art at the Park‘. I was hesitant at first, it is no secret I am not a fan of SL photo-works being displayed Inworld. I simply do not…

Stop.Reset.Breathe – A reply-post


My friend Beth has gone through a rough Second Life summer and today she posted an article on her blog, explaining why she has reset her Second Life past and purged her Flickr, virtually erasing a couple of months. I think we, Second Life residents, can relate to that. Second Life is, for most, not…

Reciprocal


Reciprocal, one of those words I cannot pronounce out loud without breaking my tongue. Admitting the Dutch word for it (wederkerig) is so old-fashioned,  I doubt anyone born before 1960 knows what it means! Why this pondering over a word I cannot pronounce properly and which is so out of date in my native language?…

Hunting Hollows


In the mood for some SL exploring, I ended up at Hunting Hollows. Yeah, it is a Halloween themed sim, but a pretty cool one for just wandering around – even when you are not into Halloween. Upon landing you are offered a folder which contains a flashlight, handy…because the place is quite dark. Very…

I’m drawing the AFK series to a close with a fifth and final novel, AFK, Awaiting. The book has been finished for a few months, now, and I’m grateful to the feedback I’ve had since from a small number of advance readers, in particular Caitlin Tobias and Zoe Parness…

When life gives you pears!


Over the past years I started some groups on Flickr – with themes. Just for fun, so people could add their photo’s that fitted in the same theme and so create some wonderful collections for all to enjoy. While it was fun at first, it became a burden  – specially the past 2 years. Oh,…

Maybe that is why


the old man could not remember and didn’t recognize any of his children, nor his wife except the little pup his daughter brought on visits he knew her name and her favourite treats maybe that’s why when the old man went on his last journey the pup, just like that,  traveled with him so he…

The Pillars – by Oberon Onmura


Though my Flickr stream may give the impression I am always clubbing or shopping, this is not quite true. Most of my inworld time I spend either helping members of the SL Blogger Support Group and exploring and enjoying new locations and art installations. The past weeks I’v been taking things easy, due to the…

‘Just take a seat, they’re always free’


Summer in Second Life is,  for me usually ‘the lonely season’ and this year it seems worse than ever. It’s okay, I guess. I’ve gotten used to the sound of an incoming IM and it being from some disappointing group-chat instead of a friend, but hey hoo:  my friends will return from their vacations and…
