As you can see, I took that good long nap after my last post. It has been a great rest, one that I sorely needed. Part of my rest included taking a break from Second Life, too. I’ve been back in-world for a little bit of time now, and simply enjoying myself and not taking things too seriously. As people who know me will attest, it is hard for me to keep quiet, though. So I’ve decided that rather than permanent retirement of this blog, I’ll post when the mood strikes me. If you can stand gaps between posts, I hope you’ll keep reading. 🙂
Part of enjoying myself has been visiting new places and meeting new people. This has been great fun; I’ve made many new friends and encountered some fascinating people. Sure, just as in our first lives, it is easy to meet people, but difficult to people with whom you truly connect. I’ve noticed something very interesting, though. I find that within four or five lines of text, I tend to get a sense if there is any potential for a connection with a person. And, at the same time, I also get a sense if I might need to hit the mute button, too. Are you nuts, Lanna? Do you really know these things in just a few seconds? Peek after the jump to find out!
