#88 Mem’s Gallery

Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst. -Henri Cartier-Bresson

Every so often I look around my small gallery and wonder – why?

Why do I have a gallery? Why do my friends like me to have a gallery? Why have I chosen these, of all my photographs, to display? Are these still part of my 10,000? Why have I displayed them like this?

I wonder – what do visitors see? What thoughts or feelings are raised?

Currently Mem’s Gallery is housed in a cute little cottage at the top of a hill, surrounded by flowers and trees; part of our New Zealand themed sim.

If you have a chance to pop in and look around please send me your feedback – thoughts, feelings, ideas. Constructive feedback can provide inspiration (or desperation?) to push through  to keep on changing and growing.

#9 Home is where?

This week has been a surprisingly challenging one for me. After 3 settled years on the corner of an agricultural sim we got this notice….

Second Life® is a dynamic world that’s constantly changing.  We have come to the conclusion it’s best to move some people around.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.   We need to ask all residents of this sim to move to another sim ASAP.

In spite of being offered random options in several other sims-  I still felt like a refugee – displaced, homeless, sold out. It seems that corner lots with land companies that let you terraform and build what you want are rare and special.

Along the way I saw this cute freebie cottage –
