Backflash September 2021 – “Strict Ballet Academy” (September 2011)

In the “Backflash” series I select an old entry once a month and present it here. This way I force myself to browse in the archive and to fresh up a few of the many memories. For our readers the series shall provide an insight into our Second Life without reading back the many posts and it might also give reason to browse through the archives.
For August 2021 I scrolled back 10 years and selected a post from September 2011: “Strict Ballet Academy”. We really have had a varied time in our Second Life so far, trying out many things and kinks. The Strict Ballet Academy (SBA) is something Jenny and I do remember very well – and the textures of it and the building is still somewhere deep in my inventory.

Enjoy reading!


Strict Ballet Academy

We added a new place to our home sim – the Strict Ballet Academy (SBA). The following text was written by titta, Delilah, Jenny and myself. Enjoy learning more about the Academy.

tittia:
When I was young girl I was in ballet. I loved it and did it for many years. First classical and later I tried  jazz ballet. Somehow the elegance and hard work attracted me. Looking back on that period I liked the way my ballet mistress was harsh and strict.  So I guess that memory with the BDSM theme made me founding the SBA some time ago.
I started it first as a Ballet Mistress but in time I realised there was something stronger deep inside me. Now I am a slave and therefore there isn’t a place for me to be in front of the classroom.  I wanted  to keep the SBA alive and my lovely family were with me on that point. So in good consultation with my Mistress Dio, we decided to bring new life in this wonderful and exciting place. Mistress Dio and her family members did a great job to keep the right spirit and rebuild the SBA on another sim. I’m proud and happy to see that there is a bright future for the SBA in front of us.

Delilah :
Hearing about this place after I joined the family made me curious and one evening, as I had time with tittia, I asked her to take me to visit the place and she accepted. First thing she did was to lead me to the dressing room and made me wear a Ballet Slut uniform which, I have to say, immediately turned me on and made me wet and shameful. (Even today, as I write those lines, and as I come back for that in this place which is about to disappear, and where I had occasions of several memories of a very *different* way since that, I can’t help but still feeling a bit dizzy about that particular first moment.)

Then she led me to the ballet studio and made me do a tour of the possibilities there. She didn’t give me a real lesson, but that was enough to get me really excited, and we both agreed it was very sad to let this place unused because of the lack of Mistresses to run it. Then I had an idea — and I couldn’t have foreseen what this idea would bring! I suggested an agreement to tittia than she would form me as a Ballet Mistress: she would give me lessons to make me know this world better “from the inside”  and then I could make the SBA reopen. Of course we had to ask Mistress Diomita if she would agree with that… She did not *only* agree, she immediately showed herself really enthusiastic at the idea.

Later on the night, as everybody had get to bed except our night owl vanessa and me, I talked about that event with my sis, and showed her the uniform. Just seeing me in this seemed to make her the same effect than it did to me to discover it by wearing it. And when I logged back in the next evening, I found vanessa in this uniform, and Mistress Dio said to me she ordered her to stay in it until otherwise told. And yet vanessa didn’t say anything to Mistress about the previous night. Funny how the things go. Quickly I went to give my first lesson as Ballet Mistress to vanessa, under the eyes of Mistress Dio who told me she was very pleased about it. Some other lessons followed. Today I realize it was these details that betrayed Mistress Diomita’s enthusiasm about all that, an enthusiasm which would soon give unexpected results.

So she started to talk about moving the SBA to the Eurobrats’ island, up the Hotel California,  next spring when the lease of the previous place will end. Then, about moving without waiting so long. Then, not only about moving but improving: bigger place, more furnitures, scripts… And then she started to build. One night Miss Jenny and Mistress accompanied me to “Miss S.” shop, so I could show them what tittia suggested it would be good for me to wear as working as Ballet Mistress; and instead of that, Mistress Dio started to talk about the idea to make an uniform for all the Ballet Mistresses. We spent some few time to debate how it would look, and she contacted Scissor Serpente to order it.

And here we are, not only tittia and me but also Mistress Diomita and Miss Jenny, standing in our brand new and sexy Ballet Mistress uniforms in this huge place that is the new SBA , above our Mount Everest. There is still a changing room and an office, but the Exercise Hall that replaces the previous Ballet Studio is far more big than it was. And we have a brand new Correction Center to deal with some undisciplined students. And there’s also something more that we have: some very exciting perspectives for the future of this place…

tittia, Jenny, Diomita, Delilah – at the new Strict Ballet Academy

Diomita:
I met tittia at her Strict Ballet Academy. She showed me the place and I got the ballet slut uniform. And just a few seconds later I found myself excited in a submissive position… and I admit I enjoyed it a lot. I considered to become a student. When I met tittia later again I saw her submissive side and I couldn’t resist to explore that side. And this exploration ended when I collared her as “Maurer’s Prima”. Her tag implies already that she’s a ballerina – my ballerina, our ballerina. The founder of the Strict Ballet Academy.
Building the Academy on our home sim was a lot of fun as I like building. And we made a lot of plans and most of those plans will become reality sooner or later. For right now we want to reopen the Academy. My first plan is to get some more family members involved and hopefully also some of our other family and friends. If we get more of us instructing at the SBA we will be able to take a few more students, and to run the place a bit more frequently and maybe even to advertise for it.
As Jenny and I care a lot about our family our time to instruct ourself will be limited. But I should be able to supervise. And I look forward to use the new place and the background of it. In my opinion the ballet offers a great opportunity for role playing. And that might add some different fun for us and even become a family hobby for the Eurobrats.
I am quite open for enjoying the SBA at the most.. and we did already have a lot of fun just by moving, building, furnishing and getting the right clothes. So if it is just our family hobby I will be happy with it. If there’s developing more – even better.
Be sure to get a tour and consider applying for a first lesson.

Jenny:
This project came at exactly the right time for us. It has given us both a focus and an opportunity to involve and include our family.
When we developed our family as a couple we moved from Rivers Rock and Dragon Cove and finally to Mount Everest. During these moves we have focused on making a home for our family and now with the Academy the focus has shifted to making this a family venture.
It has been a delight to see the energy and enthusiasm from all sides and for this reason alone it has been a great success.

Diary 2021 (122) September 11th/12th The Jenny Maurer Twins

When I peeked into Second Life on Saturday, September 11th, later morning, Mistress Jenny was inworld. I met her at club Domme a Domme. We caught up with our mutual news first. Mistress was in a quite domme mood. She took me to club DeLust and ordered me to sit on the cushion next to the chair she had chosen to sit on. The cushion was an human seat cushion, the one that I often use myself to sit on or rezz for Mistress to sit on a slave.
After a while Mistress asked another guest to have a seat on me ….
We returned home when it was time for Mistress and me to tend to our RL again. pet was at home and happily barked seeing us. I could get use to having a pet *winks*.

September 11th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme, at club DeLust and at home in our skybox

Mistres stored me at the wall in our skybox and teased me badly posing in front of me and rubbing herself. Then she left me frustrated and helplessly locked up.

When I returned inworld in the early afternoon, Mistress Jenny was already present. She unlocked me and led me to her throne to get licked by me. I licked her with passion and desire and got the next does of her intoxinating sweet poison falling deeper into submission to her. But this time Mistress had different plans. We went to xtra Ordinairy and I got the same latex business dress that Mistress was wearing since the day before. Furtheron Mistress took me to the hairstylist … and soon we were twins. Mistress even unlocked my slave collar and exchanged it with my partnering collar.

September 11th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home

We went to club Domme a Domme and to Puerto Esclava and we got quite some nice comments. We were wearing cuffs and had all keys out, yet nothing happened of course. It will be fun teasing our slaves and subs – double trouble for them (or double fun) *winks*. We had a quite full and varied 2 hours together that afternoon.

September 11th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at Puerto Esclava

We had a relaxed night. Flo, slave Holly, pet and slave Alessi were inworld and we played a round of greedy first. Angelique joined us and watched. After the game I really had to pee urgently and retreated with slave Holly.
We all went to Psi’s realm and spent the night there. We chatted amoung us and we teased our slaves and pet – nothing more and nothing less.

Sunday, September 12th, I met with Jenny in the later morning and it was at me to select an outfit for us twins. After we had changed we went to club Domme a Domme and to Heavy bondage Club. At coub Domme a Domme I really was flooded with IMs for what reason ever! But overall we had fun being together and trying to find any trouble – of course without any success.

September 12th: Jenny and Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at Heavy Bondage Club

We met again in the afternoon and went to Carnal Intentions for a while. Jenny had an idea to make something different. We went table dancing at club Delust. Unfortuantely whilt club DeLust is full almost anytime, there wren’t many guests and none who’s interest we could catch. We went to Puerto esclava next and danced on the court there – no tips *pouts*, no comments … Finally we went to club Domme a Domme and pole danced there. While it was full in the monring, it was almost empty in the afternoon. Again, no remarks nor comments, but Jenny and I had fun exposing ourselves. To complete our dancing afternoon we went to the Lesbian Loft and danced together there. Angelique came by there and we exchanged a few words. And that’s about the twin’s afternoon.

September 12th: Jenny and Diomita dancing as twins at club DeLust, Puerto Esclava, club Domme a Domme and Lesbian Loft

At night Jenny ran late and I played two rounds of greedy with slave Alessi and Flo. slave Holly came inworld after the first round, Jenny after the second. We decided to stay at home and took the girls to our stonehaven patio. Jenny rezzed 3 of her thrones, and took slave Holly to serve her. I took slave Alessi to serve me. And Flo? She sat between us and enjoyed her role as head maid and senior sub *laughs*. We had fun with some batner and with teasing the slaves.

September 12th: Jenny and Diomita at home with Flo, slave Holly and slave Alessi

After Flo had drunk enough wine she retreated to her hut and we took slave Holly and slave Alessi to Carnal Intentions for a short while. we didn’t stay too long as slave Holly had an early start the next day. When we returned home, Faye cam inworld. We had in mind changing her outfit after she was in the hibble suit for quite some time. We took Faye to the stonehaven patio and spend the rest of the night with setting her up properly in a catsuit, harness and hood.

After all that was a nice and full weekend.

Simploring 2021 (30) Beaufort Castle

For my simploring tour on Tuesday, September 7th, I picked Beaufort Castle from scoop.it Sl Destinations https://www.scoop.it/t/second-life-destinations.

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (1) – overview

Beaufort Castle, or more precisely “Beaufort Castle Estate, Highlands of Scotland“, is embedded into other Scottish places. The landmark description is short but fitting very well and provides the basic information:
A virtual recreation of Beaufort Castle in Beauly Scotland. The castle is a 19th century Scots Baronial castle in the region of Beauly, located in the Highlands of Scotland of SL. Built by Ethan MacAlpin, Earl of Evergarden. Outlander fans welcome!

Beaufort Castle Estate, Highlands of Scotland is located in a moderate sim, the castle and the park consume 3750 prims, which may give you an impression how detailed it was built in Second Life. Actually it is the virtual counterpart of Beaufort Castle in Scotland.

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (2) – Beaufort Castle in the physcial world

I looked it up at wikipedia:
Beaufort Castle or Castle Dounie (Scottish Gaelic: Caisteal Dhùnaidh) is a Baronial style mansion built in 1880 and incorporating older building work. It is situated on the right bank of the River Beauly near the town of Beauly in Inverness-shire and is 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Kiltarlity and 13 mi (21 km) west of Inverness. There has been a castle on the site since the 12th century. Beaufort was the traditional seat of the Lords Lovat until 1994 when it was sold by the 15th Lord Lovat to meet inheritance taxes.” (source wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beaufort_Castle,_Scotland)

From the outside Beaufort Castle is already quite impressive and I took many pictures and tried several environment settings, which changes the character of the castle a lot.

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (3) – outside views

I walked inside and found a teleport and information quite next to the entrance inside. I grabbed the notecard about the castle:
Beaufort Castle in the Highlands is closely modelled on the RL castle and features three main levels accessible by a tower staircase. It is currently the largest building in the Highlands of Scotland of SL and was built by Ethan MacAlpin (Ethan Evergarden), with select stain glass by Axaria MacAlpin (Axaria Evergarden). Enjoy a stroll through the informal gardens and glens around the castle or find the hidden doors and passageways inside. The Lord and Lady Evergarden welcome you to Beaufort Castle in the Highlands of Scotland! Be sure to visit our other regions-we have a total of seven now, including Beauly, Dornoch, Glen Coe, Greater Loch Ness, Inverness City, Loch Ness and Urquhart.
(taken from the notecard availabe at the castle)

Inside the castle is almost completely furnished, although there would be space for more furniture. But the spacious rooms and hallways fit to the character of the castle.

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (4) – inside views

There’s all you would expect: Historic RL pictures of the Beaufort Castle and pictures of the virtual counterpart at the walls, pictures of the the owner family in Second Life – Ethan MacAlpin (Ethan Evergarden) and Axaria MacAlpin (Axaria Evergarden), knights in armour standing alongside the hallways, fireplaces, seating opportunities, a music room and a room with wine, a library room, an everyday dinning room and a real big event and dinning room over 2 floor with a decorated ceiling.

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (5) – inside views

Visiting and exploring Beaufort Castle was pure fun. There are some hidden doors and rooms, which provides a little bit of adventure for the visitor. I really enjoyed my visit and going to the other places that are mentioned in the notecard that I grabbed is now on my to do list (I need a 3rd and 4th life to cover all of my passions!).

Impressions of Beaufort Castle (6) – a view back when I finished my visit

Thank you Ethan MacAlpin (Ethan Evergarden) for building Beaufort Castle and for sharing it publicly. Great work!

Diary 2021 (121) September 9th/10th Freaky Friday

When I came inworld Thursday, September 9th, in the afternoon, Mistress Jenny wasn’t yet present. I went to Puerto Esclava, where Mistress joined me just a few minutes later. I had slave Lily (Lily Bloodrose) in IM and Lily joined us at Puerto Esclava. We spent about an hour there with slave Lily who was eager to give us more control and we let her feel our control. We left her there locked on (short) timers and went on to club Domme a Domme.

Mistress was in a quite dominant mood, maybe also initiated by slave Lily. When I asked her to be excused as I had to pee, she granted it but put me into crawl. When I returned Mistress continued teasing me and I knelt at her feet. Mistress forced me to repeat my mantra in Im and in mainchat and when I tried out my limits and provoked her, she changed, she dragged me behind her making a round at club Domme a Domme, then she took me home.

September 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava with slave Lily / Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at club Domme a Domme and at home

Mistress Jenny has evil methods for punishing me and she selected a mean one from her repertoire. I can tell that I felt really sorry but I couldn’t make it unhappen again. I will not share what it was, just that it kept me on my toes all night lateron. Mistress Jenny consoled me before we left to tend to our RL, but she wouldn’t stop my punishment.

Our night began relaxed. We played fetch the stick with our pet and when Flo came inworld we had our regular game together, Flo and also pet left early just after our game – and slave Holly came inworld. We went to Puerto Esclava. To my surprise Mistress Jenny ended the punishment. Thank you, Mistress Jenny!
Mistress had changed and was looking really stunning and she got praises from everyone. The outfit wasn#t new, but looked different and way better together with Mistress Jenny’s new hairstyle.

September 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava with slave Holly

We moved on to Carnal Intentions and I fixed our slave at a display stand. I teased her and we chatted amoung us. Time flew by again way too quickly.

September 9th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with slave Holly / slave Holly’s restricted view on my feet

There’s not much to report about Friday, September 10th. I was inworld for almost an hour in the late morning and has a short rp with someone just 3 weeks in SL. I can’t believe that you learn SL that quickly … anyway, I returned at night. Mistress and I had talked about a theme and Mistress cam up with: “It is not just Friday again and hence time to celebrate the start of the weekend, it’s Freaky Friday! Wear a wig and come as somebody else, or just come as you are. DJ Virgo is spinning the tunes.”
Hence at night I first selected a wig, then went seeing slave Holly, pet and Flo. Flo, slave Holly and I started a skipee and played until it was time for our party. Mistress Jenny came inworld in time as well.

September 10th – Friday night party: Diomita, pet (Newlifeloading), Mistress Jenny, Angelique, slave Holly, Flo, Elena (Elenaslv Serenity), Baroness Capelo (upper row), Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Sara (SaraRandall), Jayson Dakota, Firefly Dakota, Claven Albatros, Laura (Laura00175), Virgo Babii (lower row)

The party was fun once again! I kept mixing up myself with Mistress Jenny and vice versa, slave Holly with her white hair and glasses looked also Diomita-ish, Claven wore an afro look, Della and Starry were Romans..
Another great start into the weekend.

Art in Second Life 20210 (91) “Red Sky” by Mihailsk

Together with the invitation for her own exhibtion “One Day” at Nitroglobus Roof gallery (read about “One Day” here), Dido Haas also invited me to see the exhibtion “Red Sky” by Mihailsk. It is shown in the annex to the Nitroglobus Roof gallery, the space that Dido has dedicated originally to display her own art but that is also used to feature the art of other artists every once in a while.

I came across Mihailsk not long ago in July 2021 and also at Nitroglobus Roof gallery visiting the exhibtion “Baptism of Fire” by Mihailsk (read here)

Red Sky” consists of 8 pictures. These 8 pictures have in common that they are situated under a red sky. Dido prepared the exhibtion space to enhance the red sky with red light poles and a sculpture from Nitro named “High Emotions” and with a few red/purple trees, that were made by Venus Adored just for Dido.

Mihailsk writes in the accompanying notecard about “Red Sky“:
“The color red symbolizes intense situations and emotions but at the same time it indicates warning and danger. My red sky is a sky which reflects strong human emotions, covering them like a blanket and thus giving a sense of safety and hope.
Danger, longing, visualization, power, love, pain, balance, joy.: eight human moments under the red sky.

Impressions of “Red Sky” by Mihailsk (1)

Mihailsk is from Greece and in Second Life since 2014. Mihailsk started photography in Second Life and according to his own words, that was when he really started his journey in Second Life:
It was January 2020 when I started this beautiful journey in light, colors and emotions. A journey to fantastic places and loved persons, trying to capture special moments in eternity. Sometimes with a smile, sometimes with pain. Each of my images is a part of me, an expression of my mood at that particular moment.
I wish to share with people what I see and what I feel, rejoicing when I manage to make someone see through my eyes and feel with my soul.

Impressions of “Red Sky” by Mihailsk – “Love” (2)

Nitroglobus Roof Gallery is owned and curated by Dido Haas. Thank you, Dido for providing the space for the art and for enabling the exhibition “Red Sky” by Mihailsk. Thank you Mihailsk for your art, even when you yourself consider not being an artist – you are! I enjoyed my visit.
Red Sky” by Mihailsk shall be open until mid of October 2021.

Diary 2021 (120) Sept 7th/8th Within the family

Tuesday, September 7th, became an intense day in Second Life for me. I went inworld in the later monring and had in mind to go simploring. Instead I had an exciting encounter that kept me inworld until I had to leave for lunch. And no, I won’t share anything more here.
After lunch I maed a second attempt to go simploring. To my surprise Mistress was present and I went seeing her. She couldn’t stay long and I went simploring for an hour.
When Mistress Jenny came back inworld, I returned home. slave Holly was also inworld and hence we took her with us to club Domme a Domme. I had quite something to fill Mistress in about my morning and slave Holly had also some news. I really don’t know if there were many others at club Domme a Domme as I was busy chatting with Mistress and slave Holly. slave Lily (Lily Bloodrose) joined us just when were were about to return home after one hour at the club. slave Faye just came inworld at the same moment when we arrived home, but I really had to return into my RL.

September 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita a club Domme a Domme with slave Holly and slave lily (picture in the middle taken by slave Holly) and at our lof skybox

Mistress Jenny decided to store me leashed and locked at our loft skybox, be it because she was up to it, or because of my experience in the morning or simply because she can. She said, I’d have to earn my release – and I know what she was referring to.

When I returned at night, Mistress was already waiting for me. Withour further ado, she took off her skirt and panties and invited me to lick her. I must have done a good job as I earned being released from the cuffs. I enjoyed licking Mistress and I got my so needed fix. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

We went seeing our pet next. pet was at home in her basket and she showed it proudly to Mistress Jenny. We went to sNr puppy park with our pet and she could move her bones a bit there. Much better than if we had to walk her. When Flo showed up inworld we returned home and had our almost regular game of skipee with her. pet was at my side, Alessi knelt at Mistress side when she came online. Mistress Jenny won the close game.

September 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home, at sNr puppy park with pet and playing skipee with Flo at home

After the game we moved on to Carnal Intentions and stayed there all night. I was talking all night, first with pet in IM, then with Flo. After Flo and pet had left to bed, slave Faye and slave Holly literally replaced them as they came in when the others left. And i was talking again, this time with slave Holly and slave Faye. And all the time I was also talking with Mistress Jenny. I had a real chat night, not bad though at all. Later Argi joined us as well and added some main chat.

September 7th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Argi, pet, Flo, slave Alessi, slave Holly and slave Faye

At midnight we returned home and called it at night. It was a full day in Second Life for me.

Wednesday, September 8th, I was inworld during the morning and was lucky again to meet Mistress Jenny unexpectedly. She was at Heavy Bondage Club and we met there to catch up with our news. slave Lily (Lily Bloodrose) came by and joined us until Mistress Jenny had to leave.
I myself stayed a bit inworld and went shopping. I had seen something nice at club DeLust and had made notes. I found the according clothes at a fair and at the marketplace and got it all. I was quite satisfied. slave Holly came inworld just when I was about to leave. This way I got an footkiss before I left into my RL.

September 8th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Heavy Bondage club in the morning with slave Lily and at night with Flo and pet

I wasn’t inworld in the afternoon but for a few minutes. At night I ran late because of my RL. Flo was playing skipee and pet was waiting for me. Mistress Jenny came inworld just a minute after me. We played a round of skipee with Flo first, then we went to Heavy Bondage Club, where Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) joined us.
Mistress and I had a relaxed night. After Flo and pet had left for bed we made a little sim hop visiting Puerto Esclava and club DeLust. Mistress was up for finding some trouble, but of course we didn’t find any.

Art in Second Life 2021 (90) Waiting by Cica Ghost

Sunday, September 19th, I got an invitation from Cica to see her newest installation named “Waiting“. I was surprised getting it, as I just had visited her installation “Sandcastles” (read here), which is already gone now.

Right upon landing, it felt different from what I saw before from Cica. First of all you get big and highly visible recommendations to use shared environment, advanced lighting and shadows from sun, moon and projectors. Cica even provided a picture how it should look like at the landing to make sure, that you use the right settings. The environment settings are very important as they are part of the installation “Waiting“.

Waiting by Cica Ghost is not what I expected to see, and I didn’t leave the installation with a smile in my face like I usually do when I see something of Cica. No Cica-ish animals with big eyes, no Cica store and no hidden cat.
The ground is brown and desiccated – and the sky looks like desiccated ground as well. Acutally after a while you don’t know where is up and where is down. The trees have no leaves, the are just dead and do they root in the sky or in the ground?

Impressions of “Waiting” by Cica Ghost (1)

What you see first when entering the installation are a few buildings. These look a bit “Cica-ish”. I went there and found the first buildings empty. On a high plateau many, really many people cower together as if they seek nearness all being scared of something. It is a very dark and intimidating scenery.
A few people are not cowering on the high plateau but walking around in search of something. In one building cowers another person. Has there just been a catastrophy?

Impressions of “Waiting” by Cica Ghost (2)

Time waits for no one” is the message Cica Ghost provides with “Waiting“. And to be honest, I don’t know what Cica wants to express. As with every art installation, it is what the spectator feels, the visitors have to interpret the art for themselves. My first thought was that the people on the high plateau fled from a flood and that is why the cower on the high plateau – the result of climate change? But then all is desiccated, another result of climate change? Desiccated because of the higher temepratures? Some people try to explore what is left, they try to accomodate, others hide alone in a corner, but most just wait and let happen what will happen.
Well, that is one (that is my) interpretation. But depending on the visitor’s mood, on the personal situation one might get to a totally different interpretation.

Impressions of “Waiting” by Cica Ghost (3)

What else? Two rope nooses but they are not hanging there to commit suicide, instead you can sit there and watch. You can also dance … there are some nails sticking in the desiccated groud, clicking them animates your avatar. By the way, the music Cica has provided is not easy listening.

Time waits for no one – who knows how long “Waiting” by Cica Ghost will be available for a visit? It’s really worth a visit. What is your interpretation?

Addendum: after this post was published Cica Ghost sent me a message and told me what I missed. First of all there is a cat! And Cica had added it just for me – so sorry, Cica *winks*. Secondly there is at least one animal hidden in the dead trees, animals that can bear the aridity. Thank you, Cica.

Art in Second Life 2021 (89) “From my bed I dream of life” by SH Tutti

Saturday, August 21st, I had some time left before lunch and decided to visit Second Life Endowment for the Arts SLEA and to see another of the current installations there “From my bed I dream of life” by SH Tutti (secondhandtutti). Her installation is in the SLEA Region 3 and will be available until end of 2021.

Impressions of “From my bed I dream of life” by SH Tutti (1) – at the landing point

You get a notecard before entering the installation. SH Tutti wrote about her installation: “The visions of mortality. The visions of an artist. The dreams of creation.
A bed that floats in the middle (arrival point) over a body of water (emotions) and surrounding it in all directions are images (predominantly 3d) of the artist dreams: The vision of a city made of clouds that leads into a child’s playground of fantastical animal sculptures that leads into a dark cave containing a hint of monsters that leads into a spring nest of revival that leads into the ocean of Summer and LIFE!

Right when you arrive at the bed there’s another text introducing the installation:
My mind is unsettled… my body is not mine, not min this spectacle… no no, not mine this fragile vine. I remember… remember, Images play across the landscape out my window… I remember. And dreams ride the back of clouds, like lightbeams set free to carry me to places beyond me, yet inside me, above me, below me, floating out in all directions… Dreams of life, of creation, emotional capitulations gushing from this body not mine, not mine this viraled thing, lost in a track of time, resolved to watching clouds and dreams and nightmares and what ifs and one days. Oh how they carry me away.

From the landing you can see already quite a lot of colourful objects close by or far away. I walked around a bit and fall …. into the nightmare part. It’s not too scary, a strange faceless person is dancing there and there’s a way out. Moving along in the installation “From my bed I dream of life” is quite easy. You walk (no fly zone) and you get teleported somewhere else when you click on of the wake up signs. This way you can experience the different dream elements of SH Tutti. Alternatively you ride one of the 4 clouds right at the landing spot. Each one brings you to a different area of the installation.

SH Tutti must dream very colourful (unfortunately my dreams aren’t that colourful as much as I am aware about them). Her objects are artful interpretations of places, or fragments of the dreams. There’s a street with rowhouses in different colours, there’s a magic palace with a large dancing area before it. There’s a stage and a quite large auditorium (I assume used for the grand opening on August 16th, 2021).

There’s a circle of rabbits on the top of a rock, there are figures that reminded me of the sculptures made by Niki de Saint Phalle in the physcial world. There’s a colourful board with many geometrical forms and a throne where you can sit – afterwards I saw a sign behind the throne “Get a DNA Download. Have a seat“. Eeeep, someone manipulating my DNA?

There’s a nice love cloud, a big rainbow, a beach with two dancing figures. There’ simply a lot to see and discover. And everything changes permanently, moving clouds, shadows. SH Tutti plays a lot with transparent walls with textures applied to them. I hope that my pictures give an impression of what to expect when you visit – a dreamland, a fantasy, art.

I have come across SH Tutti (secondhandtutti) just once so far back in 2019 when I visited Lyric Art Gallery (read here). SH Tutti (secondhandtutti) is in Second Life sinceSeptember 2017. She says about herself:
I can create things whether people like them or not, it doesn’t matter, for it comes from inside me and for those willing or open to knowing me, they will see who I am through my builds, my art. Welcome to my world!
I hope my artwork will always remain light and joyful, a reminder of the wonder of fantasy. And please do remember I have a human heart, so please be kind.

SH Tutti has had quite a lot exhibtions since she joined SL. If you open the short biography of SH Tutti, that is embedded in the notecard about “From my bed I dream of life” you can get a list. SH Tutti is very active, she has her own blog, her own gallery spaces and showrooms, her own store on the marketplace  and she has a flickr account .

Thank you Tansee for your work for SLEA, thank you SH Tutti (secondhandtutti) for this installation. I enjoyed my visit.

Diary 2021 (119) Sept 5th/6th Enjoying our SL

Sunday, September 5th, I met Mistress Jenny by surprise in the later morning when I went inworld to check messages. We found time to catch up with our mutual news, then we both had to leave to tend to our RL. In the afternoon we spent almost two hours together at club Domme a Domme, at Puerto Esclava and again at club Domme a Domme. It was quite busy at both places, hence we had a lot to look at, to read profiles and to talk about. Lily Bloodrose joined us at club Domme a Domme and followed us to Puerto Esclava. I took her leash and I played a bit with her AnaVision HUD, an experience she hasn’t had before.
I had quite some IMs that kept me busy in addition. And when we were at club Domme a Domme the second time, another random subd knelt for us – to stay honest, she knelt more for Mistress Jenny than for me.
We had a good time in the afternoon and enjoyed being together.

At night I first went to Puerto Esclava and summoned pet (Newlifeloading) to me. I taught her a new command – move. If ordered she has to run around the court or the place for a few minutes, to bark and to move her bones. This way I spare walking the pet. We tried out two times to be sure that her little brain can proces the new command, then we returned home.

Flo and Angelique were at the games table and after saying hello Flo, Angelique and I played a round of skipee. And I could talk with pet, Angelique and Flo while we played. Alessi joined us at the table.
Mistress jenny came inworld right in time when we hat finished the game. We went to Psi’s realm and stayed there the rest of the night, mostly talking amoung ourselves as not much was going on.

Monday, September 6th, Mistress Jenny and I spent 2 hours together in the afternoon. We stayed quite a while at Puerto Esclava, chaught up with our news, talked about the family and discussed how to go on with who. We read profiles and had a few IMs. We moved on to club Domme a Domme where Faye joined us. And finally back home we said hello to slave Holly who had returned from a short trip in RL.

I was inworld early at night and our pet was at home. She needs a basket to sleep and she had found a nice one but had no inventory to rezz it. So we did that first and placed her basket on the porch. now she has her onw place to sleep and rezz. I toaught her three new commands – her brain was really almost overloaded. One command was “puddles”. If ordered she has to pee and to mark her spot. We tried it at home.

I took our pet to Puerto Esclava where Mistress Jenny joined us soon after. We tried the new commands and were satisfied with our pet. It’s not too bad having a pet and I enjoy it for right now. When slave Holly came inworld we moved on to Carnal Intentions and summoned her to us.
We stayed there the rest of the night, mostly chatting amoung us, following the little main chat, reading profiles and having a relaxed time together

Diary 2021 (118) Sept 3rd/4th Boot party / News from Kitty / pet life

Friday, September 3rd, Mistress Jenny was not inworld during the day. I spend quite a while inworld during the day, logging in and out, hopping over places, searching for trouble or anything else. I often also idled while doing other things in RL. Nothing really to report about. I had just a few IMs and even a few contacts that might result in a roleplay – but I doubt it. Finally I went visiting 2 exhibitions and wrote in our blog about them. This way my time was also a bit productive.

Mistress and I had spoken about our Friday night party and we fixed the theme. Well, to be honest Mistress proposed the theme and of course I agreed to it:
“These boots are made for walking, so throw on those kinky boots the higher the better and join us as it is Friday again. Of course you can also come as you are. Dj Virgo is spinning the tunes for us.”

I came inworld again at night and first thing i did was changing into a proper outfit for our party. Just when i wanted to go and see our pet (Newlifeloading), Mistress came inworld and we caught up with our news quickly before we went seeing our pet.
Mistress had another encrypted message from KTM (Kitty T. Maurer)

Hello Mistress Jenny,
all is well in Kitty’s world. Hopefully, it is the same for you. As for Kitty, all is well here. It might just be a good thing that Kitty is so busy. If Kitty wouldn’t have to work, who knows what ‘trouble’ Kitty would get herself into. SL-wise, things are good. The staff of the space station is taking good care of Kitty. Too good at times. *cough* They haven’t brought up the spying allegations as of late. Who knows – maybe they drop them altogether. There also hasn’t been anymore talk of attempting to sell Kitty.
Though, a few days ago, Kitty had a big scare. Traderr, the kidnapper who captured and intended to sell Kitty a few months ago, showed up here. Luckily it wasn’t to buy or sell someone. She was inquiring about the space station’s security system to use something similar for her prison (which Kitty already knows and which is rather secure).
Speaking of security, everything here is very secure and there is no good way of getting out. Kitty can walk around in the space station but certain areas are off limits. However, it is not possible for Kitty to leave. Kitty considered becoming a stowaway on one of the supply vessels that dock from time to time or even using an escape-pod. But after several attempts, it turned out that neither option is available to Kitty.
How are you? How is Mistress Diomita? Kitty is keeping up with the blog. Hopefully as is going well for both of you.
If you decide to send a reply, please use the same channel through which this message was sent. All other methods of communication have been blocked.
With lots of love from a galaxy far far away,
Kitty

Mistress replied to her….
I hope to get on SL in the morning again soon and might bring my pick lock set.
keep having fun

As for the party, we had fun as every Friday .. starting our weekend. We asked ourselves “Do puppies dance?” … Well I guess not like humans .. But I released a lot of pet’s restrictions for the party, so that she could have fun.

September 3rd – Friday night party: Angelique, Diomita, Mistress Jenny, pet, Angelique, pet (Newlifeloading), Dely Ebony (krysbia), Baroness Capelo, Claven Albatros, Laura (laura00175) (upper row), Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Sara (SaraRandall), Tsuki Takeda, Jayson Dakota, Talos (Talosborn), Sarah Fhang, vero Hartmann, Virgo Babii (lower row)

Saturday, September 4th, I spent again quite some time inworld – and not a lot happened. In the early afternoon, pet (Newlifeloading) was inworld and I took her with me to Heavy Bondage Club. I tightened her restrictions again, after I had released them for the party the day before. Then I took her to Puerto Esclava and went out of chat range with her. I tested her hearing and speaking abilities and adjusted her hearing to a level where she might be able to guess one or two words and her speaking abilities so that one could eventually understand a little bit of her garbling.

So far so good, a pet needs to learn some tricks. So I instructed pet to assume a sleeping pose when I sent her sleep (and thus make her unable to follow main chat at all) and to get up again when I wake her up. Furtheron I added the “close” to her vocabulary. She is to approach everyone who says “close, pet” and to give them a pethug.
I then took pet with me to the court where we tried out the newly learned tricks in public.

Dogs need to be walked and hence I took pet with me to Mesmerize Dungeon and later to club Domme a Domme and I played a bit fetch with her. So pet could move her bones and she was happy when she had to return to her other life.
Later I also had some chats again and one short roleplay, then I had to log out myself to make the most of the nice weather we finally had in RL.

At night I went to Puerto Esclava and I summoned pet to me after a while. I did not IM her and as she can’t start an IM herself she had to fully immerse into her pet life. I exercised her commands again and kept her attentive. Mistress Jenny joined us at Puerto Esclava even then pet had no IM. She behaved well.
Mistress gave me another update of our Kitty, who had sent another encrypted message:

Hello Mistress Jenny,
for lock-picking, it might be possible for you to make it inside the space station but you won’t be able to get Kitty out. They made Kitty swallow a pill that controls Kitty and also prevents Kitty from leaving.
It would most likely be better to negotiate terms of release with Lady Aleeri of Penumbra. She’s always in RP and a lot of fun to play with. So is, by the way, the rest of the gang here. Kitty would hope that you and Aleeri can come to an arrangement so Kitty may leave – even if it takes a little longer. This would also make things better for Kitty as cheating out just feels plain wrong.
xox KTM

… and Mistress Jenny answered her, that “a failed rescue mission is much better than cheating out

September 4th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Puerto Esclava with our pet (Newlifeloading)

We stayed quite a wihle at Puerto Esclava. We talked amoung us, I even IMd our pet so that she was able to talk and to share her emotions with me and us. pet made some nice pctures too, in particular she made partrait pictures of Mistress and me, very nice. We went one to Lochme, to Heavy Bondage Club and to club Domme a Domme. Mistress got a serious sleeping attack while we were at club Domme a Domme and left quite quickly.
