Simploring 2022 (17) Endless: Birdlings Flat

Following Inara Pey’s blog I cam across “Endless: Birdlings Flat” (read her post: An Endless: Birdlings Flat in Second Life).
Endless: Birdlings Flat” is the newest visual story from Sombre Nyx (sombrenyx). She had other “Endless” sims/stories before. I visited Endless 58-58N (read here) and Endless 58-58N “YES” (read here) in 2020.

The landing is on a seperate sky-platform with a few sheeps. There are two sign, each works as a notecard giver and teleporter. To visit “Endless: Birdlings Flat” you have to choose the according board of course.
The other board leads to “Forest” by Jackson Cruyff”. I visited this part as well. “Forest consists of trees, grasses, a few flowers, and other plants, a meadow, some animals here and there, and few signs of human visitation or habitation.” Jackson made Forest “to escape, and to find refuge.” But this post is about “Endless: Birdlings Flat“.

I grabbed a notecard written by Sombre Nyx (sombrenyx) at the board, then entered the sim.
This world is inspired by the small coastal settlement of Birdlings Flat, located in the South Island of New Zealand. The area was named for the first European family to begin farming the land there, and is now home to approximately 200 people who have chosen to enjoy the quiet lifestyle and wild, natural beauty of their isolated and sometimes hostile, sometimes beautiful, surroundings.

Impressions of Endless: Birdlings Flat (1) – landing platform / landing point at the sim at the crossing of the the street to Christchurch and to Birdlings Flat / at the end of the roat to Christcurch.

The landing is at a crossing where a street leads to Birdlings Flat. I decided to walk into the direction of Christchurch first. Where the road ends I walked down to the shore, which is quite full of rocks yet beautiful and very realistic.

The beach is well known for the semi-precious agates constantly being washed up onto the pebble shore (along with chunks of driftwood and occasional pieces of marine debris). It is equally well known for its savage winter winds, and for being a treacherous spot with strong currents and a severe undertow responsible for a number of drowning deaths over the years.

Impressions of Endless: Birdlings Flat (2) – CUSTAR Observation container / beach / sheeps

I walked up again and came to a container with a weather data station, a power generator and a jeep.

Designed as a means of studying the behaviour of atmospheric winds, and other phenomena, occurring between 3km and 15km in altitude, the Canterbury University Stratosphere Troposphere Radar (CUSTAR) was actively maintained as a research tool for several years … The system was decommissioned circa 2009.

From there I walked over the sim .. and saw sheeps and sheeps .. and well, sheeps.
I returned the the landing point and went into the other direction and up the hill at the end of the road. There is a landmark. A robot made of scrap parts. It seemingly guards the sim and seems to be a good fellow. From the hill you see down to a wooden path and there’s a cosy spot to watch the fish and seagulls.

Impressions of Endless: Birdlings Flat (3) – Outlook and robot

Between the outlook and the village is a lake, I named it “Eel pond” as at one end are wooden frameworks to dry eel. Sombre Nyx (sombrenyx) wrote: Lake Forsyth (Wairewa) has had a troubled past, with toxic cyanobacteria blooms regularly posing a health risk to both humans and animals. The primary cause of these blooms is the area’s high-phosphorus volcanic soil; contributing factors also include agricultural run-off, years when low rainfall causes the water level to drop to a point where plant matter cannot grow and clean the waters and contamination by farm stock. These issues are all being addressed now, and the quality of the lake’s water is improving.

Impressions of Endless: Birdlings Flat (4) – Eel pond / Lake Forsyth

Ngai Tahu, the local iwi (nation, extended kinship group), has sole title over the use of Lake Forsyth for fishing. Traditionally, eels were harvested in autumn – caught with poles, killed, hung on racks, dried and smoked – to provide a source of food throughout the following year. This custom continues today.

Finally I walked to the village. It is full of details, details of a life in this environment, poor but not unhappy at all. You can sense that people like to live here.

Impressions of Endless: Birdlings Flat (5)

I ended my visit at the beach again sitting at a spot to fish.
Endless: Birdlings Flat” provides an impression of living in such an environment. For sure a place I might never visit in real life and I had never heard about before. In Second Life we can visit such places and get at least an impression thanks to people like Sombre Nyx (sombrenyx). So thank you Sombre for creating it and making it available publicly. Sombre wrote in her notecard that Jon Thorson (jonthorsson) helped her in custom-building the pieces that have helped give this virtual representation of of Birdlings Flat its unique character. “Endless: Birdlings Flat” tells a visual story!
Many thanks also to Jackson Cruyff, who is the land owner and a dear friend of Sombre and provided the space and the ressources for “Endless: Birdlings Flat”.

Diary 2022 (99) July 17th/18th – Diomita recovering (a bit)

Sunday, July 17th, I came inworld in the later morning. Mistress Jenny had left a message for me. She had met our Kitty at Dee’s Cage Room (DCR) and shared a few pictures with me as well as a short conversation she had there with one of the other people at DCR. Kitty is a little cuddly teddy bear now! And …. some seem not to know her tendency to cause mischief (in a good sense of course).

XXX: just wanted to say its lovely to meet you Miss Jenny
Mistress Jenny: thank you loki
Mistress Jenny: you too
XXX smiles
XXX: oh and if i can just add, i see Kitty around quite often, she is polite, respectful and a real credit to You Miss Jenny…… now i will get outta your way…. enjoy your day and maybe see you again
Mistress Jenny: Kitty?
Mistress Jenny: the Kitty next to me?
XXX: yes
Mistress Jenny: Oh she can be real trouble
Mistress Jenny: you must be one of the lucky ones
Mistress Jenny winks
XXX: haha

July 17th: Mistress Jenny and Kitty at Dee’s Cage Room

I roamed around a bit visiting the usual clubs and tended to my RL again.

In the afternoon, I roamed again through the clubs, then I retreated to our skybox and waited for mistress Jenny, who came online at the time we had agreed on. We went to club DeLust and caught up with our mutual news there. And again we also talked about the day before, Saturday July 16th (read here), a day that might become important in Mistress and my relation. We also planned already something for the slaves in August. A productive afternoon!
We went to club Domme a Domme for a short time, then Mistress ordered me to wear my full elegance cuff set. She locked everything and parked me in her skybox at home.

When I returned at night I was not alone. Mistress Jenny had leashed slave Holly in her skybox as she had compassion with slave Holly, who was suffering of being not with me. slave Holly was also nicely restrained but had enough freedom to come closer to me and to lick my sweat, to lick my drool, to rub her face into my crotch and to feel me close … and that way to get her fix. After a while Mistress Jenny showed up and unlocked me and released my restrictions. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.

We went seeing Flo at the skipee table. We had a full house: Mistress Jenny, Flo, slave Holly, slave Alessi, Ebony Massey and Angelique … they all were at the skipee table. We said hello to everyone, chatted a bit, then Angelique and soon after also Ebony had to leave.
Mistress, slave Holly, Flo and I played a skipee as teams while slave Alessi watched us (she had some RL to take care of). It was a great game, very close and hence fun.
After the game we took Flo, slave Holly and slave Alessi to Carnal Intentions fo the rest of the night.

At Carnal Intentions I focused on slave Alessi that night. I took of her chastity belt, blindfolded and gagged her and led her to a dildo cushion. She rode the dildo in public – and she did well. I think it was the first time that we exposed her this way publicly. I had fun – and slave Alessi had an orgasm.
slave Sakura (Sakuramatsumoto) joined us at Carnal …

We returned home at bedtime. That night I wanted slave Alessi to stay overnight with slave Holly … of course Alessi obeyed.

And that’s it about Sunday…

Monday, July 18th, I met with Mistress in the afternoon. slave Sakura (sakuramatsumoto) was at home and we went seeing her. Mistress wanted some time with me alone and hence we brought slave Sakura to Psi’s realm and I tied her up there and leashed her at the wall. She will had some entertainment there. Mistress and I went to club Domme a Domme for a while. Then we met with Dely (krysbia) and talked with her….. and then our time was already up again…

July 18th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm with slave Sakura / at club Domme a Domme

At night Mistress and I were alone first. We went to club DeLust. Angelique showed up there and stand next to us. When slave Holly came inworld we returned home and had a skipee as teams, Mistress and Angelique against slave Holly and me. It had been quite a while since we played cards the last time with Angelique. It was a close game and hence it was fun. After the game Angelique left for bed.
We picked up slave Sakura at Psi’s realm and took her and Holly to Carnal Intentions. slave Sakura had some issues, crashing and returning several times. Anything else? Mistress teased me telling me that she will soon continue with what she began Saturday, July 18th (read here) … a deep going experience for me. I realized more and more that is is going to have a longterm effect on me.

Simploring 2022 (16) Blackwood Dreams

I post the pictures of this blog also on deviantArt (see here). The pictures of my simploring tours are also published on my flickr page. On deviantArt I got a comment from elenasg0 (thats the dA account name), who recommened a visit to “Blackwood Dreams“.

Blackwood Dreams is built on a full region, it has 2 full neighbour sim. My simploring tour was restricted to Blackwood Dreams. Blackwood Dreams is an adult sim (for good reasons).

The landmark description reads as follows:
Family farm built with love for you to come tour and relax.
One of three linked regions.
Carting Cosy Couples Cuddle Dairy KDC shop LGBT+ LoveBridge Lovense Milk Pony Ponygirl Puppy Scenic Shibari Steeplechase Views XXX

I zoomed out first to get an overview. The landing point is close to the boarder between Blackwood Dreams and the neigbour sim “Isla de Novella”.

Blackwood Dreams – bird eye view and overview map

Blackwood Dreams is owned by the Blackwood Dreams group. The group was founded by Kira Blackwood. Monica Blackwood, her partner, is also listed as an owner. But there are more people involved. The further names I could gather are Yelena McKay (yelena vanlager) and Katerina McKay (katmckay) and someone named Sika (I don’t found the SL username).

Impressions of Blackwood Dreams (1) – Around the landing point and walking through the village (look at the “Wanted” poster in the lower right, that’s me!)

If you enter the building where you land you can grab a folder with some gifts and 2 notecards with more information about Blackwood Dreams and about what to expect. The gift giving statue is a first hint that you are on an adult sim – although it is also just a lovely, somehow Southern Europe place with a lot of nature and beautiful views.

Hello dear visitor! Welcome to Blackwood Dreams
So what is this place? Blackwood Dreams a family home, and also an open place to share with visitors. We are very LGBTQA+ friendly; abuse is not tolerated .
Here you will find a lovingly crafted relaxing environment with many quiet cuddle spots and other things to find. To the south of Blackwood Dreams itself you will find 2 sims that are our friends and neighbors – happy exploring!
We also have Pony and Dairy themes here for you to enjoy, if those are of interest.
Pony and Dairy play are something that we enjoy on a casual fun basis, and so we wanted to bring those elements out here. Please feel free to explore and enjoy these themes on a casual basis here.
We hope you enjoy your time here.

Impressions of Blackwood Dreams (2) – Around the village and Farm – art show (lower left), KDC Shop (pony tack and gear) (upper right)

I strolled through the village visted the barn (obvioulsy for pony play), I visited the art show in one of the buildings and I had a look at the KDC shop. Then I followed the many paths to further explore the sim.
It is a lovely, picturesque sim that offers a lot of great views for taking pictures as well as many cosy places. I loved in particular the “Decor tube” along the way with which blooming flowers were planted – funny!

Impressions of Blackwood Dreams (3) – The Decor tube (upper left), the vegetables farm (lower left), a residential building (upper right) and the pony parcours (lower right)

Along the way I saw a vegetables farm, a residential building and a huge pony parcours. There’s a board with the top ranked ponies. Obvioulsy they have events and training here.
You can enjoy the beautiful landscape, visit a small harbour, sit down and watch the world go by at the lighthouse or enjoy cuddling at the cosy corner or walk along the shore and visit the waterfalls. All these places are just lovely and very well built.

Impressions of Blackwood Dreams (4) – Waterfalls, Lighthouse, Harbour and Cosy Corner

The paths lead you around the sim – and there are many paths. You walk through forests (there’s also chapel in the forest), you can walk up steep rocks (from where you have a great view over the sim) and the paths lead you also to the wind mill, that is a real landmark of Blackwood Dreams. Inside the wind mill is a Shibari Studio and of course I couldn’t refrain from trying it out, although I was not properly dressed (naked) nor did I have enough rope with me .. and I had no helping hand *winks*. Near the mill is also a Zen garden – and another Shibari gate. I hadn’t expected this kind of fun in the wind mill!

Impressions of Blackwood Dreams (5) – Wind Mill, Shibari area, and Zen garden

I doubt that I found all kinky areas of Blackwood Dreams. But I got an overview. Blackwood Dreams is a place for photograpehrs as well as for those who are into pony play or dairy play … or Shibari .. or .. just want to have kinky fun. I bet that the owners and the other involved people will be helpful if you have any questions.

Thank you Kira Blackwood, Monica Blackwood, Yelena McKay (yelena vanlager), Katerina McKay (katmckay) and Sika for creating Blackwood Dreams. I could sense that it is project you realized with a lot of love and passion. And thank you for sharing your place with the public.

Diary 2022 (98) July 16th – Ehesklavin Diomita

Saturday, July 16th, I had 90 very intense and exciting minutes with Mistress Jenny in the afternoon. When I came inworld Mistress was just changing her outfit. She changed the colour of her outfit from the Friday night party the day before to a shiny black. I myself was still dressed in red. We caught up with our news, then Mistress took me to club DeLust. She leashed me, which is for me at the same time her order to kneel by her feet. The club was not very full. I knelt at Mistress feet and simply enjoyed her nearness for a while. After some time I noticed how I long for her, how I desire her and I looked up to her and let out a silent moan. Mistress smiled, turned her back to me and ordered me to kiss her butt. I placed several kisses on her rubber covered butt. Mistress seemed to enjoy it. She went to a chair and sat down, lifting her butt up and ordered me publicly to kiss and to lick it. She used the trigger word “Ehesklavin” to which I am to respond “I am your perfect slave, Mistress”. Of course I followed her orders although I could feel the humiliation worshiping Mistress’ butt in public. Mistress on the other side enjoyed it. Finally Mistress sat down and I sat at her feet.

July 16th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at club DeLust

Mistress was up for more and for more audience. We left club DeLust and Mistress summoned me to club Domme a Domme. There she sat down in one of the chairs. She rarely sits down at club Domme a Domme. Mistress choose a standing pose with my head on her thigh. I kissed her thigh and I could literally smell her scent and got more and more craving for her. Mistress grab my head, pulled it into my neck and spit into my opend mouth. I swallowed her gift thankfully. Then she took ot a ringgag, gagged me with it and pulled the straps extra tight so that I couldn’t talk in main chat anymore. She also restricted my IM so that I could focus on her only, which I did anyway. I can’t even tell how many people were at the club. She continued humiliating me letting her spit drool into my mouth. The gag was tight and I began to drool uncontrollably. And I drooled on Mistress thigh. Out of the blue and fully unexpectedly for me Mistress slapped my face for this impudence. It took a while until I calmed a bit and could control my trembling.

July 16th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at club Domme a Domme

Next place we went to was Carnal Intentions. I hadn’t noticed before that they have a chair with the same animation as the chairs at club Domme a Domme. Mistress used that chair and continued having my head on her thigh. She asked me if I wanted more of her spit and that I shall nod if so. I nodded and Mistress donated more of her spit. She used the trigger word “Ehesklavin” again in main chat and as I couldn’t answer due to the gag she ordered me to answer in IM instead, which I did.
She continued teasing and humiliating me while I got more and more excited and craving for her. I was lost in my thoughts obviously because I didn’t hear her using the trigger word again in main chat. Mistress even tried to help me but I didn’t realize it. What I did realize painfully was another hard slap in my face. Oh my goad! Mistress was a bit upset and asked me to find out what I made wrong. It took a while until I realized it and answered her in IM “I am your perfect slave, Mistress”. Acutally it took too long, I made her wait too long – and got the third slap.
Mistress tied my arms on my back, then I had to lick her boots and worship her and show my thankfulness. Mistress Jenny provided quite a show for the other guests at Carnal Intentions. She decided to take me back home. When we left Carnal Intentions she remarked “Time for your punishment, Ehesklavin”…. “I am your perfect slave, Mistress”

Back home, Mistress took off her rubber hotpants and sat down in her queening seat. She ordered me to lick her to an orgasm – and not for my pleasure or my fix, but only because she desired it. Hence to make it harder for me, I stayed gagged. It is strange how something like that triggers the mind. I worked hard and I felt used. And my own pleasure and desire was really surpressed. I licked Mistress, for her pleasure only, to satisfy her desire and needs – and yes, I got my fix and the effect was there nonetheless.

July 16th: Mistress Jenny and Ehesklavin Diomita at Carnal Intentions and at home

After Mistress was satisfied and had her orgasm, she stood up and ordered me to lick and clean her ass. I licked her crack and her ass and cleaned it. I meant to taste something partly sweet, but my mind might have tricked me again. After that Mistress had to leave and to tend to her RL. I was very aware of the mistakes and my unattivenesses. After Mistress had released my cuffs and taken off my gag, I asked her for another slap because of my mistakes. Mistress didn’t hesitate a second and slapped me .. the forth time within these 90 minutes we had together. Before she left she ordered that I may not change clothing. I would not dare!
It was a very intense afternoon for me (and for Mistress Jenny)!

At night we first spoke with slave Sakura (SakuraMatsumoto) and exercised with her the collar commands and how to greet us with her. Flo came inworld and we started a skipee with her. We played two rounds. And while we played I continued exercising with slave Sakura, who was kneeling between me and Mistress at the game table. What took most of my attention during the game was talking with Mistress Jenny. Mistress confirmed that she had fun and she asked about my feelings. She had planned that afternoon with me – not in detail, not that day, but in general. Since my collaring in 2013, since my full submission to her back in 2016, she is expanding her control, slowly and persistently. It is part of her journey with me. And that afternoon was just another puzzle piece added in her longterm plans. And it is going on. In her opinion my devotion and submission has still room to grow. There’s no way back – as opposed to, Mistress has way more on stock for me and she prepared me for it in our conversation.
Talking and feedback are important in every D/s relation – and I was very thankful that Mistress took the time to talk with me about that afternoon. This way the two rounds of skipee went by very quickly. In the meantime slave Alessi had joined us.

We went to Carnal Intentions with Flo, slave Sakura and slave Alessi. It became a relaxed night for me, a night to wind down from what had happened during the day. While we were at Carnal Intentions I began to restrict slave Sakura and slave Alessi. I teased them and enjoyed.

July 16th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Carnal Intentions with Flo, slave Alessi and slave Sakura

After Flo had left for bed we moved on to club DeLust and sat down in two chairs there. Mistress had slave Sakura and I had slave Alessi at our feet. I continued teasing Alessi, who had to lick my boots publicly. I am quite satisfied with her progresses. It was already a bit after bedtime when we returned home, said good night to the slaves and retreated to our skybox.

July 16th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club DeLust with slave Alessi and slave Sakura

Mistress Jenny had played with my three collars, the partnering collar, my sub collar and my slave collar for years. She had changed them to express her expectations. And she had slowly extended the duration in my slave collar over the years. That must have been a part of her longterm plans for me. I am wearing the thick leather and steel slave collar without any break since January. Mistress had offered me wearing the sub collar when she went on vacation, but I wanted to please her and offered to keep wearing the slave collar even during her longer absence.
Before we said good night, Mistress Jenny predicted that I would beg her to keep me wearing the slave collar for more than one year by the end of the year. I might remember July 16th as another big step in our relation….

Simploring 2022 (15) Svarga

Our Kitty sent me the landmark of Svarga with the remark “Enjoy the ride!”

I admit I never heard about Svarga. I looked it up on wikipedia …
Svarga is one of the seven higher lokas (esoteric plane) in Hindu cosmology. The seven lokas consist of Bhuloka, Bhuvar loka, Svarga loka (Indraloka), Maharloka, Janaloka, Taparloka, Satyaloka. While these seven lokas and seven patala lokas form 14 lokas of our Universe, beyond these 14 exist Goloka, Manidweepa and such higher lokas of multiple Universes.
Svarga Loka is a set of heavenly worlds located on and above Mt. Meru where the righteous live in paradise before their next incarnation. During each pralaya (the great dissolution), the first three realms, Bhu loka (Earth), Bhuvar loka and Swarga loka are destroyed. Below the seven upper realms lie seven lower realms, of Patala, the underworld and netherworld. Lord Indra is King of Svarga.
Svarga is seen as a transitory place for righteous souls who have performed good deeds in their lives but are not yet ready to attain moksha, or elevation to Vaikunta, the abode of Lord Vishnu, considered to be the Supreme Abode states.
The capital of Svarga is Amaravati and its entrance is guarded. Svarga is presided over by Indra, the leader of the devas.

ok ok … that didn’t really help me.

I teleported to Svarga. Svarga is built on a full region, rated general. The landing is on a small island with a gazebo. Here you sit down on a huge wasp .. and the wasp begins to fly giving you a tour…

Diomita riding the wasp at Svarga

svarga wasp whispers: Welcome to a guided tour of Svarga

In European mythology Svarga or “Heaven” is the residence of the god Svarog.
the island was formed by the collapsed caldera of a very old volcano
Svarga itself is very old SL-wise
it was built in 2006 and nothing has been added since
at that time sculpted and flexible prims were not available in SL
so all content is original, built with basic SL primitives
Some artificial life experiment were conducted here
with plants that grow and multiply
at daytime you can still spot bees seeking flowers
and carnivorous plants eating bees
under this place, you can get a word from an ancient oracle.
by giving L$25 for charity

Impressions of Diomita’s tour around Svarga (1)

There was an exciting chat to sound experiment here
we hope to get it back soon
Come back with friends to that house later
and have fun with the elfin musical instruments
Up the central tower you will find books about SL
and from the bridges you get nice overall views of the island
need to relax a bit? stay here and enjoy the quiet floral environment
now taking you back to where we started

svarga wasp whispers: have a nice day in Svarga

Svarga is owned by a group, the group was founded by Laukosargas Svarog. On Laukosargas Svarog’s profile I found a bit of information:
Hello, these days I’m hardly ever in SL at all, I might pop in once every few months just to see how things are. I no longer sell anything and all my shops are closed. Svarga has a new owner now.

Impressions of Diomita’s tour around Svarga (2)

I couldn’t find out who is the owner now. Anyway, Svarga seems to be a classic sim, built back in 2006 (!), just I didn’t come across it yet. It looks nice and the ride with the wasp was fun. And the name “Svarga” does ring a bell now for me. If you visit – enjoy the ride!

Diary 2022 (97) July 14th/15th Hot Red

Thursday, July 14th, I was not inworld during the day. When I came inworld at night I first caught up with Mistress Jenny before we went seeing Flo, slave Holly and slave Sakura (SakuraMatsumoto). We first played a round of skipee as teams. It was a close game and slave Holly and I won it by just one card. In the meanwhile slave Alessi had joined us as well.
I noticed that club DeLust was comparably empty and we decided to fill it. We spent the rest of the night in the back part of the club overlooking the scene.

July 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club DeLust with Flo, slave Holly, slave Alessi and slave Sakura

We chatted amoung us and I teased the slaves byrestricting their vision and a bit more. With a slap every once in a while Ichecked their attention. I had no reason to complain. Mistress and I talked about the theme for our Friday night. That was fun as I had mentioned to Mistress that July 14th was the French National Day. That’s nothing a Brit would even consider to take notice of. That led to some silliness.

July 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club DeLust with Flo, slave Holly, slave Alessi and slave Sakura

Of course we agreed on a theme. It will be: “We expect a heat wave and it is already Hot Hot Hot. Wear something Red or some Hot Pants or come as you are (even naked) and dance the night away while Virgo plays the tunes.

Anything else? Not really. slave Holly and I just made quite some pictures…

July 14th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at club DeLust with slave Holly, slave Alessi and slave Sakura

Thursday, July 15th, I went inworld in the late morning to visit a gallery. Mistress Jenny was in-world and we caught up with our news. Mistress has priority in Second Life and she decided to take her property (me) with her to club Domme a Domme. She leashed me and locked my cuffs on my back. Instinctively in knelt by her feet. Mistress was pleased as she had in mind to shorten my leash. She re-enacted all rules for me and ordered me to wear the tag “Jenny’s Ehesklavin”. My time as her side had ended. Luckily I didn’t have to wear the tag “Ehesklavin” as that would have meant wearing ballet boots or no shoes. Thank you, Mistress Jenny.
Mistress Jenny left and I went visiting the gallery.

I returned in the afternoon. Mistress was at our sun terrace with slave Sakura. After saying hello and getting my subhug from slave Sakura, Mistress and I went to club DeLust and made slave Sakura decorate us. Lucy (MissLucyWales) joined us for a short time.

We stayed close to an hour, then we returned home and put slave Sakura in the small cage by the dance floor. She would make a nice decoration for the party. Then we changed for our party later that night und logged off.

And at night we had our party again … the perfect start into the weekend!

Diary 2022 (95) July 10th/11th Two more relaxed days

Sunday, July 10th, I had a day with quite some time inworld and I was not in the mood for a simploring tour of for visiting a gallery. Instead I hopped from one sim to the other, I had a chat here and there, I talked a bit longer with Mercy (Steelyeye Blinker), I saw a nice dress and went getting it and I talked with our Kitty, who had just come free from a 4 day kidnapping. She had fun. Although I spent quite some time inworld, I did miss Mistress Jenny, who happened to be inworld when I wasn’t. Besides that she also talked with our Kitty, she saw Sakura (SakuraMatsumoto), who was at home. She gave her one of her noserings.
Mistress and I we saw each other at night. We played two rounds of skipee with Flo, slave Holly and slave Alessi while we caught up with our news. Mistress had fun teasing slave Holly and me. I won’t go into details though. Flo went to bed after the two rounds and Angelique joined us.
We went to Carnal Intentions with Angelique, slave Holly and slave Alessi. Mistress kept teasing slave Holly and me. I had a nice chat with Angelique, who told me that she had joined a group of maids and hopes to have fun with them. She knows many of the group members from former times. Time went by with chatting amoung us and we returned home at around midnight.

July 10th: Mistress Jenny, Diomita and Angelique at Carnal Intentions with slave Holly and slave Alessi

Mistress and I retreated to our skybox and Mistress outlined her plans for the next days to me. I won’t spoil anything though. As Sakura came inworld again we went seeing her and Mistress added me to her nosering, then she welded it on. And I installed our script to her RR stuff so that Jenny and I have access to her RR gear.

And that’s it about Sunday, July 10th.

Monday, July 11th, I went in-world in the later morning to visit a gallery and for a simploring tour. To my surprise Mistress Jenny was online, yet she was on her way out. Hence we just hugged, then she went offline. I visited the gallery and did my simploring tour, then I had to tend to my RL.
I returned in the afternoon to meet with Mistress. We caught up with our news and went to club Domme a Domme for about one hour. We watched what was going on, we chatted amoung us and Mistress succeeded not to leash me and not to exercise her power. She has her plans and she follows them quite strictly – also against her spontaneous desires.
Anyway we had a good time at the club and in the end Faye joined us there for a few minutes before Jenny and I had to leave.

We started Monday night with a skipee. slave Luci and I won it against Mistress Jenny and slave Holly. After the game we went to club DeLust, where we chatted and watched what was going on.

We moved on to Carnal intentions where Sakura (SakuraMatsumoto) joined us. I had prepared a treat for slave Holly .. she got a pill from me that will make her even more addicted to me. I’m curious how that will work out.
Other than that we had a relaxed night.

Art in Second Life 2022 (72) “Invisible Cities – Fighting Women” by Debora Kaz

Dido Haas invited me to the opening of the August exhibition at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery. today, August 1st at 12 PM (9 PM Central Europe Time). I will be busy with my SL family and hence can’t attend. The exhibition is titeled “Invisible Cities – Fighting Women”, the artist is Debora Kaz (deborakaz), who is new for me. The opening event starts with a contemporary ballet “Demotions” performed by and specially created for this exhibition by Milena Carbone (mylena1992).

I visited the exhibition on Friday, July 29th. The exhibition space with it’s mirroring floor is quite full this time. The exhibition consists of 14 pictures, 6 3D sculpture installations and 1 video screen. The whole exhibition is held in dark purple and violet tones. All the objects and semitranparent frames together with the light effects set by Adwehe provide an outstanding art experience.

Debora Kaz (deborakaz) wrote about her exhibition:
The fight against violence against women practiced by women is the theme of this exhibition. The predominance of the hot pink color in the installation represents this struggle, as well as hot pink is also the color indicating female empowerment i.e. the potency of women.
This installation also brings a mix of colors in a chaotic and disorganized way, to represent female emotions and unconscious conflicts.
Invisible cities are present in the composition of the works, giving them an imaginary physical space.
The structures and lines suggest a non-Cartesian timeline inserted in a space

‘Invisible Cities – Fighting Women’ wants to show the pain and difficulty of being a woman in a world where women historically were portrayed as objects of desire, exposed to consumption, which induced rivalry resulting in us women not having a real union to fight the violence that is directed at us..

That sounds complex and it is complex.

For me the colour purple/violet still stands for the women rights and equality movement in the outgoing 1970ies and in the 1980ies. I remember wearing a purple overall, real fashion at that time.
As I wrote above the exhibition is complex. The pictures are all made up of several layers, so that the spectator has to decide where to focus first. But looking at them for a while you recognize more and more details. Debora works with lines und geometric forms as well, thus generating urban spaces in some of her pictures. You can see the fight and struggle in many pictures. The 6 3D sculptures show one or two (fighting) women in a more red colour. The scuptures are surrounded by semi-transparent frames and pictures, thus providing unique views together with the pictures at the walls. I am a fan of this kind of art, as every picture you take is unique as well depending on light, view angle and distance.

On the video screen a youtube video is showcased. It is named “fighting women”, yet for me it shows 2 dancing women with a stylised city in the background. Also have a look at the text that is shown at one of the walls next to the pictures. Debora wrote a text addressed to all women that fits to the exhibition and gives you some background information for the exhibition.

Debora Kaz (deborakaz) is a digital artist from Brazil (if I figured it our corectly). She’s in Second Life since February 2012 and discovered its opportunities for creativity. She writes in the accompanying notecard: “Exactly 9 years ago I became interested in the language of wireframe, the lines, the structures and the voids they provide. When making wireframe images it is as if you can make the invisible visible. It’s as if I could reveal something that hides inside our structures, our feelings, emotions and maybe reflects on some subjects.” Just a few months ago she began to exhibit her artwork.
Debora has a flickr page, a facebook account and a youtube channel.

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 “Invisible Cities – Fighting Women” by Debora Kaz. Thank you Debora for your art, and thanks also to Adwehe for the light effects and to David Silence for creating the exhibition poster for “Invisible Cities – Fighting Women”.
“Invisible Cities – Fighting Women” is the August exhibition at  Nitroglobus Roof Gallery and hence shall be open until end of August 2022.

Art in Secon Life 2022 (71) Harbor Galaxy´s “looking back retrospective” at DixMix Gallery Lounge

Violet Boa reminded me of an ongoing exhibition at DixMix Gallery Longue – Harbor Galaxy´s “looking back retrospective“. Actually Habor Galaxy’s retropective is shown in 4 thematic exhibtions “Graphic, Painting, Surreal and Sensual”. On Saturday, July 23rd, the second part with the theme “Painting” has been opened.

I came across Harbor Galaxy twice so far. I visited “Figure and Form” by Harbor Galaxy” at the DixMix Gallery in February 2021 (read here) and I saw her exhibition “The privilege af aging” The Carbone Gallery (read here)

The current retrospective exhibition at DixMix Gallery Lounge compromises 14 paintings of Harbor Galaxy. I recommend that you hover with your mouse over the pictures to see the titles. Violet sent me a description by Habor Galaxy for the painting “There is a crack in everything. That´s how the lights gets in”:
This piece came about as I was taking pictures of various characters on my platform. I loved with the way the light fell on this mature characters’ face and body. The style of the piece was part of a process I had begun playing around with for some time using a blurring tool to push pixels around to hopefully focusing the viewer on the light..and it was during this process that her hand was revealed. The title of the piece just fell into place once her hand touched the light.

Harbor plays with a lot with light and with blurring in her paintings. Her theme are females and the female body (at least in the current exhibition). Her pictures always carry a lot of emotions too. A good example the the painting “Confined”

Habor is not fixed on one theme or colour. The broad variety of her artwork can also be seen in this one theme “Paintings” as they range from very colourful and detailed to a series of three blue and blurry paintings.

Harbor Galaxy is in Second Life since December 2008. She has a flickr page where I found a short description about her: “Just a pixel dolly exploring my creative side in SL. I don’t generally talk too much about my process primarily because it frequently seems kind of like a happy accident but in my work, I attempt to merge photography and digital painting. I take pictures using screen shots and then edit and manipulate the images in GIMP; frequently using distortion and color to invoke an emotional response from viewer.

For more information about Harbor Galaxy read Violet Boa’s interview with her, that was published March 17th, 2021 on virtuality blog.

The exhibition Harbor Galaxy´s “looking back retrospective” – “Paintings” will stay until August 12th before the 3rd part is shown.
Thank you Dixmix for providing and curating the Dixmix Gallery Lounge. And thank you Violet Boa, who does the PR work for the Dixmix Gallery Lounge and who is always helpful for me to gather information.
Thank you for your art, Harbor, I enjoyed my visit.

Art in Second Life 2022 (70) “Dinosaurs and coconuts” by Cica Ghost

Friday, July 29th, Cica Ghost opened another new installation named “Dinosaurs and coconuts“. The thought Cica provides with the landmark description is a quote from Dalai Lama: “Once a year, go somewhere you have never been before.”

 

As usual with Cica’s installation you shall use shared environment. You will get reminded upon landing. I also set advanced lighting and activated shadows from sun/moon and projectors. The environment settings are part of Cica’s art. For “Dinosaurs and coconuts” she selected a green-brown-yellow hazy environment and a light blue sky. The ground is either sand, grass or made of tree trunks. I recommend to also turn ambient sound on.

After her last installation “Somewhere” (read here) Cica returned to creating a happy place again. With that title I had assumed it. What’s it about? Yes, it is about dinosaurs and coconuts. The dinosaurs live and a group of smaller islands, that are connected by bridges. You can walk over these bridges easily. There are different buildings, all in the typical Cica style. Most are buildings are on poles so that they are high enough and no coconut falls on them, others are on wheels.

If you have visited one of Cica’s installations before you know that she offers places to sit, places to dance (there’s a sign “dance”) and places to have fun. Simply hoover with your mouse over objects to find this fun. I sat down on a seesaw, I danced and I tried out several seats.

What is different this time is that Cica didn’t have to make her animals outstanding tall, dinosaurs were quite tall and impressive beings. This time the human avatar is comparably small because the animal were that tall! They ate plants and Cica’s dinosaurs are peaceful beings. They follow you with their yes, but they stay were they are.

Then there is the noise of falling coconuts. The cocnut trees are tall and the falling coconuts are quite big. You wouldn’t want them falling on your head – jesus. And luckily the cocnuts vanish after falling on the ground, otherwise the island would be filled with coconuts very quickly. I looked out for Cica’s cat as she often hides one (for me?). Cica was present during my visit and she told me that I don’t have to search a cat as she didn’t rezz one this time.

This time Cica also placed a shop on her sim again where you can buy all the different dinosaurs if you want one for your garden in Second Life. It is fun to explore Cica’s “Dinosaurs and coconuts“, to see the different dinosaurs, to watch them, to walk around them. It is fun to dance or sit and to let your thoughts wander. It is fun to be in another world, at a place that is new, particular, and also some two hundred something million of years gone – “Once a year, go somewhere you have never been before.”

Thank you for another great installation, Cica, it made me smile once again and distracted me. I was somewhere else. As always, don’t wait to long with your visit to “Dinosaurs and coconuts“, you never know how long it may stay – it is a temporary world.
