Diary 2021 (38) March 23rd/24th Key Holding service reloaded

Tuesday, March 23rd, Mistress was not inworld during the day. I was inworld quite a lot, but stayed mostly idling at Heavy Bondage Club while I had other things to do in my RL. Then, in the later afternoon, I went visiting a sim, that I had explored before. It is the homesim of a clan, dedicated to roleplay a mafia organisation. Their business is human trafficking and forced prostitution. I had the landmark from a woman, who I met at Heavy Bondage Club several times and with who I had a short roleplay just between us. She, let’s call her ML had told me about the place where she and the clan is living.

Long story short as soon as I arrived, ML appeared behind me and poked a gun into my back. What could I do? She ordered a guard to take me and the two brought me to an old warehouse full with cages. Soon I found myself in one of the cages. ML covered the cage with a black cloth.
But at least this time ML released me after some time as she has not enough time inworld at the moment. Yet, she made it very clear that she will find me again.
I had fun roleplaying.

March 23rd: Diomita in trouble – never cross with the mafia

At night catching up with Mistress took a bit longer as I firstly had a (short) continuation of my blackmailing roleplay before she arrived and I had also some smaller things to report. Angelique has sent a sign of life, simply telling us that her RL is too busy for long online appearances. Of course I told her about my mafia roleplay in every detail … and then I also had an application for our former keyholding service (read here). We were just done catching up, when Flo came inworld, quite late. Hence we then had our obligatory game of skipee. It was a close game and hence entertaining. We then went to Psi’s realm.

The applicant for our keyholding service was ready to be locked and I summoned her to Psi’S realm. Mistress Jenny demanded that she add our script so that we both have access to her restraints. She, Elena (Elenaslv Serenity), did that immediately. After Flo had left for bed, Mistress took Elena and me to a public but silent place and we further dicussed the conditions. Mistress was way softer than I intended to be, but….she’s in control *winks*.

March 23rd: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at home, with Flo as Psi’s realm, with Elena at a silent place and at home, and at club Domme a Domme

After Mistress had set all conditions, we showed Elena our home shortly, then she went off. Mistress and I went chilling at club Domme a Domme for a couple of minutes before we called it a night ourselves.

Mistress Jenny and I met again Wednesday, March 24th, in the afternoon. We spent our time at home, catching up with our mutual news. Then we took Elena to Psi’s realm. Elena didn’t know Psi’s realm. Unfortunately there was really nothing going on that afternoon. But it will be a nice experience for Elena when the bondage bunnies show up. We left Elena leashed at the Wall of Shame and moved on to club Domme a Domme and stayed there until Mistress Jenny had to leave to tend to her RL.

March 24th: Mistress Jenny and Diomita at Psi’s realm with Elena (Elenaslv Serenity) and at club Domme a Domme

I had a quiet night and was alone when I came inworld again. Mistress Jenny was not inworld that night. I decided to visit a new gallery. That was fun and I enjoyed the visit a lot. After my return Flo came inworld and we had our game of skipee first. We spent the rest of the night at Psi’s, right next to Elena. It was really full there and a lot was going on. Elena got quite some entertainment – and Flo and I got entertainment as well. I chatted with Flo and Elena and time went by quickly. After Flo had left for bed, I retreated as well and wrote the report about my gallery visit.

And that’s it about these 2 days.

Art in Second Life 2021 (30) La Maison d’Aneli April 21

In April La Maison d’Aneli features two artists Xirana Oximoxi aka Nuria Vives and Violaine (Anadonne)

Violaine (anadonne) is in Second Life for 4 years now. Violaine is a RL photographer with many inspirations. She lists “human beings, films, shapes, trash, fashion, colours, black and white, minimalism, maximalism, commercials, graffiti and erotica – and many other things”. Her pictures at La Maison d’Aneli show this broad variety. The abstract pictures look like maps coloured in different tones of one colour. I other pictures you recognize parts of human bodies, other show people. Violaine’s pictures are displayed in groups of two or three pictures which belong together.
I saw Violaine (anadonne)’s art before at La Maisan d’Aneli, in November 2018 (read here) and in January 2020 (read here). The more I see of her art, the more familiar I get with her style and the more her pictures, in particluar those showing humans and part of humans, become intriguing.

Xirana Oximoxi aka Nuria Vives is a Catalan artist, children’s books writer and illustrator. She works with different mediums, oil, watercolor, acrylic, ink, charcoal and pastel. At La Maison d’Aneli she presents her exhibition “The secret of the Crystal Mountain”. The text and illustrations are from Nuria Vives, Aneli Abeyante and Nuria worked both an the setting into the 3D world of Second Life.

I would call “The secret of the Crystal Mountain” a walk-in children’s book. It tells the storry of a hippo family. You walk through several scenes (skyboxes) as you read and see the story. In the accompanying notecard the story is summarized in a few sentences along with direct landmarks to the scene. I recommend to just use the teleprots in the corner of each skybox (next scene).

“The secret of the Crystal Mountain” by Xirana Oximoxi and Aneli Abeyante (1)

Long ago, in a beautiful place in Africa, lived Isantim’s family. It was a family of hippos that spent all day inside the river to rest. It hadn’t rained for a long time and no one knew why. Isantim and his bravest children decided to organize an expedition to find out what was going on. They climbed the highest mountain in the country to talk to the clouds and ask them why it wasn’t raining.

They were about to reach the top when they realized they were walking on a layer of crystal and they saw that in the middle of the heart of the mountain, on a pedestal, was a golden metal cage. Inside there was a small bird. Little goblins that looked like fire surrounded him.

The hippos were going from surprise to surprise without understanding what was it all about. They saw a thin small cloud approaching. When he was closer, they took the opportunity to ask him thousands of questions. After discovering that the prisoner was the Rain Bird, the hippos set off to find an entry into the mountain.

The cave was like a labyrinth full of narrow tunnels. The hippos feared they would get lost in it and never being able to get out again. Luckily some bats that lived in the cave, after they heard that the hippos wanted to free the Bird, showed them the path that would lead them to the center of the mountain. But the bats warned them of the danger in which they will find themselves.

The hippos, who were not afraid, went on until they reached the entrance of the central gallery. Seeing them, the goblins, all at once, threw tongues of fire at them. The gallery looked like a flaming meteorite. Then, with the water they brought to cool off, the hippos all at once sprayed the goblins and left them well soaked and extinguished. Carefully, they took hold of the golden cage and came out of the mountain, guided by the bats.

“The secret of the Crystal Mountain” by Xirana Oximoxi and Aneli Abeyante (2)

After struggling a bit with the lock, they managed to open the door and to free the bird. He soared up in the sky making a cheerful whisper and a happy whistle. Soon they lost sight of him. After a while the hippos saw their cloud friend grow and swell like a cotton castle and then it started to rain.

It is not the first time that Xirana Oximoxi aka Nuria Vives is featured at La Maison d’Aneli. I saw her exhibtion “Women Artists XVI-XIX” there in February 2019 (see here) and her exhibtion “Lost Souls” in April 2020 (see here)
Xirana has her an own website and an own blog.

La Maison d’Aneli is owned by Aneli Abeyante. Through her gallery she brings together all forms of creativity in RL and SL and the featured artists come from around the globe. Aneli’s intention is to “put her gallery in the service of artists, so that the world can be better, exchanges and meetings probably contribute even though it seems to be particles.
Thank you for another great joined exhibtion, Aneli. As always I enjoyed my visit and writing about it. It always inspires me.

Art in Second Life (9) Planet by Cica Ghost

On Tuesday, January 26th, I got a message from Cica Ghost. She had just opened her newest installation “Planet“- I went there the next day and as always I enjoyed my visit to Cica’s installations

Planet is a strange and weired world of itself. Planet has pink, violet and blue ground textures, the sky has also a touch of violet. Flying saucers, UFO’s, fly above in the sky. Cica’s tip jar is also a UFO. I zoomed out for an overview. You can see another planet (the earth?) on the horizont. What I noticed first were the bizarre structures with holes, some looking like trunks, others like skulls.

Impressions of Planet by Cica Ghost (1) – Bird yes view, Cica’s TipJar

Looking around I noticed that some holes are filled with eyes that look around on what is going on, some of the structures move a bit, they can’t move a lot though as they are connected with the ground. There are objects with one, two and three eyes. Quite close to the landing is a colourful structure, kind of a large worm with one eye and 3 objects with 2 eyes, which reminded me a bit of polyps. On the ground are several fields with flower like objects. I first thought it were mushrooms, but now I think they look at bit like jellyfishes. From these fields and from nowhere particles rise and vanish, The particles look like little ufos, others like matchstickmen and others like viruses. So much to discover!

Impressions of Planet by Cica Ghost (2) – Eyes are watching you

The thought Cica provides with Planet is: “What if I’m a princess on another planet? And no one on this planet knows it?” (Candace Bushnell)
The princess lives in her own little world on Planet. In the center is a glass dome with a large rolling shutter gate. Inside lives the princess with her cow, the laundry is drying on a washing line, many flowers and gras provide an earth like environment. Also inside is the princess’ house, decorated with pictures of other Cica-creatures.

Impressions of Planet by Cica Ghost (3) – Princess’ glass dome

You can use some of the flying saucers to fly yourself. Just hoover with your mouse over them and if you can sit … et voila. The UFO flies you around and you can watch out trying to differentiate between rock and living creature – and enjoy. There’s also a rocket, mabye the rocket the princess onced arrived with. You can sit in the capsule and look out.

Impressions of Planet by Cica Ghost (4) – Flying with the UFO, the rocket and other creatures

What else? There’s a free space ship that Cica gifts to us. I tried it, it is funny to fly around with it. And you might wonder, where is the cat? It is in the glass dome, not that hard to find this time. *winks*

Impressions of Planet by Cica Ghost (5) – The Space ship gift, the cat and a few more impressions

Planet by Cica Ghost is as all of her installations first and foremost fun. Her funny creatures and her fine irony always make me smile. Although there are quite some strong pictures that refer to all of our lifes at the moment. The glass dome with it’s little perfect world inside, safe and sound. The virus like creatures waiting ouside, the big monster virus with one central eye which shows up at the coast, the particles that look like viruses, the immobility of Cica’s creatures, the empty holes, where once might have been eyes ….
Well you might (and should) have another and happier message – just smile looking at Cica’s creatures and creations.

P.S.: I saw other blog entries about Planet by Cica Ghost and noticed that for some reason I had not the environment setting that Cica had intended for her installation (I thought I had set it to region default but I had not). Her sky looks like in the poster, the first picture in this entry. Anyway, my pictures are even more particular now *winks*

Thank you Cica for another great installation.
Have fun! As always, we don’t know how long Planet by Cica Ghost might stay open.

Happy New Year 2021 and some stats and findings about this blog (2020 in review)

2020 has been a challenging year for all of us. The virus changed our real life and some of us had more time inworld unexpectedly, other had no time for Second Life at all anymore. What a year! With regard to this blog 2020 has been a very good year. I succeeded again to have an entry for every day (YAY). Blogging daily is a challenge as there’re days with not that much to report. In addtion, I’m not able to write every day due to other obligations and vacation (well, not in 2020 unfortunately, my last was in January 2020) or – like in this year- because of sad familiy affairs. Hence I always have some posts on stock and I try to pile up a few more, when I’m off for a few days.
In 2020 there were about 180 diary entries, 85 simploring reports and 85 posts about art in Second Life. Over all the blog grew by 392 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog to 2,240 posts.
As taking pictures is one of my passions in SL and storage space here is not free, I group my pictures to save space. When you click the pictures you can see them a bit larger. I also post the pictures on deviant art (Diomita Maurer at Deviant art). For my simploring tours I opened a flickr account where I publish pictures from these tours in full size. As there’s a picture limit of 1,000 for a free acount, you find there only the pictures of the last about 30 simploring tours. There you get the pictures in a higher resultion. In total I took more than 16,000 (!) pictures on Second Life in 2020.

In 2020 over 19,000 people visited our blog compared to 13,000 in 2019 – that’s more than 1,500 visitors per month! The number of clicks also reached a new record high: 68.000 (compared to 53,000 in 2018 and 45,000 in 2020).
Most clicks came from the US (17,000), Germany (17,000) and the UK (4,000). The statistics show that in total people from over 130 (!) countries visited our blog. Also the number of followers increased to over 220! Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (14.000), from Facebook (2,000), from deviantart (1,200) and from  scoop.it SL Destinations (1,100) (that’s from where I often pick my simploring destinations). Again not only the new blog entries attracted readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. The Top 6 Posts in 2020 were

1. The Victorian Corset Story – Part II –  754 clicks March (written by slave Flo) – ranked 4th in 2019
2. Kara Bound – 173 clicks – April 2014 – also ranked 2nd in 2019
3. Enjoying Bondage June 2016 – June 2016 – 154 clicks – ranked 1st in 2019
4. Kitty Maurer aka Santana Thibedeau – 148 clicks – April 2011
5. Maurer’s slave Gwendi aka. Gwendi Dash – 146 clicks – August 2019
6. Diary 2017 (125) July 31st / August 1st sissy maid – 142 clicks – August 2017

This blog contains a lot of memories for Mistress Jenny and me and for the people close to us in Second Life. It started as a little diary to keep up with all the things happening around us in Second Life and has grown with time. In the meanwhile I read back myself often to look up a date or to check if I came across a place already before. I introduced a new series in 2019, the “Backflash of the month”. 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 this 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.

In my diary entries you could follow how my submission to Mistress Jenny kept growing deeper and became natural for me, but you could also follow how much I enjoy to have her as my sub, as my property during my green lights. She’s still and will always be owned by me as well.

I still have fun writing and it’s my intention to continue daily, if I find the time for it. Considering how much of our free time in real life is spent in this virtual world it makes sense to keep the memories like you do in real life. The memories are real and they stay vivid and present this way.
That we attract so many readers who follow our ways in SL makes me happy and keeps me motivated.

Thanks again for reading and following my and our blog.
Have a great year 2021 in SL and in RL, and above all stay healthy!
Diomita Maurer

Merry Christmas 2020

We wish all friends and readers of our blog a merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your families in Real Life (please follow the restricting rules) and in Second Life (no social distancing, no masks), just celebrate! And stay healthy!


Diary 2020 (78) May 28th/29th Relaxed days

I met with Mistress Jenny Thursday, May28th, in the afternoon. We both had a strange friendship offer from someone, who just joined Second Life three weeks before. And we were curious to see the stranger. It turned out that it was someone who knew me from deviantArt and therefore seeked the contact. She was quite new to SL and hence Mistress Jenny and I gave her a few hints before we went to Heavy Bondage Club where Seu (Suomai) and slave Luci joined us and decorated us. We didn’t stay long though as Mistress and I both had to return to our RL.

Our night began at home where Flo was just dusting when we came on, Seu (Suomai) and Angelique joined (picture 1). Flo complained about the dust causing an allergy to her:
slave Flo shouts: tchiiiiiiiiii mmmmmhhhhhhhh
slave Flo curtsies
Mistress Jenny: hello Flo
slave Flo: good evening dear Mistress Jenny and Mistress Diomita
Diomita: hello slave Flo
slave Flo: tchiiii
Diomita: how are you slave Flo?
slave Flo: you would not like my answer Mistress
Diomita: awwww, that sounds not that good
slave Flo: the dust here is making me suffer by asthma, and show irritations on my skin
Mistress Jenny: it could be under your clothes Flo, you need to strip and take a shower
slave Flo: maybe I should have a time out from house work Mistress
Diomita: probably we should put slave Flo in a more protective outfit, Mistress
slave Flo didn’t take a shower. Instead she went into the bath tube in our bathroom (picture 2). Quite something very inappropriate for a slave in our household by the way and it will have to be punished appropriately later. Anyway, as she was already in the bathtube and slave Gwendi had arrived (Angelique went off to bed), I asked slave Gwendi to scrub and clean slave Flo (picture 3 und 4). Mistress Jenny, Seu and I supervised the cleaning (picture 5).
Mistress Jenny: Flo got a lot of dust under her clothes, so we will scrub her clean and put a protective layer over her body
slave Flo: yes , and my skin is irritated and asthma makes me hard to breath
Mistress Jenny: we can’t have health and safety inspecting us
slave Gwendi: So you’re like an old used vacuum cleaner, isn´t it????
slave Flo: hey – thats not a nice comparison, Sis
Mistress Jenny: kind of
slave Gwendi: I’m just trying to help with a diagnosis??
slave Flo: I do not need diagnosis – I’m a doc myself Sis – but someone who help me to cream my body
slave Gwendi: vacuum cleaners have filters and for slaves it is called hood, a filter change usually helps with vacuum cleaners
slave Flo pouts
After slave Flo was cleaned I put in her into two layers of a clean white latex catsuit that should protect her from dust. We met at our living room again and Ann came by shortly (picture 7). After Ann had left again, we went playing a round of skipee. Seu watched while Mistress and slave Flo played against slave Gwendi and me. It was a close, long game and we had fun and it took long, way over flotime – and time for all of us to retreat to bed. We had a nice night at home.

May 28th: A relaxed night at home in 7 pictures: Mistress Jenny, Diomita, Angelique, Ann, Seu (Suomai), slave Flo and slave Gwendi at home

Friday, May 29th, I was several times in world. I roamed, looked around and sorted my inventory. While roaming I came across a dirty window that coud be cleaned by simply sitting on it. I liked the animation and that I got a sponge attached by the script. Our dusting script and system isn’t supported by the creator anymore and there are in particular no duster gags available anymore. That’s why just slave Flo cleans the house (good slave girl) and others can’t help or step in for her. Just the sweeping is working for everybody. Long story short, I got the cleanable windows on the marketplace and tried them out at home. As it worked nicely I went to the inworld store of the creator and found even more cleaning tools and scripts and I got them all. Back home I replaced the sweeping and added zones for vaccuming, for dusting and for wiping. Now everybody can help keeping the house clean. We will see how this works out.

I also met shortly with Mistress Jenny, but she had to return to her RL soom again and we hadn’t yet fully caught up with our news.

Our Friday night was relaxed as expected. We, Mistress Jenny, slave Flo, slave Gwendi, slave Luci, slave Zia (Ziahon82), Seu (Suomai), Angelique and I met in our living room, chatted and caught up and agreed on a theme for the party. Well, Mistress Jenny agreed for us on “Black and/or White” as it caters for everyone. Hence everybody changed and we went to the dance floor, just Angelique went to bed before.

May 29th – gathering at the dance floor: slave Gwendi, slave Ziah (Ziahon82), Diomita, Seu (Suomai), slave Luci, slave Flo and Mistress Jenny

Our Friday night party was enjoyable once again. We heard that Starry gave up her prison, which did really surprise us all. But she told us that she has a few cells at another place now, so there’s still the possibility to park a slave at her place *winks*. Beside that, we just had fun as always.

May 29th – Friday night party: slave Luci, slave Flo, Mistress Jenny, Diomita, slave Gwendi, slave Zia (Ziahon82), slave BB (Ebony Massey), Baroness Capelo, Tyra Sciarri (upper row), Diable (Orspn Neutron), Della Randt, Starbright Wingtips, Hotaru Takedo, Sara (SaraRandall), Claire (maddh4tt3r), papafox57, Claven Albatros, Virgo Babii


Diomita’s flickr account

After publishing my post about “Dya’s scent of the Caribbean” (read here)  Dya OHare asked me to share my pictures on flickr. The picture on this blog can be downloaded but I am aware that the quality isn’t very high. I had to downsize the pictures in order to limit my costs for WordPress and not to pay even more than I do pay right now. For this reason you also see mostly 4 pictures grouped to one picture in this blog. For more than 8 years I publish the full size pictures on my deviant Art account here and over the time I uploaded more than 11,000 pictures on deviant Art.

Nonetheless I decided to open a flickr account as well for the pictures of “Dya’s scent of the Caribbean”, and yesterday I added my pictures of “Elephants by Cica Ghost” (read here). Today I added my pictures of “A Favela” as well.

Flickr is limited to 1,000 pictures. I intend to publish mainly the pictures of my simploring tours on flickr and when I reach 1,000 pictures the older pictures will be deleted. The more kinky pictures of the diary entries will be published on my dA account only.

Here is the link to my flickr account: https://www.flickr.com/photos/188414948@N07/

SL Destinations by Annie Brightstar is back! :-)

Today, Thursday April 23rd, I had a look again at Annie Brightstar (anniebrightstar)’s scoop.it SL Destinations. And…. good news! The website is not only available again but Annie also started to upload links to newly published blogposts about new and old places in Second Life again. I had talked with Annie after she closed her website and thanked her for all the great work she had done for the community. If our conversation contributed to her decision to continue, that makes me even more happy.

Annie’s scoop.it SL Destinations had been is my first source for finding new places for quite some years. I could can get a first impression of many places without going through a long list of blogs. Thank you so much for all of your work over these almost 7 years, Annie. Your SL Destinations will be missed badly. I look forward scrolling through the entries of scoop.it SL Destinations again.

Many Thanks!

Art in Second Life 2020 (19B) Michiel Bechir Galleries current exhibtions

At Michiel Bechir Galleries a new exhibtion was opened on Friday, April 10th. I went there on Saturday, April 11th. The exhibition features the work of Tresore Prada (tresore), Mélodie Heart (mariemadeleine38), Star (gossamerstar) on the 2nd floor and Michiel Bechir’s own art on the 1st floor. Unfortunately I didn’t find a notecard with more information about the artists, hence I have only some basic information.

Tresore Prada (tresore) is in SL since 2011. She writes about herself “I love SL because it allows me to explore, discover new parts of myself, be creative, connect and experience others. It enriches my life. I have found in photography and visual arts the perfect outlet for creativity.” At Michiel Bechir’s Galleries we see her pictures, that are related to peaceful fairy fantasy worlds. The floor of the room at the gallery is covered with grass and wildflowers, there’s a fountain and the opportunity to sit. This way you see the pictures in a fitting environment.

Tresore Prada (Tresore) at Michiel Bechir’s Galleries

Mélodie Heart (mariemadeleine38) is in SL since 2016. She has had several exhibtions also together with other artists in Second Life and her art work has messages – mostly realated to nature and evironmental issues: “This paper cut world will replace the world we live in once it will be worn out.” I haven’t seen this kind of art in Second Life yet but only in RL and I like it! The world map made up with pieces of paper, almost breaking apart dominates the room with her art. But look also at all the other paper cut work.

Mélodie Heart (mariemadeleine38) at Michiel Bechir’s Galleries

Star (gossamerstar) is Canadian and in Second Life since 2013. Star had a few exhibtions before. The art presented at Michiel Bechir Galleries fits a bit to the art of Mélodie Heart (mariemadeleine38), the floor of the room is also covered with green gras and there’s an Angel statue made of stone in the center of the room. The pictures itself are are also related to fantasy worlds yet a tiny bit less romantic (I wonder is there something like more or less romantic?)

Star (gossamerstar) at Michiel Bechir’s Galleries

Michiel Bechir is quite a while in Second Life already (since 2007). Michiel art deals also with pictures taken within Second Life. He says about himself:
I have started my long virtual journey as a photographer in Second Life in 2009. First my main motivation was to share the richness of creations of all those different sims, with all their aspects. I discovered the options offered by several photo tools, which helped me to improve the shots I captured. By editing them I try to add a personal touch and feeling.
Michiel’s pictures are impressive as the processing makes them more colourful and highlights the beauty or the original picture.
