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.

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.

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!
Diomita

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.

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.

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?)

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.

Art in Second Life 2020 (15) Wildflowers of The Prairie

Thursday, April 2nd, I went to “Hannington Endowment for the Arts at Xeltentat Enterprises” (HEA) to have a look what’s new. Some hives were still work in progress, but one new exhibition had just opened – Wildflowers of The Prairie by Thunda Masala.

You can grab a notecard with information about the artist and about the project before you step down into the “The Queen Bee Gallery” downstairs.

Impressions of “Wildflowers of The Pairie” by Thunda Masala (1)

Thunda Masala is a freelance photographer who lives in Iowa. He is also a molecular biologist. Thunda is drawn to the images of countryside because of the beauty and simplicity of  nature, landscape and livestock. Open spaces, dusty meandering roads, vast sky and gently rolling land of Iowa provide ample opportunity and satisfaction of capturing nature in its varied seasonal moods. Thunda also runs a blog about Second Life.

Thunda’s mission is to help preserving the praire. “More than 98% of the original prairie are lost to agriculture and industrial development. As such, this constitutes the largest devastation of any ecosystem on our planet. There are numerous efforts, both private and government-led , that intend to restore prairie- the land and its flora and fauna. However, these are minuscule efforts compared to what we have lost.
Wildflowers probably constitute the most obvious components of the prairie. Through these photographs of wildflowers, I hope to show what beauty they bring to the land and why we should try our best to preserve the gift of nature to protect the existing prairie and hopefully augment it.

Impressions of “Wildflowers of The Pairie” by Thunda Masala (2)

The exhibition at HEA shows a selection of great pictures of flowers and insects, close up pictures as well a whole meadows. The pictures really give a good impression of the beauty that comes with natures.
The pictures are arranged in a circle, the walls show a meadow, the ceiling is blue, the floor is earth-coloured and covered with different grasses, two deers stand hiding in higher grass and watch, some butterflies liven up the scene. In the center is a video screen where you can watch a video slideshow with more pictures from Thunda. At least I had to fumble a bit to get it running in Second Life as the meadow in front made clicking to agree to data protection rules almost impossible. But I managed it and view the video inworld. Alternatively you can watch it here or use the direct link provided below.

 

Thunda’s pictures are really impressive. I like the way they are presented in a room that provides a little feel of Pairie. What is certainly missing is the smell and the sound of insects. I enjoyed my short visit and it was educational in addition.
Thank you Thunda!

Hannington Endowment for the Arts at Xeltentat Enterprises – Despite its name, ‘Xeltentat Enterprises’ is not a commercial sim in any way. It is a peaceful and private area for contemplation and relaxation, and is proud to host artists at The Hive!”
It is owned by Hannington Xeltentat. “Hannington Endowment for the Arts at Xeltentat Enterprises” – or short HEA, was built by Tansee, who also runs the Gallery. Thank you Hannington for providing the space and thank you Tansee for enabling the exhibition “Wildflowers of The Prairie”

“Wildflowers of The Prairie” shall be opened until April 30th

Happy New Year 2020 and some stats and findings about this blog (2019 in review)


In 2019 I succeeded again to have an entry for every day. 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. 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 2019 there were about 200 diary entries and 130 simploring reports. Over all the blog grew by 372 new posts bringing the total archive of this blog to 1,850 posts.
As taking pictures is one of my passions in SL and storage space is not free, I also changed the way I publish my pictures and grouped them 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). There you get the pictures in a higher resultion. In total I took more than 11,000 (!) pictures on Second Life in 2019.

In 2019 more than 13,000 people visited our blog compared to 10,000 in 2018 – more than 1,000 visitors per month! Just the number of clicks declined the first time since this blog exists from 53,000 in 2018 to 44,000 in 2019. In 2018 we had a few days with thousands of clicks (by only one person, I assume) resulting in an average of 5.3 clicks per visit. In 2019 each visitor made “only” 3.3 clicks.
The average daily clicks were quite stable in 2019 with 120 clicks a day. Most clicks came from the US (9,500), Germany (9,000) and the UK (2,900). The statistics show that in total people from over 130 (!) countries visited our blog. Also the number of followers increased to over 180! Many thanks to all friends, readers and followers.
Most found our blog coming from search engines (6,900), from Facebook (2,200), from scoop.it SL Destinations (1,250) (that’s from where I often pick my simploring destinations) and deviantart.com (1,500). Again not only the new blog entries attract readers, there’re also some “evergreens”. The Top 5 Posts in 2019 were

1. Enjoying Bondage June 2016 – June 2016 – 287 clicks – ranked 1st in 2018
2. Kara Bound – 280 clicks – April 2014 – also ranked 2nd in 2018
3. Simploring 2019 (121) A NYC Christmas – December 2019 – 217 clicks
4. The Victorian Corest Story – Part II – 178 clicks – March 2017 (written by slave Flo) – ranked 3rd in 2018
5. Simploring 2019 (49) HoPe – 147 clicks – April 2019

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.

The diary entries became also more personal and 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 2020 in SL and in RL, stay healthy!

Diary 2019 (199) December 26th/27th – Finally a green light again

Thursday, December 26th, Mistress and I met with slave Gwendi and Angelique in the afternoon and enjoyed some time together at Heavy Bondage Club. We chatted and exchanged about our Christmas activities. And we took Angelique to Extra Ordinairy, a shop for clothes,  where we got her Christmas presents. I went visting a gallery after Mistress had left to tend to her RL again. Our night was Chistmas-ish relaxed. Mistress and I were at Psi’s realm with Ann, slave Gwendi and slave Flo and later we went to Mesmerize Dungeon.

That night we had a particular fun. Mistress was wearing the tinkler, which is a bladder simulation for Second Life. In short it forces you to go peeing every once in a while. There’re addons that allow others to make you drink and even to force you peeing (which is embarrassing!). Angelique wears her timkler for several years now and Mistress made me wearing it permanently a few months ago. So now and in preparing of a green light that I was about to get the next day, Mistress wore a tinkler as well and she gave Angelique control over her and my tinkler. And Angelique had fun teasing Mistress and me. And that’s it about Wednesday.

Friday, December 27th, I met Mistress at club Domme a Domme in the afternoon. For me it was a particular date as I got permission for a green light from Mistress starting that day. I didn’t hesitate to exchange her collar with her slave collar and put her in a bind pose. Kitty was inworld shortly and joined us and we could exchange our Happy belated Christmas wishes personally. When Kitty had left, I leashed Mistress with her new nose ring and enjoyed just looking at her.

And at night we had our regular Friday night party – with a funny theme “Come as you are, wear something comfy to shake off the kilos gained over Christmas” – and so we did! Mistress Jenny and I had fun with Angelique, Mistress and she dressed alike and we had some chat and banter playing each others role – funny!

Merry Christmas 2019

We wish all friends and readers of our blog a merry Christmas. Enjoy time with your families in Real Life and in Second Life, just celebrate!

 

 

And for all, who haven’t seen yet the yearly christmas installation from Calas Galadhon “A Calas Christmas” here’s an official video of it. It is still amazing what “our” Second Life has to offer. Enjoy!

 

Diary 2019 (194) December 14th/15th Relaxed Weekend

I went on a longer simploring tour Saturday, December 14th, and visited “Let it Snow! A Winter Wonderland” (read also yesterday’s post). I had fun exploring it, really a Winter Wonderland! I was about to finish my visit when Kitty came online. What a surprise. I summoned her to me and we danced in this romantic environment, we caught up just a bit. Mistress Jenny, who meets Kitty more often than I do, keeps filling me in about Kitty’s news.

December 14th: Diomita and Kitty dancing at “Let it Snow!”

At night I first spent some time at club Domme a Domme where Ann found and joined me. I took control and tied her up in her doll suit. I noticed slave Flo coming online and called her. She had started a game of skipee (alone, so that she wins *winks*). I went home with Ann and soon after slave Gwendi and Mistress came inworld. slave Gwendi had been sick a few days and we were happy having her back. After Flo had won her game (surprise, surprise), we went to Mesmerize Dungeon for about an hour. Mistress and I caught up with our mutual news, we talked about the upcoming holidays, we teased the slaves and had fun. And slave Flo and slave Gwendi had fun teasing Ann as their future sister slave.

Back home we played a round of greedy, then it was time for Mistress Jenny and slave Flo to leave. I tucked Mistress Jenny in and went to bed early myself.

I had quite some time inworld on Sunday, December 15th. I went visiting Lairig Leacach  (see Simploring 2019 (126) Lairig Leacach) first. It is Serene Footman’s particular holiday sim and outstanding as all of his work. Once again, Kitty came inworld when I was about to leave, but this time I really had to leave.

 

Lairig Leacach

To my surprise Kitty was online when I returned in the afternoon. Now she was about to leave but I could convince her to come home and to meet me and slave Gwendi. I took a fwe pictures of us 🙂

December 15th: Diomita with slave Gwendi and Kitty

After Kitty had left I took slave Gwendi with me to Heavy Bondage Club. slave Gwendi was more or less absent and I had some distractions of RL as well. Our former slave Dana called me and I summoned her to us. She’s was quite restricted and still searches her place in SL while causing trouble and having fun. We caught up a little but, then I had to leave for dinner.

December 15th: Diomita with slave Gwendi and Dana at Heavy Bondage Club

At night Mistress Jenny, slave Gwendi, slave Flo and I had 2 rounds of greedy first, then we went to club DeLust where we spent the night. slave Gwendi danced for us, slave Flo decorated us well and slave slut cecy showed up later and danced for us as well. We had a very relaxed night together with the slaves and it was crowned with tongetherness at our skybox after the slaves had left.
