Upcoming changes in this blog

A Second Life without Jenny is something I couldn’t imagine and what I never ever wanted to experience. When Jenny didn’t appear anymore I was very worried from the first day on and my worries grew. I first continued my daily routines in SL, I wrote diary, I visited galleries and places and cared for the family. When I got the information that Jenny had passed away, my world collapsed, the pain was (and still is) awful, telling our family in SL and our many friends was a hard task.
No surprise – some things in Second Life are like in RL. First you have to deal with organizing things – paying rent, getting the information out, changing the profile, creating a place to remember. I built a memorial at our homeplace, a place that I (and several others) visit several times every day ever since, a place where I pray, a place where I calm down. I know that with time it will be a place where I look back in thankfulness even with a smile. But I’m far from this point at the moment, although I am thankful for the time we had.

Of course I thought of leaving Second Life. But then Jenny and I were always embedded in a nice group of family and friends. And I enjoy being with them. I also don’t want to miss the art in Second Life and all the nice places to visit. Hence I will continue in this virtual world. I don’t know how, I don’t know where it will lead me, but I will stay.

And what will happen with the blog? My first thought was to close and finish the blog. My second thought was to close the blog and to start a new blog. I set up a new blog. It turned out to be more difficult than I thought and it would cause extra recurring costs. So after a while I dropped this idea.

I decided to keep the blog, to continue blogging. My journey together with Jenny is in this blog and keeping it and writing in it will also make me look at older entries and will make me smile in future.
But there will be changes:
1. The name of the blog with change to “Diomita Maurer’s Blog” (instead of “Diomita and Jenny’s blog”)
2. The subtitle changes from “Our world” to “The Maurer family in Second Life” (that includes Jenny always and forever)
3. I will change the site icon picture

Icon of Diomita Maurer’s Blog – The Maurer family in Second Life

Furthermore I might stop blogging every day. I will keep writing a diary, but it might be a bit more about the family than about my personal experiences, honestly at least right now I don’t know yet. I intend to continue writing about art and places, when I am in the mood for it.

Jenny was the love of my Second Life, my world, my best friend. What keeps me going most of all is my belief that Jenny is watching me and us. A part of her will live on in me (in both worlds) until I follow her.
