Love how she has a matching fish with her! Wonderful Chinese theme in her fins.

RL photo reminds me of a place in SL. I sent here as a test, because the photographer on Flickr disabled downloads… I was curious if he still allowed blogs. Since he/she does, I wonder if they are aware? Either way, lovely pic. I would share on my other site http://theimagemuse.com but do not want to bring too much attention to it in case I have to delete the photo later. I don’t spend to much time on photos I’m not allowed to share. So… I’ll leave it for now, because I love it!

How far would you go to stand with your fellow man, for the greater good? My SL friend Cotton steered me to this wonderful collection of musicians on literally every corner of the planet, singing together one song, in tune and in time. Each part is added by the artists as the song itself travels around the world. It’s a beautiful rendition of Ben E King’s classic oldie “Stand By Me”. African choirs sing. Russian Cellist Dimitri Dolganov plays in Russia. There are guitarists in Caracas and bongos in the Congo….Stefano Tomaselli jazzes it up on Sax in Pisa, Italy. Roger Ridley’s taking it on the street in Santa Monica. Grandpa Elliot (blind and toothless) sings from the French Quarter (There’s a washboard too!) Clarence Bekker belts it out with vocals in the Netherlands. The Twin Eagle Drum group in New Mexico keeps rhythm. Francois Viguie’ plays the tambourine in Toulouse, France. Cesar Pope joins in with what looks like a Ukulele in Rio de Janeiro.
All of these artists are “Playing for Change”….in a song played and recorded around the world.
The video is an independent release, and comes from the documentary “Playing for Change: Peace through Music”

So, I head over to a concert in an art gallery with a show by an artist I had never heard of just to hear my favorite musician Louis Volare….
and there at the top, as I listen to music, I am drawn…I mean sucked into the absolute hypnotic mystery of this one photograph. He’s called the Haserot Angel….and he sits at a cemetery somewhere in Ohio.
The photographer, whom I only know as Eidolon Dreamscape in Second LIfe and Bittermuppet on Flickr has captured him, this mysterious crying angel in such a way that I myself am drawn to tears. Now I do not cry. I very rarely cry. But this picture (not the one here, but the one in Second LIfe…very similar to this but with the wings showing)…it actually made me feel for this ….statue!
Second life, real life, whatever. My real body was crying real tears and still is. Call it synchronicity or coincidence. It’s an incredible thing.
I am humbled by it…..drawn to my knees.
Good job, Eidolon!

Wow it’s so awesome!
The ship currently sits by the outdoor theater in SL New England…but won’t be there long!
Lora Chadbourne, a Mayflower descendant who painstakingly recreated the ship in second life, gave a wonderful talk in world. The whole intervew is available, as are free hats and moccasins for all! (I will definitely wear my moccasins next time I go drumming in the forest!)
The SLNE blog has the interview transcribed as well as more pics.
You can actually get on the boat and look around. It is truly incredible …the feeling, to imagine how the passengers might have felt on that scary and cramped voyage, full of hope, probably fear, and surviving the ills of storm and disease. Makes me very thankful our ancestors made the trip!
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
