Second life may well be a world of pixels, but over the 12 years that I have been an… ‘inhabitant’, it’s brought so much to me and my life. Two of the most important of those things, are the people it’s allowed me to meet, and the creative space that SL represents.
Gidgy Adagio is a woman who has always been a positive influence in both of those areas! I can’t remember exactly how many years it was ago that I first saw Gidgy’s artwork on Flickr, ( https://www.flickr.com/photos/99328879@N03/ ) but eventually I contacted her on Flickrmail, and it started a friendship which moved from there to Facebook, and then into SL itself.
After a while, our conversations got beyond the superficial, and we discovered that we both think and feel alike on many subjects. She’s a true, and good heart… a real gem of a woman and friend. Gidgy is also brimming with magical creativity. She would probably disagree with me, but that’s simply because she’s so down-to-earth… and I would simply speak louder! *chuckles*
She creates the most magical and wonderful landscapes, to the point where they truly have a ‘feel’ to them. I am a visual writer. I write best when submerged in the scene I am trying to capture… when I can see all events playing out in motion slow enough to capture with my typed words. So often I need to be in that right frame of mind, and there have been so many times when Gidgy’s SIMs have provided the perfect mixture of calm and magic for me to spend time sitting there, imagining… and writing.
Her created worlds are always the perfect place whenever I feel compelled to slip back into fairy form to create a picture. This was my plan the other day… to take a simple ‘faepicture’, but I ended up spending ages on Savor Serenity taking landscape shots. It was a joyous and peaceful time which left me smiling wide through the rest of my day.
I truly savour the serenity which good people like Gidgy bring to my life…. and urge you to go and visit the sensual treat that Savor Serenity is: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/River%20Hill/215/42/28 after all, all these images came from there!
Where dragons live.
Where peace and magic flourish
