Death of Gracie??

Sharing a thought… in my art talk yesterday, I briefly mentioned the Edu/non profit issue… how scary it is… and what will happen to SL…  I brought up the idea of losing Gracie.

Is that a possibility? What would happen?

Someone said, I(we) would mourn her(other avis) and move on?

So if this is the case, a possibility of losing Gracie, what does that mean? Is this, like a disease, watching the end in sight? and while  I should mourn, I should continue to live on and live every day to its fullest?

Of course we all die someday, somehow… but do you ever think of your Avatar dieing?

Recently people have mentioned moving our avatars to other grids… Will Gracie be the same? While she is me, of course, she is her own avatar. Her clothes, her skin, her hair, her shape, define her as much as her personality.

I am thinking about/working on the bigger issues her… again our online identities, our perception of who we are both online and in RL, how we project ourselves onto our avatars and in turn how they are projected back onto us…

So many ideas to think about.

Right now though, it’s raining outside…  and I can hear and feel it 🙂

  1. Yeah, I think alot of us have been thinking about that sort of thing. I’m pretty comfortable that Dale in Inworldz is the same as Dale in SL, as even Dale in IMVU. They can access different sets of stuff, but I see them as the same, probably because I identify so much with all of them (they are all “me). But for people who don’t think of it that way, I can see it could be kind of scary!
