All good things come to an end.

Things changes all the time, and certainly when you are active in the virtual world.
I started at the end of January, 2007, trying to find a way and trying to make money. Certainly in the early stages it was not so easy. I remember trying to find good places to camp while I was doing some other work. And at that time, camping a rato of 2 Linden$/minute, would not made me rich, but it was a start. I thought, having a couple of hundred L$ would give me some comfort, but I soon realized that comfort isn't for sale for a couple of lindens.
After a few months I got 1000 linden$ from a friend, and that was in fact the real start. Since then my financial troubles were over. It only could increase, which it did.;)
In March or April 2007, a Belgian Friend started with a new sim, and I was able to buy a piece of land. It was my island and I have lived there for one year, but last August, it came unfortunately to an end. The sim was sold, prizes were increasing, so I had to let it go.
On my search for another place, some of my friends made me suggestions, but finally I choose for Dream Beach. I could rent a penthouse on an island where no one else lives, beside my neighbors of course, but that were only 3 other levels in the same building.
Dream Beach on Isla de Bahia, is also the place of CYD Records. They manage some artists in this virtual life, and I am the photographer of the group. This means I had a connection on this island.
Pictures of mine are exhibited in the Gallery, together with the RL paintings of Syl Darcy, and after a while I could make my own little studio on that very same sim.
My penthouse was only used to log in, and read my messages, so I decided yesterday to stop the rent of the penthouse.
All good things come to an end, but this one hasn't finished yet. I will stay on the sim with my small studio and gallery, so in fact, there are no big changes....only that I don't have to pay any rent for that penthouse anymore.
This means another chapter in my short existence of Second Life®,, but not necessarily a bad one.;-)

Sometimes, it is what it is. I've had to end some things recently as well. We grow and we move on, some things work, others don't.

Now, on a selfish note, why haven't you emailed me?!!!
