I was meeting some educator friends in Second Life today when I looked across the virtual landscape and saw this nice view of my old lighthouse in the historic neighborhood of Nova Albion.
Amazing to think I’ve owned the parcel for over 10 years (since 2004). So much has changed in both my life and technology over that time, yet this specific virtual place remains constant and very special to me.

It’s funny, I still have my land in Hawthorne and Olive after all these years. I’ve had the land in Hawthorne since 2003. We’re getting old, John!
I understand your virtual sentimentality completely. I have gone to old SL neighborhoods or revisited them through machinima and it is much like reminiscing in the physical world. Memories are in our minds.
