A Second Life Can be a Good Thing
You may have heard me mention that I participate in a virtual world and have for over seven years now. My grid of choice is Second Life. I was tagged today in a Facebook memory. So, certainly a number of fond memories came rushing back.
For five of my seven SL years I was the curator of an amazing art gallery that was part of a palatial build by my SL brother, Kaya Angel. It was a wonderful time in my life and I’m sure I will never forget it or my brother.
I curated art from artists all over the world for placement in nine galleries and a grand exhibition hall. I recast the galleries and hall every month. Each exhibition started with me stripping the galleries to their bare white walls and building an atmosphere that was uniquely fitted to the artists’ work. Back when I was completely nuts about this, I’d turn over all of the galleries in one 36+ hour day. In my tenure, I worked with nearly 400 international artists and created nearly 600 unique gallery designs and won three Avi Choice Awards for my work.
I know that many have no idea that such worlds exist so I’m including a YouTube video that includes my life there. By all means watch the whole video if you have the time, but if not and you are just curious about what Kylie was up to “in world” then check out position 8:06 – 10:22 as that is the section that Kaya devoted to his middle sister and her life at Angel Manor. Thank you for this beautiful memory, Kaya.
Angel Manor is probably one of the most impressive builds in SL and now occupies nine sims. If you get a chance to go in world, be sure to check out Angel Manor and The Rose Theatre.

PS: I am still a part of Second Life, but live a more private life decorating my home and SL gardening.
