In which there is dramatic foreshadowing


A strange melancholy has settled over the familiar swamp of ~silentsparrow~. I can't quite put my finger on it, but ever since the notice of the sale, I've sensed that change is in the air.

~silentsparrow~ is my home away from home. I've always felt at peace in the eternal dusk, alone but for the sounds of the birds and frogs and scrabbling of friendly rats. I spend most of my time in Second Life alone, partly because it's so damned tough to carry on a conversation when my daughter needs me. Perhaps other parents can understand -- it's nice to have a space where you are NOT a small child's larger, more intelligent mecha extension.

Violet used to be the Victorian color of mourning, but I shouldn't focus upon loss. Every change means new growth, right? All the same, I feel as if my avatar was truly born when I wandered down the bridge of ~silentsparrow~.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun.
-- W.H. Auden
