Few things suck more than finding your camera's memory card has suddenly lost all the photos you've been keeping on your camera, meaning (but never quite remembering) to transfer to safer climes.
Especially the one of Lola under the tree. Oh well, that's what the mind's eye is for.
Equally sad is the disappearance of the blue place, Scottius Polke's build The Docks on sim Originalia, along with installs by Cherry Manga, Callipygian Christensen, and Fuschia Nightfire. It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by, and it's only right in a way that some other art and artists get their turn. But oh, all those quiet evenings sitting here long before the build opened... it makes me quite blue.
The four builds officially closed yesterday, but just now, in the bright light of an alpine morning, I got a last photo or two of 'my' Blue place with someone who'd never seen the build before, Bitt Zane the new Events Manager from VMS: 'like something out of a tale', he said. The magic of The Docks is like that photo of Lola, a story saved, somewhere.
