I started thinking about people from other countries tonight. My friend Franz had a piano and I started to play Beethoven on it. I really like to play the piano. Franz sat and listened dressed in, shall we say, a slightly informal attire. Anyway as I was playing I started thinking of all the people I meet from Europe. I used to think people from Germany were very good at engineering things but never realized how complicated the German culture is and how complicated people can be. As I played I realized that people in the US are really sort of simple and easy to figure out. We elect people for office who think they are in a bad cowboy movie and don't understand why the rest of the world gets upset with us. Well maybe now we put someone in who has more sense - maybe people will start liking people in the US more, at least I hope so.
I think that is why it is good to have friends all over the world, at least that is what I have learned. Well enough of that. (This picture to the right makes me look like a crazed vampire.)
It was very nice to be in a homey place and that is what this house feels like. I am not sure "homey" is a real word but I think it must be. Homey or homie? Hommy? no. Homey must be a word. Some languages have really good words that mean "a home like comfortable atmosphere" so maybe someone has a suggestion.
Franz and I were talking about being one year old tonight. SL is so surreal in some ways. I don't like to say anything is "surreal" because it is used so often by people who don't have a clue what surrealism is all about. But I do feel that life in SL is another level of reality or something. When I first started I would have dreams that I was rezzing to a new place or something like that. That may have been because I stayed up so late inworld. Anyway that's my blog tonight.
