Now that October is here, and the autumnal equinox has passed, we are officially in fall. The mornings are crisp and cool, afternoons are deliciously sunny and pleasantly cool. You can feel Mother Nature preparing for her long winter’s nap. The days shorten, plants and trees drop their leaves, and wood smoke from fireplaces curls through your nostrils and makes you think of toasted marshmallows and hot cocoa.
The early darkness enables one to curl up in a recliner with a good book, a blanket, and a glass of wine without a twinge of guilt. Fall and spring are transitional seasons, one bringing the earth into it’s winter hibernation; the other heralds the stirring of new life. renewal and reawakening as the earth yawns and stretches and wakes up.
For now, we anticipate fun fall activities, time with family and friends at the upcoming holidays, and our own transition into a slower pace as we move our activities indoors for the next few months.
Wandering into Second Life is a marvelous way to spend those longer fall evenings. There are many activities that still happen at **STARS** and at Star Journey, our sister sim adjacent to the club. We encourage you to come in a join us for our fall line up of wonderful live singers. While you’re here, please take the time to explore Star Journey.
On Star Journey island you can solve a problem, take a few moments of self reflection, or just come and explore this peaceful environment. You’ll meet others from around the world with interests in self-exploration. Many of the Star Journey team can be found online to help visitors. You might even stick around for a free workshop and the opportunity to meet author Richard Geer (Starman Heron in SL).
There are also artists who display their amazing creations in the Star Journey art gallery. Star Journey proudly supports the creativity of artists in Second Life. Its series of Gateway Galleries reflects the 12 underlying themes that are part of the Star Journey model. Artwork is selected for creativity and quality as well as fitting with these themes, which tell about a timeless cycle of growth and development.
