(Title Quote by John Muir)
I returned to explore InWorldz further. It is a quiet and beautiful world. I find the best way to travel is to pull up the world map and aim my avatar at a square of green grass on some unknown island. Sometimes I don’t make it, the teleporter just won’t transport me over, once or twice I ended up with arms and legs spinning in the air above the ocean. However, it worked a treat the other evening and I landed on the beautiful Music Island owned by Julia Hathor. InWorldz is apparently not fussy about where you make your home so, for now anyway, I have made Music Island my wandering avatar’s home. I especially like the trees here, they are the work of soror Nishi and Julia Hathor. I did not find pine trees like the ones mentioned in John Muir’s quote above but it is intriguing to see these gorgeous trees growing from seeds first sewn in Second Life.
We all travel the milky way together, trees and men… trees are travellers, in the ordinary sense. They make journeys, not very extensive ones, it is true: but our own little comes and goes are only little more than tree-wavings – many of them not so much.
~John Muir, Scribner’s Monthly, November 1878
