We have all been tempted, at least one time, to get rid of our current avatar and to create a new one, have a fresh start in our SecondLife … it is so easy, so tempting sometimes. I have lost many friends like this, they simply vanished from my world. A few times I have been able to find them again: see Family Reunited and Becky the Aussie … it is actually very rare and it can happen only with true friends.
When I met Charleen, I knew already who she was: an alt of Caroline from Second Life Adventures blog. Caroline, through Charleen, is trying to revive her early days in Second Life, to check how arriving in our world can be as a newbie. It is very refreshing, and I encourage you to read the first posts. The story, in my opinion, is very promising:
I actually had the opportunity to meet her in flesh, well, in pixels. She shares a passion with Caroline: sailing. I know nothing about how to sail, but I always enjoy sailing with some experimented people. It feels safe and exciting crossing the oceans, feeling the salty wind on my face and the warm caress of the sun.
We did not sail for a very long time, we just chatted a little and had a lot of fun together and we moored at the sailing club that I visited with her. Maybe I should buy a boat one day … well it is very expensive but I am considering it.
