Today most of my photographic work takes place in Second Life. If you look at my Flickr site at https://www.flickr.com/photos/tarotgrove you can see some of my work. If you look far enough back in the site you’ll find some of my real-life images also.
I’ve also branched out into making videos or machinima of Second Life (SL) in 2015. While a few of those videos are on Flickr here are of two of my efforts. The is a SL themed music video. https://adobe.ly/2oJvxqv
I still enjoy making still images. In 2014 something happened I didn’t expect. I fell in love and got married in Second Life. Today we still enjoy Second Life together.
Willow is also in the virtual worlds of Kitely and Inworldz. I was in Inworldz until they shut it down.
While Kitely is technically interesting and may be the future of virtual worlds it is a little too “geeky” for me. I spent a couple of decades working professionally with computer systems and I don’t want to spend my time trying to figure out how something technically works. I’m also not fond of the its every sim is its own world data setup that is only loaded when someone accesses it.
Inworldz was almost a clone of Second Life and I enjoyed playing around for a a few months.

In my opinion both Kitely and Inworldz are hindered by not having enough population. Since I’m in virtual worlds for social reasons that is a problem.
Since Sansar may eventually supplant Second Life; I know LL says it won’t but with the haphazard way they do thing who really knows. So, it may be a good idea to keep your options open if it doesn’t cost too much.
I’m also what some people call a “super-wheeler”. Since I earned a university degree and had a successful career as a professional staff member of an investigative organization. Then after I took early retirement and designed my own house and became an accomplished photographer. All while being in a wheelchair.
I started seriously cooking in February of 2017. All those years watching the food channel haven’t been wasted. On the left is my Asparagus and Arugula Pesto Pizza with Pink Lemon Ricotta. I also designed an accommodating kitchen for myself. You can find details about my adapted kitchen in the pages of this blog. I still spend three days a week cooking.
