Seems we missed a great time in history., I meet many interesting people in my day to day, many seniors, white hair, gray some stooped, some very active who have kept the same colour for years..so are still brunettes, blondeds, etc… there eyes light up and sparkle when they speak of “the days when”  Some of you, may or may not venture into the many virtual worlds that are now popping up all over, you can access them through FaceBook, either read about them or see pictures friends have posted.

Last night I had the opportunity of visiting a virtual club where a very good friend entertains on Wednesday evening with recorded music.  She grew up with the big band sounds, and she was playing them last night, what a turn out the club had. DJ Yume as she is called in the virtual world,  in the physical world is a modern-day diva, she works, lives and is active in her community, but volunteers some nights to entertain the virtual community.  For two hours she plays non stop tunes of the various eras she has programmed for the evening’s    entertainment. The guests all come dressed in costume to enjoy the party.

Who are these guests, having now spent many many years on virtual platforms, I know many are shut ins, or care givers, people who for one reason or another cannot get out to “kick up their heels”.. they are stay at home moms/dads, young men and woman who due to circumstances find themselves tied to the house, their contact and way of meeting others who share their need for social interaction.  People like DJ Yume, Tango and Peggy the owners of the club, they work very hard to provide the space, and the talent, so that others can enjoy.

Where in the physical world, they can feel invisible… on the virtual platform, they can be anyone they want to be.  Keep in mind that the number 1 rule in virtual worlds… is that kindness is key.. behind every avatar, there is a human being sitting at a computer.  We gather, we play, we chat and have fun… yes.. genuine heart-felt laughter.. there are no distractions, we talk across the miles… we are not invisible.

Lady in red, is Kyra Wyldfire and the builder of the new 50’s club you see in the first pictures.  She also owns and operates her own  blues club on the InworldZ platform (Rocking the Blues).  It sits on a beautiful sim, of bayou country   Kyra built the 50’s club on the Canadian grid, The Great Canadian Grid.    A very talented woman, a survivor, she manages her day-to-day life, her family and still makes time to come in to share with friends who love and care for her on the virtual platforms.

We are no invisible, we are real.

Spread your wings today… smile… show someone you care…
