When Real Life Interferes With Virtual Fun

Greetings from the solid world.  I have hardly been inworld at all recently.  When, I have been, it's been only long enough to pay virtual rent (with real money, of course).  That being the case, my partner and I decided it was time to give up our most expensive land.  This was land in UUtopia, Second Life, where we met and where we have had several properties in the last six years.  I am surprisingly nostalgic about giving up this property.  It's surprising because I am really not the sentimental type at all.  I've walked away from literally dozens of real homes in my lifetime and never felt the pangs of loss as I have over our UUtopia land.  I suppose it is because this was the place  that changed my real life for the better.  I met the love of my life there and I can feel nothing but happiness for that.  We may be back one day, assuming SL is still there when we have the time to actually make use of it again.  In the meantime, I still have my shop on Book Island.  N
