THE SUNS of the HYPERVERSE

The avatar adventures of Sunbeam Magic includes many Suns.  Before I came and immersed myself in OpenSim I had many (many) alts.  At one time in Second Life I think I counted a total of 25 *LOL*… many were used for Roleplay as for a couple years AAcme and I were totally into RP.  Others were made to ‘re-create’ ourselves as many times we tried to “quit” the world and vowed never to come back.  It seemed to be taking over our real life time and emotions ran high at times over silly incidents. After over a decade since we first discovered virtual worlds now I can not even remember the whys or what for regarding the high emotions!

When we first went to an OpenSim grid (3rdRock and InWorldz) we made new avatars for new names and jumped in with both feet, socializing, becoming an Events Manager, building, creating, opening shops, managing others’ regions, Mentoring, joining Admin teams… you name it we tried it! Then we found other grids as they popped up and before HG you had to join them to see them.  So as the years went on I became a member of over a dozen grids.  Some (most) still have my original avatar on file, even if I have not logged into that particular grid in over a year.  Amazing! I did decide after roaming away from the closed grids to always be ‘Sunbeam Magic’.  IT goes back to my grass roots, as when I first joined Second Life, the legacy grid, I started as ‘Sunbeam’ Jewell… changed to Magic as surname because I feel these worlds are MAGICAL!

Below are a few of the profile shots from the many grids I am a member of:

I’m sure I have other Sun’s out there… SimValley, Discovery, Zetaworlds, The Adult Grid, Virtual Highway ring a bell! But forgot the passwords and couldn’t get my Profile pic to show you my dear friends.  So I’m stuck with only 13 images to preserve and record for future prosperity.  Plus I did not include any of my still alive and breathing avatars in Second Life (about 3 or 4 or them I believe).  Anyways, thanks for joining me in my trip down Avatar Lane!

As Always, Step in Sunshine, Be Happy and enjoy your lifes!

“Crazy as a Loon’

My title reflects my insane laughter as I merrily skip from grid to grid making new friends and new promises! Another ‘slang’  phrase that comes to mind is ‘biting off more than I can chew’  or perhaps I just drink too much coffee…LOL

The month of May found Sun pretending she was a Movie Star when asked to be in Nara Malone and Fuchsia Nightfire’s 2nd tutorial video on “NPC” fun  , Sun also visited about two dozen grids, went on three HG tours, complied and published the 3rd Issue of VISIONZ magazine (38 pages woot), went to a couple of Metropolis’s 7th Birthday parties, partied at the Tangle grid’s Fashion Expo exhibit, worked on her Enchanted Village (Hidden Glenn region) on Tangle, started progress on a castle for her Fairytopia sim at SimValley grid, visited Kamis Haven  – The River Lands  – Cedar Point and Shoalwaters Bay  regions at her home grid of GCG, hooked up with her dear friends Lion and Kat Ewry and Daisy Coronet and DJTommy Seetan, had Balpien Hammerer visit AAcme City and ride the chopper and then declare it “an amazing build, had fun!” ,  added a couple new blogs to the Blogz “R” Us offices, and of course continued working on tweaking and creating AAcme City with her soul mate AAcme Fall.  Judy Muircastle specially scripted a couple of her awesome vehicles (The Chopper and the Bonnie and Clyde car) so that now anyone visiting AAcme City can rezz a ride and drive all around the 3×3 var (downtown area, country, beach, forest and mountains)  and we finished connecting our paved roads land level to the two story roads hovering above the city.  Phew!

Of course I took lots and lots of pictures which I will display here as slide show (40 images wow and I could added more ☻) instead of my typical laundry list of images 🙂

June looks to be just as busy for Sun. She is so excited to hold the first official VISIONZ magazine meeting now that we have official staff members! And on June 13th, Saturday, Sun is the ‘Guest Tour Guide’ for Metaverse Tours… hope you will join us.  I’ve chosen 3 regions on 3 different grids  hoping everyone will enjoy.  So stay tuned as Sun continues to be Crazy as Loon ha ha ha ha (insane laughter).

As always my valued friends and soon to be friends, Step in Sunshine, enjoying your time!

April Fools’

Certain numbers were considered sacred, holy, or magical by the ancient Egyptians, particularly 2, 3, 4, 7, and their multiples and sums .  Can you name the only number that has the same number of characters as its value in the English language?  Here’s a hint: what month of the year hosts EARTH DAY?

The beginning of my favorite month! Why you ask? Well……

My parents were married on April Fool’s Day (1944) and me and Dude were married on April 4th (44 years yeah, wow) and then there is Easter which usually falls into the month of April but occasionally its been known to sneak in early at the end of March.  Such as the dates below:

22nd March 1818 – 30th March 1902 – 31st March 2002 – 31st March 2013  31st March 2024                 4-5-2015  Easter is coming…Happy Easter ♥ have a crackin’ Easter Everyone!

Moving on through my love of April, both my rl chidlren were born in the month of April (son born April 22nd , daughter born April 25th) and one of my most passionate causes EARTH DAY global observance April 22nd.

So you can understand why April is packed full of fun and celebrations for me.

Enjoy your own April ! and don’t forget April Showers bring May flowers!

Swimming through Life

While growing up in the North America States of Florida and California, my favorite thing to do was swim. It’s  my very first and forever love of life.  my Daddy taught me to how to swim and dive.   Along with hundreds of other Navy bratz, as we were called, I did benefit from  a few swim lessons offered on the Navy base. My Dad was a lifer. A Pearl Harbor survivor, but not from the nightmares and secrets he harbored,   I’ve always thought of it like a Choctaw NdN sacred spirit running through our ancient blood. Surviving and Swimming, its what we best instinctively, those skills are surely are Salvation. With Summer Solstice passed its time to swim in the cool rivers, lakes, and oceans and soak up warm to get us through the upcoming Winter.  The waterways are like the veins of our Earth snaking around the globe down to the tiniest trickle. Summer, a time to enjoy nature and the remnants Spring left us as colorful blooms bursting to mature.  For as long as I can remember the Sun and the Heart have always been like my tokens, icons of my soul.  I’ve been thinking a lot lately about swimming, and internal symbols of happiness since finish reading The Hunger Games. I saw so many layers in the storyline, reminding me of the metaverse.  Reminding me of the stories my NdN grandmother use to tell us during our visits together. Grandmothers and Family, now that’s another story! Enjoy the Summer.
