"We enter the mythical when we enter the realm of risk, and myth is the enchantment we generate in ourselves at such moments. More than a belief, it is a magical bond that tightens around us. It is a spell the soul casts on itself. 'This risk is fine indeed, and what we must somehow do with these things is enchant ourselves.' [Plato, Phaedon]"

Gracefully unboxing my new spotlights

Today I continue my slow, but yet continually ongoing, efforts to build a gallery-ish place in Second Life. The land I own is along the Route 3 road in Western Heterocera, which is (from the Wiki): "the second [oldest] mainland continent. It has the most advanced transportation systems of all mainland continents. This includes: a vast railway [...], the most complex road system and internal and external waterways. The Geographical features are unique and are composed of [...] plains, coasts, mountains, corals and hills. Heterocera is the most populated continent, with the smallest percent of abandoned land and also the [...] the smallest percent of places to rent."

Where I am

Where I am has more of a quiet countryside feeling, however. To get to the public transport one must go a ways North-East to Yucca or a great distance South-East to Calleta (the WARR--West Atoll Railroad--is no more), there is a pod tour that passes by up the road every so often, though.

Being on the second oldest continent (where 2005 lives on!), there are a few historical points of interest nearby, such as this lovely Japonesque bridge with delightful shiny green lanterns:

and this absolutely wonderful Post-Internet-Ottoman-Rococo pagoda/bus shelter thing:

Pagoda-thing

The building I have to house the gallery-ish place is a small one-up-one-down concrete box by Soy. It is awfully nice to have a balcony (I was previously underground), plus the shop window-y ground floor will work well with luck. Most of the buildings around me are Japanese-y looking, so this fits in with the neighbours too (at least I think so...):

Interior will be good for displaying stuff too (pay no heed to the magical broomstick):

Updated the Lore glossary with diagrams! New and inscrutable!

Diagram of a person

Also the magic system entry is much improved and less mushy, in my opinion. It has taken it's place as a workable science replacement in-world, as per the original intention. Plus, there's inset and outset borders on everything all over the site now, as it should be of course.
