Looking for a home (2009)

Second Life Looking for a home


The new year of 2009 saw me looking for my first home. I had fallen out of a relationship which for the previous five months had brought much happiness, excitement and wonder in this new world.

Now she had a new suitor who wore a T-Shirt bearing the legend "I am Rich" emblazoned across his chest. One day she had returned to the apartment laden with shopping bags - "Gifts" she declared, there was no need for me to ask where they came from.

During the following weeks we took a weekend vacation at a snow resort to try and patch things up but it all turned to silent misery and conversations of interminable denial; at times it was too close to real life memories for comfort. Quite how much it reminded me of real life shocked me; and so dear reader - I left her.
