If Second Life is a theatre it is the players who make it so, not only have they laid every brick in this world but their daily presence makes in- world experiences so rich.

Some people celebrate their real life birthdays, some their Second Life birthday (Rezzday) with music, dancing and virtual champagne. People become very emotional here and I have been the guest at numerous Second life weddings and also, sadly a memorial sevice for a resident.

How do I describe the experience of being in a simulated world where a widowed avatar, surrounded by dozens of close friends cries at the loss of her best friend, a man she has never met and now never will?
