Yesterday, I had popped into Second Life for the first time in a couple weeks after having struggled with an upper respiratory infection and its effects for the past 6 weeks. To say I was overwhelmed by the support and kind words would be an understatement.
If you read my meme post, you will know that I am really quite shy. Very much so, in fact. After being a citizen of Caledon, it took many weeks before I first posted to the group channel. I just felt awkward. It was not because of the people, but because of my own belief that I am no one really important.
Well, to the vast majority of the world, I am someone who is not important, but to a few, you have shown me a world of kindness in itself. Those whose friendship I cherish showed that the friendship is reciprocated and that brought tears to this hardened gentleman’s eyes.
Thank you for the friendship, kindness and support you have all shown me. Caledon is a wonderful community. It is much more than merely a virtual diversion, but is a solid community as real as any in RL. I am proud to be but one small part of that community and am honoured and touched by the friendship given to me.
Ok, enough mushiness.
