It Helps to be Able to Visualize

If you've scoffed at my posts on Second Life & sailing I don't blame you...after all the idea of sailing in a virtual world seems to defeat many of the things we love about the experience. Namely being out-of-doors and enjoying the wind in our hair (and sails) the sun on our face, etc. But if you have to be on a computer...then why not participate in an extension of your passion. Not perfect by any means but, as I've attested to in previous posts, certainly intriguing. Have a glance at this video, footage of a Second Life Sailing Regatta in the Hollywood region. It helps to be able to visualize.

Alas, I have not the bandwidth to enjoy the video. But I also know that Second Life is more real than people give it credit for. There's a preacher here in Albuquerque who's also the pastor of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Second Life, and she says her online flock is just as real as the one she meets physically every Sunday.
