Things change

I mentioned yesterday that I had helped ellie (Elizabeth) establish her "house" in Yangpa; this replaces her cottage which was one of Lizzie's early prototypes and which had a door keyed to me and no one else (well probably to Lizzie as well).

So it had always been a point of frustration for ellie and I should have built her a TP door mat, because her solution to the problem was to expand from a small cottage to a Hobbit's Warren (or so it seems to me, but then I am no specialist in the fae-world that ellie inhabits), anyway here is the "house" from where you last (more or less) saw me standing:

And here it is from the other side, and an aerial view too -- the word "BIG" springs to mind when compared to roberta's cottage:

It also looks (above) like we have found Gandlaf's long lost hats :D

Anyway I took the liberty of showing it and its inside to evie:

This new "house" does of course bring about the question of the theme (and to some extent even the mission) of Paderborn at Yangpa. I had always envisaged it as a Medieval village as shown in the print I have of Paderborn. And I am sure the ancients did believe in the fae-world, but I am not sure they were used to seeing it on their front door-step :D

And of course the mission of Paderborn was to try to capture Annemie's spirit of firm kindness and strong guidance, and provide the peace and solitude (and support: love and linden tiers) to enable damaged submissives to regain their strength, to centre themselves, and gain confidence to go out into the wild tumble and chaos that is the SL BDSM scene.

It is now about two years since I met Annemarie, and as I remarked earlier 18 months she died. And I have not achieved my dream of creating a living memorial to all of her goodness and kindness and strength.

So on this last day of my freedom (before I return to work and the long hours that deny me access to SL and my lovely friends), I find myself in a very pensive mood.
