RFL Wrapup

There isn't much I can say about the RFL wrapup that hasn't been said on the SL Relay for Life website, except that Saturday's presentations were moving, and inspiring. However, I spotted this today in the News - which gives a much better glimpse of the event that my few snapshots could.

When I think of these amazing builds that were put together on 35 sims in a short time, the track that we walked and ran, the avatars (each with a human being behind him/her/it) that lined the track and cheered the survivors, caregivers, runners and walkers on, the incredibly inspiring music choices played by T1 Radio as well as the uncountable live music events - I am still astounded and humbled. What potential there is in us all!

Mimi Carpenter

Yesterday, Mimi and her family stopped by on their way between larger cities - we went to lunch and walked around for a bit. Flash Geiger, who is responsible for my presence in SL, came along - he is a fount of local (and not-so-local) information. On the way from my place to downtown we experienced a small (very small) synchronicity event - I'll leave it to Dolmere to recount what I shared with him :-)

As for the inevitable "what's she really like?" questions - there were no surprises :-) - RL Mimi is very much the same sweet person that she is in SL.
