.. realize ..

Do you read much?  I find that I don’t read nearly as much as I did in the past.  Perhaps it is because of other distractions such as work, TV, internet, games, yes…even Second Life. In the past at times, I’ve had to actually stop reading for a bit because I’d become too engrossed in the story and not sleep!  Books and reading have always been an escape for me. A way to experience another story without living it.   Throughout my years,  libraries were special places to visit.  I even worked in one when I was young.  A library contains so much information; offers so many ideas; and possibly even offers learning opportunities if you take advantage.  While the internet provides so much data now, I still like to escape to a library now and then for the quietness between the stacks and racks of books.

In Second Life, there are libraries.  Some are active with readings and other events.  Others are places to just sit quietly.  No matter the reason or the activities going on, I like stopping in to see the interpretation of the iconic setting.  The library in the Town of Honeybriar, a family role-play community is located on Starlight Grove on the ground floor of the Town Hall. I like the way the owners set it up with the reading areas, the info areas with workstations, the scrolls, and a children’s reading area too.  The Town of Honeybriar is a developing family role play community that offers opportunities for role play with medical services, fire department and other emergency services, dinners out, shopping, and neighborly interaction.  An elementary and high school are on the horizon which will also bring more opportunities.  It is terraformed and landscaped with a tilt towards the southeastern US coastline and is very pretty.  Visit the rental office also on Starlight Grove to find out just what is available.  If you decide to rent, just tell them Sunshine sent you ❤
