What matters to me...

The grid is down and I leave for the airport in 3 hours so I am taking the opportunity to talk about something very close to my heart, The SL(tm) Relay for Life. My family has been fortunate so far in not having any major brushes with the terrible disease of cancer, but in Phil's Place, one of my dearest friends is. Her name is Artistic Fimicoloud. I don't remember how I met her exactly, but we were friends by the time of last year's relay.

Last year I did a lap at Relay on my own, taking my time to grab some pictures. This year we are both members of the Passionate Redheads team.

Whatever you can do, please do it. Join a team, contribute at a Relay Kiosk, or run a lap by yourself and contribute, as I did last year, for the distance you run. Do it for everyone affected by cancer as I will be, but in my case it is especially for Fimi.

Here is a shot from last year's Relay. The sims are varied and fascinating -- it's actually hard to keep running LOL.

At least drop by the Passionate Redheads campsite and cheer us on! GO RELAY!

Hiyas Samara,

Nice post. For me it's the same with family and no cancer. RFL last year caught me and wanted to do more this year then only pay a few lindens.
