The Ozzie Paule Chronicles: Adventures In Second Life

24 05 2010

BACK TO THE FUTURE TO RECONNECT WITH THE MYSTIC

Once a smiling Ozzie Paule rezzed into a Second Life
Onto a remote spot of the ImagiLearning islands
And he gazed as he walked around this place of tranquility
Who’ll help me connect with the island residents here?

Oh Second Life, oh Second Life, what a place to be
I need to explore and create in this immersive new world
Where there’s a will there’s a way so anything is possible
Let’s think how I can connect with the island residents here

So he stopped in his tracks and gazed into the ocean blue
And recalled a story from long ago about the ImagiLearning master
A mystic avatar by the name of Virtual Bacon, or VB for short
Will VB help me connect with the island residents here?

Oh Second Life, oh Second Life, what a place to be
How can I live and explore in this immersive new world?
Where there’s a will there’s a way so anything is possible
Recall the tools to connect with the island residents here

So he launched inworld communications and pondered what to write
But how could he easily reach out to the mystic named VB?
Luckily he’d befriended VB during the inaugural virtual learning experience
And there he was on the list of friends-currently inworld and online
Will VB remember me, one of the noobs from eons past?

So he highlighted VB’s name, clicked IM and began to tap away
Hi VB, it’s Ozzie, the guy with the quaint lilting accent and the funny green hat
Do you remember the time when you corralled a flock of wayward Aussie emus?
I’m back inworld for more adventure and would really appreciate your help
I’d like to reconnect with old friends from the ImagiLearning community

Within seconds VB responded: G’day Ozzie, great to hear you’re back with us
Lots has changed at ImagiLearning island since you last visited this magical world
However, your community friends still ask about you and raise a glass of cheer
To the Aussie from Down Under who brought his unique sense of humor
And a willingness to explore and collaborate to expand our sensory perception

Any chance of a teleport?, I typed as I pondered the exciting developments
Sure thing, responded VB, and up popped the familiar blue box to TP me
One click and I was gone in a whirl of expectation for time travel par excellence
To rez again in a swirling cloud at a place where I had not been before
Second Life lag I thought, as I began to reappear in familiar form and stance

I could hear VB speaking before I could see him as the scene rezzed slowly before my eyes
One of those days in Second Life, said VB, but great you’ve returned for more adventures
We have much to discuss my friend and to get you up to speed on exciting developments
Thanks for the warm welcome, I remarked as I took a deep breath to recollect my thoughts
And to recall prior experiences with old friends in planning, creating and testing projects
