cherry manga sculpture at parc des arts

I met Cherry Manga a long time ago in early 2007. A consummate artist, she creates her vision using several mediums. She has always inspired me and has had quite an influence on my own personal life. I have a photograph that she did a long time ago that has given me strength in times of need. It speaks volumes about the strength of women, and how we relate to the virtual world here in Second Life... and it speaks to me even in real life.

Today, I visit her latest sculptures at Parc des Arts high in the sky. I spent a couple hours here just walking around and experiencing the installation. Very beautiful work... and I now have a new sculpture on WETLands.

whitewater kayak derby

Good friend and fellow paddler, Guiles sent out a shout in the SL Paddlers Association for the first ever Whitewater Kayak Derby taking place on June 27, 2009 at his site over on Tidewater Canyon River on the Wilder Keys sim. I met him over a kayak while paddling the river on his whitewater course. Guiles has scripted a cool kayak that navigates over scripted whitewater prims. I got the system over on WETLands and I have been refining the layout using his product. It's way cool.

Guiles will be selling his kayaks at a kiosk on RiverLand. I got him set up in the sushi house complete with Japanese maples, udon noodles and a broad beach area where you can grab one of his kayaks, surf the ocean and paddle towards the whitewater course.

He just announced the first ever Whitewater Kayak Derby! The derby will take place on June 27th at 11:00 am. Prizes and cash awards total over $3,000L. Just IM Guiles Tidewater for a registration and/or more information. I got my whitewater kayak ready and I've been practicing daily. Woot!
