Recent discussions in other blogs, inworld and among friends, along with the season has had me thinking. Rather than a contest of "hotness" or popularity, I would like to invite those few hardy souls who actually endure my prose to post a comment here. Tell me about someone, or more than one someone, who is especially kind or thoughtful. Tell me of someone who makes your world or our world a better place. Just stop and think about who it is you know that makes you smile, makes you feel better, makes your day a bit nicer.
I will start, but it will be hard because there are so darn many of you out there.
*First of course is my Beloved, whose birthday is today. His kindness and interest in the world made me fall in love with him and makes each day a joy.
*Martini Discovolante, my co-Dean, who is sweet, patient and ubertalented.
*Damian Delacroix, who is one of the kindest people I have met in SL- consistently patient and helpful, and a joy to know.
*Desmond Shang, the hardest working man I know. Completely mad, but so very kind and caring. He genuinely cares about every person whose life he touches. It is amazing that someone can maintain such a huge monkeysphere!
*Otenth Paderborn, another genuinely kind and caring person.
*Excalibur Longstaff, Zen and the Art of the 3D Virtual Browser!
*Nabila Peterman - she is amazingly patient and kind
*Kamilah Hauptman - an enormous heart, and much patience. And she rarely toys with her snacks.
*Autopilotpatty Poppy - wonderfully kind and generous lady who has been working hard for 4 years in Caledon, mostly behind the scenes (or behind the camera!) and out of the spotlight. She is an amazing person who I am proud to know.
This is a partial list - far too many wonderful people to mention and besides:
I would like to hear from you - who are the kindest people you know?
