Like Real Life’s Tower of Pisa, Clarity’s lighthouse in the southeast corner of her property stands at a significant angle.
The rezzer for the lighthouse even remains inside. My educated guess, given all the information at hand, is that Ms. Dagostino bought this Minoa property, hung out for a while and rezzed a couple of houses and other objects, then became bored with it and perhaps with Second Life as a whole, but didn’t rescind her tier payment for some reason. The property has probably been sitting idle here going on almost a decade now. So we can say the lighthouse and attached land is about as much a part of (the over 2 year old) Collagesity as anything else. Absorption by osmosis, I guess.
View from the top of the lighthouse into Collagesity.
Some smaller parcels of non-abandoned land lie to the south of Collagesity, like this 512 serving as an backup post for Hot Silly Peppers Lab, apparently the creator of a product called magic box….
… and then this 1680 parcel to its east honoring Iraqi War casualties through pictures and text.
Setting aside all the Linden returned abandoned land, Blynn Heron is the largest land owner in Minoa along with myself. Her various eastern parcels mix the functions of residential living and seasonal celebration. My artist friend and fellow blogger Pearl Grey, for instance, features Blynn’s Halloween setup in this Million Happy Endings post from October.
Sandwiched between Blynn’s land and Collagesity, in effect, is the 624 parcel of Pearl and I’s mutual friend Art Oluja. Since taking the below photo, I’ve learned that Art has decided to set the parcel up for sale. Shame to be losing her as a neighbor if it comes to that. Perhaps we can still keep in touch with each other from more of a distance.
In the sim of Juanita below Minoa is still situated a small cottage perched on a rise above a pool I rezzed about 1 1/2 years back now. The land has since become surrounded by abandoned land with no option to drag in more objects from other parcels with building permissions. It will most likely remain as is, unless the actual owner returns and decides to set something up themselves here. Not very likely during my Minoan time, however, given this particular 512 parcel was bought in April *2005*.
I, through a now sober Baker Bloch, returned to the Tyta parcel with the non-functioning theatre to see what I might have missed there, given Bloch’s state at the time. I found out that the group who rezzed the theatre also owned most of the Tyta land just north of Rubi — along Robin Lane again — that I also owned back in 2013. Coolie. Several houses exist on this land, along with a low ceiling cave.
Finally we must mention “Collagesity West” through a picture and leave it at that.
