And I sure know somethin'"

"If music be the food of love, play on."
It felt amazing when I first found the roo avatar in sl. There was something about it, more than just some silly avatar or imaginary character. It was a visual manifestation of the totality of my being, my spirit. All the weird, dark, strange, goofy, silly, brave weak strong etc elements of my personality summed up in one critter.
I constantly feel as if i'm on a perpetual walkabout. it may seem like a lonely road but i'm always running into and hopping beside one traveler or another and gaining wisdom from each encounter. I might walk beside a desert yet deserts contain some of the most surprising kinds of life you'll ever find. The stars-our hopes and dreams-may seem so distant yet every moment we reach towards them, some part of their light trickles down and touches us, inspires us, causes us to keep reaching. The thrum of a didgirido-powerful, deep, rhythmic, primal, ancient-allows us to let free the music trapped within us.
This is why I chose roo. They are a very poetic creature.
