My quotations

Enjoy while you are alive, after it could be too late

We are what we think we are, but we are deluded by our way of thinking

I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, US essayist & poet (1803 - 1882)

Tale from the Crypt

Who am I really in this world?
Which world by the way...?
There are so many illusions floating in parallel atmospheres,
Which one is mine
Which one is my life...?

It is becoming late now to answer these questions.

Who is this ghost loading by me?
Another self searching the way to happiness?
Looking for answers to unpronounceable questions?
Seeking an improbable chat pal?

To say what, to go where?
Always questions without answers...

Men are always wanting our flesh and our blood
Our mind is of not use for them
They could even not understand
What our wishes are.
Mine are so secret, do I only know them...

Where is the exit?
On the left?
On the right?
I made my choice,
I am so lazy.

It is tedious to tell again tales already plainly told.
Homer, The Odyssey, Greek epic poet (800 BC-700 BC)


From the Irish clubs of Dublin to the Shamrock.

What is the Shamrogue Island Project?

Shamrogue Island is a virtual world sim development project inspired by a real world proposal to create three islands in the middle of Dublin Bay forming the shape of a giant shamrock, connected by a causeway "stem" to the Dublin mainland. Approval for this real world proposal is pending. *coffHOAXcoff*coffPUBLICITYPLOYcoff* In the meantime, approval and funding WERE received to build Shamrogue Island in Second Life.

What will Shamrogue Island in Second Life have to offer?

Second Life residents will enjoy in Dublin 2 Shamrogue Island all the things they enjoy in Dublin 1, including: a photorealistic themed immersive build, regular live music events, special festivals, and regular simulcasts. Two entertainment venues are being added as well as custom shops and residences. The sim is terraformed at five levels for a variety of experiences getting around, including: air (flying), ground (walking, driving), sea surface (swimming, sailing), underwater (diving), and seabed (trenches, chambers).

Who is building Shamrogue Island?

Ham Rambler is owner and business manager of Dublin in SL, whose vision brought about the Shamrogue Island expansion project. Sitearm Madonna is the project and development manager, master planner and terraformer. Kal Hocken is the overall concept designer and custom builder for functional structures such as the Viking Boat Office Towers and the Innovative Contemporary Art Gallery. Dane Benford is the custom builder for specialty structures such as the Causeway Bridge and Dublin Yacht Club Docks. Additional custom work is being commissioned.

When will Shamrogue Island be ready?

The Shamrogue Island Grand Opening is currently targeted for St. Patrick's Day, 2008. There will likely be a Sneak Preview before this date.

What else should I know?

The Lilly may fade and its leaves decay,
The Rose from its stem may sever,
The Shamrock and Thistle may pass away,
But the Stars will shine forever.
David Graham

But the shamrock has the form of a star, isn't it?

Another nice Irish club in Dublin

Fibber Magees Nightclub

An Irishman is the only man in the world who will step over the bodies of a dozen naked women to get to a bottle of stout.

Desired by you

Wow Aubrey!
I like having new friends who write such lovely poetry!

I want to be desired by you
You sit beside me, so close
the herbal scent of your hair torments
I miss holding you with my fingers

You sit so close beside me
I need you with me, friend and lover
my fingers miss holding you in me
I remember your searching lips, the erotic feasts

I need you with me, lover and friend
deep and real.. nurture this love
remember our searching lips, the erotic feasts
and the aroused skin surrounding your perfect nipples

Deep and real feed this love
with the torture of your herbal scented hair
and the way your perfect warm nipples arouse my skin
I want to be desired by you

Who wouldn't want to be desired by you!

I love The Blarney Stone Irish Bar, really a good place, thank you Aubrey for having took me along there.

Love is an irresistable desire to be irresistably desired.
Robert Frost, US poet )

On the boat of life

I am making my way through the vast ocean
Destination unknown and direction unsure
My sails are torn from so many tempests
How much do I have left before my last haven?
Which cape is better?
My steering is wavering
And I am not the captain of the ship...
Sneeking among the reefs
One of them perhaps is waiting for me.

Sometimes I feel under my feet the plank
From which I could dive
Wondering what would be hidden in the dark depth
But uncertain of the answer I swiftly come back
On board!

Help thy brother's boat across, and lo! thine own has reached the shore.
Hindu Proverb
