“When you look into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche
Yesterday I visited the China sim for the very first time. From what I read from a description on it the sim was designed as an interactive Chinese brush painting. It’s not a new sim. It’s just new to me, having never visited or even known about its existence.
I must admit as much as I still enjoy the wonders of this virtual world I had lost a little of that exploration bug. Someone once told me that the novelty does wear off after a while. Maybe there is some truth to the statement. I like to believe that I try to always keep that inner child open to the creative imagination that gets sparked by the things I do in this world, including exploring places like this one.
In thinking about this. Sometimes I just lack the patience to stand still long enough for a place to completely rez so that I can enjoy what it offers. More often than not I teleport out as quickly as I entered. The landmark in the inventory for a future visit and as time passes the intention of visiting becomes something of the past.
Though I was quite happy to visit this place and was quite delighted with the concept. The simplicity is what makes it very appealing and beautiful in my eyes.

It looks lovely in your photos. I have found that when I visit a new sim I am too busy looking for photo ops to be able to enjoy the location. I only seem to be able to just enjoy the places I have already explored, like visiting an old friend.
I have that too — always looking for that photo op. Though its nice once in a while to leave myself out of the photos. 😀
There is probably hundreds of places I don’t know about that are just as lovely. I do believe that often times whats blogged is the new things in a race to capture the new before anyone else does. 🙂
Yes, you’re right about the “new” factor. But some of my favourite places on the grid are the ones that have been around for a long time. I especially love the ones that don’t change seasonally – that way I can have a bit of spring in winter or autumn colour in summer 🙂
That rice papered slice of heaven is one of my top 3 places ever. It’s like being a part of a work of art. So peaceful! Excellent pictures!
I felt the same way.. loved the place. 🙂
