Mont Saint Michel now gone from Second Life

Second Life grid constantly evolves… we need a museum of builds.

Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Mont Saint Michel - now departed Second Life Mont Saint Michel – now departed Second Life

Several people have contacted me over the last couple of days concerning Mont Saint Michel, Second Life.

In September 2015, and following Ciaran Laval’s lead, I reported the region would apparently be closing at the start of October, the news of the closure having been given by Moeka Kohime via her Flickr stream.

It seemed the news was premature; come November 2015, Petr Hastings-Vanbeeck dropped me a line to say the region was still alive and kicking. It continued to be that way through early 2016 and on through the year.

What the Huck?


I’ve had a number of poems accepted by SL publications over the last few months, with ‘City Boy‘ the latest of these and appearing in the current issue of Rez magazine. This, the October edition, is dedicated to Serene Bechir, a longstanding member of the Second Life poetry community who passed away in RL a few weeks ago. I didn’t know Serene as well as I wish now that I did, and it’s a sad irony that I last spoke to her a couple of days after our meeting up at the SL memorial for Stosh Quartz (who is honoured in the June issue).
