Life Happens


Memorable things often happen without planning. Like on March 24 Ludwig van Beethoven died at the age of 56 in Vienna, Austria. Oh yeah, that was in 1827. Something else momentous happened this past Monday, March 24 … and it was LIFE! It was life at NonProfit Commons Aloft. We had a party.

I’m not sure if someone organized it or if the energy just demanded it. Everyone was so excited. I arrived late and the party was really rock’in with AVs flying all over, chatting it up and just having a great time. Anika was positively bubbling over and Kurt was doing an imitation of Top Gun buzzing the tower. In Kenzo even made an appearance and from her attire it was obvious she was not working (hehe). I only wish I knew everyone and could mention their names. Manifest Destiny was there. There was also a handsome cowboy (smiles).

So what brought all of us together? Well, after a dismal week of news out of Tibet, Iraq and uncertainty with the upcoming U.S. elections we were all ready for something silly. What?

FIREWORKS! And it was glorious. Sadly, Kurt Vonnegut and Phillip Dick weren’t there. But for all you live AVs run-n-round Second Life it’s rumored that a second act will follow. Be there.
