It's "Corpse Week" this week at For our Monday Meme we thought about "Landscapes with a Corpse," and so for our Friday Find it only seemed proper to visit an SL Cemetery. It turns out that many of you have been to Linden Memorial, so today I thought I'd visit Second Afterlife Cemetery.

As you'll see in the video, gravesites mark both SL and RL passings. Marking an SL passing in SL only makes sense. And I thought marking RL passings in SL was quite interesting. Statistics are that after the initial events, most graves are never visited again, not even once. So to let someone rest in a virtual place where friends anywhere across this earth can remember them is quite sublime.

Second Afterlife Cemetery is maintained by Lena Anthony, whose own tombstone reads, "Lena Anthony, Rezzed 10/30/2007, Unrezzed 4/5/2011, But refuses to cross over." As I understand it, she's no longer alive in-world, but her ghost appears as needed to maintain the cemetery and help out new internees.

As usual, my clumsy video is rendered almost sublime thanks to the beauty of a soundtrack from CCMixter. "Half Grey Latte" is by Syenta, featuring Kevin MacLeod and KungFu.
