A friend sent this web address in her email and I was blown away by the video. Jill Bolte Taylor, a neuroanatomist, woke up one morning having a stroke, and she explored that reality and recounts it here.

Since I am in several worlds these days, I want to report back.
In Human Age, there is one generic avatar image for women, and one for men. For my profile, I made this image. I am one of the EggHeads, so I donned the conehead and put myself in front of backdrop of Osprey posing on a huge pile of rocks in SL. My first job was stone chooser, so that is why I chose this image.
In Human Age, I am very close to fulfilling my skills, so that I can begin to focus on the next step, preparing for my first quest, that of learning to start a fire (YAY!)
Here I am in Bodega Gallery, Portland, Oregon, USA, Twinity. Yes, I am that generic avatar in front of one of my paintings. I even had a visitor today. Because Twinity is in its beta phase, I can spend as much as I like. I have gone into virtual debt putting up my paintings and furnishing my gallery. I gave up my apartment. I don't intend to cook, sleep or use the bathroom in Twinity, and I can visit with people in the gallery or in their locations.
I, with my blogger name, ElleCoyote, rejoined There.com again last night, and spoke with Osprey. I had, unfortunately, chosen to purchase a hairdo similar to hers, so we looked like twins in our "Medusas". Now I have different hair, and my snazzy shades, so there will be no mistaking me for Osprey!
