Sex and Second Life

Serendipity

Serendipity means a “happy accident” or “pleasant surprise”; specifically, the accident of finding something good or useful without looking for it. We encounter situations such as this one, more often than we think, and give the difficulty to translate the word, it has been accepted by other languages as it is.; first coined by Horace Walpole on his Persian fairy tale “The Three Princes of Serendip” who throughout the tale, kept making accidental discoveries.


In the movie named after this word, the protagonists decide to rely on happy accidents to dictate the course of their future relationship-to-be, to make a point that maybe fate, destiny or life -even a higher power- wants them together.


Some people believe in destiny and fate, that life has a plan for us and that these random moments of serendipity guide us to the point where we are supposed to be; one of my co-workers in Gayworldsnews, personal friend and one I am happy to call part of my second life family, stumbled upon this candy heart by a mere act of serendipity, he had been munching on candy hearts without stopping to read the messages, and the one heart he stopped to read, was one with the letters FAB on it; it immediately dawned on him as a message from beyond from our dear Fabrice Snook, founder and owner of GWNs, whose dream and legacy we all have promised to carry on, a small reminder that we may headed in the right direction and that his legacy will live on.


Personally, I don’t believe in destiny or fate, but I have to admit that there have been times, specially during my second life where I have faced random moments of serendipity which have brought me a lot of joy and have taken me to the point where I am now -specially with my son Skylar, an act of total serendipity-, so maybe Horace Walpole was right, and life is nothing but a complex net of serendipitous acts.

Serendipity significa “accidente feliz” ó “agradable sorpresa”; específicamente, el encontrar algo útil o bueno de forma accidental. Nos enfrentamos a situaciones como esta, más a menudo de lo que nos imaginamos, y dado lo dificil de traducir la palabra, esta ha sido trasladada y aceptada por otros idiomas; creada originalmente por Horace Walpole en su cuento de hadas Persa “los tres principes de Serendip” los cuales durante la historia, se encontraban con estos accidentes felices.


En la película del mismo nombre, los protagonistas deciden de confiar en estos accidentes felices para dictar el curso de su fitura relación, para probar que el destino, o la vida -incluso un poder superior- los quiere juntos.


Algunas personas creen que en el destino, que la vida tiene un plan para nosotros y que estos momentos al azar nos guían a ese punto en el que se supone debemos estar; unos de mi compañeros en Gayworldsnews, amigo personla y uno de los que me enorgullece llamar parte de mi familia en el second life, se encontro de manera accidental con este corazon de caramelo por un simple acto de serendipity, ya que había estado comiendolos de la caja sin prestarle atención a los mensajes que ponían y justo aquel que da la vuelta para leer, leía “FAB”, lo que el mismo interpretó como un mensaje del mismo Fabrice Snook, fundador de GWN, cuyo sueño y legado nos hemos prometido mantener con vida.


Yo no creo en el destino, pero he de admitir que han habido momentos, especialmente aquellos en mi second life en los que me he encontrado con momentos de serendipity los que me han traido gran felicidad y me han llevado al punto en el que estoy ahora -especialmente con my hijo Skylar, un acto de total serendipity-, así que a lo mejor Horace Walpole estaba en lo correcto, y la vida sólo es un entretejido de actos complejos de serendipity.

Life is a series of transitions. It’s not about where you are right now. It’s about which direction you’re going. Smile, and drink a frappuccino.
