Closing galleries

Love is letting go

To love is to live
To live is to let go
Love is letting go

If we hold on too tight to the ones we love
The bond of love may not hold

Our souls need to be free
Need to breathe
To travel

We may meet each other in a train
In a city
On an island
And we mirror each other 
Till it's time
To move on

The sharing of love has its own time and space
The ones we love, we love for eternity
Because love is forever
Always

So be grateful for all time spent with the ones you love
And be loving to all who spend their time with you

And live
And love
And let go

~ written by Zena Zemlja ~



An interesting journey 

I built my art business in Second Life over a period of ten years, representing several artists in this virtual reality who trusted me with their precious work. 
I founded the project of Legal Quality Art Galleries, trying to get residents of Second Life aware of copyright on online art. I think I may have given some people reason for thought, I know some of them closed their galleries, filled with illegally downloaded art, and others decided to only buy art from galleries that clearly showed their business being a legitimate one, crediting the original artists for their gorgeous work, selling it for a reasonable price that respected the art, and framing the work with sufficient pixels and respect for the aspect ratio of the artwork. 

After ten years of exhibiting work from other artists and selling their work on their behalf as their art agent in Second Life, I now will close that chapter of an online interesting adventure, and focus on my own poetry art. 

Galleries

Two weeks ago the Histoire d'O Gallery closed its doors, and the day after tomorrow the Main Gallery will be closing as well. 

I will keep the Wiccan Gallery up and running, exhibiting my Witches Poetry Art and some of my Mystic Poetry Art. 

Roleplay

I'm not only retiring from being an art agent but also from being involved in online D/s roleplay. Hence I will no longer exhibit or sell my D/s poetry art. It has been an interesting adventure, but not one I want to continue any further in the online worlds. 

Artists

I want to thank the artists who trusted me with their precious work: Marcus Ranum, Francois Benveniste, Samuel Edelstein, Mickie Mueller, China Hamilton and Mick Payton. Today I sent a goodbye gift in group Body, Mind & Spirit, a box with an artwork of each of the artists. To those who are sad to see these online collections in Second Life go: please go visit their websites where you can find an opportunity to order their work for your First Life. 

Workshops and Advice 

I'm currently also taking a break from running my spiritual workshops. I may over time run them again or develop new ones. I am still available as a consultant for those who need advice about spirituality or (online) relationships. However, due to circumstances in my First Life, my focus has to be on my First Life. So you may not see me that much online these days. But I will still be around, to meet my friends, and as a poet, artist and art gallery owner of my Wiccan Art Gallery. 

Groups

The group Body, Mind & Spirit will continue to exist, where you will get updates on my future plans, and notices about events of Second Life friends in business. The Groups of Legal Quality Art will also be continued, giving art gallery owners and customers who stand up for legal art in Second Life, an opportunity to meet. The Kiosk Program for the groups will no longer continue. I found that galleries that met the standards often were selling the work of the art gallery owner, and those who would sell work of others just did not care to meet any of the standards. They would often just remove the art of the artists I represented and never minded about the other work they illegally sold. I simply have no energy anymore to make people aware of the importance of online copyright. Those who care often are already doing the right thing, those who don't care are simply not to be helped. 

Customers

I want to thank all of you, my customers, for your appreciation for the art in my galleries and for the way I ran my art business. I got a lot of messages of appreciation over the last ten years, which was a huge encouragement. Time now has come to focus on other projects that need my attention, especially in my First Life. Thank you all. I will see you around. 


May the blessings of the Goddess be with you, 
with each and everyone of you.

Update Art Galleries

It was time to reorganize the galleries. Like in rl, a lot of businesses in SL have been closing because of the crisis that has hit us, yes, it also has hit the virtual worlds. My art business is so lucky to survive, but I had to size it down last few months.

So all galleries on the previous art sim, where each artist had one gallery of its own, are now combined into one big gallery: the Main Art Gallery Body, Mind & Spirit. You will find collections of each artist and those collections will be changing every few months.



Next to that I started uploading a selection of all collections to SL Marketplace. Currently up some erotic photography collections and a selection of the witches poetry. Be sure to login and have the maturity set to adult to see the erotic collections. More to come!



Currently up in the Main Art Gallery Body, Mind & Spirit inworld: the erotic and D/s photography by Marcus Ranum, Francois Benveniste, China Hamilton and Mick Payton.

Also up inworld in the Main Art Gallery: the mystical paintings by Samuel Edelstein and the wiccan art by Mickie Mueller.

Last but not least exhibited at the Main Gallery: a selection of the poetry by Zena Zemlja and Odilia Oldrich.

The Histoire d'O Art Gallery has moved from the old Roissy sim to the new Roissy-en-France sim. The full Story of O art collection of Marcus Ranum is still up, but will change over time into D/s collections of several Body, Mind & Spirit photographers.



The Wiccan Art Gallery is still up at Witches Island, where it is located since 2007, currently exhibiting the art of Mickie Mueller and Samuel Edelstein. The art collections in this gallery will change every few months too. You will be notified!



Enjoy your art!

Bright Blessings,

Adult Furnished Homes for Rent

Welcome to Body, Mind & Spirit Properties!

You are renting a fully furnished home with high quality adult furniture in the living room, bedroom, bathroom and your own private playroom. Your home and most of the furniture is built with the newest mesh technology.












You are living on quiet peaceful lowlag homestead sim, renting a 6048 m2 parcel with the use of 346 prims. Next to the fully furnished home of 246 prims, this allows you 100 extra prims for own use.

You have the additional option for a little pond in your backyard and a fully flowered garden, which still will leave you with at least 50 prims for own use.



You will not really need the extra prims, since the home is completely furnished, with fully working lamps, a newspaper on table, and even towels and bathrobes in your bathroom.

You may want to save your prims for practical purposes like unpacking, and for allowing props to rezz when using the furniture.



Your home is decorated with erotic quality art in each room.

The art in the homes is sponsored by Art Galleries Body, Mind & Spirit, founder of Legal Quality Art Galleries in Second Life.



You are renting a home at a SIM with an appreciation for the famous novel Histoire d’O (Story of O) by Pauline Réage. Therefore you will find the fully equipped Story of O Pillars in your home.

The Story of O Pillars in the homes is sponsored by Domshop, your one stop shop for BDSM furniture.



You rent this fully furnished adult home for only 3000 L a month.

You have the option to pay 750 L a week (which would be 3215 L a month). So paying per month gives you a discount on the rent of 50 L a week (a total discount of 215 L a month).

Go here to see the rentals or buy the landmark at Marketplace.
(Login to Marketplace to see the rentals, they are set to adult content.)












Send a message (IM or notecard) to Zena Zemlja if you are interested in renting a home.

You will be granted the abilities to manage your parcel as a renter. You also will be added to the system to manage your home doors and windows.



There are only 4 of these new furnished homes for rent. Only two of them are currently available.












All four homes for rent are located at the East side of the big pond and bridges where the swans swim and are fed.












On the West side of the SIM the galleries of Body, Mind & Spirit are located, with mystical and erotic art.












Next to the galleries you find the Stonehenge classroom for art related spiritual and adult workshops, where unicorns meet, deers are fed, and birds sing you every day their happy song.












With any questions, contact Zena Zemlja or Odilia Oldrich, Body, Mind & Spirit Properties Managers.
