Our hearts are breaking for those who are struggling. We do what we can and for many of us, that’s just to stay indoors for now. I don’t have any inspirational message for you but to say that we’ll rejoice on the other side. In the meantime, we do what we do best: we reach out to our friends and loved ones; we urge them to be safe; and we worry for them. We’re nurturers at heart and now, more than ever, we need to nurture ourselves. How? We listen to our artists who put into words those feelings we all share but aren’t able to express as beautifully. Maybe we have a little extra free time at home. What better way to spend a few moments than to read. So find a comfy chair and open up this month’s issue and feel good about the immense talent that is all around us, and feel good about ourselves. We’re doing just fine. Keep it up.

March rez Posted

Read the March issue of rez in issuu:



















As buds are beginning to appear on the green stalks outside (at least for some of us), our thoughts to some springtime reading. We have just the thing for you.  We start off the March issue with an exquisite poem by our dearest departed friend, enola em Vaher, called Word of Dream.  This is followed up by two equally lovely poems paying homage to enola: the first by Luna Branwen called change in a blink, and the other by Grail, called l’artiste grace a l’art.  Jami Mills does an in-depth exploration of one of the most exciting art galleries on the grid called The Lundy Gallery, owned and curated by Lee1 Olsen.  One could easily spend months exploring this expansive exhibition space, filled with the finest artists in SL.  Zymony Guyot had something he needed to get off his chest and we’re so happy that Shadow Cabinet was the exceptional result.  Merope Madrigal returns to our pages with a sumptuous poem, Night of the Iguana.  You can just feel the balmy breeze and the tropical rhythms.  We welcome Larkbird Parx as our new music writer, who starts things off with a wonderful piece about three talented instrumentalists, with accompanying interviews.  Very informative and sensational reading.  Cat Boccaccio is back with a very short but pithy piece of micro-fiction, Saving the World.  GameC.at warns us that even AIs can get viruses in The Black Hole.  Rakshowes contributes a sensual, almost erotic, poem about the secret dalliances of plant life with Passion Flowers. Our beloved Dearstluv Writer closes out this month’s issue with a poem that describes her gentle quest.  We hope you enjoy reading this issue as much as we did bringing it to you.

It is with deep sadness that we dedicate this issue to the memory of Enola em Vaher, who devoted her life to the arts, both as an extraordinary poetess in her own right and as a patron supporter, breathing life into the Chelsea Hotel and all of its art exhibits and poetry readings. She will be missed. So it is fitting that we start with one of enola’s poems, Hope Bleeds, which we now read in a different light. Cybele Moon contributes Tales of the Caravanserai, a wonderful parable which she illustrated herself. Game Cat VR gives us a tutorial about a new way of reading in the digital age in Capture This. Our cub reporter, Barbie Starr, was looking for a subject related to the heart (February is American Heart Month), and settled on the Mayo Clinic and all it does to promote good health inworld and elsewhere. Her piece The Mayo Clinic Has Your Heart (Back) is informative and continues her work of supporting nonprofits in Second Life. Art Blue immerses himself in twin tales, EX dot G and The Afterlife, where he takes us into the world of printed hearts and Pong. Cat Boccaccio is well known for her micro-fiction and she contributes another fine example in Conquer. Eta Goldsmith joins our pages with an ode to a city dear to her heart in My Florence. Trinana Peach gives us another of her lovely poems, Home from the Sea, about an expectant bride, praying for the return of her sailor. RoseDrop Rust is never at a loss for words, and his Decadent Dream proves just that as he delves into exotic Berlin. And finally, Drover Mahogany closes our issue with a heartfelt poem of love lost.
