Downgrading Second Life

Here is my alter ego Kuehleborn Spengler, saying goodbye to his home “Undine” and the land he just abandoned. Last week I downgraded my SL-account to the free basic account.
It took some time before I made up my mind. Why? I don’t know! Be honest: there is nothing left in Second Life now, fascinating as it was when it all began. I never meet any of my friends online anymore, I think they’ve all moved on a long time ago. And, worst of all, SL has become soooo sloooow.
So, I downgraded; I only kept my avatar – after all he is still a part of me.
No home, no land, no costs. Without any luggage I’ll never feel obliged again to log in to the grid. And, being free to choose, I’m not sure if I’ll ever return voluntarily.
