Easter Monday is cold and it snows in the garden in RL when we collect our Easter eggs. I ve created an egg in SL as well, to surprise my fellow members. It might turn into a tradition, who knows. The weather in Sl is always nice, you can illuminate your eggs and make them fly, sail or into a vehicle, wear them, give them all sizes and colours just by moving your mouse. I like them egg-shaped, lying quietly and waiting to be found.

I just did some reading on the Strength Movement on their blog. Interesting development that promotes another way of looking at your child. Always take the bright side of life: look at strength, rather than weaknesses. My kids went to a an innovative school, that looked at all aspects of development: emotional, cognitive, social and cultural but also could have done with this spirit. They have developed into fine kids and still learning. A promising trend that has an equivalent in my country: New Learning. A buzzword that nevertheless holds an excellent ideal, similar to the Strength movement.
This beautiful dome is the result of the activities of the people on Strength Movement Island. Later today at 12.00 noon SLT there will be a Q&A with Jennifer Fox, the author of "Your Child's Strengths" and the curriculum behind The Island's design. Some of the promises do not work, I had loved to take the balloon tour but it didn't work for me.
