The Impermanence of Permanent Structures

One of the aetheric journals I read regularly mentioned the demise of Laputa, a sky city. (Naturally, I cannot remember the source, or I would gladly provide a link. Feel free to refresh my memory.) I feel a pang of discomfort at the loss of a wonderful steampunk-y build. It is a reminder, though, that nothing is permanent - not even the parts that look permanent.

I had visited once upon a time, meant to visit again and make a more thorough exploration, but never did. If, as is sometimes said, nothing is truly gone until it fades from our collective memories, I offer the following picture:

Very true. Even within sims that are still standing many things change. Fort Caledon had stood for 2 years in the Highlands and has gone.

Other sims like Sigil have gone and in its case caused a split creating Tombstone and CrippleCreek.

Yes it's sad to see them go but it also means there's always new things to discover too!
