September rushed by rapidly and the Grid Trek Magazine staff was traveling, taking photographs and working to produce another great magazine featuring beautiful sims in Second Life. October is the month of autumn landscapes and Halloween fun. Get ready for cooler weather and be sure to visit the wonderful Halloween haunts found in Second Life in this time of Covid-19. There are people to meet and fun to be had even in these trying times. We wish you safety and health.

This time of year usually brings cool weather, colorful fall leaves, plans for Halloween parties, and a lot of fun. This year, 2020, things are vastly different. I have not posted recently because I had many people in my family die. My father died of bacterial pneumonia April 9th, my mother´s sister died of Covid-19 on May 11th, my younger cousin died of an unexpected heart attack on May 25th. Then, my mother, who had been fighting cancer which had spread to a lung, died September 17th. It was all too much for her, the deaths, the polluted air from the California wildfires. I will be dedicating this Grid Trek magazine issue to these family members. Please be safe and stay healthy.
