Pass It Forward

Some time ago I was stunned by an amazing photo on Flickr. It took my breath away. As I often do, I decided to write to the creator of that image and tell them what an amazing job they did. I do that often. I even do it to strangers in RL if I notice something amazing about them.

The first time I ever did this I was at a RL mall. I saw a rather young woman with the most gorgeous pure white hair EVER — no tinge of yellow or any other unwelcome tint. Just pure white. I mustered up my courage, went up to her and told her so. She was absolutely delighted and squealed that she was going to tell her mother what this ‘stranger’ had said as her mother had been urging her to color it because it made her look old. It did not! She was stunning with gorgeous skin (Winter tones) and that hair! Maybe I was even a bit jealous and wished I would go prematurely white (not grey!) too.

After that, I did it more often. Always I was met with a positive response in a situation where someone really could reasonably look at me like I am totally out of my mind.

But, going back to the lovely Flickr photo …

The artist behind the image was non other than Datrip Blackheart, the creator behind the fabulous Legal Insanity line. A brilliant designer, to be sure. And his response to my compliment about his photo was so genuine and humble. It was refreshing to meet yet another really wonderful person in SL. For this reason I decided to support Legal Insanity — the designer is nice! You can find them here:

Pictured is the Damayanti robe de soir which comes in a variety of colors. Love love love it.



It has taken me a few days to put myself together. The graduation of the first VISIONAIRE students was wonderful and I admit that I cried. I’m going to miss meeting with everyone, but I know we will still stay in touch. If you missed the graduation and/or the exhibit at the Penumbra sim, you can still catch their mini-galleries at this location: Be sure to follow them on Flickr (any of their wonderful works are not at the exhibit due to space and prim considerations).

Congratulations: Anouk Lefavre, Eva Cross, Imani Enzo, Liat Reina, Mari Firelight, Polly Elan, Prisilla S. Avro, Seashell Dench, Solde Rothmanay, and Tamara Artis.

Spring is in the air!  FineSmith brings us flowers with the Botanica collection — which comes in many lovely colors (the photo is aqua).  The ensemble features a head wreath, earrings, and necklace.  You can see a bit of the dress called Spring as well.

I’m feeling it!  It’s great to burst forth from the snuggly confines of Winter!

VISIONAIRE Institute first graduating class

Here’s a wee teaser for an event you won’t want to miss.  See what the Visionaire students have been up to as they showcase their work each in their own gallery for their final show.  Stroll down the street, look at art, sit and chat with a friend in a lovely surrounding.  And there’s more surprises in store for you too! …
