I have been without my computer too long now. I fell asleep while reading this morning and dreamed I walked into a real-life store staffed with some of the Style St✰rs of Second Life walking around in the flesh, talking up fashion and trying to style me up to the minute.
First there was Sasy Scarborough who kept posing while I was talking to her, bending over and stroking her leg and reminding me that clean lines and smooth skin were the ultimate fashion essential. I was flummoxed and kept naming skin brands, “So should I get Lelutka, Glam Affair, Belleza, PXL, Adam n Eve? What are you saying?”
She just shook her head in disappointment. The thing is you never want to disappoint Sasy. After all, she’s the standard bearer of fashion bloggers and even though she’s just the tiniest bit bossy (Surely that is why she came embodied as Angelina Jolie) it’s always for your own good.
So of course, I was sad that I was so disappointing, but after I woke up I realized that she was telling me to wear SLink’s hands and feet with appliers for smooth skin and of course her own brand of FLAIR manicures and pedicures that come in nearly 100 versions. Sometimes I am not the brightest person while I sleep.
There’s been an absence in my Second Life® and in the lives of many others for the past two months. A dear friend, Squinternet Larnia of Donna Flora, has been struggling with illness. She is now out of hospital and working hard to recover and find the strength to keep fighting for her health.
I remember when I was sick last year how she would IM me all the time to ask after my health and share her hope and concern for me. There were times when I felt really low and the love and friendship I found in Second Life lifted my spirit and gave me strength. I hope those of us whose Second Lives have been touched by her art, her imagination and her work as well as those who have come to know her kind and gentle spirit can do the same for her.
Let us send her messages of love, encouragement and support to lift her spirit and give her strength so that she comes back to us soon with renewed strength and good health.
And to that end, many of us have joined together in a project to highlight the fabulous Donna Flora (Marketplace) designs that have beautified our world from A to Z. Over the next week, there will be many more posts added to this abecedarian list highlighting her amazing work. The original plan was to post them all on one day, but so many people wanted to participate, it became clear that it made more sense to spread them out over a week and I am sure more will want to join. This post will stay sticky for the next week so you can find it easily until the project is completed.
