Love Donna Flora opened yesterday, and it was good to see so many designers contribute to a worthy cause. I don’t really have any deep thoughts or magical quotes to paste, just a couple of images that I have been working on while ruminating about the event.
If you click on the link in the paragraph above, you’ll find stories of how Squinternet Larnia’s creative passion has touched residents over the years. Uplifting stories of strength, courage and friendship.
I have not had the pleasure of visiting Donna Flora but that will soon change. Going through her Flickr stream earlier today for some inspiration, walking through the event itself, the theme that kept coming up over and over again, was that of Love.
Since I’ve started blogging, I have come to look at Second Life content creation in a whole new light in that when you (the creator), as a virtual designer or model or builder ‘make’ something, you give to us and the world in general, a piece of you, a piece of your heart so to speak.
Where or what you draw inspiration from coupled with the determination to see your vision to fruition is almost like a snapshot into your soul. Even though I still feel somewhat like an outsider peeking in, I see the camaraderie and support you all give each other IN SPITE of the negativism and it helps to shift my perspective.
And that to me is like a beacon of light, for those of us who still believe that Second Life, and I’ve said this before, that this virtual platform of ideas, creation and community is still thriving and continues to remain vibrant and relevant.
When the call goes out, it is encouraging to know, that the community responds and rallies behind one of their own. Whatever we can do to help spread the message, lets do it wholeheartedly so that when future/potential residents think of Second Life, they know there are residents who genuinely care.
Please take some time to visit the Love Donna Flora website and read the testimonials/stories. They will encourage you :) Then set aside your coffee (or whatever) money for the week like I did and support by giving a donation while investing in your wardrobe…
Many of the designers have placed their vendors at 100% donation so be sure to visit the region today, and thank you for stopping by~
