Everyone knows the expression about eyes being the windows to the soul. Not so true in SL, where eyes are eyes; and only words, in text or voice, add a dimension of meaning. Having observed a bit of SL drama of late, it occurred to me to wonder whether, rather than being windows, eyes here are mirrors. Perhaps we see what we want to see: the reflection of our best selves in others. Or sometimes, a reflection of our truest hopes or our greatest fears. Someone perceives an acquaintance to be a new best friend. A pose-ball partner is seen as a soulmate. A predator appears to be a lover. Or a lover appears to be a predator. All those RL skills we’ve spent a lifetime developing — those we like to call ‘intuition’ — forsake us here. Some are deceived and leave. Other press on. All I know is, I can look at myself in the mirror in the morning — in worlds both virtual and real — and feel good about the person looking back at me.
I did lots of shopping this weekend, with stops at the I ❤ Originals Fair, where I picked up the lovely Mood jewelry I’m wearing and at Disco Deals where I got these Gos booties. Fabulous prices on many items at both locations, which inspired me to spend (and spend and spend). Next stop: Inventory Management classes at Builders Brewery!
