Do you read a lot of SL profiles? I didn’t when I first came to SL, but the longer I’ve been here, the more I’m inclined to check out someone’s profile — whether it’s to look at a particularly stylish avatar’s picks, or to just to find out who someone is. I attended an event this evening and found myself doing a great deal of profile reading and was both impressed and astonished by the openness with which many describe their SL personae. Mine is pretty boring; I figured I reveal way more of myself here than I ever could cram into a few profile pages so I just provide a link and say, hey, if you want to know about me, go read my blog. And even here, I’m somewhat circumspect. Not so, many of the folks I checked out. (In fact, sometimes you risk learning waaaaayyyy more about someone than you ever wanted to and have to slam that profile shut before it hurts your eyes or your mind.) But what I saw lot of was passion. People are passionate about their relationships, their occupations, their hobbies, and even their pixel pets. For people who spend lots and lots of time typing on a keyboard and staring at a screen, we are quite a passionate bunch. And despite the drama and the craziness that passion might generate, well, I think on the whole it’s a wonderful thing. It’s passion that makes the colors so rich here. It’s passion that makes the air shimmer so brightly here. It’s passion that keeps those SL stars and that glorious SL sun forever shining in a beautiful blue SL sky.
This week’s color for Luna Jubilee’s 52 Weeks of Color Challenge is ruby. That deep rich red that is the color of passion. I thought I’d wear a gorgeous gown, or perhaps cover myself in dozens and dozens of ruby-red roses for this week’s picture, but somehow this sweet simple look expressed it best for me today.
