Bodies naked and ablaze

Roslin Petion of Fleur

"I'm shy," exclaimed my seventh guest star, Roslin Petion; but she was still kind enough to let me in to her workshop high above the beautiful sim of Fleur. Roslin is the skin designer of Fleur (formerly Tete a Pied), and she's wearing her current favorite skin, Shoujo Lotus 2.

She's got a lovely shape, and I neglected to ask her anything about it because I was distracted. Her skin really does glow, and it's weird, because I own that skin too and it doesn't look the same on me at all. Here she is, beautifully naked, and I'm reminded of Robert Graves:

Lovers without reproach will gaze
On bodies naked and ablaze ...

Here's where I have to pause and wonder about Second Life. Two people can have the same skin and hair (like myself and my pal Pip the other day) and look totally different. Shape has something to do with it, obviously. More important than this, however, is personality.

It's all about how you move...and speak. The clothes you wear (or don't wear), your animation override, and more than all of that ... what you do with your life, or Second Life.

Oddly enough, I think that Second Life is the perfect container for your brain. Why is Roslin glowing? You can see her brain beyond that avatar, beyond that skin, beyond the two-dimensions of a screencap.

Too bad you can't make an "intelligence" attachment.
