Why Do I Do It? -- Featuring !Lyrical B!zarre Templates!

Your checkbook reflects and reveals your heart. I know it's not a common term these days, the use of the word checkbook, but the concept isn't foreign. Where we spend money reveals a lot about what we think and feel to be important. In the case of Second Life, this really still has credence. It may be pennies on the dollar for the actual cost of something, however, it is real dollars, euros, yen, francs and rubles. How much would your transaction history tell the world about you? Do you invest in accessories for your avi? Pay a monthly fee to belong to a specific group? Donate to charities? Tip a singer, hostess, or dancer? Or perhaps pay for skills such as foreign language classes, photography classes or modeling classes? Each decision reflects a great deal about where our hearts, our impulse and passion find truth. We spend those increments of money because this thing or that matter.
Another way to determine what's of value to someone, probably another easy measurable method, is to calculate where they spend their time. Some people come in to a virtual world to relax after a long day at work, while others work in a virtual world to create money to exist in the world away from it. If you followed someone's timeline, you'd get data of a different sort than financial, but you'd still learn a great deal about that person.I devote a lot of time to 'work' for the fashion world. People ask me from time to time if I get paid for what I do. I do not. I receive the reward of the item of clothing when someone entrusts me with their design as a part of a greater marketing strategy for their thing, whatever that thing is, and I find that because I do what I do and I do it a lot and with great energy and time devoted, it encourages new designers to offer the same trust, and my viewpoint - the name of my blog - Caryn Ashdene's Viewpoint, became a viewpoint that touched a lot of people over time.
I LOVE THIS!! It's why I do it. I love the chance to have a voice, to touch the world, to show a beautiful something, but also to share a bit of me in millions of ways. Text, words, narrated stories, letters, all these things are created to reach and touch the world. I use this medium. Others write comic books or thriller novels. There's a reason. I embrace people like Lyrical Bizarre - Loredana Alexandra - and places like Lyrical B!zarre Templates, this new dress Curl from The Instruments The event, and I embrace to some degree all of the customers or potential first time visitors because I write about her, what she does, what she creates from week to week. It's a conversation to me. I want you to know that the Curl dress shows her creativity, pieces of mesh she makes herself, and that the pieces she makes look and feel worth the investment from one viewpoint, mine. (I took this photo at an old favorite haunt of mine, Toby's Jukebox. It's a blues based club found here:
