The Smile On Your Face

Allison Kraus sings with the breath of an angel. One of my favorite songs she does as a duet with Brad Paisley - Whiskey Lullabye - makes me cry every time I hear it. The Smile on Your Face is another song she sings, and it too invokes emotion, even tears, but that special sort of tears that makes us remember the best moments life offers. Isn't it interesting that the ability to smile affects our humanity in so many incalculable ways every day at the very base of our instincts and even in Second Life, where the face is pixels and the image a persona and at best a replica of ourselves, it still makes all the difference in the world.

It is little wonder then, why we need so badly to create a face that's expressive and a look that is beautiful when we create our Second Life avatar. Face Paint's newest look was inspired by a couple in Second Life who've invested part of their life in the fashion industry - Clif Sharktooth and Hermione Mocha. We LOVE suggestions so thank you! Sunkissed makes it's first appearance in the 55L spotlight this week.

The EMO-tions hair shown here also adds character to my face. Details like that little errant flip of hair gives a bit of insight to anyone who crosses my path. It's playful. It's lighthearted. It's a good representation of the typist. This hair is Anna 2 and follows Anna which was released last year as a lovely ultra short look. I enjoy both, but the Anna 2 is so much more me... Caryn... Karen.

          "It's amazing how you can speak right to my heart          Without saying a word you can light up the dark          Try as I may I could never explain          What I hear when you don't say a thing
          The smile on your face          Lets me know that you need me          There's a truth in your eyes          Saying you'll never leave me          The touch of your hand          Says you'll catch me if ever I fall          You say it best          When you say nothing at all"" - Allison Krauss from The Smile on Your Face                                                                    aka When You Say Nothing at All
