Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that as well. ~ Anonymous
The above quote is not quite true. Butterflies physically *can* see their wings but whether they realize the beauty of what they are seeing is another thing. I kind of imagine creators in SL are the same way, including Squinternet Larnia. They may see the beautiful thing they create but not understand that once they set it out for sale, out to fly as it were, they have no idea what impact it may have on others. It might be a dress that is worn the day a woman invites her best friend to visit in her in RL or a suit a man wore the first time he met the love of his life.
The Love Donna Flora event is not just a charity event but a genuine outpouring of fond sentiment about the creations that Squinternet Larnia has made. Doubtless Squinternet doesn’t realize the impact her creations have had on people or the grid. The Love Donna Flora event is a chance for her to find out.
Two creators sent me items early. First there is this gorgeous dress from Eleseren Brianna, one of three she is offering at the Love Donna Flora event. With its beautiful lace decollatage and deep cut back, the salmon-colored satin and tulle sleeves make this a dream of a dress.
The blogger Isabelli Anatine made lovely butterfly posing props for Love Donna Flora as well (the inspiration for this blog). In three different scenes, a woman holds butterflies, watching them fly and admiring their beauty. Could the possibly know how much joy they bring to the world? Never.
We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty. ~ Maya Angelou
