eyes are the window to the soul

And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace I’m going through

- “Changes” David Bowie

Remember The Man Who Fell To Earth? That 1976 movie where David Bowie played the protagonist — an alien from a dying planet? Remember the scene where he removed his contacts — the contacts he needed not to be blinded by the earth’s unfamiliar electromagnetic spectrum?

That scene creeps me out to this day.

What does that have to do with anything? Not much really, but my eyes aren’t working for me. Right – the eyes that came with the free Vampire Female Jayde av from Linden Lab. They just look so… I don’t know… orange and rheumy. Who wants to go through life with jaundiced looking eyes?

In SL, you get to change your eyes at will. Match your eyes to your shoes — why not? So I went on the lookout (oh no you di-int) for new eyes. Tried several pairs, brown, blue, green, but seemingly no changes. What the heck?

Then I discovered – this vampire female starter av (which is still most of what I am) came with objects that are worn over the eyes. Contacts of sorts. Huh. Learn something new every day. As if there is anything but a perfect 25 year old body in SL — why would I need contacts? I guess they must glow in the dark or something. After pulling the wool from my eyes, I felt much better.

Here I am sporting Bad@zz Eyes – Blue – Lighter Shade Iris/Large Size Iris. Ahhhhh.
