About Homes For Our Troops
HFOT builds homes as a departure point for Veterans to rebuild their lives, and once again become highly productive members of society. Despite their life-altering injuries, many Veterans have embarked on new careers, completed their college degrees, or started families. Empowered by the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings, these Veterans can now focus on their recovery and return to their life’s work of serving others. Many have embraced their roles as motivational speakers, sharing their messages of persevering through tragedy with groups and classrooms around the country; others take to a national platform to promote awareness of veteran suicide, homelessness and PTSD. Their incredible stories are the driving force for the work for HFOT.

BURN 2 Conception 2017!

BURN2 Conception: “Take a Look Inside”

July 14-16, 2017

The Beginning of “The Welcome” to a Visitor

How do we convey the need to be a Community?  An Invitation, we invite someone inside.

We invite the visitor into our home and make them feel welcome. Offer them Comfort, Laughter, and Sincerity. The community grows as we come together in our common areas. Think of the Piazzas of Italy, the gathering of the community on a daily basis, bonding, sharing stories, laughter and sharing time.

Building outside the box,

by building inside the box!

Your build inside the box is sharing your invitation, sharing YOU. The spaces outside the box we share “ALL of US”, in lively community, our Ten Principles in action.

We will work together as a community making the Visitor more important than the box. All boxes are the same except for the Silhouette you choose to show.

We invite artists and builders to come and fill the boxes on the playa with the amazing variety of delightful creations, all of your different interpretations on the theme of welcoming the visitor. DJs and live performers will be able to sign up to play on the stage, and Greeters are getting ready to welcome you to the event. And, as always, we will have the Burns to watch together! Interested in being a part of this, helping in planning? Contact Event Lead Daark Gothly inworld.

 Bloggers and sharers of BURN2 news! Please share this news as much as you can! If you need larger size images to share this with others, contact iSkye Silverweb inworld.

Black and White Women in Second Life | Inara Pey: Living in a Modem World

Now open at Nitroglobus Roof Gallery, curated by Dido Haas, is Black and White Women, and exhibition of photography by Christower Dae.“Chris likes to explore, experiment, is curious and loves making pictures. Photography for Chris is immortalizing avatars in ambiguous attitudes,” Dido states in the liner notes for the exhibition. “His dedication to the avatar portraits, to the capture of those expressions that a skin can offer by giving (according to many people) a soul to the avatar and its personality begins.”

The result is a series of stunning avatar portraits presented in black and white, focusing on the female face. Presented in the familiar large format for Nitroglobus. However, these are no ordinary portraits. Each offers a considered, unique moment in time captured in the life of each subject; that all are presented in black and white services to heighten the beauty within it.

Each of the images is perfectly framed to offer a story; what that story might be is left entirely up to us: there are no visual clues within the pictures themselves; those which do offer any background do so in soft focus, ensuring attention remains on the face before us. Shown in close up, every detail of each face is presented to us: the brush of freckles across a cheek, the reflection of light within an eye, the spread of eyelashes, the fullness of lip – all are beautifully captured and rendered.

I’ve seen many images of avatars in Second Life, both through exhibitions and via Flickr, but Black and White Women is one of the more remarkable sets of such studies I’ve seen. The natural cast to each is – to repeat myself – genuinely unique. This is an eye-catching exhibition, one I recommend visiting.
