Fantasy Faire…

Snapshot_018

When the Sun also sets, we hold to the knowledge that it will rise again.

It’s so difficult to imagine that this is the very last day of the Fantasy Faire.  How it comes and goes at breathtaking speeds.  But the constant is the amazing generosity and caring.  Imagine a record-breaking tally of 8 million lindens after yesterday’s Live Auction.  And still I have no doubt that the total continues to grow and will do so until the very last hour.

I’m in awe of this Tribe.

I thought I could say something eloquent but in all honesty, no matter how I try to put the words together, they just don’t come close to reflecting the incredible heart and soul of this group.  All I can say to all the Faire organizers, artists, creatives, participants, everyone who brings this amazing amazing event to us every year, well, all I can say is a genuinely heartfelt Thank You.  Thank You.  Thank You.

So very much…

One more day of the Fairelands.  How does it always go so fast?  Because it’s so magical and wonderful, the heart and soul, the commitment and generosity, the unity of all in one shared noble purpose.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  I’m sitting quietly now in the Valley of IshNar (a spectacularly gorgeous build) among many of the amazing organizers and creators of the Faire, watching as they prepare the stage for the Live Auction.  There are all kinds of folks and all kinds of cultures here.  And all of one mind and heart in our purpose.  It’s so transparent.  There’s nothing hidden about this level of caring and commitment.

This just in live report from the Live Auction:  the Valley of IshNar currently holds 101 avies at once and without a hiccup whatsoever!  And somewhere in the day today the total lindens raised rounded the 7 million lindens corner (apparently after several Tinies were jailed for running amok naked! laughing).  And it’s still powering strong through the Live Auction (somewhere around 300,000 Lindens raised so far in the Live Auction alone!).  Seriously…WHOA…this community and world, wow, so amazing!!

One more day of the Fairelands but total and endless amazement and appreciation for everyone involved.  God and the Universe and Gaia and the Worlds bless you and thank you all.  YOU ALL ROCK!!!!

A mad dash web post before another mad dash through the Fairelands…before the Sun begins to set on this always amazing, always magical gathering of incredible, incredible souls.  The auctions are yet to come, the Tinies keep imprisoning folk and raising bails the likes of which haven’t been seen before.

It just brings me to tears.  The love that’s here…in everyone, united in one purpose.  One more day before the Faire goes the way of the Sun.  One more day to storm the grounds to advance a cure.  One more day until next year and every day forward into victory.  Hit those slurls all you amazing people.  Right here.  Right now.

This is the big push, the final weekend for the Fantasy Faire (if I have this correct…one can always hope it will be extended!).  I’m inworld now at the Valley of IshNar, where I understand some issues with the hunt are being worked out…because those leading the Fantasy Faire tribe are so incredibly wonderful.  I include all of us in that Tribe too.  We all do our parts from admiring the creativity of this effort to breathing such beauty into its heart and soul with every visit, every writeup, every purchase.  Looking at the RFL vendor, today’s tally is in the 6,230,000 Linden neighborhood.  There is such magic everywhere here.  Come hop on any of the 10 Fantasy Faire slurls and bring such glorious life to that magic even more.  Fashion details follow, with 100% of the proceeds from RFL items going to the fight to banish cancer.

According to the Fantasy Faire weblog (url above), Wednesday brought the total raised so far to 5,702,323 linden…or somewhere in the neighborhood of $23,000 USD.

Whoa.

Seriously.

I’m in awe.  And even *more* motivated to continue to hit those RFL vendors, or help release any of the wonderful souls imprisoned by the tinies for various reasons (with the lindens for their bail going to RFL), or auctioning on any of the gorgeous creations (with all lindens going to RFL).  There are tons of ways to make a difference with this Fantasy Faire…but you all know this…look at what you’re doing!  I said it before and I’ll say it again:  YOU GO, WORLD!  Hit those slurls and those RFL vendors!  See you in the Fairelands.  Let’s plunge on in for the big push to eradicate cancer.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this wonderful avie goes to the fight to eradicate cancer:

  • Evensong Sim.  Outfit (mesh skirt and poncho):  Sinan Kirtle from Nenya Eun of Sa-eela
  • Titans Hollow Sim.  Skin:  Fade Iced from Selos Dae of TRAP
  • Lotus Valley Dream Sim.  Giant Within:  The Magician from Starman Heron of Star Journey.  SL is a place where we bring to life our Giants Within.  Star Journey focuses on this and facilitates personal insights and inspiration through the use of Interactive Symbols, like their RFL offering “The Magician.”  Here’s how the Magician in you is described:  Within you are strengths and abilities that may surprise even you. The Magician is the symbol in Star Journey that describes inner qualities of being adept and ingenious. They may appear to you as simple, everyday acts, like how you cook, how you drive, how you give a friend guidance or support, or how you love. Others recognize your ease in doing these things. They are touched and inspired. Tap into the parts of you that express your own magic, your uniqueness. This enriches others and helps guide you forward.  Star Journey’s approach is based on Richard Geer’s latest book: “Star Journey – A Cosmology of Self.”

Fashion info for item that is not a RFL vendor item:

  • Hair:  Up In The Hair – Rouge from MissAllSunday Lemon of Wasabi Pills (Wasabi is at the Faire in the Magnificat Sim)

Part of the great joy I get from having the honor of being included as an official Fantasy Faire writer each year is the surprise of the stores I’m assigned to cover.   It’s very in keeping with the surprise and magic of the entire event, where countless persons from all cultures come together, with hearts and minds united in one purpose:  to storm all the gorgeous and amazing 10 sims of the Fairelands and outdo each year’s effort by raising stunning amounts of funds in such a truly short period of time, all with the intent to banish cancer.  How about that sentence.  What can I say…it’s from the heart.  And so is this:  Ring those bells.  Hit the slurls, find those gorgeous RFL vendor offerings and ring those bells loud and long.
