The-Way-of-the-Sun

The Way of the Sun…possessor of a special magic.  Its fire and light never end, holding true through every turn of the hours.  Even when we can’t see it, the Sun shines and rises anew, and always forever in our hearts and souls.

These glorious Fairelands remain open until May 7th (although special events have ended; yet the RFL vendors, shopping, and the sims remain active and do so beckon). So far, the formal programming continues to close on an astonishing note.  By the end of Day 11, over 10 million lindens have been raised, the equivalent of $42,000 USD!!!

Wow…seriously, wow…

I have no idea how the World Creators, how all the many who toil and give form and shape to these Fairelands pull off such an amazing experience year after year…and topping themselves each time, no less.  There’s such incredible heart etched into all of this and with such loving care.  I thank you dear Fairelands organizers, builders, creators, coordinators, designers, writers, performers.  Thank you thank you thank you for creating such magnificent substance for our community’s shared passion and for providing such magic for all of us to bring the life of the Sun into.

The Way of the Sun…we shine on always, brightly so, ye fellow warrior Stars. Ever brightly so, dear Fairelanders.

Fantasy Faire ~ The Way of the Stars

Fantasy Faire 2016:  FF officials share that the sims remain open Monday and Tuesday and will likely roll back into the mists sometime Wednesday, May 4th.  Be There Now.

FF-The-Way-of-the-Stars2

I don’t even have the words to describe my feelings about this year’s Fantasy Faire.  I really don’t.  It was simply astounding.

Amazing souls.  Amazing tribe.

Somewhere at the end of the utterly incredible event – and I *do mean* incredible – with it’s mindbogglingly — and I *do mean* that as well — incredible Live Auction, this Tribe broke down the barrier to 7 million lindens raised.  (With the Live Auction amounts yet to be reflected into the official count.)  The Fairelanders reached that and honestly, so very much more.  Every single amazing soul has reached into beautiful individual lives in such a compelling, positive way that simply cannot be described. So I won’t even try.

FF-The-Way-of-the-Stars3

I write this just flooded with feelings.  And with knowing that though the Sun sets now and the Stars light upon the mists of the Fairelands, these glorious lands with these amazing generous beings will rise again.  Until it does…truth be told, even when it does…together we will all rise with it and shine on.

Each and every day.

Do you believe in magic?  I do!

I love ColeMarie Soleil’s incredible particle show and was able to catch one today in the beautiful Lucentia sim.  Cole also writes music and sings and includes her music in this show.  On top of her singing and particle magic, Cole also goes through a series of avatar changes and choreography changes.  She pulls it off beautifully and incredibly seamlessly.  Be sure to check out Cole’s next show on Sunday, May 1st 12 noon SLT.  (check the FF weblog calendar for details.) Thank you, Cole, as always for your artistry!  Also check out Cole’s shop “Cole’s Corner” in Lucentia and purchase some wearable particles of your own — especially the RFL item Cole created!
