The Way of the Sun…possessor of a special magic.  Its fire and light never end, holding true through every turn of the hours in every miraculous place like those of our magical Fairelands.  So many of us have walked the same path, whether or not we’ve shared that truth with each other.  But what we do all share so fully is the same passion, the same resolve, the same spirited focus.

These gorgeous Fairelands remain open until Thursday (although special events have ended; yet the RFL vendors, shopping, and the sims remain active and beckon).  The formal programming closed on a high note of record level relaying:  more than 8.5 million lindens raised, the equivalent of more than $32,000 USD.  This moves me to tears still.  As does everyone’s incredible heart.  Thank you dear Fairelands organizers, builders, creators, coordinators, designers, writers, performers.  Thank you thank you thank you for creating form to our community’s shared passion and providing such magic for all of us to romp purposefully, playfully, and determinedly within.

The Way of the Sun…we shine on through every hour.  Through every turn of season. Brightly so, ye fellow Fairelanders.   Brightly so.

We stand defiant as One, for this fight is not yet done.  The Sun has not yet set.  Its magic still embraces the lands, caresses our hearts and souls.  And ever will.

Three more days of these Fairelands, before they merge into the mists.  Three more days, followed then by the Next Day and Nights…forever more.  Ye Fairelanders One.  Ye Fairelanders All.  Ye Fairelanders Ever So.

Day 11…when the Fairelands go the way of the Sun.  But the Sun’s magic works in mysterious ways, lighting these glorious lands, with their passionate community, and the most noble of causes…holding Everything to shine in the fullness of light.

Faireland programming concludes today but this glorious land stays wrapped in the Sun’s beams for another four days.  What say ye then…throughout the day and the next four, keep ringing those RFL vendors while reveling in our home of the Fairelands.  Feel the magic so very real here.  So very real in the hearts of everyone you encounter.

Total lindens raised, as of this writing, in the fight to defeat cancer:  over 6.8 million, the equivalent of more than $28,000 USD.  Coming up soon today the live auction at 3 pm SLT, then the April Showers Ball from 6-8 SLT, both in the Opal Flight sim.  And always everywhere…such magnificent heart.

Yeah.  That’s right.  I’m a Dinkie.  An D’Orc to be precise.  Don’t even get me started on how much I love this look.  And the gesture:  “FOR THE HORDE!”  But in this case, everything about the Fantasy Faire is For the Cure!  As of this writing, Day 10, more than 6.5 million lindens have been raised in the Fairelands; that’s more than $25,000 USD! Just today and tomorrow remain for this year’s glorious Fantasy Faire.  Let’s make every second count.  For Love.  For Hope.  For Magic.  For the Cure.

I’m racing between posts.  I’m also chomping at the bit to race back into the Fairelands.  So much so I’ll keep my words brief here.  Nearly twitter-esque but positively brimming over with the great authenticity of love in this community, in all of us.

The Fight wages on, dear Fairelanders.  Keep lighting the way to triumph!
