We have arrived at the Midsummer of the Fairelands.  It never ceases to amaze how fast time flies during this event…on the wings of such tremendous community and commitment.  As I post this, it’s actually the start of Day 6!  And at this writing, total lindens raised are just over 3.9 million Lindens!  We’re well on our way to finishing this out in grand glorious triumph.  See you in the Fairelands early and often!

We find ourselves nearing the Midsummer’s Eve of the Faire, now that just a bit over a third of this spectacular happening has, well, happened.  And spectacularly so!   As is always the case, all of the wonderful souls in this incredible community continue to spread our wings together with one focus, one purpose:  to eradicate cancer once and for all.  And we continue to make a huge impact.  As of this writing, just over 3.2 million lindens have been raised (more than $12,000 USD) and 7 days still remain.  So what can we accomplish together in 7 days?  Why…Life itself, wonderful wonderful Life.  Continue to spread your wings and fly onward Fellow Fairelanders.  Ring those Bells of Hope resoundingly into Life.  Slurls and details after the pics.

Sometimes we could all use just a little help from a friend.  Fantasy Faire brings out the fellowship and camaraderie like no other inworld event, rivaling a great many atomic world events as well.  Beautiful creations and sims and souls to discover during these days of the Faire.  All leading to pathways for what we all hope will be the most incredible discovery of all:  a cure for cancer.    Words here are short; the urgency to eradicate cancer, high.  Into the Fairelands, ye wonderful souls.  See you there!

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!

“The battle is now,” Sage spoke rapidly.  

“The way out is Through,” she said and in one swift movement, lifted the toaster onto her shoulder, rallied the other small creatures into extreme readiness, then looked with sharp evaluation at her friend who still knelt…living perhaps a bit too long there.

“The way out is through…and Up,” the flower seemed to add, stretching itself imperceptibly but enough for eyes to see.  Bloom’n blinked.  Once, then twice, then three times.  As if to clear her ears to hear the beautiful plant all the way down through to its roots and back up again, a journey which she was now convinced extended to the Heavens and the Wisest of Eternals.  As if in search of Galaxies, she studied each innocent yet ancient white-pink petal.  Then feeling her friend’s determined energy, Bloom’n looked up and met Sage’s eyes.

“We climb,”  Sage resolutely said.  Her eyes sparkled now.  “We cast off the skeletons of fear, remnants long overdue to be left behind.”

She extended her hand and firmly took Bloom’n’s hand.  

“We climb together,” Sage breathed.  “We climb all of us as one.  We climb now.”

ANANSI

Anansi (Beq Janus/Polysail) – Worldling Cradle

Because for every end there must be a beginning…  Once upon a time there were no Fairelands, no faires, a no stories to be told. It is said that the trickster god Anansi, stole the seeds of creativity from the sky gods, nurturing them into life, giving birth to the fairelands, casting them to the void winds as he flees the wrathful gods.  But such tales are for children aren’t they? …

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.
