Time flies, even under the watchful, loving eyes of the Fairelanders.  As of this writing (the early part of Day 7, as it happens), total lindens raised hovers near the 4.5 million level.  That’s over $17,000 USD.

Four days remain before the Fairelands fade back into the mist for the year.  Four days to wade into this wonderful community, these wonderful places.  Four days to continue to make every second count in powerfully meaningful ways.  Be Here Now.

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!

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!

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.

Day 8 ~ The Climb

Kneeling proved to be a blessing in disguise.    

Bloom’n bent a knee on the long dark path and quietly landed her kneecap before the single flower — a survivor, this spirit, who represented so very much.  Standing upright and tall, bright and hopeful in the midst of the surrounding heaviness.  In search of a Sun even though there was no Sun to be seen anywhere.  At least, not yet.  But Hope is always present, Bloom’n thought.  Even the flower seemed to know this.

She stole time for a moment and breathed softly, tasting the edges of encouragement along the plant’s sweet fragrance. Feathering each petal now with her fingertips, she opened her senses even wider, then plunged her spirit deeply into another space and another time.  It was then that she could have sworn she heard the flower speak.  Then, that the plant seemed to call forth whispers from that distant place and time, whispers that urged, “Climb!”

And then, that the present suddenly yanked Bloom’n rudely back to its reality.  The toaster shuddered noticeably, making fireworks of breadcrumbs.  

“…for our return…” the little metal creature explained without being asked, then continued to shudder as in the grips of hypothermia.

Sage smiled as always, but now a grimness tinged the corners of her mouth.  She turned from the little metal creature to survey a trail suddenly blazed by the Were, the Giant Barbarian, and the kittens now morphing into Fierce Lions and Bangle Tigers.  That battle-eager cohort raced forward with abandon, clearly On The Hunt.  Yards, nearly miles ahead it seemed for they travelled so fast, they called back to Sage and the others — the Were and the Giant Barbarian, the Lions with their roars, the Tigers with their snarls called back and urged with fierce instruction:  “Climb!”

“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.”
