Day 7 ~ Galadriel (Tolkien Day)

Day-7-Tolkien-face

Today the Fairelands celebrate J. R. R. Tolkien and his wildly absurd talents.  (The Hobbit was originally published in 1937 (!) and LOTR originally published in 1954 (!)

Let that sink in.  Wild-mad brilliance for the Ages, just like all of his characters – yet for me the one I’ve chosen to convey today is one of the most fair of any throughout all of Tolkien’s incredible lands.

Galadriel is her name and so aptly named.  As it turns out, the name “Galadriel,” Tolkien’s most beautiful of the Noble Elves, carries a meaning just as glorious:   “maiden crowned with a radiant garland” in Sindarin. Galadriel was a Noldorin elf princess renowned for her beauty and wisdom in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novels. The elements are galad “radiant” and riel “garlanded maiden”.  Alatáriel is the Quenya form of her name.”  (This from a neat site “Behind the Name:  Tolkien’s Characters” ).

She was fairly magical, Galadriel.  Likely one of the Eagles.  Always Present.  Always of Light and Courage and Love…just like everyone in these Fairelands.

On this day, in honor of that masterful worlds creator, get your Tolkien on:  be it dragon, hobbit, Ent, Elf, Wizard, Orc, dwarf, or any of the magnificent beings bringing his works to life.  Just like we all bring the Fairelands to life in Fellowship, each and every year.  Fly thee now!  Fly thee high and true!  Be Here Now in grand Fellowship of these glorious Fairelands and our quest to eradicate cancer from all worlds!

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!

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!

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.
