The-Way-of-the-Sun-side

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.

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.

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!
