The-Way-of-the-Sun

The Way of the Sun…possessor of a special magic.  Its fire and light never end, holding true through every turn of the hours.  Even when we can’t see it, the Sun shines and rises anew, and always forever in our hearts and souls.

These glorious Fairelands remain open until May 7th (although special events have ended; yet the RFL vendors, shopping, and the sims remain active and do so beckon). So far, the formal programming continues to close on an astonishing note.  By the end of Day 11, over 10 million lindens have been raised, the equivalent of $42,000 USD!!!

Wow…seriously, wow…

I have no idea how the World Creators, how all the many who toil and give form and shape to these Fairelands pull off such an amazing experience year after year…and topping themselves each time, no less.  There’s such incredible heart etched into all of this and with such loving care.  I thank you dear Fairelands organizers, builders, creators, coordinators, designers, writers, performers.  Thank you thank you thank you for creating such magnificent substance for our community’s shared passion and for providing such magic for all of us to bring the life of the Sun into.

The Way of the Sun…we shine on always, brightly so, ye fellow warrior Stars. Ever brightly so, dear Fairelanders.

Just a Mer Queen out of water.  (Also, I’m wearing a King’s Crown.  Think Neptune will notice?)

While dashing in haste (it’s called “escape”!) to the Halls of Story, I swung through the mysterious land of Severina.  There’s magic everywhere here, in all of these 15 glorious sims.  So swipe a King’s Crown, make some noise, cause a ruckus, make some mischief and lots and lots of magic, and swarm the Fairelands for the next 8 or so remaining days.  There’s so very much to see and do as we fight this most noble of fights:  defeating cancer.  (Also if you love Celtic, mystical music listen to Fantasy Faire Radio on your browser or inworld — and in between the many wonderful DJ sets).

I find myself saying the same thing year after year:  this year’s Fantasy Faire is *incredible.*  Most noteworthy is this message from the amazing Fairelanders’ founders-organizers-all-around magic makers:

We are delighted and proud beyond words to announce a historic moment, not just for Fantasy Faire, but for Relay for Life as a whole and for the American Cancer Society.  For the first time in its 32-year history, a Relay for Life team is channeling its fundraising to one specific ACS project:  building a Hope Lodge in Kenya, where cancer survivors and their caregivers can stay for free while undergoing their treatments at facilities that are far from their homes.   

Full details here:  Hope Lodge for Kenya and SL Fantasy Faire

That the American Cancer Society reached out to Fantasy Faire to pilot this effort is wonderful testament to the truly profound impact made by Second Life and its Fairelanders.  The Hope Lodge for Kenya focus and all the artistry and community in the Fairelands makes this year’s happenings bigger, bolder, more beautiful than ever.  If you haven’t yet been, make sure to Be Here.  If you’ve already been, Be Here Again.  As is the true spirit of this wonderful community, Be Here Always.

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-Magic-landscape

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.
