Once the Fantasy Faire is back inworld, magically materialised – well and due to hard work from all the creators, landscapers, builders and organisation – the first stop for me is always the Fairelands Junctions.
Not only because that is where you find the portals to all the locations, but also because it is where the Wall of Rememberance is located.
A beautiful monument, with candles, this year placed on a small island. A place to sit for a moment and…well, remember.
After all, the Fantasy Faire is a Relay for Life in SL event and I have this short ritual of spending some time at the Wall of Remberance before I dive in the parties, the shopping and exploring.
Nothing sad, nothing depressing, but a few moments of reflection, remembering and love.
‘And oh when I’m old and wise
Bitter words mean little to me
Autumn winds will blow right through me
And someday in the mist of time
When they asked me if I knew you
I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine
And the sadness would be lifted from my eyes
Oh when I’m old and wise’
– Alan Parsons Project – Old and Wise
Have a great Faire everyone!
