I’d smile and say you were a friend of mine

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.

Odyssey – by Alia Baroque

‘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!

Sweet Silent Thought

Sweet Silent Thought - I

‘When to the sessions of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time’s waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in death’s dateless night,
And weep afresh love’s long since cancelled woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanished sight.
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o’er
The sad account of fore-bemoanèd moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end’

~ William Shakespeare – Sonnet 30
