Grandpa, please tell me about the war?’
‘Oh no, Cato, maybe when you are a bit older’
But Grandpa, I am almost 45…surely I am old enough!’
‘No, Cato. Now let me sleep and don’t forget to fly the flag half mast tomorrow’
I will, Grandpa, I will. Sleep well and sweet dreams

Sleep well. And sweet dreams.

He didn’t wake up anymore, he was tired. It was good.

The flag will be half mast, tomorrow on the 4th of May. As it does every year. For Grandpa, for his brothers and sisters, his friends, and all those heroes who lost their lives for my, and your, freedom.

As the Fantasy Faire will close soon, later today – or perhaps they will stay materialised a bit longer as has happened before! – this will be my last blogpost about this years amazing experience.

Fantasy Faire 2016 - In the deep waters of OtherWorld

I’ve enjoyed the exploring, taking pictures, the parties, the Quest, the literary Festival, meeting people, shopping and trying to make videos of all the wonderful things I have seen.

Admitting I have not blogged as much as I had planned, but then…Real Life happened and if anything….. I can tell you it was a blessing and a joy to log in to the Fantasy Faire after a day of sitting in a hospital waiting room.
Yes, this years Fantasy Faire was more than ever a reminder to me why ‘Relay for Life‘ is so damn important. It hit closer to home than I wished it would.

My thanks go out to all of you visiting, shopping (and thus donating), the creators and sim designers, the lovely people in the group chats, the photographers, the party-people, the artists, the organisation….well, all of you!

I will miss the Fairelands, till they will appear back again in 2017….but untill then, I have made this video, The Fantasy Faire 2016 in 4 minutes, as a memory and to look back at. I hope you enjoy it too.

OtherWorld, the bright and mysterious land created and sponsored by Elicio Ember – Cerridwen’s Cauldron, is the home of the Literary Festival of the Fantasy Faire.

Last night I attended the “Sounds of Poems”, a wonderful way to explore the place – zooming with my camera – while listening to several writers who read their, or other peoples, poems. I has something calming and relaxing, and I recommend you give it a try if you haven’t already!

Since this Literary Festival is mainly readings done in voice, I made a short video – with sound! – as to give you a short impression. The readers are, in order of appearance, Adele Ward, Jolie Carter, Huckleberry Hax, and Sabreman Carter.

Fantasy Faire 2016

Sometimes it is good to be a bit clumsy! This afternoon I was admiring the wonderful artwork and Gallery in Sapphire Mirror Lake, the arts and entertainment sim, when I tripped over a rock (and lost a new shoe!) and fell in the water.

Fantasy Faire 2016 Sapphire Mirror Lake - II - Blogpost!

As I was trying to attach my shoe back, I ended up on the bottom of the lake. It is a good thing my mesh hair and new outfit are waterproof and once I got my shoe back on I realised I was lucky to have fallen ……Under the surface of this epic lake is a whole other world.  And another gallery with artworks!

Fantasy Faire 2016 - Underwater gallery @Sapphire Mirror Lake

Of course, normal – not clumsy – visitors will use the official entrance, but hey hoo…I thought I was pretty lucky to discover all the underwater-goodness and better: my camera still worked and I was able to make a video of…

Most of my online time I now spend on the Fairelands, enjoying the scenery, the parties and…looking at visitors strolling by, also referred to as ‘Faire Folk’. A huge diversity in looks and outfits, humans, elves, dwarfins and….dragons!

I managed to catch some on tape, as you know Dragons are really shy and they usually fly away when they see a camera!

If you haven’t been to the Fantasy Faire yet, you should! Go on…and enjoy!
