Fantasy Faire Day 7: Tolkien Day

 'Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.'
Celebrating the publication of The Hobbit, the Fairelands turn to the Hill,  an homage to Tolkien's works and specifically to the Hobbits themselves, for inspiration and celebration.

With readings, unexpected parties and literature challenges based on Tolkien's books, there was something for every Tolkien fan. I took part in the Litfest writer's workshop held at the Hill, where we toured the countryside seeking inspiration and then joined the party that was taking place on the green. I later returned to listen to the readers from the Seanchai Library, who presented selections from the Lord of the Rings.

Many folks dressed as their favorite Tolkien character, which meant numerous Legolases...Legolii...? as well as elves, fae, demons and even a fallen god or two, but many appeared just as they always look in SL. We can all relate to those unwilling heroes in the books.

There is a bit of a hero in each of us, at least, we aspire to that ideal. Many heroes this week have donated their time, talents and L$ to Relay For Life. We passed the L$3 million mark early Wednesday.
