Dearest Phantom,

Once upon a time, you said something to me that I have never forgotten. I was confused and baffled about how emotionally invested people could become over things that happened in a virtual world, and you said to me: "Darling, people get weird and self obsessed online."

An excellent lesson, and one I always remember.

With love,

The Face Behind the Mask of The Nightingale

Paper faces on parade
Hide your face,

in an inhuman race

Eye of gold
Thigh of blue
True is false

Curl of lip
Swirl of gown
Ace of hearts
Face of clown

Drink it in, drink it up,

I told him that, as strange as it might seem, I was not shocked in the least about the growth and changes. It just all felt so *right*. Like everything was happening exactly as it was supposed to. We then joked about how different RR would be in another 6 months. He said he could not imagine it....and I said I totally could.

That is how this whole journey has been. It feels so natural to me, like this was always …

Radio Riel, Riel Events and The Caledon Library are proud to announce that they have received a grant from the Foundation For Rich Content to produce a special project, entitled "SL Shakespeare Summer".

During June, July and August the three project sponsors will hold a week of events focused on a Shakespeare play. At the beginning of each week, The Caledon Library will hold a play discussion. Throughout the week, Radio Riel will provide programming inspired by the play or related to Shakespeare and his works in general.

The last day of the week, Saturday, Radio Riel and Riel Events will hold a themed, two-hour Ball in a setting recreated from the play. Music at the Ball will be primarily Classical, with some Early,Celtic, Folk and Shakespeare-themed music. The week should leave people with an understanding of the play and Shakespeare, and enable people to truly experience the play in a unique way.

The SL Shakespeare …
