http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sands%20of%20Time/185/191/22

 1 Sands Palace

This Beautifully landscaped sim is Home to Majilis Al Jinn.

0927Persia_002

 9 Temple

The name of the sim can be translated as: The Congress (or the seat, the meeting place) of Spirits.
The Jinn are mythical beings of great power that exist somewhere between heaven and earth.

 0927Persia1_001

In western culture they are often thought of as Djinn/Jinni/ Genie, and are often the granters of wishes when found and released. In middle eastern culture, the Jinn are mentioned in the Quran as beings created by Allah, where men were created from clay, the Jinn were created from fire, and just like men, have free will, and the ability to choose to be good or not. The subject of Jinn in Muslim culture is today at least, often taboo, as they are often blamed for causing mischief on earth.

 11 sands of time CLOCK

Majailis Al Jinn is an island reflecting the enchantment and the wonder from tales like 1001 nights, or even modern stories such as ‘Prince of Persia’. Here Western and Far East cultural influences can be found blended in.

SL Destinations: Autumn Equinox

Solstice Tidings One & All!,

This post is about one of our mutually favorite times of the year, Fall.

Alurel 2
September 22-23, marks the Autumn Solstice., It’s the closure of summer, The reap of harvests, Enjoyment of colors on
changing leaves, And preparation of oneself both physically and mentally for the colder months ahead.

 Alurel 1

This change is celebrated by many different cultures all over the world in several ways.
In the U.K. for example where Revan is from, People visit the World Famous site called Stonehedge.

Henge 2
Stonehenge is a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England.
It is generally accepted that Stonehenge was an ancient spiritual centre, and many people congregate to welcome the sun and
the new seasons.

Henge 6 0922Solstice_008 Henge 5

Revan and I dressed in manner and explored SL in search for nostalgic & picturesque Fall sims.

Village 2 Alurel 3
The photo’s in this post came from 4 of the sims we enjoyed.LM’s are included below.
**SL’s Stonehedge, A cute little village on a sim called Fable, A gorgeous sim called the Kingdom of Alurel, and We had
a ball dancing to Medieval Flutes at The Renaissance Faire Isle.**

I also wrote a small poem about the Event. 🙂

 0922Solstic3_014 0922Solstic3_016

A Season of Mellow has been ushered in.
Like an orchestra, Autumn’s song begins.

Alurel 5
Nature’s Crescendo starts to build
Welcoming her song are those of guild.

0922Solstic2_002
Woodsman, Farmers, Gatherers of like.
Meeting on Meadow, travel by Pike.

Village 1
Some may view this all as a Pagan’s delight,
But it is just respect of impending dark while giving thanks to sunlight.

Alurel 6
Celebratory Feasts, Dancing in Cheer.
It is Autumnal Equinox and finally here.
