Thinking of Nora

It had been just over a year and I had just gotten used to the fact that Kim/Galadriel was no longer with us. I had accepted but I would never totally be happy with the loss. Upon returning from a small break from Gemstone I found that we had lost Nora/Wanton.

Deeply stunned and grieving anew for the loss of another good friend and gentle soul that meant so much to me, all I could do is sigh. The true heart breaking thing is that Nora will never get to watch her son grow up, Nor will her son get to know her. I thought about this and found myself tearing up. The tragedy of that is very deep, watching your children grow up is one of the real joys of life.

Nora and I had a lot of fun over the years, either with her character Wanton or with Passion Wantondaughter. She had a great ability to laugh and make others laugh. She was the one who I'd often give items to when I was in a "Lets toss Celtar into the fountain of Youth" mood. Matter of fact dear Wanton still has Celtar's Silver Gryphon forging apron.::chuckle::.

Any how I'd like to wish my deepest condolences to Greg and their son Christopher over this loss to their family. There is a song by the band "Live", called "Lightning Crashes", this song was written about a friend of theirs who lost her life due to complications of child birth, like those that Nora suffered during her pregnancy. Everytime I hear the song on the radio I find myself tearing up. I'll miss you Nora.

~ Jim/Celtar

When the dark wood fell before me.
And all the paths we're overgrown.
When the priests of pride say their is no other way.
I tilled the sorrows of stone.

I did not believe because I could not see.
Though you came to me in the night.
When the dawn seemed forever lost.
You showed me your love in the light of the stars.

Cast your eyes on the ocean.
Cast your soul to the sea.
When the dark night seems endless.
Please remember me.

Then the mountain rose before me.
By the deep well of desire.
From the fountain of forgveness.
Beyond the ice and the fire.

Cast your eyes on the ocean.
Cast your soul to the sea.
When the dark night seems endless.
Please remember me.

Though we share this humble path, alone.
How fragile is the heart.
Oh give these clay fee wings to fly.
To touch the face of the stars.

Breathe life into this feeble heart.
Lift this mortal veil of fear.
Take these crumbled hopes, etched with tears.
We'll rise above these earthly cares.

Cast your eyes on the ocean.
Cast your soul to the sea.
When the dark night seems endless.
Please remember me.
Please remember me.

~ Loreena McKennitt,
"Dante's Prayer"
