“I’ve had so many names. Old names that only the wind and the trees can pronounce. I am the mountain, the forest and the earth. I am… I am a faun.” ~ Pan from Pan’s Layrinth
That is a quote from one of my favorite movies…the gist of the story is a little girl during the Francoist regime in Spain copes with her hardships by going into this fantasy world…but in the end, is it fantasy really? Or was she destined to arrive at that place?
During my nooby days in Second Life I was going through some hard things in real life and always dressed as a faun. A couple years later when a bad SL relationship ended I went back to being a faun. For me, being a faun is a comfort place of fantasy where I do not have to abide by the rules of reality. Do not worry, nothing is wrong now…it is just nice to return to a place of peace and refreshment. Where is your comfort place?
“A long time ago, in the underground realm, where there are no lies or pain, there lived a Princess who dreamed of the human world. She dreamed of blue skies, soft breeze, and sunshine. One day, eluding her keepers, the Princess escaped. Once outside, the brightness blinded her and erased every trace of the past from her memory. She forgot who she was and where she came from. Her body suffered cold, sickness, and pain. Eventually, she died. However, her father, the King, always knew that the Princess’ soul would return, perhaps in another body, in another place, at another time. And he would wait for her, until he drew his last breath, until the world stopped turning…“ ~ Pan’s Labyrinth
