Ah, the wonders of the Myst Universe. I talk about it a lot here. Most of my readers know the Myst Universe well and it's a no-brainer of why I cherish it so much.
Well, the guys over at the Mysteria Film Group, yep, they're trying to get a movie made of The Book of Ti'ana, one of the books that comprises The Myst Reader. They asked in one of their blog entries for stories from the community about how Myst has influenced our lives...and guess what...
I won! Actually, it was a tie. But, still, I won!
Ahem...(standing up on the podium with the award in my hand...LOL)
I'd like to thank Kitte, Stung, Kaylea, June, Soosi, Mystdee, Jeannie, Susan, Neems, Essjay, Trisha, Ivy, Mateus, Artemesia, Taelos, Mejan, and all of the rest of my fantastic Myst family, especially Janet "Pepsi" Burress for giving me the resources to write it. It's not just my story, it's ours. There will never be a day when I'm not grateful for all of you, for your positive influence, the never-ending love you've always given me and of course for your generous and accepting friendship. Y'all are truly awesome. Thank you so much.
Ok, and if you'd like to read it, here ya go...
And please, when the movie comes out, go see it!
For our song of the day, I'll give you one of my favorite videos from the Myst Universe...from Exile, the rollercoaster in Amateria...
As I was watching it, I remembered one simple fact, the Myst Universe was built to test the faithful and to test our persistence and resolve. I couldn't have gotten this far in my life without the persistence Myst taught me to have along with the gift of love that it's fanbase has given me. Myst has truly changed my life. For those of you who haven't delved into our universe, isn't it about time you did?
