If you were a member of The Cauldron any time from about 2003 to early 2006, you will remember Chavi (aka Storyteller Cat and, in offline life, Cathlene Patricia McKenna) and starting in early 2005, her ever positive reports on her battle with a rare form of cancer. (You can read some of those posts here on our slow 2005 Archive Board.) The odds were against her from the beginning, but that did not stop her from fighting hard to turn to be one of the rare survivors. And for a time it looked like she really might overcome those long odds. Unfortunately, it wasn't to be so.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008, marks the second anniversary of Chavi's passing. TC has not been the same without her. Last year, we decided to honor her with 24 hours of candle burning. We've decided to do that again this year. We are asking all Cauldron members who knew her, knew of her, or who did not know her but just want to help honor a wonderful person (and wish to participate) to light a candle in her honor at 8pm your local time on April 1st and let it burn for at least an hour. The object is to have 24 hours of candles burning for her -- one hour at a time around the world. Given things like oceans and the like, this may not be completely possible, but I'll bet we can come close.

The time would be marked in your time zone so it would be like a 24-hour honoring of a wonderful person.

If you want to participate, please post in here. Everyone, regardless of religion, is welcome to participate.  If you can't participate at 8pm your time, feel free to pick a different hour, Chavi would not have cared.  Smiley

This is a repost of something I wrote last year in memory of Chavi. Original found here.

This is for everybody. I wrote this in rembrance of Chavi.

Chavi Ravenna,
Storyteller Cat.
Lover of life,
Collector of hats.

Gone too soon
But never forgot.
You'll live in our hearts
Whether you know it or not.

Chavi Ravenna
Bright shining star.
We'll love you forever,
Wherever you are.

Chavi Ravenna,
Storyteller Cat.
We'll miss you forever,
Wherever you're at.

And it's still beautiful.

Has it really been two years already? Sad

I think I remember Chavi, briefly. I can't recall though.

Sad, sad news.

I'll be happy to participate. 8PM eastern time.

I'll light one, even though I didn't know her. Seems like I really missed out. Sad

Has it been so long?  I'm in.  Since we already have a couple of people lighting candles at GMT-4 (8pm EDT), I'll light one at GMT-3, to keep more of a 24-hour thing going--unless there's someone actually in that time zone who intends to light a candle for Chavi.

I hope she's the helpful ancestral ghost she wanted to become.
