Farewell Drottningholm

This all came down a few days ago, but it’s time I acknowledged it. Saffia Widdershins has written a very good piece about the fate of Drottningholm Palace. This wonderful realm was just about the last place I expected to vanish from the grid – which just serves to remind us that anything can happen at any time.

I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to write about Drottningholm for The Primgraph, Issue 5. During the course of my research and interviews, the owners and roleplayers of Drottningholm were beyond gracious, warm, welcoming and helpful. At the end of my assignment, the owners gifted me with an indulgent Baroque dress.

I returned often after that, to sit by the fountain or quietly stroll the city. I loved the ambiance and the way my mood would settle out during those visits. In the end, it is all prims in the wind, but my memories, and what we have preserved in photographs and articles is a source of comfort and pride.
