Ginny Gremlin, mentor, live-helper, mother, writer, and friend – full of wit, passion and compassion and understanding.

She’s gone.

She went into hospital on the ninth of September. Yesterday, I found out that her condition was very serious.

This-morning I woke up to a message from her son that she had passed away in the night.

Ginny, we loved you. We miss you, already. Your loss diminishes us all.

We will not forget you. Rest in peace, dear one. You’ve more than earned it.



pas·sion
n.

  1. A powerful emotion, such as love, joy, hatred, or anger.
    1. Ardent love.
    2. Strong sexual desire; lust.
    3. The object of such love or desire.
    1. Boundless enthusiasm: His skills as a player don’t quite match his passion for the game.
    2. The object of such enthusiasm: Soccer is her passion.
  2. An abandoned display of emotion, especially of anger: He’s been known to fly into a passion without warning.


Ginny has a passion. A burning passion for mentoring.

You may not see as much of her about. She likes to take newbies to a quiet, well-equipped place where she can assist them with few distractions, and little noise. She’s there alright. Fetching newbie after newbie. She answers their questions and she passes on some of her passion for SL. You can feel the fire in her, and when people interfere with SL or with the newbies – to their detriment, she will turn that boundless blaze on them.

In contrast to Katiahnya, Ginny is a fiery redhead who knows her own mind, and isn’t afraid to say her piece. She won’t dissemble, or beat about the bush. If she backs you, she backs you all the way – as she does with her newbie charges. Attract her ire, and she’ll burn you. Where Katiahnya instills a certain ethereal wonder in the possibilities of SL, Ginny sets the imaginations of the newbies aflame.
