So, out of some curiosity I looked for her profile and saw someone full of positivity, a great and expressive writing ability, musical tastes I really clicked with and someone my own age, as well. Noticing the postings ended abruptly I searched a bit more and have run across this news from 2012. I know it's weird but I want to wish, here in 2015, the best to all who knew this lady, and especially to family as well. Hey, if I get this sense in just a few minutes after scanning a stranger's entries and profile, this had to be a special spirit, and we are richer to know that such spirits as her's still do add to the collective spirit pool. That energy still vibrates.

CYANara - CYAN as in blue - is all I can get from it. 

 
Funny about our user names. Phonetically Cynaera makes me think "blue aura." Which would be found in a sensitive, emotional (empathetic), "spiritual" person. I can't think of the aura without thinking of the throat chakra, which has an impact on singing, speaking, sound, you guessed it, music.
I did not know Cynaera except from the reverence I saw given to her when I read through her posted conversations. Clearly that is my loss. But I see how the conversation goes on despite her relocation.  Maybe now she is Chimera...the mythological combined creature... part past and part what is to come.

Still. The same spammed 'miss you/love this song'. Cynaera really does deserve better respect here than to be spammed daily by an idiot. But I must say I do get a fun little bit of schadenfreude seeing an idiot respond to his former identity here and knowing that because he is an idiot he has been relegated to one part of the website. At this point he is really only trolling himself.

I'm so sorry. I did not know her well, but remember her presence was always positive influence, and her posts often brought a smile to my face. RIP, Cynaera. Condolences to your family and other loved ones.

I don't think my earlier time with RP coincided with the time of this lady, I don't remember her at all - but I truly wish it had coincided.
Sounds as if she was/is a particularly spectacular someone who mattered to many, and that is something that can go on and on for many, many lifetimes.

S'funny how you can really know magic but a few times in your life.

Hi James,

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your thoughts and feelings regarding your sister. I barely knew her, but knew her quite well in the forum. I believe we exchanged a few comments between us. She was always very thought provoking and deep with her comments. I liked that she was what she was and nothing more or less. We had similar tastes in music. She will always be missed here and hopefully you can manage to listen to RP once in a while and reconnect with Ann.

How's the Harley?

Hi all;
   I'm Cynaera's brother James. I just wanted to tell all of you how much I appreciate all your comments on Cynaera. I went through and read all 9 pages,smiling through the tears. Naturally,I miss her terribly still,but it makes the pain much easier to bear to know I'm not hurting alone. I've been so blown away as I learn how many lives she was a part of,and I wish you all could have met her face to face. To be honest,I often didn't have such glowing remarks to give about her,as she could be-challenging to live with at times. But,no matter what,she was always exactly herself,take it or leave it. Giving was so ingrained in her nature,she just didn't feel right unless she could help somebody. A short story about her character.
   In 1998 I had sold my beloved 1980 Harley while living in Reno,to finance a move to Boise Idaho for a job,with the plan of buying another one once I was getting regular paychecks. Things didn't go as well as I'd expected them to,so I didn't get another bike,and a lot happened in the following years. I moved back home to Elko,Nevada in 2000. In 2008 I was in the Hospital,trying to get over pneumonia.and my Doctor was strongly urging me to do some home improvements (smoke damage from both parents' 40 years of heavy cigarette smoking-painting,hardwood floors,etc.)to make the house safe to live in with my breathing issues. Ann and I decided I should re-finance the house to cover some remodeling. Ann suggested,then insisted that I take enough to buy myself another Harley. She said,"James,every time a Harley goes by the house I see you die a little inside. You should get another Harley-you've paid your dues-now do something for YOU for a change,dammit." (clenched fists,stomps her foot,grins and blushes) It figures,that she'd see something in me that even I didn't spot. Ann would do just about anything for others,but would flat reject offers of assistance for herself. She was TOO stubborn,many times.
   Anyway,the reason I'm writing is to let you know how touched I am with your kind words and your appreciation of her contributions. She considered you good people her online family,a hard title to earn. I'd often hear her laughing or talking back to the computer while she wrote something on the forum or commented on a song or read a comment someone had written. You had as huge an impact on her as she did on you. Thank you for taking care of her while she was in your midst. She truly was in good company there,as I believe she is now.

Thank you. Cynaera's presence here was one of the things that kept me coming back when the as-to-be-expected ruckus and rants got to be overwhelming in the RP forums. She touched my life with her personal communications via PMs, where she both confided and  consoled. Your sharing of that most precious of intimacies – the remembrances of a loved one gone from this world – indicates that the kind and considerate nature for which we knew your sister most certainly is a family trait.
