Time and it's Reckoning.

In Reply To
but is getting easier. My favorite story so far Elwe and Melion. Love it! I think possibly it was meant to have happened before the Time/Space Continuem was developed, so in the very early days of Arda there was no time as we know it. Just speculating.

That's an interesting notion, though I don't think it holds up well as a hypothesis. Even ignoring modern physics and looking at this completely as mythology, I would say that the passage of time as we understood it would have had to have begun before the awakening of the Elves. Even in the Spring of Arda, time would have needed to flow as living things stirred to life to live, procreate and die. How time was accounted in a world without Sun or Moon would be an entirely different question. In the time of the Two Trees, one day was said to have lasted for twelve hours. Then there were the Valian Years, each lasting for approximately 9.582 solar years.
