What fun!

Good ol' Weta!! What a great package of treats!

I'm honestly so moved and impressed at how many people and companies I've come to admire are showing us so much kindness. This is amazing!

Thanks Weta! I'll be there in a sec!

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

What a wonderful offer!

I have to accept:).
Well, that was quick of me. This is going to be fun.

Thank you Weta. You gave so much to us today:).

''What connects Nature to the spiritual, or requires the presence of the latter? In positive terms, as Alkis Kontos points out, when nature was still largely experienced as integral, alive and active, 'It was the spiritual dimension of the world, its enchanted, magical quality that rendered it infinite, not amenable to complete calculability; spirit could not be quanified; it permitted and invited mythologization.' And I would add, it still is and does.''
Patrick Curry-Defending Middle-Earth-Tolkien: Myth and Modernity - chapter: 'The Sea: Spirituality and Ethics.'

May the grace of Manw let us soar with eagle's wings!

In the air, among the clouds in the sky
Here is where the birds of Manwe fly
Looking at the land, and the water that flows
The true beauty of earth shows
With the stars of Varda lighting my way
In all the realms this is where I stay
In the realm of Manw Slimo

W stands for Wonderful :)

The entire crew at WETA are such dearies Heart

Crows and Gibbets! What is the House of Eorl but a thatched barn where brigands drink in the reek and their brats roll around on the floor with the dogs? You are but a lesser son of greater sires!
