GREAT find Pryderi. [In reply to] Can't Post

I really enjoyed this. I thought about what he said about being just an ordinary scholar. Well...perhaps on the surface..:). A chimney is just a chimney until you experience the brilliance at the hearth.

I like what the young woman said about Tolkien writing the story with language as a premise but then the story itself took hold. I had always believed that. The exercise of scholarship grew into (from) the matters of the heart and soul.

It was just so wonderful to walk with the professor. And then sit with him and catch the gems as they fell from the things that he said and the way he said them.

And at the end the retreating aerial as Tolkien stood there with that deep voice in song was very moving.

It is in my favorites now, as a prized possession:).

Thank you.


''Sam put his ragged orc-cloak under his master's head, and covered them both with the grey robe of Lorien; and as he did so his thoughts went out to that fair land, and to the Elves, and he hoped that the cloth woven by their hands might have some virtue to keep them hidden beyond all hope in this wilderness of fear...But their luck held, and for the rest of that day they met no living or moving thing; and when night fell they vanished into the darkess of Mordor.'' - - -rotk, chapter III

May the grace of ManwŰ 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 ManwŰ S˙limo
