Hello SDC [In reply to] Can't Post

I have heard of this circumstance for workers and their families. I wish you well. At least gas has come down 2 whole dollars.

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

Woo hoo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Happy homecoming to us!

I need a good strong coffee today; I went to a high school play last night in a town (Brush) that's two hours from home, and got back way after midnight. I didn't know anyone in the play, or the town, or anything. Here's how it happened; my daughter lives in a nearby town, and has been having a bit of a lonely time adjusting to her new home. We spoke on the phone, and she said she was thinking of going to the school play, which was "Little Women". I thought it was great that she was finding something to do out there in the boonies, and besides, I loooove Little Women, so I decided to go see it with her, and Uncle Baggins came too. It was pretty good for a play at a very small high school. The script was straight out the book, so I found myself anticipating the lines (better than the actors sometimes) since I know the book so well. What fun! The sets were great: they had asked the local farming folks to borrow antiques from their houses, and people came up with all kinds of cool furniture and stuff.

Tomorrow my daughter and I are planning to participate in the National Day of Protest over California's Proposition 8. These are happening all over the country, in every state, at the same time (11:30 Mountain time for us). If anyone else is interested in participating, here's a link:

Join the impact

This was a grass-roots effort by two bloggers, and hundreds of thousands of people are expected to participate. I debated whether to post here about it, and decided maybe I could get away with it on Fiesta Friday.

So I'll dig out my rainbow-colored stocking cap and join the parade. I just have to decide which town to go to, since there are more than one not too far from my home.

Two wine glasses? But of course, I'm joining you, my dear! Smile

15,500 words and counting [In reply to] Can't Post

Novel Writing Month is going well, I guess. I've finally hit a stride in my writing, but I need to write 10,000 words this weekend to get caught up, so I'll be looking for spare hours to write.

In the meantime, I'll have a beer, please. The weather is getting colder and my older sis is moving away to Chicago next weekend. She'll be the first member of my immediate family to live more than two hours away. It's going to be an adjustment.

Happy Friday, everyone! I've been waiting for this week to end. It sure took it's time. Cool

*bounces in* [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew I woke up early today for a reason! And I noticed the member count, too; think we can have some sort of celebration at 3000? Cool

Fandom wise this has been a very, very productive week for me. I finished my first LOTR music video which was an absolute blast to create (it's up on the Fan Art board if you are interested), and I definitely plan on making more. I've also been writing fan fiction like mad- it is a never ending flow of ideas nowadays! I love it.

As for RL, everyone in this household is sick. I might have something, but it's not fully developed... hopefully it will stay that way.

A fire broke out up north and has already burned 100 or so homes :/ It's not near enough to be a cause of worry for myself, but if the winds shift our way I should be able to see the smoke.

Cheers! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Ooog. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm sorry to hear that. When I was in my twenties, Uncle Baggins and I had to do something like that; though he was able to come home on the weekends. He was working about two hours away from home, and almost killed himself falling asleep at the wheel, and decided he couldn't commute, so he stayed at a dive motel during the week with other construction workers. It was pretty lonely for both of us, and also stressful because when he came home on weekends we had to get used to each other again. As much as you love somebody, that can still be a problem.

Anyway, wishing the best for you and your family.
