Hey Lady! [In reply to] Can't Post

Cripes it's great to see you! Don't worry about those threads over in RR. Even though the posts drop off the board, you KNOW they love to go back and revisit. Just post on the old thread and link it in a current thread and they'll eat it right up ;)

*hugs* It's great to have you here!

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

Happy Froday everyone! [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't really been away, but it's hard for me to get to Fiesta, as I'm usually buried in work on Friday. I'm making an effort today to wave at everyone old and new.
***waves!***

Chilly day here in Detroit, and kind of grey. Can you send a hobbit over here with some kind of flaming concoction?


"That is one thing that Men call 'hope.' Amdir we call it, 'looking up.' But there is another which is founded deeper. Estel we call it, that is 'trust.' It is not defeated by the ways of the world, for it does not come from experience, but from our nature and First Being. If we are indeed the Eruhin, the Children of the One, then He will not suffer Himself to be deprived of His own, not by any enemy, not even by ourselves. This is the last foundation of estel, which we keep even when we contemplate the End. Of all His designs the issue must be for His children's joy."

Will do gramma:) [In reply to] Can't Post

Hugs all around , here and your way. Thanks!

Yes, perhaps one day:).

"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."

Tolkien and C.S. Lewis- The Gift of Friendship -Duriez


May the grace of Manwë 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 Manwë Súlimo
By El~Cugu (From the website: 'The realm of Manwe')

I'd clink my glass with yours, but my flaming concoction and your red wine would probably explode.

Happy Weekend, everyone, stay warm and dry!

It was lovely to get your email and it's nice to come back for a visit. Good to see lots of familiar faces here too.
