a mathom for the 10th TORNIVERSARY

a mathom for the 10th TORNIVERSARY Can't Post

I was saving this for my own 10th in three months, but it seems to want to go here now:

to the tune of "I Remember It Well" from "Gigi"

He: We met on TORc.
She: We met on TORn.
He: We both liked Orcs.
She: No, Dunadain.
He: Ah yes! I remember it well.
Aelric threw cakes.
She: No, he threw pies.
He: Green Magus joked?
She: Blue Wizardized.
He: Ah yes! I remember it well.
That “Uma plays Arwen!” rumor!
She: It was Galadriel,
And Ethan Hawke for Faramir.
He: That's right! That's right! Ah yes! I remember it well.
She: It warms my heart that you remember the First Age still the way you do.
He: How often I've thought of that February -
She: April . . .
He: - day, when we first posted on TORn.
And somehow I've foolishly wondered . . .
If you might by some chance . . .
Have archived my posts?
Ufthak wrote songs.
She: Gandalf diary rants.
He: You started “hats.”
She: No, it was “pants”!
He: Ah yes! I remember it well.
We all agreed.
She: The purist wars!
He: No one was mean.
She: Those trollish bores!
He: Ah yes! I remember it well.
You were a Viggo fan.
She: I loved Sean Bean.
He, contritely: Am I a bore?
She: Not once that I’ve seen!
What fun you were,
How eloquent;
(coyly) And rather Elf-ish in your lineaments.
He: Ah yes! I remember it well.

To change how we see things takes falling in love. Then the same becomes altogther different. Like love, a shift of sight can be redemptive. - James Hillman

That is amazing and very funny. And nostalgic. Well done!

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!

Excellent, Annael, thank you!

''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 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

Because Admins could do that, you know....not that I ever did, but I was sometimes tempted. AngelicWink


"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

So sentimental, it brings a tear to my eye. Yeah, I guess the memory starts fading after ten years. Still, they're good memories, whether we remember them well or not. Smile

Aw, thanks for giving us your mathom early! [In reply to] Can't Post

I love this!

Lots of names and things I've only come to know from what I've heard of them..

Thanks for posting it early!

I did not realize you'd been here 10 years -- if you are up for it, I'd love to hear more of your memories of TORn's early years -- I did not show up until TTT, I think!

Happy early Torniversary to you!
