Hmmmm, yes, it's a very cute smile, so I guess I can tell you (but don't tell anyone else) that it can be viewed on my website, in the standard Maps page http://www.danielreeve.co.nz/Maps/

Hugs from Daniel Reeve [In reply to] Can't Post

Hey Colleen, how great to "see" you here!

I've finally "de-lurked" for these 10th anniversary celebrations, and you're right: LOTR fans are just the nicest people.

Keep up the brilliant work as always, and I'm looking forward to catching up whenever/wherever we turn up together next.

Hugs, Daniel

Now, make sure you translate the tengwar inscription around the border of the map as you stitch it, and reproduce it without any, er, sewing mistakes... ;-)

Great to see you here Daniel ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I so admire your work - I am for ever in awe of its beauty, and your craftmanship, or should that be your penmanship Wink
My map hangs proudly over my fire place, and is much admired by visitors.

Thankyou for being here for the Anniversary celebration and for all the good wishes.

Im still hoping that there's a book in the works from you, showcasing your calligraphy and art - hopefully we will will see one in the future? I have had my fingers crossed for one for ages Smile
Will you be doing anymore Sketching Tours around Hobbiton and the LOTR sites?
and is there any chance of a Calligraphy Master Classes or exhibitions in Australia or overseas? Have you done any already with your work from LOTR and other movies?

Great to see you here!

Cheers

Well said :) [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank goodness for the conventions and gatherings that give us a chance to meet. ORC 06 was such a great experience, and I was so thrilled to have the chance to see you there. Your "Unsung Heroes Of The Lord of the Rings" was perfectly timed as a place to feed my need for another look at Tolkien's characters. I think they draw me to the story as much as (if not more) than the story itself.

Cheers, Dear Lady... and thank you so much for sharing this celebration of our Founders with us :D Here's to 10 more AT LEAST!

Welcome Eldameldo! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for stopping in to add to the festivities. It turned out great didn't it?
Our founders must be taking quite a delight with what is happening.
Cheers!

''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

This is a beautiful map ... [In reply to] Can't Post

It looks crisp and cold in the blue and white tones ...
What a great shame Frown it wasn't suitable.

but, the map now has a history ... a story behind it - I love maps just for that fact - they have so many stories to tell, just for the fact that they're maps. Smile

Thankyou for posting it.

With bells on and streamers attached to my walker :D *counts on finger* I'll be 67! Then at our next party, I'll be 77... and so on and so VERY on!

Thanks so much Xo. I always wonder how you keep everything going as you balance RL, this site and all the extra-curricular activities that are spawned from it. Calisuri, Tehanu, Corvar and you have really created a significant Haven (or Asylum ;) for all of us here and for anyone curious about Tolkien and Jackson's films. Thank you for your constancy and total class :)

Cheers!

RE" Sharing our Tolkien experience [In reply to] Can't Post

I like the way you phrased it--we've all certainly had many different, and often meandering, paths to get here.

When I think back over the past decade, I'm remembering this weekend all the anticipation for the LotR films, never knowing that I'd return to a love of writing about film because of them. I didn't think I'd make it to New Zealand (and now I've been three times, and I'm looking forward to another trip when The Hobbit arrives). I never thought I'd get a chance to speak at fan conventions, much less meet some of my favorite actors there. I read Tolkien's manuscripts at the Marquette archives and was in awe of all the scholarship contained in one place. I can't even count the number of amazing Tolkien fans I've met in person or online, which is the best part of fandom. And now I'm trying to share some of my excitement for Tolkien's works with my students, so the path will continue long after I'm too old to figure out how to "post" on whatever new media come along. Ten years ago I had no idea where my Tolkien travels would take me, and when I look forward to the Hobbit films, I wonder just what all will come from our shared love of Tolkien in the next decade.

So, however we've made it here, I'm very glad we all have, and this weekend is the perfect time to catch up with everyone. It's a lot of fun to read the boards, so thanks for getting us all going to post this weekend!

Thanks for letting me join the party! [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks! I'm going to be at DragonCon this year, so maybe we can chat there! I'm excited to be part of the Tolkien track--and I know there's a lot of news to share and events for everyone to catch up with.

Isn't it great how TORn connects everyone? This is my favorite fan site ever.

I was hoping you'd be here, Daniel! [In reply to] Can't Post

Someone else posted the photo of my framed map, in my office, which I enjoy every day. But here I want to post one of my favorite photos from my Red Carpet tour of March '08 (so long ago, now!), when I got to thank you in person for your excellent work -- and not just on the map! What a wonderful morning that was for all of us.

Keep up the good work, and thank you!



(I'm pointing to my own name on the border of the map.)

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!

Truly the best fellowship [In reply to] Can't Post

This is the best, isn't it? I think there's something about Tolkien's works that brings us together--the nicest people I've met are "Tolkien people." Whether we love the films or prefer the books, or however we enjoy the many adaptations of our favorite literature, we share a common bond that often becomes the basis for some fantastic friendships. And it's great this weekend to read all these posts from people all over the world who are equally enthusiastic. Very cool.
