*FD: Welcome to Founders Day! Can't Post

*dashes in without pocket handkerchief*

Greetings, TORnadoes and welcome to Founders Day and the Eleventh Anniversary of TORn!

Last years' celebration included the story of the founding of TORn, in the style of the Valaquenta. The Founders Day committee decided that the Valaquenta of TORn will be sort of our "Christmas Tree", that we haul out every year to decorate the place. Here is the original post from the home page for your amusement and edification.




"Remember, everyone who replies to this thread will be entered into a drawing for a fun virtual doorprize -- winners announced at Fiesta next Friday."

A toast to our Founders, if I may... [In reply to] Can't Post

**stands on chair, raises glass**

To our founding four -- thank you for starting this great site, and for keeping it going, too -- long may you defend our cyberspace!


Thanks for the reprisal of the Valaquenta, too AE -- a lovely bit of writing there by you, well worth a revisit!

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!

Man, there is one great echo in here:)

You guys deserve so much for your diligence and love. And it is being returned many-fold now. I humbly offer you my deep respect to you all. It is amazing how from a small gray seed will grow a towering majestic living thing.


sample


''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

Alive in Christ a new creation started breathin', Life exists and through this came completion. ... I'm not that person anymore (more!)! That's what blood was shed for! No longer a failure, livin' life more abundantly, therefore you'll never see me livin' less than victory."

I gave up on myself, and left my pride disarmed; I cried out 'I'm alone!' and found myself in Your arms. 'Rest in Me, oh, My love; I have loved you before the world began. Rest in Me, oh, My love; you'll never wander too far to reach My hand.'"

Eleven years is far too short a time to spend among such excellent and admirable TORNsibs! And sadly I don't know half of you half as well as I should like, what with living so far away and all.
But I'll raise a glass to you all, too, who have made this the warm and friendly community it is! (and TALENTED, that always blows me away anew!)
