Ď**FD: A Founderís (Day), Administrators and TORnsib Friendship Thread Can't Post

Welcome!

It seems but a short time ago since our 10th year festival celebrating the happening of the TORn boards. And the old boards are remembered dearly too on reflection, giving us so many wonderful moments which served to weave a strong foundation, bulwarking the present boards with a vibrant past.

But why has this phenomenon occurred at all? Why has all this Ďvibrancyí come to being in the first place? What dimension of spirit could have been sung into being to cause this?

Perhaps it could be said it started with a young childís enthralled and happy adventures in the rustic countryside of Sarehole, England, a country in which this gentle spirit came to dearly love. With this impetus began, now known as high fantasy, a world of magnificent dimension was subcreatively sung into being . And with the love of family and friends wrote with a heart that captured the world for over 50 years.

It is borne out from one of his own themes, where just a small entity as one spirit can change the world. And J. R. R. Tolkien has. The legions will attest to that. We have all been profoundly Ďreachedí in one way or the other here at TORn . Otherwise we would not persist to dwell here. And because the way we are rooted together in this fertile common ground, we have developed fine friendships worldwide. It is a beautiful thing not only to share our love with Tolkien, but to share our personal daily lives and families too. And on the boards because of our closeness, we can and may express the full dimension, in whatever way, what Tolkien has given us and means to us too. For all of you newbies, the tribute from last year may give you a bit more perspective and you can find it here:

in this link

So now, with love and respect to Tolkien and TORn , (with dear thoughts to our own legions of originators and admin. staff), if you may, please tell us how your friendships here have touched your lives and along perhaps how Tolkien has also, knowing that your own voice will join the chorus of so many others that have filled this house over the years and Tolkienís forest and hills throughout Middle-earth as well.

Further note:

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

By order of the party management. (MarvOlous as they are also).


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 ManwŽ 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 ManwŽ Sķlimo
