Joyous labor [In reply to] Can't Post

Interesting that you should say that, as (once again going back to Akallabeth) the complaint was that Men should have to leave all that they had built, and only enjoy their labours for a little while, before death; whereas the Eldar had centuries to enjoy their labours, longer if they were lucky. By joyous labor, do you mayhaps mean that what Edain build after death they get to keep?
