My goodness... [In reply to] Can't Post

My thoughts are with those in the Philippines and surrounding areas. Crossing my fingers that rescue workers can save those feared missing.

I know that DwellerInDale is in SE Asia, but I'm not positive if it's the Philippines (I feel like it is, though). Hope he's ok.

Very sad news [In reply to] Can't Post

Another terrible tragedy in out world, this is very sad.
My thoughts, heart and prayers are with everyone in the Philippines, especially for those who have lost loved ones, and have been displaced from their homes or injured. I also pray for all the poor animals that are frightened, lost or injured too.

I think he's in Singapore.... [In reply to] Can't Post

So hopefully ok.
I hope the aid can get to these people fast.


Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!

I've seen a couple of posts here from him too, so that's good.

Alive and well, thanks. [In reply to] Can't Post

Actually I live in Thailand, which won't get the full force of the typhoon. Thanks to everyone for being concerned! I work with several people from the Philippines, so tomorrow I should know more about how their relatives have fared.

Don't mess with my favorite female elf.

The cruelty and indifference of nature knows no bounds [In reply to] Can't Post

 
Heart for the survivors and their families and all creatures that found themselves under that hammer. And prayers as well for the people of Vietnam that they are spared the same catastrophe.
