No, no and no [In reply to] Can't Post

as to -'our aged, overweight and out-of-shape selves'. Hey you guys are not exactly racing, you're in the reflective gambit mode:).
The beauty is DOING it. I don't know how many times i've cheered on those last triathlon participants coming across the finish line. Talking to many of them a number had said how slow and how far behind they were. People of all ages they were. I said to them 'hey man, you are in it! And you finished! You joined the flight with everyone else and you are as much a part of this celebration (of life) as anyone!

This applies to climbing mountains too, and al sorts of physical/mental/spiritual aspirations *trying to stand like Tolkien (good example he was/is) up in front of his class with resounding spirit*.

And you get to share it all with people who careSmile. And you dispell other's blues-iness in the bargain i'll warrant:).

I am fascinated with the life of mountains and those human souls who passed by or dwelled there...for how many 1000's of years i wonder? Those cairns are a fascination to explore i bet. How many lives did they save with those sudden storms that happen in the high country? I like to read Louis L'Amour because he resources heavily on local histories and then gets into the remote high country all through the west for inspiration to write his dramas of survival.

My son and i love to explore all the niches and crannies along our ridge too to try and find signs of habitation.

Ooo elk! And fluffy ptarmigans.

Hey, nice hat ladyWink!

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."

Tolkien and C.S. Lewis- The Gift of Friendship -Duriez


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
By El~Cugu

From the website: 'The Realm of Manwe'
