TORn moot Thursday in Weta Cave Can't Post

In New Zealand? Join TheOneRing Thursday from 3 - 5 p.m. at the Weta Cave! TORn founder Tehanu and Senior Staff MrCere will be on hand to talk to anybody that might happen by and wants to chat.

It will be casual and fun!

3 weeks too late ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I would have loved to have come, but our timing was all out. We were briefly in Wellington 3 weeks ago.

Another place we have to return to ... next year around Nov/Dec Smile

"Of all faces those of our familiares are the ones both most difficult to play fantastic tricks with, and most difficult really to see with fresh attention. They have become like the things which once attracted us by their glitter, or their colour, or their shape, and we laid hands on them, and then locked them in our hoard, acquired them, and acquiring ceased to look at them.
Creative fantasy, because it is mainly trying to do something else [make something new], may open your hoard and let all the locked things fly away like cage-birds. The gems all turn into flowers or flames, and you will be warned that all you had (or knew) was dangerous and potent, not really effectively chained, free and wild; no more yours than they were you."

Seriously though, I'm a pretty shade of green thinking about it. Someday I would love to visit NZ and see the sights, LOTR and otherwise!

I send people to NZ all the time, you should totally plan for it [In reply to] Can't Post

It's not as big of a burden as you might think, time wise or monetarily. It just takes a bit of planning and off you go.

And is totally worth it! [In reply to] Can't Post

(I say as one of the cruisers who met up with Mr. Cere and Tehanu in Wellington.)

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!

Very true [In reply to] Can't Post

How can you not have a fabulous trip in a place like New Zealand? Throw in a lovely assortment of geeky folk, and you're in nirvana.
