If you could have been priveleged to be here when Clover was at her height. Witty, hilarious, firm in her convictions. And she gave awards to many that were so much fun no one wanted to miss a day here.
it was with a heavy heart we let go of her so she could move on as life must move on. But her words still resonate through the halls of Middle-Earth, some so profound they take your breath away. Other words that make you smile the way Pippin and Merry made you smile. I love her.
Oh my, what an honor! Thank you, thank you, Leelee! I have never won the POTW before (though I remember when it was started). I am glad to be so appreciated; PT has always been a rock!
Now, indeed, I post much less frequently, and in much shorter segments. Gone are the lengthy discourses on some fine point penned by the great Professor himself, at least, gone for now. I do wish for more leisure time in my life, so that I could walk Middle Earth again, retrace all the battles and journeys on maps and stare into space, seeing the bright colors of Hobbiton or hearing the waters of Rivendell rush in their fury. But I am young, being only 21 this year, and I am grateful that I have discovered Middle Earth in all its fantastic glory before I must get muddled into the real world. I think that discovering Tolkien as a second-grader reading the Hobbit was the best way to enter his world; I was still dreamy, my mind was still open, and I half-believed that if I traveled enough, I would eventually come to a land of Hobbits. How magical it was! And for me, that magic will never dim, as I lock it in my heart during the long periods I must devote to work and study.
I love this world, and I love this community that I share it with. May the stars shine upon your paths forever!
