Another Moment of your Time  by Larner 6 Review(s)
AndreaReviewed Chapter: 75 on 3/6/2015
And Iíve heard them, too, blowing for me, he thought. Only itís not time for me to sail, not yet. But one day I probably shall, and find him again, afore I go on.

Great last sentence! I think Sam should take this as a promise, a promise from Ulmo himself that the road is free for him to take whenever he wants to.
But he also made a promise to Frodo and is determined to fulfil it. It will not be easy to wait, but it will be worth it!

Author Reply: I so agree, Andrea. Sam will live as fully as he can while he can, and bring those memories to share with Frodo when he is free to answer that call.

The last sentence brought tears to my eyes. As always, I love your writings.

Author Reply: It is always so wonderful to realize something I wrote has managed to touch others emotionally. Thank you so, Tari!

Le hannon, my dear! I love the thought of Ulmo blowing the horn for Frodo's soul to hearken to. The Valar loved this dear child of Iluvatar in so many ways. Bless him and them and Sam and you!!

Namarie, hugs, Antane :)

Author Reply: And you are most welcome. I love wandering through the Encyclopedia of Arda now and then--it gives the most interesting inspirations!

A lovely few moments in time. I can just see that shell, a family heirloom of sorts, on the mantel.

Author Reply: I can imagine it there, too.

Am heading your way for Easter and my birthday. Will see you and the family sometime in between.

So nicely bittersweet, Cyclamen is the perfect person to draw Sam out.


Author Reply: It's wonderful to find I'm reflecting the tone of "The Grey Havens." And I do like Cyclamen and am glad when she finds her way into a story.

That's a lovely, poignant scene. Cyclamen will never forget this conversation, I'm sure.

Author Reply: Thanks so, Shirebound. And I also doubt the lass will forget this and the sight of the shell and the images it now evokes in her.
