Ah, yes, we've found this to be true as well.

(typing on a sticky keyboard. really puts a crimp in the writing!)

Joyous Noel to you and yours.

Author Reply: Reading the works of good writers does help one to be a better one oneself! And I certainly have had my share of sticky keyboards!

Oh, yes. Perfectly done!

Author Reply: Thanks so! I hope to have time to do some reading in the next few days. Will try to see you perhaps Wednesday evening. Love to the husband, young Hobbits, and the animals. You'll get to meet my new furry children as well.

What an inspiring memory for him.

Joyous Yule to you, my friend.

Author Reply: I so hope he found it so, Shirebound. And may yours be filled with joy!

Author Reply: A rather sour one for Christmas Eve, but one I do suspect he'd appreciate. Love to you and yours!

There's so much in this short paragraph! I love the deduction of the origin of hobbits, and also why Frodo would be connected to the energy and song of the Star Kindler.

Author Reply: I'm so glad you like it, Shirebound. Thanks so!

No wonder Faramir’s teachers quailed at the name of the pass! It was named for her! This is the Spider’s Pass!

And poor Frodo had no reason to be certain the spider chasing him wasn't Ungoliant. There was nothing definite in the ancient tales about her end....

Author Reply: You are so right, eiluj! But facing this spider and her webs, even darker than her get residing in Mirkwood, must have been so terrifying for him!

Where I come from it's known as "noodling". Just sayin'. ;)

Author Reply: So I've been told. I've never learned the art to it, no matter what it may be called! Heh!

Who else could have made such a remark?

In fact she's just jealous.

Most of the Elven songs in LOTR are "songs of power and majesty", but the song with which the Elves welcomed Bilbo and the dwarves in Rivendell in "The Hobbit" was, well, not frivolous, but cheeky ;-)

Author Reply: Who indeed but Lalia might have said such a thing? Yes, jealous indeed! Elves might have been capable of being frivolous at times, but isn't that true of all of us? Thanks so, Andrea!

I wonder if Frodo thought of Lalia when he heard Galadriel sing in Lórien?

Thank you for keeping things going this month!

Author Reply: If he did, I suspect it was with a level of contempt for his departed great-aunt. And you are welcome!

After all, we are told that the Powers sang the whole universe into existence.

What a great counter-argument to Aunt Lalia's dismissal of the value of song.

Author Reply: And I so agree! Lalia had no sense of perspective, I suspect.
