W I N T E R C E A R I G . . . "Her hair was long, her limbs were white, And fair she was and free; And in the wind she went as light As leaf of linden-tree. Beside the falls of Nimrodel, By water clear and cool, Her voice as falling silver fell Into the shining pool. Where now she wanders none can tell, In sunlight or in shade; For lost of yore was Nimrodel And in the mountains strayed." - (excerpt from 'The Song of Nimrodel', by JRR Tolkien) . . . The winter season has held firm dominion over the land and in the hearts of its inhabitants for some time now. The darker season presents itself in a wide array of forms; at times majestic, as seen in the resplendent crystalline wonder of softly falling snow, and at others, harsh, monotonous and oppressive as the howling winds bearing down across frozen tundra. The aspects of transforming power which give winter its greatest beauty are also those which make it treacherous and perilous. The winter season provides a contemplative atmosphere, but it can also bring with it a profound melancholy and isolation which one can become lost within. Much like the ice, binding waters in frozen stasis, we can often find ourselves being held captive by our thoughts, beholden to negative patterns of behavior. It can seem as though the potential which once was before us has ceased, leaving us to wander aimlessly, astray from coherent purpose. With winter's grasp beginning to give way, what are some thoughts or modes of behavior that you wish set yourself free from? In what ways can you envision and manifest this change within your being? . . .

#currentlyreading my favorite books ever. ☺️ Both for #middleearthmarch and #tookishtbrtakedown (March’s prompt is “Read a whole series in a month”). March is the best month, and reading LOTR makes it even better. ⚔️ • • I love this edition of the series. Tolkien’s cover art and all the other design details he wanted make me so happy, and the books feel perfect in my hands. They’re just the right weight and shape. I haven’t dived into the reader’s companion yet, but it looks like a mine of extremely detailed and nerdy information 😀

Nosso primeiro reclame! Um casal de Hobbits reivindicou esse POST para reclamar da nova moda de alguns estabelecimentos humanos próximos de Beirágua. Não é a primeira vez que as placas de: "sem sapatos, sem serviço", trazem descontentamento. Ultrajante, foi a palavra que os Hobbits utilizaram!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀➖➖➖➖➖⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #terramedia#tolkien#senhordosaneis#literaturafantastica#hobbits#middleearth
