Goodness, what a post! The manips are soooo beautiful. Especially the first one moves me- it's so golden, so sunny, so positive... and so very warm.
This is how you must feel walking in the sun in the Shire.
The second one makes my heart beating faster, it looks a little bit dangerous. There is rustle to hear, the wind is blowing slightly and the upcoming danger is palpable somehow.
Wonderful works, mechtild.

Jan's Poem is breathtaking. She's very gifted, isn't she. She catched up the moments, Frodo's thoughts in a way only she can.

"Only a dreme,
the edges of it
stitched with down-feather'd memory,
the boundaries of it
dun-fur swaddled
by the soothing
arms of time."

This IS like a dream, so so so beautiful. *happy sigh*

Thanks to both of you, my friends.
You made my night. And I know exactly what I'll be reading in bed tonight...

*hugs you both gently*

Hi, Julchen! I've been out of town but got back an hour ago. Now I am beginning to go through the mail. I'm so glad you enjoyed this post, both the lovely Cuyp manip (I love the way you described it - golden, sunny, positive and warm) and the splendid poem by Jan. Thanks so much for stopping and commenting.
