Re: Indian summer

Dear Mary.....thank you so much for taking time out of the busy day to come read and comment. It *is* a wonderful reprieve, isn't it, to be able to visit the quiet lanes (and dunes!) that make up Frodo's memories.

Sometimes, when i write (well, ok...often!), I don't know why something is right. Often, it's a matter of emotion...if it *feels* right, then (except for cleaning up the words, if need be), i let it be.

And you know what The Beatles said about *that*. When you have such a perfect character as Tolkien created in Frodo, it's easy to get to the emotions and connect those to some lovely words. It's easy to "let it (him) be". And Mech's brilliant painting choices just polish the poems ever more brightly. (thank *you*, dear Mechtild, ever my partner in LOTR "crime"!)

btw, i saw a trailer Saturday for "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close". Looked good. Tom Hanks = good choice.

thank you again, Mary. My love, always,
