Oh, my dear jan-u-wine, this is just too beautiful! Love it so much. What a marvelous tribute to the Professor who has touched so many lives. Love the picture you used, dear mechtild, too! That could indeed be Sam there and so wonderful it inspired such a masterpiece as this poem!

Happy Birthday indeed! *hugs to all three of you*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

I'm so glad you enjoyed the birthday post this year, Antane. I love what jan-u-wine wrote. What a gift Tolkien has given to us, his world and work. Did you do a Tolkien toast where you live? There's no such thing here in Duluth, but jan-u-wine attended the L.A. one.

No. If I remember, which I didn't this year, I raise my own glass of orange juice (don't drink anything stronger) to him.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)

thank you very much, dear Antane! I'm so glad that you liked the post. Every day is a special day, but this one just a wee bit more!

(and congratulations on your wins at MEFA!)

Antane, I have to correct myself....i *thought* that each nominated piece had either rec'd an award or an honorable mention, but i was not understanding the site correctly. Out of the 14 (!) pieces that you nominated, 10 rec'd recognition. Thank you again, and of course i will write more.

Wonderful on both counts, the marvelous results and that you will write more! More nominations to come this year, I'm sure! :) *hugs*

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
