"Melancholy". Yes, I feel it too. It permeates Rivendell, certainly. But it runs all through LotR, and Jan's poetry. I'm a big fan of melancholy in art, perhaps because I experience it in my own life, whether unadulterated or in the midst of other emotions, even joy. I think it enhances one's sense for things in their passing, especially beautiful things, valuing them all the more for their transitory-ness. And I remember you saying you loved that light, Mews. In fact, you've got an eye for light generally. I think that's a precious gift.

a feeling of something that's lasted past its time, and is slowly fading.

Lovely description, Mews. The Shire is eternal spring, the mud slides along with the blossoms, but wedded to harvest time's bounty, in contrast to Rivendell's fragile falling leaves of autumn. PJ captured them perfectly. Though I thought book Rivendell had some domestic fireplace storytime with blankets solidity to it as well that PJ let go to focus and build upon that last age of the Elves melancholy feeling.
