Day 7 ~ Galadriel (Tolkien Day)

A Look from the Fairelands (details and slurls after the pictures)

Day-7-Tolkien-face

Today the Fairelands celebrate J. R. R. Tolkien and his wildly absurd talents.  (The Hobbit was originally published in 1937 (!) and LOTR originally published in 1954 (!)

Let that sink in.  Wild-mad brilliance for the Ages, just like all of his characters – yet for me the one I’ve chosen to convey today is one of the most fair of any throughout all of Tolkien’s incredible lands.

Galadriel is her name and so aptly named.  As it turns out, the name “Galadriel,” Tolkien’s most beautiful of the Noble Elves, carries a meaning just as glorious:   “maiden crowned with a radiant garland” in Sindarin. Galadriel was a Noldorin elf princess renowned for her beauty and wisdom in J. R. R. Tolkien’s novels. The elements are galad “radiant” and riel “garlanded maiden”.  Alatáriel is the Quenya form of her name.”  (This from a neat site “Behind the Name:  Tolkien’s Characters” ).

She was fairly magical, Galadriel.  Likely one of the Eagles.  Always Present.  Always of Light and Courage and Love…just like everyone in these Fairelands.

On this day, in honor of that masterful worlds creator, get your Tolkien on:  be it dragon, hobbit, Ent, Elf, Wizard, Orc, dwarf, or any of the magnificent beings bringing his works to life.  Just like we all bring the Fairelands to life in Fellowship, each and every year.  Fly thee now!  Fly thee high and true!  Be Here Now in grand Fellowship of these glorious Fairelands and our quest to eradicate cancer from all worlds!

 Rise-Upward-by-Dale

 “The battle is now,” Sage spoke rapidly.  

“The way out is Through,” she said and in one swift movement, lifted the toaster onto her shoulder, rallied the other small creatures into extreme readiness, then looked with sharp evaluation at her friend who still knelt…living perhaps a bit too long there.

“The way out is through…and Up,” the flower seemed to add, stretching itself imperceptibly but enough for eyes to see.  Bloom’n blinked.  Once, then twice, then three times.  As if to clear her ears to hear the beautiful plant all the way down through to its roots and back up again, a journey which she was now convinced extended to the Heavens and the Wisest of Eternals.  As if in search of Galaxies, she studied each innocent yet ancient white-pink petal.  Then feeling her friend’s determined energy, Bloom’n looked up and met Sage’s eyes.

“We climb,”  Sage resolutely said.  Her eyes sparkled now.  “We cast off the skeletons of fear, remnants long overdue to be left behind.”

She extended her hand and firmly took Bloom’n’s hand.  

“We climb together,” Sage breathed.  “We climb all of us as one.  We climb now.”

Anansi (Beq Janus/Polysail) – Worldling Cradle

Because for every end there must be a beginning…  Once upon a time there were no Fairelands, no faires, a no stories to be told. It is said that the trickster god Anansi, stole the seeds of creativity from the sky gods, nurturing them into life, giving birth to the fairelands, casting them to the void winds as he flees the wrathful gods.  But such tales are for children aren’t they? …
