Yes, I am still here - and amazingly I have reached this day without throwing this ?@!!$%*!/>!"#! computer through the window!! At least I know that if it gives up completely I do have everything important backed-up. Many thanks to everyone who left sympathetic comments after my last post - I've just realised that I never replied to any of them which was unforgiveable - but they were all appreciated:)
For anyone who is wondering about the next chapter of 'Journey', I have managed to get quite a lot of it done but it has been excruciatingly slow. The thing is, I do have a very good laptop but because I'm so disorganised I have some stuff on the laptop which is different to that on my desktop, though a lot of it is the same, and I have certain programmes I need on the desktop which aren't on the laptop and vice versa - I'm sure you get the picture. Anyway, enough whining - I'm pretty sure I'll get it posted in the next few days but in the meantime I bring you a rather late-in-the-day Froday post. I'm sure many of you bought the special edition of the ROTK soundtrack which included a rather lovely dvd, but there may be some who were later coming to the fandom who missed it. There is a section on it devoted to poems and songs from ROTK - I am posting some of the pics from this; these are not (gasp!!) all of Frodo, but they are all about him. When you see these on the dvd, they are accompanied by the music from 'The Grey Havens' and I find it incredibly emotional - so if you can try to imagine that playing ...
This beautiful image, which I'm sure most people have seen before, is also included.
There is a feature on 'Into The West' and Howard Shore also talks about the song 'Use Well The Days', also sung by Annie Lennox, which he describes as "part of the journey to 'Into the West'". While I agree that ITW is the best song for the end of ROTK, I do love Use Well The Days - Frodo's song for Sam. Some of the words are so heartbreaking - "I must go, must cross the sea, the love you gave is all I take with me" - "Turn your face to the green world, use well the days". *sniff*
I only seem to have a very small version of this:(
Have a lovely weekend all ~ hope to bring you 'Separate Paths' very soon:)
