And blessed too be the laborious Who share the Creator's inspiration Who ever 'gainst sloth are victorious And bring mere thoughts to realisation They share in the joy of the One Above, By seeing their visions all come to be Their efforts and labours in service of Dreams of the future only they can see For even in rest their minds will go on Observing and ordering all they see For in this labour is where they belong And in these processes, they become free   So here's to those with the Eyes of the One   Who'll finally rest once the deed is done.

Sonnet #35
Sin o' sins that are a part of all men, For no man here on Earth is born without For the sin in us starts at life's begin For 't is from sin that our learning did sprout Though don't fear from me 'ny condemnation For sentence be passed by those clean of soul And though I tried, sin ne'er passed my station So frankly I'd too hold a sinner's role Yet Sin, as granted by the LORD above, Does serve but one goal, despite all the woe: Which is in its essence to learn thereof To have men learn, and have Man itself grow   I face woe and sorrow so I might learn   So I can move on with the growth I'd earn.

He pulls back his cloak and checks the package he carries hidden under it. A cold tremor runs down his spine, when he turns the elongated package in his hands. “I didn’t want this…” he murmurs, with tears running down his cheeks. “Good Almother, please let me deliver this without dying! Let me survive this! I beg you!” He

New project: a real LotR riddles book
New project: LotR riddle book! Recently, I have finished my 200th Lord of the Rings riddle, inspired by Bilbo and Gollum's Game of Riddles from The Hobbit. Long have I pondered what to do with them, aside from uploading them weekly to my deviations. In the end, I have decided to turn them into one word file, print them, and bind them into a book! :D So in the coming months, I will be posting updates on the book, tutorial style, to show you all my process of bookmaking. There is 1 thing though: What will the leather cover be like? I have been thinking about having Tolkien's monogram pressed into the cover, but I am not yet quite sure abo
