      Alana,

      Many thanks for the note. You're _exactly_ the sort of
      person I'm trying to contact! Will be happy to add you
      to the contact list for the group. Have been debating
      with a couple of folks about the orientation of the group,
      and I'm convinced that focussing on Tolkien's philosophy/
      theology is the right way to proceed. To that end, am
      considering changing the tentative name of the group
      to "Andúnië", which, as I expect you know, was the
      haven which was the home of the Faithful during the
      waning days of Numenor.

      Please feel free to forward this note or other
      info about the group to others that you know who
      would be interested in joining us. I'll be happy
      to add them to the organizing email list....

      Sîdh,

      Jef
