Subject: [mythsoc] Re: Starting a Tolkien Society Smial in Atlanta
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....
