Happy new year, everybody!
- "Above all shadows rides the Sun,
And Stars forever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
Nor bid the Stars farewell."
-- Tolkien, "Return of the King", Ball.pap.,p.226
Despite the grim forecasts, there is always hope lying in the deepest
desires of the human spirit as they join with those of Eru Iluvatar.
In that spirit, happy new year, everyone!
