...the life of our oldest one as we do every year. I will be back with more specifics of the celebration once we are at the day's end. In the meantime, I wanted to point you towards the touching poem that my SIL wrote for The Professor. The last stanza brought a lump to my throat and tear to my eye....

Yet pause one moment in the wood,
Before you take the greater way:
The old, you know, wish they had stood
In Lórien, just one more day.


  1. Happy Birthday to the Professor! I can't wait to hear all about his special day!

    Thanks for sharing the link to the poem. What a beautiful gift!
