The World Did Not End Today




So, those of you that were hiding away in you Apocolypse-proof caves, it is safe for you all to come out
again now.

There was a great storm blowing in this morning, though, so I work to a red sky. I could see it burning through the twining black boughs of pine outside the window. Nerd that I am, I looked at it and thought, "A red sun rises. Blood has been spilled this night." The wind was sweeping down the mountains, and roaring through the pines.... So I have had this song stuck in my head all day:


I spent most of the day humming it to myself, and singing it in as deep a voice as I could manage. I sounded nothing like a dwarf, of course, but what with the wildness of the wind and the roaring of the trees, I wanted very much to run away from work, and go adventuring.

Doctor? Doctor *WHO*? (heh heh) He has my thanks... I think.

I have been replaying it. And replaying, and replaying, and replaying. And singing it. And humming it. And playing it on the lowest notes of the flute. And listening to *covers* of. I need to have all 20 odd verses of that poem sung by Thorin and Co.
