Spring 2009 Update [May. 7th, 2009|09:03 pm]
galadriels_den
I hope that this entry finds you all well and happy. We are enjoying the wonderful weather here in Lorien and the twins are growing like ivy, very fast. Our little family has been doing quite a bit outdoors, walking in the wood, evenings by the lake and picnics together. It is wonderful when winter's grip releases and the land springs to life again. I never lose the wonder of that. It makes me feel young again.

It has been peaceful here on the borders and all seems quiet, not much happening. The Galadhrim maintain their vigilance with their usual skill and bravery under the lead of my Uncle Fingolfin with other brave warriors. There will always be a need for fighting strength here, this side of the sea but I hope the quiet continues.

Come and visit if you like or post your news.

I am always around for tea.

Yours,

Galadriel

Winter has settled... [Jan. 25th, 2009|08:56 pm]

It has been many months since I have written here and I find the days pass quickly though we are in the midst of a long cold winter. Days are chill, nights are long and our little family is going well here in Lothlorien.

We passed the holiday with visits and presents in the usual manner and now we are hopeful of an early spring to thaw the hard ground and bring the flowers back to the forest floor.

I am hopeful that all of you are doing well and are healthy and happy in all that you do. We would love visitors to our home and welcome you at any time.

I hear the twins have awoken from their napping and so must run. I will be sure to write again soon.

Be well.

A mid-summer update... [Jul. 6th, 2008|07:53 pm]

I wish to say hello to all and bring you greetings from Lorien in summer. The Golden Wood is dappled in sunshine, the breeze is gentle and warm and we are all well and happy here at home. The children grow strong as we pursue summer activities. It is nice to live in times of peace where only a few skirmishes on the border trouble the realm and are easily handled. I hope this message finds you well and happy yourself.

We are spending much time at the lake with Ecthelion and Fingolfin, swimming with the twins and enjoying that quite a bit. We picnic in the evenings. Luthien sends her regards and is quite busy with the darlings. They grow each day and show such promise.

Enjoy your summer and come for a visit if you should like to. We are moving nearer to family and to a bigger place. We have fast outgrown this one.

Cheers to you all and be well.

The wood is delightful this time of year as winter lets go its hold and the first bloom of spring begins. I know that Lothlorien is a sheltered place but one can feel the passing of the seasons. More birds, the flowers on the forest floor. It is lovely.

I hope that you all are well and happy this time of year.

We are and nothing much to report. The children are growing and we run to catch them.

Be well and do come for a visit.

Well, it is the new year and I have a host of things to do. So very busy here. What with the very rambuctious twins here, my darling Luthien and the responsibilities thrust upon me by ruling Lorien again. Yes, I am out of retirement as they say. I love the Golden Wood and so I seek to preserve its beauty and healing quietness. Should you have any matters for the realm, I can be found at the palace a few days a week on administrative matters.

My brother, Aegnor, came by today and it was a lovely, albeit bizarre visit. He brought with him a small creature which he assured me was a dog. Small fluffy white thing. He said Turgon had it on loan from someone and they had the care of it. He seems quite attached to it. I know how my brother is. Oh dear. He used to keep pet spiders and things when we were young. I fear he will grow attached to little Fifi and not be able to give her back to her rightful owners. She is a nice dog, I can report and very well behaved. She can sit, lie down and roll over on command.

Luthien says hello to you all. The twins have her quite busy as they are toddling now. Where they toddle we must follow.

Do keep in touch and Spring will be here before you know it.

A greeting to you from Luthien, the twins and myself here in Lorien.

We have spent the season quietly here and are preparing to move to a bigger home when the weather gets warmer. We will continue to live in Lorien as I have leadership responsibilities now, but we need more space as the little ones grow bigger and will no doubt need their own rooms before long.

Blessings of the season upon you and please visit if you are inclined. Our home is always open.

Yours,

I Didn't Know I Was Looking for Love

I was alone thinking I was just fine
I wasn't looking for anyone to be mine
I thought love was just a fabrication
A train that wouldn't stop at my station
Home, alone, that was my consignment
Solitary confinement
So when we met I was skirting around you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, honey
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby
Didn't know I was looking for love
Didn't know I was looking for love

Cause there you stood and I would
Oh I wonder could I say how I felt
And not be misunderstood
A thousand stars came into my system
I never knew how much I had missed them
Slap on the map of my heart you landed
I Didn't know I was looking for love
I was coy but you made me candid
And now the planets circle around you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby
Didn't know I was looking for love
Didn't know I was looking for love

So we built from here with love the foundation
In a world of tears, one consolation
Now you're here, there's a full brass band
Playing in me like a wonderland
And if you left I would be two-foot small
And every tear would be a waterfall
Soundless, boundless, I surround you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you

I just didn't know

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love (I just didn't know)
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love (Oh, I just didn't know)
Didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby
Didn't know I was looking for love
Didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you, baby

I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
Didn't know I was looking for love
Didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you
I didn't know I was looking for love
Until I found you...

[Current Music |Laughter in the other room]

It seems as though I can chart the seasons through this journal. I do not have time to write on a daily basis, though with the twins here, I really should. Little notes for them and what they do. Luthien is not a journal keeper. I do not believe that she has the patience for such things. At times she does, but not with any frequency or regularity.

I find myself once again with the responsibility in Lorien. I am its sole guardian. Well I do have the help of Fingolfin and Glorfindel in that regard and Haldir, of course. I welcome this and am comfortable with this. Lothlorien is timeless in its beauty and so very peaceful. We defend her well. For now we are here but who knows how long that will be? One cannot tell these things.

So the twins are getting more mobile. Alphiriel pulled herself to her feet today and bounced on her toes. I think she is getting ready to walk. Caladrin watched her with fascination on his face and I think he will be a close second to her in this. We are going to have to chase them around here once that begins....they will be VERY active elflings. I do not imagine they will give us one minute's rest.

I would not give it up for a moment.

Time passes all around us in the mortal lands but as always, things seem ageless here. Come by for a visit. We always welcome you.

Personal Journal

So our life settles into the summer pattern here in Lothlorien. We mark our days by the rising and setting of the sun and the length of the days. Evenings are especially pleasant, as a cool breeze wafts through our overly filled talan and sets us at ease. Luthien might be reclining on the sofa and the twins might be playing on the carpet with their toys. We are a little family the four of us and though I have known family before this is no less precious than what has come before. I will raise these children to the best of my ability and to be strong elves in their own right.

Lately, I have noticed that there is a closeness between Caladrin and Alphiriel that seems to happen in elvish twins. It is the case with Elladan and Elrohir and so it was with Elrond and Elros and Amrod and Amras. This closeness of spirit and an implicit understanding between them. These elflings are very young yet but you can see it in them. They pass things to one another without any indication...and come to each other without a sound. I believe that their minds are communicating to one another, without the ability to speak yet, they are already talking to each other without words. When one wakes up, the other does too...when one is hungry, so is the other. They seem to be attuned to the other's needs and wants and they seem reflective of each other.

It is wonderful to behold but something that one must be aware of in raising a twin. This is a bond that must be treated with respect and thoughtfulness.

As I sit here writing this evening, these are just my thoughts for my journal.

This weekend we ushered in the newest addition to our family. Mari and Ingo's little girl was born late on Friday night. I assisted with the birthing. Mari was very brave and so was my brother. They did marvelously.

The little golden blossom as her mother name means, has all her toes and all her fingers and is a beautiful little baby. She is full of promise and light.

Welcome little one.

After all that talk of a party, we decided on a quiet holiday at home. Just our little family and whomsoever decides to stop by. Our home is always open to anyone who wishes to join us.

There were toys and many gifts for the twins and a few things for each of us. I cooked and we had moments of peace together.

Happy Yule to all of you and may your New Year be bright.

It will be our first Yule here with the babes, Caladrin and Alphiriel. I think back on the times with my own daughter and remember what fun that was. They are growing so fast, these little ones. Before we know it they will walk, talk and be out of the talan running us in circles.

Each day here with Luthien, I hold to my heart like the precious gift it is. Our bond grows stronger and we grow to know each other more and more. It is uncanny how she can sense things I am feeling without me saying or doing anything. I suppose that is how it is for mates. You just know. I know with her too. That is how we are.

I am still planning our ceremony. I must see my father soon to work on some details for it. I think my uncle can help too. They are both good at these things. It will be something to remember.

All of you enjoy the season that is upon us. May your Yuletide be bright.

I have found the internet access here and Luthien is sleeping in our beachside bungalow. We tried parasailing today. Ohhh what fun that was. You fly up in the air and go over the water and weeeeeeee! You all would love that. Anyways...I took a picture of Luthien up in the air, not that you can really see her but you get the idea of what it is all about.

Here are some shots of where we are staying. You can see why we may not be back for a while.

Lots of love,

The twins, Alphiriel and Caladrin, are in the very capable care of Orophin and Celegorm. I am not worried one wit about them though I left very careful instructions in the form of a daily schedule and list of things to do should they need it. I expect all will be well. I like to plan for any contingency. *nods*

So I am knee deep in wedding preparations. I go to the palace each day to use Celeborn's high speed connection and web surf. I have really gotten the hang of this computer thing and have been surfing away. You can find anything you want on this internet thing. Caterers, musicians, flowers....you name it. For someone as computer-shy as me, this is really quite amazing. I love that google thing. You just type in a word and it is like magic of some kind....everything just pops right up there.

I will need to see my adar sometime soon. I am getting close to making decisions on things and he is just the one to help narrow things down. I want to consult with him on every detail. I also heard that my Uncle Fingolfin has planned many a party so I might ask his help too. It could not hurt. They get along so well, it will work to have their assistance.

I love my Luthien and I will be sure to plan the most elegant wedding ever.

[Current Music |The sound of my quill.....]

*Personal Journal*

I have been nervous of late and just now realized the source of it.

I have hidden the ring in a good place so that Luthien cannot find it but I want to give it to her. I want the moment to be special, for this is one of the most important things I have ever done. I will bond with my chosen partner and I want everything to be perfect. That is just the thing.....so much whirls in my mind that I lie awake worrying about it.

I had worked my self up into a good lather the other day and had to go see my uncle in his office. He, of anyone, would understand. I mean who has more mates than he? Except maybe Celeborn, perhaps? He would understand the ways of the heart. Well it was good I did, he made me feel better for certain. If left to my own devices my thoughts will escalate to grand proportions.

First thing he did was laugh at my state. A good laugh. I was a bit peeved at first, I must tell you. Being laughed at by Nolofinwë is quite annoying. I gave him my best Lady of Light glare but he did not stop. He got tears in his eyes, I kid you not. He could tell I was getting steamed so he finally stopped, wiping his eyes. Then he said the most simple, profound thing that I took to my heart.

"If you love her, it will all work out perfectly. There is no wrong or right of it."

I sat up straight at that and mulled his words over in my mind.

"Stop thinking, Artanis and just love her."

I sighed and smiled at him the weight of all my worry slipping off my shoulders. I love my uncle, I really do. I gave him a big hug and then we planned a wonderful evening for Luthien complete with food, flowers, candles and the works. My darling love will not know what hit her. Nolo is turning into quite the chef, and gave me recipes and everything.

I was in a much better mood when I left and my plan was set. I always like to have a plan. I think that runs in the family.

Finally something worthy to grace her beautiful, elegant finger. It is custom made and elvish and oh so lovely. I got it with sapphires to match the ring she has given me.

[Current Music |All is quiet....]

All is blessedly quiet as I write this and the afternoon fades into evening.

The babes are fed, and changed and sleep curled around each other in their crib, inseparable as always. They even link hands together, as though afraid someone will try and pull them apart as they sleep. They will be close through their lives, this brother and sister. I can feel it. It is the fate of twins to be so....

I sit and gaze upon Luthien sleeping and fancy there is a halo of light around her. I know it is just the trick of the setting sun through the trees and the window but it looks quite magical. Who would have thought my life would take such a turn? I am thankful for every precious moment with my love. She is mercurial, she is beautiful.....and she is love personified.

I can feel things happening. Troubled times ahead. We must be stronger than we know we can. The future is not clear but there is evil afoot. Some vile force at work. It is shrouded in darkness and I can feel the terror of those who live here.

I have promised Celeborn not to look in my mirror but....light must win out over darkness. We have the light of the Valar on our side and must remember to use it. Those of us who are reborn must remember.

Luthien and I had a chance recently to get out on a little date of sorts. We went out to that Tree-top Café….or whatever it is called and had some lovely food and gossip…*coughs* conversation…..

We did not spend that much time worrying about the twins and Orophin did swimmingly as a babysitter. We will avail ourselves of his services again, I am sure.

It was a glorious weekend. My lovely Luthien gave birth to not one, but two lovely babes. She was incredibly strong and preservered through it all. The ellons, Celegorn and Beleg Strongbow stayed by her side bravely and were not phased by an elleth in labor. And we all know how that can be. Things are said, declarations made. *coughs* You can not take anything a female in labour says seriously.

The babies are beautiful. They have all their fingers and all their toes and cried like little banshees the moment they were born. The first child born was female and she is named Alphiriel which means "swan-maiden". She is an elegant one and destined for love and happiness in her life. The boy-child's name is Caladrin which means "rememberance of light". And indeed the light of the Valar shone in his eyes. He is a little pistol that one and destined to test those around him with the strength of his personality. Definitely like one of his adars.

So all are resting comfortably and we have settled into a schedule of diaper changings and feedings. Babies are such a delight and twins are a handful. But these are a special pair and shall be close in all things. They sleep together as they did in the womb, so close that they cannot be separated.

All in all it was a very satisfying outcome. I am most content.

No time to write really.

Luthien is giving birth and I must to her aid. I will tell you more later. Uncle Nolo is here to take me to her. Thank goodness he will carry this huge bag of supplies. I might have overdone it there. Though you can never be too prepared for things.

I am nervous and excited at the same time.

I was visited in the middle of the night by my love, Celeborn. At first I thought I was dreaming but then I awoke to the bliss of being with him again. My silver tree....

Love under Ithil's light....Collapse )

My life is forever changed..... [Jan. 7th, 2006|06:47 pm]

From before Yule….

A while ago I was standing in the Golden Wood, deep in contemplation and
the elf maid, Luthien came upon me as I struggling to figure things out. Neither of us had ever loved another in this manner before. She has changed my life and I have found my heart again. This is an accounting of our meeting at that time. I am just now updating my journal and want to write it down for posterity. It is very important to me. This changes everything for my heart and I feel the Valar have sent her to me. She heals me and makes me feel whole again.

Meeting Luthien again and my heart is captured...Collapse )

Things to do.... [Jan. 6th, 2006|11:30 am]

My love needs me. She must prepare for the arrival of her baby and we must get things. I have been shopping a little and found her some necessary items already. I have been developing a list of things and want her to have the very best of everything. Here is my preliminary draft:

Cradle
Changing table
Carpet for nursery
Rocking chair
Diapers (disposable or cloth? ask Luthien)
Diaper service?
Baby clothes
Baby caps
Baby wipes
Trash can for dirty diapers
Baby quilt
Sheets
Receiving blankets
Thermometers
Stuffed animals
Mobile for above the cradle
Rattles

This is just a start. I have found a cradle and think it is perfect. I got it as I did not want anyone else to get it. The staff at the palace looked at me strangely as I had it delivered and I had to explain that no, I was not expecting. It is lovely, is it not? *gushes* I am very excited about the arrival of this elfling.
