Re: My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

So, that night I went to bed without having done my homework and that caused me enormous anxiety. To tell the truth, I was desperate. It wasn’t the first time it happened, and this time - I seem to remember - there was even going to be an oral exam. I should have studied for it, but I didn’t. I coul...

Re: Songs not just mine

And then there was another kind of songs: the ones I read in the books by J.R.R. Tolkien (which I discovered only at 16) and, somehow, I recognized . When I saw the lyrics, the melody - often along with images and feelings - slowly came to my mind, as if it were just hidden in my memory. In a coupl...

Songs not just mine

[...]You have to know that, since I was only 6, I used to sing those that my mother called “my songs”. She has always assumed that they were invented songs, because the lyrics were, well, weird. I didn’t sing in any known language, people around me often said I sang “in gibberish”. Deep down inside...

Re: My songs

And here is another one ! :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAPQIvHtSZU&t=10s This one is a lullaby. As always, I'll put the original text first and its English translation below.

Re: My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

Note: you have to know one more thing. Since I was 6 my parents and many people around me have been telling me that I had “grown-up thoughts” and a “grown-up way of speaking”. This has nothing to do with me thinking about my wallet (at the age of 12 I had a baby wallet and I kept it at home most of ...

My first encounter with Lada Haldeson and what followed

For all of you who don't know, my name is Simone and I come from Italy. I am a simple person: I love languages, music, books (especially the ones not talking about our world, which I consider ugly and depressing) and horseriding. I am the kind of person who likes to go hiking in the mountains and to...

Those posts will haunt me forever! :sorry: I don’t think it’s that dramatic ;) In fact, I was being ironic... :) Sorry, I haven’t had time yet to move things around. Will do as soon as I have the opportunity. I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly thank you for taking the time to create the ...

Re: Gondolin music

When you feel like it, it will be a pleasure to know better your position on the non-quantifiable data contained in the Silmarillion . :) What makes me curious is, in particular, the possibility that your journeys (as well as those of the old hands) have led you to witness the aspect of elements whi...

Re: Gondolin music

Perception of the Eldar is certainly possible when I Journey to Valinor via Trance. [...] IV was originally started as a Valar-specific trance Journeying group I must say that what you say here is extremely interesting. :) I would like to know more about your journeys, if you don't mind revealing a...

Re: Gondolin music

It seems very unfair that science has the power to make many people think that something I talk about is not possible when science itself cannot explain why it should not be possible. This surely causes me frustration. This is the way I see modern science: it rules out everything it cannot explain, ...

Re: Gondolin music

You also ran up against one of Dave Woosley's (my real name) axioms, specifically: "I believe nothing; I perceive everything" It is most curious that this is the very same axiom on which the culture Lada introduced me to is based. And she said it is the current Eldarin culture. And all the memories...

Re: Gondolin music

Looks like I've definitely overestimated people's proclivity to take it for granted. I kept telling "this is a personal experience" or "these are memories" and I, maybe naively, thought it would suffice... But Lúthien told me that it didn't, that people kept taking what I told as being presented as ...
