Meditations on Mettarë

Today is mettarë, the last day of the elvish year (according to Hob's Calendar, anyway). It's mid-spring and the quickening of nature - early leaves and shoots, brilliant wildflowers, sudden gusty snowshowers - are giving way to the full transformation of a great, green season. It's time to set aside the stresses and unfinished projects, let them end, take a deep breath, and truly start anew.

Tomorrow is yestarë, the first day of the elvish new year. I have some exciting new plans for A Hobbit's Holiday... but that's business for the new year. All I can say is stay tuned, and enjoy the end of this wonderful past year.
