It may be that we fled from the fear of the Dark, only to find it here before us, and nowhere else to fly to but the Sea.
Sador, The Children of Húrin, JRR Tolkien
Isil was first wrought and made ready, and first rose into the realm of the stars, and was the elder of the new lights, as was Telperion of the Trees. Then for a while, the world had moonlight, and many things stirred and woke that had waited long in the sleep of Yavanna. The servants of Morgoth were filled with amazement, but the Elves of the Outer Lands looked up in delight; and even as the Moon rose above the darkness in the west, Fingolfin let blow his silver trumpets and began his march into Middle-earth, and the shadows of his host went long and black before him.
The Silmarillion, J.R.R. Tolkien
there’s nothing like warm summer nights and the words of Tolkien and that feeling that you sometimes get that this must be the first time the moon has ever risen and that all the night flowers that have never bloomed before must be unfurling for the first time to make you feel at home wherever you are.
