I must go down to the sea again…

‘Sometimes’, Gimli thought, ‘I wonder about some of these Valar – except Lord Aulë, of course.’

‘I mean,’ he continued to himself, ‘Legolas is meant to be a hero – we helped save Middle Earth, they say. Surely this never ending longing is a cruel trick to play on one who did such a service?’

He looked at the tall figure of his friend, hair wind-whipped, boots salt encrusted from standing at the edge of the tide, gazing out to sea.

Gazing East; East from this shore of Tol Eressëa, out over the blue-grey sea, longing, now, for the family left behind.
