Elwing Bearing the Silmarill by peet

'Thus Maedhros and Maglor gained not the jewel; but it was not lost. For Ulmo bore up Elwing out of the waves, and he gave her the likeness of a great white bird, and upon her breast there shone as a star the Silmaril, as she flew over the water to seek Eärendil her beloved.'

JRR Tolkien: The Silmarillion: Chapter 24: Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath

Missed The Boat


Modest Mouse- Missed The Boat

in a day,

to come back to you.

I think wolf may be my spirit animal. This is what I think of when I'm lying drunk on the grass at 1am In Australia


That’s fine. You are sentient matter clinging to (what has arbitrarily been designated) the underside of a spinning wet orb whirling around a fireball at the outer edge of a blizzard of stars that is hurtling through the infinite void of space. There is nothing you could think about, no flight of fancy you could entertain, that would make you or your situation any odder than it is.
