Class of '02 v4: 2017 - now we are 15

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

*Opens the door and enters slowly*

Hello?

It is good to see some familiar faces here as it has been too long. Vana your post on FB on oldtoby saddened me deeply and reminded me of how special TORC was to me. Many good times and good memories here.

Kaya, glad to know your pirate is still around and does he still have his parrot?

Can someone explain to me what I need to do to get rid of that 3rd party hosting picture and replace it with a proper one?
Image

So True the Arrow, So Steady the Hand

No word in your quiver goes errant,
no thought from your bow is misspent,
no image falls short of your target,
so true are the arrows thus sent.
Your heart with a steady compunction
pulls the bowstrings few others could ply,
your story does more than just function--
your steady hand helps my heart fly!

Thank you Parm for your wonderful poem. :heart:

I love the gladness in this place
I love the hugs when grief draws near,
I love the laughter, thunder-strong,
I love the friend who wipes each tear.
I love this place, and ever shall,
I love the roads that bring me back.
I love and love and love much more,
for joy that does not ever lack.

Blessings,
Parm :-)

Apparently my post didn’t go through last week. Just an excuse to return to these hallowed halls.

I shall be 17 next Thursday; and the week after that I’ll turn 38.

I wanted to take a moment to tell you all how blessed I am to have come to this place.

I treasure the memories, and I was lucky to find lifelong friends whose love, support and presence (close or far) have guided me through the path from a scared, awkward young tween to the woman, wife and mother I am today.

With us still or on the other side of Night, you are all like “a handprint on my heart”. And for that I thank you.

Hugs and much love from France
Never forgetting those who have passed into the West :rose:

Who can say if I've been changed for the better?
But because I knew you
I have been changed for good.


It's funny how some distance
Makes everything seem small
And the fears that once controlled me
Can't get to me at all
It's time to see what I can do
To test the limits and break through
No right, no wrong, no rules for me
I'm free

Hi Eari!! (And Frelga, too!)

I turned 17 and I missed it. I did get to hang out with Jewelsong for a day right around that time, though, so I'll take it. :D

I've been having a lot of feelings lately about how lucky I was to find TORC when I did and how instrumental it was in my life and development. A lot of nostalgia which -- as I'm sure many of you know -- originally referred to not just general longing for days past but specifically to homesickness, and TORC really was my true home for many years. It's not anymore. And that's not a bad thing -- my home is my family and my kids now, as it should be -- but I do miss it and probably always will.

Also nowhere on the internet is there a smiley as good as :whistle:

Hello my fellow class mates of 2002.

It just seems so unbelievable that we have had TORC as a home for so very long!

Eari congratulations on the new addition on it's way to your home. When are you due? I do not remember. I am getting old after all!!

Luthie your children are growing up so fast!! I remember meeting you and Eari in Toronto! What a great week of memories!

Frelga how great to see you again!! I pray life is treating you well!

Brother PARM you are always a light unto our paths!! Miss you my brother and give my love to Mrs. PARM!

I can only hope that more of our class will appear and say Hello once more!!

Hello...

I love this place, and all you guys. I never would have emagined I would stick with a forum this long, but something about this place and everybody here just always keeps me coming back! And we are talking all the way through the angst of the teens and the busy crazyness of the twenties and into the thirties.

Back in the day I joined three or four writing forums and all the rest are long gone and sunk into the mire of expired domains and url errors. Something about Tolkien just seems to endure.

Good times, folks, seriously good times.

It's the weather, no doubt - gastly, rainy, windy... perfect cocoon weather, just how I love it. :D But it makes me want to go home, even though I'm sitting in it right now, huddled up in a fleece sweater and with a cup of tea nearby. I guess this means this always was kind of a home to me, no matter what. Miss the old days. Miss the writing sessions and being able to go on hardly no sleep for months in a row (now I get headaches if I even so much as try to have a couple of nights with less than 7 hrs :roll:). Miss the connection there was, the drive that pushed us, even though I'm still in touch with many I've met through these boards. Miss not having those silly disturbances in the body with more 17 years under my belt than I did when I joined, too. :roll:

Anyways, my laptop still remembered my password (PHEW! Because otherwise it would have been safely protected by my own amnesia :rofl:) and I wanted to say hello to each and all while snooping around. Hope you all are well and happy! :)

It's weird to think we have gone another year now. Let's see we all joined some 18 years or so ago!! We were so young and scared and now we are ol.... never mind! We are not scared anymore, I don't think anyways. But we are wiser or try to be it seems. :D Waving at everyone!!!
