“A Short-Cut To Mushrooms” is nearly over. *sniffle* We’ve had such a great time planning this and making our plans a reality, and we hope that you’ve enjoyed it as much as we have. It’s been a marvelous experience for both of us (although we do have a list as long as the road to Mordor of things to do “after NaNo, after the blog party” :P).
But wait! It’s not quiiiiiite over yet. It’s now time to unveil the “special surprise” we’ve been telling you about! You see, we discovered that we have the same music book: a book of violin pieces from the LotR movies, with piano accompaniments (we both play violin, and Eowyn plays piano as well). So we got this crazy idea of putting one of the pieces together, and, somehow, we managed to work it out. Eowyn recorded the piano and sent it to Jane, who recorded the violin and sent it back. Then Eowyn made a video to match it.
So without further ado, may we present “In Dreams” by Miss Jane Bennet and Eowyn!
(At the time of the writing of this post, Eowyn is sick and can’t figure out how to post the video. So you’ll just have to run on over to Miss Jane’s blog and see it there! Terribly sorry.)
“And the ship went out into the High Sea and passed into the West, until at last on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air
and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
Personal message from Eowyn to Jane:
Thank you, dearest Jane, for giving me the opportunity to do this – especially the fact that I’ve been able to do this with YOU! I have had SUCH a blast – as you probably know from all the emails that have passed between us! I especially can’t believe we did ^THAT^. Gracious SAKES, it’s been a whirlwind of fun! We definitely need to do something huge like this in the future – oh, wait. WE ARE. 😀 Can’t wait to continue our friendship, knowing that, together, we’ve done something as crazy and fun as this. I also can’t wait to see what God has for your future with your writing, violin-playing, and everything else you’ve got going on!
Congratulations on your new status as Supergirl, Gollum. You absolutely and most positively deserve it!!! The video below is for you, girl.
CARRYING THE BANNER!!!
