So poignant, Linda. Thank you for it!

I haven't been on SoA for ages and I find this lovely vignette. The sensation of time speeding past as one ages is definitely something I notice :). Still as I recall, Aragorn still has another 40 years left at this point in the 4th age. Well written, I must get on with some of my unfinished stuff.

This was so well done. I've always seen Faramir as wise, curious, thoughtful, and scholarly, even as he became a soldier out of necessity and not preference or propensity like his brother. Boromir, somehow, I see as naturally drawn to soldiering, though I could be wrong. I wonder what he would have been if he'd been born into a different time?

Nice to think of the brothers' reunion.

My mind is as it always was, but my body lets me down.
I can certainly relate to this. In dreams, I shed my constraints, but then I wake, and time and reality fasten the shackles once more.

Men long for what lies beyond just as the Elves long for the sea that calls them home ... like a bird released from its cage.
Such a beautiful way to look at this topic.

This story is very close to my heart these days, as my father struggles to recover from injury at age 90 and likely face the loss of his independence at last. Like Faramir, he's surrounded by those who love him, and that's an important part of Eru's Gift as well.

This is a lovely, gentle story. It seems very right, somehow, that Arwen would have this conversation with Faramir, and that he would end up comforting her. I especially like the line "As you chose a mortal life, you too will feel that yearning to fly free from the Circles of the World." That's a beautiful thought.

I would also say, that this feels very appropriate for Thanksgiving Day (which it is, here in Canada). Thanks!

Love to read about Faramir and how calmly he approaches death. Would that we could all do that.

Namarie, God bless, Antane :)
