Bag End to Rivendell, Day 15 of 28

GEMS 1.32

Oct. 7 – Day 15 (1st from Weathertop): 19 miles

(7 Oct – 15th Day from the Shire – Dawn) In the night, the Nazgûl attacked. I couldn’t find Mr. Frodo, then I heard him cry out as from far away — strange words they were! Then, when he appeared, he was bad hurt! Strider fought the cursed things off. At full light, we made our way down to the Great Road. As we crossed, we heard the Riders and ran into the brambles. We camp here tonight. Strider says Mr. Frodo’s wound came from a Morgul-blade and is cursed!

Photo – Pine Barrens, NJ – 2013 – 4th Annual Running for Joy 5k).  Don’t forget, we would LOVE to feature YOUR photos for Gems.  The Walk to Rivendell series (which ends 13 Oct) needs photos.  It’s the only time of the year (probably) I’ll send out 7-days/week photos.  The upcoming months need photos as well or paintings and/or quotes, lyrics, poems, sketches, jokes… creativity!  Gems (fka Rx-for-Healing) is tied to Under 1000 Skies which is tied to Volunteer Biographers: “When we show each other what we find beautiful, we get a glimpse into each others hearts.”
