-FR.Mirror “They remained some days in Lothlórien, so far as they could tell or remember. All the while that they dwelt there the sun shone clear, save for a gentle rain that fell at times, and passed away leaving all things fresh and clean. The air was cool and soft, as if it were early spring, yet they felt about them the deep and thoughtful quiet of winter. It seemed to them that they did little but eat and drink and rest, and walk among the trees; and it was enough.” (~p.6)
– The time spent in Caras Galadhon is very relaxing for the Company, and they do little other than eat, drink, and rest.

Notes: The little note about “so far as they could tell or remember” is actually quite interesting. One gets the sense that time does not flow in quite the same way within the confines of Lothlórien, something that could be related to its status as a safe haven and refuge from the rest of Middle Earth. ~Tom
