Caras Galadhon

Haarland —

My greetings from Lothlórien!

I wished to show you my home, because I saw your enthrallment at the beauty of Rivendell.  Here, Thalya and I sitting near the fountains close to the center of Caras Galadhon, our city.  In the background, high in the mellyrn are the telain (platforms) upon which we live.  Few Humans have seen this place – if only I could show you.

This was my whole world, before I left, and before and met you.  I look unfamiliar in silken robes, and I rather wonder if you would recognize me.  The long years of my life have been spent in our insular realm among these trees and gardens, existing in quiet, peaceful solitude.  But now, with all I’ve seen and done, I feel so out of place.  I cannot stay here.

I hope that you are well and happy in Rivendell.  I may return sooner than you think – I seem to be traveling far and quickly, in recent days.
