My greetings from the high plains of Eregion once again. Though I have been wandering here with my thoughts for a while, and the beauty of the sun setting against the clouds has lightened my spirits a little. I must admit, begrudgingly, that I have been rather lonely of late. Thalya has taken her leave of me, presumably to return to her home in the Grey Havens on personal business – though I had no time to ask… And I doubt I would have been given an answer.
Before I returned to the wind-swept plains here, I had been idly passing the time in Rivendell, but there was nothing for me there. This lingering melancholy loneliness feels alien. Even though I honestly do not know very much about Thalya – she keeps her thoughts to herself – her absence has affected me in ways unforseen. I feel as though I cannot not admit this to her upon her return, though something within me drives me to do so.
Namärie. I hope you are in good health and spirits in Lóthlorien.
