Dear Ringers and Tolkienites,
I’ve just found out through his owner’s Facebook page that Blanco, better known to all of us as Shadowfax, has passed away. He became very ill in late March and after two weeks at a veterinary hospital for horses, he was finally put to sleep. Cynthia, his owner, who loved him dearly, did all she could and was with him when he went. She is in a very difficult place now, having lost her good friend and having to pay for his medical bills.
I think it’s safe to say that the Tolkien community has been touched by this beautiful boy. He was everything we imagined Shadowfax to be, and a wonderful friend to Cynthia. She has set up a fundraiser to help pay for his treatment bills, as she’s having trouble financially dealing with other issues. If you have anything to spare, please donate to her, out of love and memory for this beautiful horse, who will live on forever in our hearts.
Rest Easy, Blanco. Thank You. ♥
Oh god someone send this to Sir Ian.
Oh No… :(

We Speak is a poster and blog campaign featuring ten young women who are speaking up about their relationships with mental health and how it informs their identities. Part of Launch: Stamps School of Art and Design’s Senior Thesis Exhibition at the University of Michigan, it will be featured at Work Gallery - Ann Arbor in the exhibition opening on Friday, April 18th from 6-9. The show will remain up through May 3rd.
In the past year, the ten young women featured in the poster portion of We Speak came face to face with the state of our mental health. Our stories, carefully and honestly written, are meant to start a conversation about a topic that many of us wish we could ignore. But these are our realities, and in sharing them, we want to start chipping away at the stigma that often keeps us feeling weak and alone.
In addition to the original ten participants, everyone is encouraged to consider sharing their own story about mental health. By contributing your experiences, you can help open the discussion about the importance of mental health and tear down the stigma that keeps it so hidden. By sharing this project, you can foster support.

I honestly cannot think of any better way to put the feeling of being a camp counselor into words.
Every once and a while, a bunch of notes pops up on this post. It warms my heart to know that other people are as touched by these words as I was the first time I heard them. So much has changed in the past two years since that night. Tears, smiles, pain, and joy…memories I’ll cherish and people I’ll never forget. Yet still these words remain as one of the most simple facts I’ve come to know. There’s a reason a piece of my heart will always stay at camp.
if my kids don’t go this hard i will be so disappointed
