Shades of Grey
These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.
“Aren’t these Eleven cloaks just wonderful?” said Sam.
“But they are grey!” Pippin groaned. “Hobbits wear bright colours like green or yellow, not grey! Couldn’t they be dark green or brown or something? Anything but grey! They look like the sky when it’s going to rain!”
“Scorn not the Lady Galadriel’s gifts,” said Aragorn. “These cloaks are woven by the lady herself and her handmaidens. They are imbued with elven magic and their colour changes with the light shielding us from unfriendly eyes.”
Pippin held his cloak up to the light. “Maybe it’s not so grey after all,” he conceded.”
Happy Halloween to a special friend who is a joy to know.
