THE ADVOCATE 627
VOL. 77 PART 4 JULY 2019
As another year’s Celebration of Light approaches and the
movie Tolkien plays in theatres, we take inspiration from the
fireworks spectacular in The Fellowship of the Ring:
There were rockets like a flock of scintillating birds singing with sweet
voices. There were green trees with trunks of dark smoke: their leaves
opened like a whole spring unfolding in a moment, and their shining
branches dropped glowing flowers down upon the hobbits, disappearing
with a sweet scent just before they touched their upturned faces. There
were fountains of butterflies that flew glittering into the trees; there were
pillars of coloured fires that rose and turned into eagles, or sailing ships,
or a phalanx of flying swans; there was a red thunderstorm and a shower
of yellow rain; there was a forest of silver spears that sprang suddenly
into the air with a yell like an embattled army, and came down again into
the Water with a hiss like a hundred hot snakes.
Let us set off some equally amazing fireworks on these pages in celebration
of the moves and accomplishments of our colleagues—firecrackers one and
all—at the bar and on the bench.
