To Tell a Tale  by Lindelea 7 Review(s)

Oh my, this is a jewel in itself...I can hardly say which of these stories I like best so far, and I wouldn't like to say anyway (well, we don't like to sound like we are playing favorites do we?;)) But if I did like to say...well this would be definitely at the top of the list! Absolutely beautiful and perfect!

Likening Dwarves to geodes is a brilliant, beautiful idea.

Well done!

Thank you MTW :) I think it is true of many of us, that we look rather normal or unexciting on the outside but are full of sparkle on the inside. Elves should know better, but alas even they aren't perfect. Thank you so much for reading and responding.

This has been my favorite in the bunch, so far! Nice job! Jeodo

Oh...This brought back memories of my cousins and I using a chisel and hammer one summer to find crystals inside of stones. We found one w/crystals the colour of a beautiful summer sky. You can find treasures anywhere if you want to look hard enough for them. Loved the dwarf tale and Pippin's gift to Gimli.

What a satisfying little tale. Thanks for sharing it and loving this entire series of stories. :o)

I'm so glad this stirred pleasant memories of various rock hunts for people :) Your geode sounds like it was lovely. Thank you for your kind response Tigger :)

Oh, how lovely a fable of the Dwarves, and lovely the ability to see beneath the surface of the halfling. Thank you so.

Thank you :) I love the attention Gad gave to everything, the beauty in the common place things. I'm glad you liked it Larner :)

Oh this is wonderful Pearl. I spent a whole afternoon on a beach on the south coast of England last Summer looking for fossils. I didn't find any but ended up taking home a very ordinary stone to remind myself that withing each of us can be true beauty waiting to be revealed. So you could say this struck a real chord with me!

Thank you, harrowcat :) I'm glad it struck a chord. I used to spend my breaks at one job I had walking along, head down, looking for geodes in the landscaping rocks around the building. I looked really strange but I found some nice small sized geodes :) Thank you for reading and responding!
