Inaugural Post: Hope and Warning

I am by no means the equal or near the stature of Gandalf--or his real world counterparts, all of whom shall be making their own appearance on this blog. But I can promise to fulfill a similar function here. I offer hope and warning, assistance and alarm. For the times grow ever darker and the light masses for a counter blast in this time at the end of an age. All that Lewis and Tolkien, Chesterton and Pius IX, Our Lady of Fatima and J. K. Rowling, different artists of all sorts, different figures from different vantage points, have foreseen, are watching, and we are all living--this shall be what populates these pages. “Be merry! We meet again. At the turn of the tide. The great storm is coming, but the tide has turned.”
