March 31: Valinor

No holiday destination tops Valinor for adventure and luxury! Lounge on the beach at Alqualonde, hear Valmar's famous bell choir perform every hour on the hour, and relish the opulence of the art and culture of Tirion. The adventuresome will enjoy hiking and exploring the Pelori, the world's tallest mountain range, within a day's drive of Valinor's top tourist destinations. Cruises available from all major Elven cruise lines!

Today's Challenge:
"Against stupidity the gods themselves contend in vain."
Friedrich Schiller

Write a story or poem or create artwork that illustrates this quotation.

Valinor Passport Stamp Passport Stamp:

Well, everyone, this is it: the last challenge in our month-long event!

However, although we won't be posting anymore challenges, we still welcome late responses, and we will still gladly stamp passports for responses completed after the conclusion of the event. If you've completed all 31 challenges, if you could note this on your post when you complete today's challenge, it will let the mods who stamp passports double-check that we haven't missed any days for you. I'd encourage everyone with a passport to check that passport in about a week to make sure we haven't missed any stamps.

This event was truly an example of how many hands make light work. Many thanks to the mods of SWG (Rhapsody, Tarion, and Angelica) and MPTT (Dreamflower, Cathleen, and Pearl Took) for making an ambitious challenge seem almost easy to run to their overworked comod (me), who doubted her sanity in wanting to host a major event in the midst of her student teaching internship. From writing challenges to stamping passports every day, you made this event not only run but run smoothly--thank you!

Many thanks to all of our participants. Whether you wrote one challenge or thirty-one, we appreciate that you've shared your creativity with us and have continued to support this annual project.

Hope to see you all next year! :)
