"Itís a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you donít keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."
- Bilbo Baggins

As we stand on a doorstep of the new year in December, our theme for this month is Doors.

It's at the green round door where we first meet Bilbo and begin our Middle-earth adventures. It's a dangerous business indeed, stepping out of them. The story takes you through many doors and gates: through the secret door in the Mountain leading to a dragon's den, through the password-protected Doors of Durin leading to Moria, through the Dark Door leading to the Paths of the Dead and the seven gates of Minas Tirith, until you finally get to the very Black Gate of Mordor. How different it is from the green round door where everything started!

A door or doorway symbolizes the transition and passageway from one place to another. It is both and entrance and an exit. An open door has been a long-time symbol of a new beginning. An open door shows that thereís a way out and can also provide a view of what lies ahead. A closed or locked door, on the other hand, can represent a dead end or create the feeling that thereís no way out. It is often used to symbolize the passage from one world to another in religion, mythology, and literature. You can use this symbolism in your story instead of an actual door or gate.

And the winners are:

A Glimpse through the Doorway by Linda Hoyland
Door to the Past by Darkover 2nd place
Escaping the Dark by Cassie Hughes 3rd place
Homecoming by Finfinfin 1st place
Mellon by lotrfn 3rd place

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach
