I tried to scour the web, but in vain...

Does anyone know of a translation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, or at least the first article:

"All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood"

Hello friends,

I have made some updates to my Tengwar transcriber (http://arno.org/tengwar/), including more accurate Sindarin and Quenya modes, as well as a brand new English Phonemic mode (for Northern American English). It also incorporates the latest version of Eldamo, so you can use it as your everyday dictionary :)

On a related note, I'm thinking of giving it a more creative name than "Tengwar Transcriber". How about Tecendil? Would that be an accurate neologism for it?

Looking forward to your feedback!

Best,
Arno.

Last night I saw thunder. I was watching the sun set from the south rim of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison when a storm started approaching from the west. Soon, two other storms appeared, north and south. For a couple hours thunder clapped in the distance, giving me an exceptional light show.

We rarely have storms in the Bay Area, and even more rarely thunderstorm, this is the first time I've captured thunder.

Last Sunday, sunset at Alamere Falls.

Alamere Falls, along with McWay Falls, further south near Monterey, is one of two tidefalls in California: a waterfall flowing directly into the ocean.
