Re: goldberry

I don't think that Tom is Eru, because I think Eru would have a more broad personality: silly like Bombadil, wise like Gandalf, solemn like Elrond, funny like Sam, etc. The argument that Tom Bombadil is Aule is a very good one, but I got the impression that all the Valar stayed in Arda, exept for maybe Ulmo who dwelt in the depths of the Sea. My personal opinian that he is a lesser Maia, but the argument that he is an embodyment of the nature, an Earth-god is also very strong.

<marquee>'Were there any oliphaunts?' asked Sam, forgetting his fear in his eagerness for news of strange places. 'No, no oliphaunts. What are Oliphaunts' said Gollum.</marquee></p>
