The Road Goes Ever On And On...

I'm setting forth on a great journey, again, one I've taken many times before. Yet along that road I find new wonders and fantastic places each time I set out.

The journey of which I speak is the journey to Middle-earth. Starting with The Silmarillion, I will be traveling in Tolkien's land again, and as always, I'm excited to set out.

As Bilbo once said, "It's a dangerous business, going out of your door. You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to."


  1. Happy Journeys...Greet the elves for me. I long to enter Elrond's valley at dusk to hear the elves sing at the height of summer.

  2. Oh, what fun! I was about to say I envy you, but of course nothing's stopping me from doing the same...

  3. While with Bilbo, may you enjoy the honeycomb of Bjorn, evade the spiders, and safely hide from Smaug.

    When you travel with Frodo, enjoy a song and a story with Tom Bombadil and give my respects to Aragorn.

    Journey safely, my friend!

  4. Me, I can hardly wait for the climb into Edoras with the Rohirrim - or a hot bath and a cold pint at the Prancing Pony!
