Happy New Year 2019

“The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”

The Fellowship of the Ring
JRR Tolkien
"The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater." - JRR Tolkien (The Fellowship fo the Ring) Quote

    Happy New Year – may 2019 allow you to keep finding all that is fair, Sarah. (Your choice of Professor Tolkien’s words feels so appropriate.)

    Happy New Year! This is a great tribute to Tolkien who was greatly affected by WW1. I find both wars very interesting and WW1 was one of the most brutal. One can see, in his works, how much the war is part of his books. He was a brilliant man and the language he created leaves me in awe

      Happy New Year, Birgit!
      True. The more I learn about WWI, the more I see I surfacing in Tolkien’s work. It’s an enriching experience.
