Celebrate Tolkien Week!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again, that wonderful week-long celebration of all things Middle-Earth. It’s the best time to look back and remember our first time entering the Shire or the first time we gazed upon the mighty fortress of Minas Tirith. Middle-Earth is a land that feels as real as our own, which is why so many of us keep returning.

I may not be able to do my usual week-long postings for Tolkien Week this year, but I at least wanted to impress upon us all why Middle-Earth is so special–because, in a way, it encompasses everything we love about our own world and magnifies it to a much more epic scale. It shows us how we can overcome individual differences and unite to achieve a common goal…and it reminds us that even the smallest and most unimportant of us can be heroes.

  1. Happy Hobbit Day!!! 🙂
    “It encompasses everything we love about our own world and magnifies it to a much more epic scale” – I like the way you said that!
    I realized I don’t think I ever showed you this video before… it has the dialogue from “The Road Goes On” in it, including a reference to “east of the moon, west of the sun” and an extremely abbreviated “Conspiracy.”

    Thanks for remembering this important day! : D
