Wow - thanks so much, Simon, and welcome! // [In reply to] Can't Post


Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Mr. Tolkien certainly was a wonderful and inspirational man, and congratulations on your own writings!
