In exactly one week I will have seen it Can't Post

with 30 friends and returned home, had breakfast, gotten into bed, and been unable to sleep because I have been in Middle-earth again, and so will get up and have second breakfast, I think blueberry pancakes with chocolate chips and maple syrup, then, hopefully, sleep. It will be a good day. What do you plan on doing afterwards?

A friend, who is truly the biggest fan in Wellington, maybe all of New Zealand, maybe in the whole world, was handed a ticket to the premiere a couple of hours before the screening, incredibly lucky dog. He is a fan, yes, but one who will express strong opinions either way. He will give me no details, but his reaction was "I was 'in' Middle-earth. It was beautiful, enchanting and absolutely the coolest experience." That's just another total stranger's opinion to you, but I trust his evaluation and thought some of you might be reassured while criticism flies around (which I haven't read because I'm hiding.)

So I'm planning on those pancakes and then dinner later in the day with 60 friends who will see a later screening, and I won't give them any details either, but will wave them off on their own journey to Middle-earth. If I sound a bit fey and too gooey, that's how I'm feeling right now - just a bit floaty and content that the wait is nearly over and with every confidence that the heart of Tolkien's stories - friendship and courage - is waiting for us again.

Happy trailsSmile
