It's May 25th and that means... Can't Post

That the Return of the King released here in Colorado 9 years ago today! Hard to believe that my baby is growing up so fast. I thought I would take a moment to honor it by saying a few things about how the trilogy has helped me and enhanced my life in these years.
I watched the Fellowship of the Ring at my mothers prompting in February 2004 and in March I read the book and right after that I started writing poetry and never before had I shown any signs of being a poet. Thank you Tolkien!
The Lord of the Rings is a constant that I always find myself turning to whenever something has gone wrong or my life has sunk into a pit of despair. I always thing of them when I feel sad, left out or useless.
I am terrified of spiders and whenever I am facing one or I get scared by one, I tell myself to think of Frodo or Bilbo or Aragorn and somehow I am able to go on doing around the creepy old things. Pirate
I feel my heart soar at the music in the films and I feel like a protective parent over the books and treat them like the treasures they are.
I feel out of place with many things and in many places but I always feel like I am home and that I belong in the world of LotR. I may not be the smartest cookie in the box all the time and people may think I am awkward but get me talking about Tolkien and IO am anything but!
Thank God for Tolkien and thank God for Peter Jackson. They have both been blessings for me and I don't know where I would be without them. I am so thankful that I had LotR and TORN when I lost my dear, dear Granny in January. I don't think I would have made it without both of them.
May Tolkien forever be in our hearts and minds and may the beauty of Middle-earth never diminish.
Namarie and Happy Return of the King Day!!!!
Feel free to share your own LotR love stories!

Well Said! [In reply to] Can't Post

I share you sentiments.

My Sam Gamgee is indeed a reflexion of the English soldier, of the privates and batmen I knew in the 1914 war, and recognized as so far superior to myself- J.R.R. Tolkien

One thing I've noticed over the years is the way this story, book or film, keeps coming back to me with new meaning. Good stuff.

Totally true [In reply to] Can't Post

The Lord of the Rings is one of the things, besides music, that keeps me sane. It's given me so much inspiration. After I got more and more into Tolkien, I also became more and more aware that I wanted to be a musician. It has helped me out, and is something I turn to when I'm happy, sad, angry, just like music! It's a part of my life, and in my opinion one of the best pieces of literature written.
