life stages and LOTR Can't Post

I've posted something along these lines a couple of times over the years and the answers are always interesting.

I was interested in the way our response to LOTR changes over time. It's a different book for me 40 years on and my reaction to the films has even changed over the (relatively) short time they've been out.

As an example, at difficult times in recent years I find myself thinking of the (movie-only) scene just after the death of Boromir. It seems to me that Aragorn is thinking something like, "Whatever I've done wrong or failed to do, this is not over." The Fellowship theme comes up in the musical score but with a twist. The technical term for the change is "suspension and resolution". The rest we know.
