Quite an amazing set-up.

Interesting to see that he now lives in New Zealand.

What a nice man!

Funny that the only English uni I've seen AND attended (UEA, although only for a summer course) is the one he studied at...

He has a very difficult situation [In reply to] Can't Post

and he's managed to work it out for all involved. Dealing with a spouse with Alzheimer's is one of the most devastating things that can happen, and if you can't "move on" somehow, it can ruin you emotionally. John R-D has been blessed with a most caring and generous partner!

Thanks for the link [In reply to] Can't Post

I always wondered where he went after LOTR. Poor guy, but he seems to be making best of his situation. And I love his daughter's name *g*

I enjoyed this article. [In reply to] Can't Post

It gives me a warm feeling and real respect for JRD. I feel his life and his choices shows his heart and a man well chosen for the roll of Gimli.

"Tolkien, like Lewis, believed that, through story, the real world would become a more magical place, full of meaning. We see its patterns and colors in a fresh way. The recovery of a true view of the world applies both to individual things, like hills and stones, and to the cosmic - the depths of space and time itself. For in sub-creation, in Tolkien's view, there is a "survey" of space and time. Reality is captured on a miniature scale. Through stories like The Lord of the Rings, a renewed view of things is given, illuminating the homely, the spiritial, the physical, and the moral dimensions of the world."
