Thank you all... [In reply to] Can't Post

..for your kind wishes. I am most impatient to get moving. I the past weeks, the knowledge of what I'm about to embark upon has made me a wreck. Not so much because I fear what I'm about to do (though there's that too Wink), but because I realize the extreme 'lack' of living I've been doing. Pitiful as it may sound, I can't recall too many times in the past few years that I've been genuinely happy. I've been urged by those close to me to expand my interests, go out, be more open to things. But try those things as I may, my moments of pure joy have been reserved for darkened theaters, turning pages, and the sound of heart-achingly beautiful music entering my ears; and, unfortunately, I have found no one with whom these joys mean all that much to. I must say, there are times I feel like Antonio Salieri, reacting to the ridicule of his father, saying "How could I tell him what music meant to me?"

Not that I expect great change simply from moving. I know great effort will be required from me to reach out to those who might share such passions - but, at least, I feel I have a greater shot at finding those kindred spirits in a place like L.A. than small, little Cape Coral, FL. God willing, I'll find them and carve out my own destiny.

One thing I will say, though - I've never felt a lack of support in the online department; there really is no kind of people like Tolkien fans. I'm not sure there's a more artistically inclined fandom out there - and you guys (and gals) have been right there for me throughout my (attempted) endeavors over the past year or so. I really appreciate it.

"All men dream; but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds awake to find that it was vanity; But the dreamers of day are dangerous men. That they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it possible."
- T.E. Lawrence
