All things Tolkien and Jane Austen, costume, quilting, photography, nature, languages, travel, architecture, cats
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
College, in the fall. It felt so real and mythical at the same time. I read it every year for years. Then the films took over for a while. Now I'm reading again.
Favorite Tolkien character:
In the books: Favorite character: Eowyn; fearless and strong, dutiful but impulsive, intelligent, faithful, great role model.
Favorite male character: Faramir; cerebral and strong, sensitive and touchable.
Soooo glad they found each other.
In the films: many favorites, it was so well cast.
