Teaching piano, reading books, long strolls through the forest, warm cups of coffee, studying the Bible and gleaning wisdom from it. Philosophies and Proverbs of old, laughing with my family.
First Lord of the Rings reading experience:
Began reading the Hobbit in Fall of 2009. Started FOTR in Fall of 2011, and am currently reading "The Two Towers".
Favorite Tolkien character:
My favorite LoTR character is Frodo. To me, he symbolizes the common person who is thrown into a daunting task that must be completed. Instead of shying away from it, he bravely fights through the to the end.
That brings me to mention my respect and admiration of Samwise Gamgee. Sam is a loyal, courageous, selfless friend who accompanies Frodo to the very end- even to the fires of Mount Doom. As a character, he inspires me to be a loyal and humble friend and companion to those who need me most.
