The road goes ever on
Finally saw the end of The Hobbit. (Little bit too much side business.) Got me to thinking back to when the films started with Fellowship Of The Ring, seeing the first trilogy with mum (who I took) and dad (now moved away and remarried) and my brother (now married with kids and on the other side of the planet) and that it doesn’t seem so long... but it is. Nearly a third of my life. And being read the books as a child, among my earliest memories. (And MERP. Let us never speak of it.) It’s one of my founding myths, long down my life.
