"Full of loves known and yearnings
unfulfilled beyond time,

beyond place,

beyond Wood or Sea,

or Shore,
beyond words"

Just a small part of so much beauty. Its a lovely pensive sort of peice that fits this picture and the pensive look that is Tolkien at that moment. I love the sea. There is nothing more majestic to me than the smell, sight, feel or sound of the ocean. It is powerful and in Tolkien's world has the power to seperate elves, a wizard, men, and mostly two hearts forever joined in friendship and love in our beautiful little hobbits. What a mind, heart and soul.
hugs you both. You almost always leave me thinking and misty eyed. xoxoxoxoxo love v

Verangel, I am so glad you enjoyed the post. Tolkien certainly appreciated the Sea, its beauty, its power and the pull it exerts on the human mind and spirit. I see you share it.

Thank you so much. Your own love and passion for beauty is apparent. The Professor surely was a unifying force. I think that was, in part, his purpose: to show, through the power of his words, that people of all sorts could and should selflessly work together for the salvation of all

(and his love of the Sea, his own Sea-longing, makes him all the more special!)
