If you can see the Misty Mountains from Rivendell and Loth Lorien alike, those mountains can also see these places of light--they inform each other. The eagles live in their heights and the hobbits may have originally come down from their foothills. And Bilbo yearned to live out his days under them.

Well said, well said. Just because the mountains are the site of menacing events it doesn't therefore follow they cannot be appreciated, even loved, once those events have passed. Yes, Bilbo obviously loved living in Rivendell, nestled right under their knees.

I love your note about the green and yellow in the painting, too, the colours in which hobbits take such delight. All in all, your comment is chock full of interesting stuff, Lavender!
