What a wonderful post!! I have read some biographies of his life but I haven't seen many pictures. I am so taken with the story between him and Edith, to fall in love and then be forbidden to meet her, she converts to be with him and they spend their entire lives together, loving each other every day. It is so touching to see thir love story and see it reflect in the story of Beren and Lúthien. And he most certainly look like a Bilbo and I think he might not agree with you but deep down he would have been hapy to know that. *saving to memories*

Thank you, Majblomma. I just added an excerpt (indented, in smaller type) telling more about Edith's antecedents and their engagement, just so I'd have it printed out in my LJ for future reference. I, too, find it a terribly romanctic story, how they came to start talking to each other from each other's windows at the boarding house and all that. I know that things weren't always smooth-sailing between them, but they seemed committed for the long haul.
