This is such a beautiful tribute to the Professor, Mechtild:) You know, when I read comments from people saying how much they long to visit his grave, or Sarehole Mill where he played, etc., I feel quite guilty because I actually live in his Middle Earth and I'm sure I don't always appreciate this as much as I should. When we first married, we lived in the road right next to Wake Green Road where he lived for many years. When my husband passed his driving test, the first place we decided to drive to was Sarehole Mill, though in those days I had no idea just how significant this would become. We have only been to the annual Tolkien event held at the Mill once - I think I will remedy that this year. We may also take a trip to Oxford to visit the grave. Oh yes, someone else will be in Oxford this year, won't he? How I would love to take him by the hand and say "Come with me, we're going to visit the resting place of someone who transformed both our lives". Thank you for posting these wonderful pics - I find the one of him sleeping with his son quite moving:)

If you do, Not Alone, please give a little report. By the way, above Brummie (aka Earth's Daughter) also confessed to not paying as much attention to seeing the Tolkien sights as she might.

That would be very cool, really. I'll bet he would find the experience valuable.
