Re: the Ring's the thing (in which we catch the conscience of the halfling)

Sorry, I have to butt in. So the choice of the Ring was strictly aesthetic? That is very cool, I think. So many great choices in art (and in a certain film trilogy) that worked wonderfully, touching deep things, seem to have been done with little or no conscious intent. But the results are undeniably strong, as if some muse or God--or the Arts God anyway--had guided the makers.

P.S. I'll send Jan an email that you replied.

I agree whole-heartedly. I think Andre Gide was so right in saying: "Art is a collaboration between God and the artist, and the less the artist does the better."

Thanks for informing Jan again!

Andre Gide is a great souce of fine quotes, if this is any example!
