NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Happy 116th Birthday to Tolkien: photos, letter #328, and a reflection.

That letter rocks. I've read it before, of course, because I have the Collected Letters. I love what that guy said to him, that he didn't suppose he wrote all that book himself. :)

I'd not seen that photo of Tolks with toddler Christopher before. How touching. :)

That Alan Lee painting of the hobbits meeting Gildor is one of my favourites.

The story does have sanctity. A rare quality.

Hi, Pearl! I've just been chatting with Mithluin up there. I hadn't realised that the mithluin on your LJ, discussing HP and snape, was the same Mithluin from TORc. Small world! Thanks for keeping up connections!

(That Alan Lee painting is just wonderful, I agree. I love the way it conveys the magical quality and gravity of that book scene.)
