"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them all,
One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all
and in the darkness bind them

In the Land of Mordor
where the Shadows lie."

Once again thinking about that woman I overheard at the Lord of the Rings movie premiere night in my local cinema complaining: "this is not credible, orcs don't exist!".
I'm still thinking about it 22 years later.
I will go to my grave thinking there was a woman who found elfs & Hobbits credible, but not orcs.

Writing up study notes for the small #dharma study group I love, and something Ajahn Sumedho says keeps bringing this #LOTR quote to mind: “It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door," he used to say. "You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” So of course I included it as an aside. They know me.
Ajahn's quote? “It’s a totally untrustworthy state to put your refuge in, being a person of any kind.” 🙏 🙃

On kyllä ollut juuri sellainen syksy, jolloin #Frodo lähti Konnusta: lämmintä vielä syyskuun lopullakin. Tänä vuonna on #TaruSormustenHerrasta jäänyt silti lukemati. Olikohan se edellinen vai jo sitä edellinen kerta, kun yritin lukea niin, että pysyisin kirjan tapahtumien aikataulussa? Mutta #Rivendell- ja #Lórien-jaksot sekoittivat pakan. #lukeminen #kotijuttuja #LOTR

Still just as incredible as the first day I saw it in the cinema, back in 2003! 🧙‍♂️

Lots more tears this time around though, as the emotional beats hit a lot harder. Especially that final line: "Well, I'm back." 😭

Child A really didn't want to go out for a short walk round our local Duck Pond - but once we got there we fished out loads of 'treasure' (rubbish) with sticks, dug up half buried bottle caps and even got a couple of deposit bottles, which both children thought was excellent. Then on the way home past our neighbours we were given muffins!

But it's still 100% true.

From #LOTR 🧙🏼‍♀️🧝🏽‍♀️

He [Frodo] turned and saw that Sam was now standing beside him, looking round with a puzzled expression, and rubbing his eyes as if he was not sure that he was awake. ‘It’s sunlight and bright day, right enough,’ he said. ‘I thought that Elves were all for moon and stars: but this is more Elvish than anything I ever heard tell of. I feel as if I was inside a song, if you take my meaning.'

Part 6: 🧵 1/x


How about a #hobbit/LotR 24 hour charity stream where some friends watch the whole thing while playing #LotR online or other fantasy games 🤔🎮

Soon. The marathon of the ages.


That's prob about 12 hours

extended lotr alone is 11 hours and 22 minutes

LOTR Extended = 681 minutes

Hobbit 1 Extended = 182 minutes

Hobbit 2 Extended approx. 186 minutes Lets say Hobbit 3 Extended is at least 185 minutes

hours 30 minutes

#herfect that leaves 3 and a half hours for snack runs and pee breaks

The full marathon run time will be around 1234 minutes, or 20

Doing my annual re-reading of #LOTR and the accompanying texts. I don't have a great memory for the details of a book, but I'm pretty sure I find some previously-missed tidbit. This time: Meriadoc getting stepped on by Elfhelm on the way to Gondor.

Pretty sure I would've called it quits right then and there. No respect.

The best piece on "Tolkeiin 50 years on"

"Far from being snobby or otherworldly, his writing radiates the enchantment of the ordinary, the desperate simple longings of mortals for hearth and home. Adventures are not romanticised, but exhaustively transcribed. Every weary league across Middle-earth is wrung out of the pages, yet each step rings with significance. It is enlivened by an utter sincerity; "

'Over the bridge!.. Fly! This is a foe beyond any of you. I must hold the narrow way. Fly!’ Aragorn and Boromir did not heed the command...
Fire came from its nostrils. But Gandalf stood firm.
‘You cannot pass,’ he said. The orcs stood still, and a dead silence fell. ‘I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor. You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udûn. Go back to the Shadow! You cannot pass.'
