In two weeks I will officially have all the books by J.R.R. and Christopher Tolkien concerning Middle Earth.
Átaremma i ëa han ëa,
na aire esselya,
aranielya na tuluva,
na care indómelya
cemende tambe Erumande.
Ámen anta síra ilaurëa massamma,
ar ámen apsene úcaremmar
sív’ emme apsenet tien i úcarer emmen.
Álame tulya úsahtienna
mal áme etelehta ulcullo.
This is so beautiful! <’3

January 3rd 2012: J.R.R. Tolkien Day
I told you this day’s holiday would probably be one of my favorite.
In honor of what would have been J.R.R. Tolkien’s 120th birthday, I held a quick little celebration. My friend Sarah came over later in the day. My mother, Sarah and I played Lord of the Rings Trivial Pursuit, ate silly looking sugar cookies made by me, and at 9:00 PM we toasted to the professor. It was a grand evening, a night that assures me I should continue on my journey to celebrate everyday. :)
There’s not much else to say of the evening. (That’s not to say it wasn’t fantastic!) In fact very few minutes remain of this day. So here’s to you, professor. Thank you for creating such an intricate, grandiose world. I have constant admiration for the many works you have done (which includes so much more than just the stories of Middle Earth). You made great advancements and wonderful accomplishments. I could talk about them for a long time. But what this all comes down to is that your stories gave me hope in a dark time of my life. When everything seemed hopeless and I was so broken, the Lord of the Rings series kept me going. Because how could I give up when those faithful characters endured? I am so grateful for your gift to me. Thank you, professor.
I wanted to reblog this from myself because it’s my Tolkien celebrations. How could I not? Also don’t you just love that GPOY of me? ;D
