saw LotR again today, in honor of Tolkein’s birthday. a damn fine movie. and the music didn’t bug me as much this time for some reason. that’s a deep, heavy story, and I can’t wait for the next installment.
I miss Grandpa Nelson…reminded again by the fall of Gandalf. my grandfather often had that same combination of seriousness, weariness, and good humor.
I could almost see it again, but I’ll probably just go re-read the books.

I’m absorbing things, and reordering my view of the past. again.
