Ogni dicembre, poco prima di Natale, una busta con un francobollo proveniente dal Polo Nord arrivava a casa Tolkien. All’interno c’era la lettera di Babbo Natale per i piccoli di casa, decorata da bellissimi disegni e poesie. A scriverla era, in realtà, il compassato professore di Oxford, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, che anni dopo avrebbe pubblicato Lo Hobbit e il Signore degli Anelli. La prima delle lettere è del 1920 e l’ultima risale al 1943. Un libro magico da mettere sotto l’albero. Natale sta arrivando...teniamo acceso il ❤️!
Book 27 of 2018. New perspectives each time I read it. From Tolkien: “We have come from God and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed, only by myth-making, only by becoming a ‘sub-creator’ and inventing stories, can Man ascribe to the state of perfection that he knew before the fall.” #read#grow#lotr#Tolkien#inklings#precious

Trabajo de cota de anillas en alambre galvanizado de 14 mm. Arriba a la izquiera el rodillo rudimentario para hacer los cilindros de los que se cortan los anillos. Armados en nucleos de cinco anillas una cota larga puede tener hasta 40 mil y pesar 30 kilos distribuidos. Un trabajo que da mas realismo a cualquier cosplay medieval. #got#wowbfa#medieval#Tolkien#cosplay
Today just 6 years ago!! I fallen in love with my precious Ship otp! 😭💙💖😍
they changed my life since then, they brought light to my life and since then I just can't stop loving them every single day! they inspire me a lot every single fukin' day! I'm totally in love with them together and individually! And I'm sure this will last forever! 😍
I knew them since a long before the hobbit, but I didn't loved them as I started doing since the hobbit: an unexpected journey was released and I could see the precious love between a hobbit and the dwarven king. I regret nothing! 😍
Also thanks to them I've learned a lot of things and developed other ones!
Thank you so much, Tolkien. Richard, Martin and Peter Jackson!
Oh btw I've been so damn busy this year and I haven't been able to share in time all my wonderful memories here but I'll do even late! Because I just can't get tired of my precious ship!
I beg you,
Open your doors…
Perhaps you do not come,
Because there is no hope,
No remedy or prescription,
For you to fill,
Perhaps I am damned,
Or maybe the fool,
Maybe love lost cannot be mended,
Maybe that’s to be my bitter pill,
I swallow it knowing,
That I had love,
That I knew love,
And I squandered her still.
