Tolkien’s works and imagination have touched the lives of so many people through the world over; Hope, responsibility, destiny are all things that we can take away from it and the fact that sometimes the choices that we make whilst they may not make sense to us or seem significant at the time are all part of a much larger picture that can often take far longer than we imagined to ever come to pass.

The fact that someone would go to this deal of effort working through the pieces of information left in his writings to piece together this picture is a testament to the impact that his works have had on people, and the inspiration to us to reach for the stars and fuel our imaginations.

To dare, to dream, to do. Good on ’em 🙂
