Have you missed me?
It occurs to me what a ridiculously egotistical thing it is to keep a blog like this. If I were writing social commentary, deep political insights, or providing hard to find information about button collecting, there would be some point for me to keep writing, and you to keep reading (provided you were intrigued by social commentary, deep political insights, or button collecting). As it is, all I give you is the ramblings of my rusty mind with the occasional bit of deeper reflection thrown in. Thank you for being here!
Seems to have been an age since I wrote anything, and the longer silence reigns, the harder it is to break it. I've been hampered somewhat by ongoing technical issues and a small personal tsunami that must be dealt with before I feel intact enough to resume sharing those ramblings.
In the interim, I have begun to reread The Hobbit (or There and Back Again) in preparation for the upcoming and long-awaited movie adaptation from Peter Jackson and his ever so brilliant team that brought us The Lord of the Rings at the turn of the millenium. Are you a Tolkien fan? Have you seen the trilogy? Will you go to see The Hobbit? How excited are you to see Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, and how sad are you that there will be no Aragorn to lead them all to safety?
