There’s a scene in The Fellowship of the Ring in which Bilbo walks away from the Shire with the words ‘I won’t be coming back.’ How I envied him, but there are no Rivendells within walking distance of this Shire.

And I wrote the following comment on somebody’s blog post tonight:

It might be worth acknowledging that blossom blown by the wind never becomes fruit.

I thought better of posting it.

So do I, but I decided I had no right to advise. Thanks for hanging in. It isn't unappreciated, believe it or not.

Good to know.

Thanks. That isn't unappreciated, either. I'm well aware that I can be very difficult to know when I'm struggling with nasty things in dark places.
