birthdays, Brenton Dickieson, hope, The Tolkien Society

“The Professor!”

On this gray rainy Sunday, the last one of the holiday break I was thoroughly awash in the Sunday doldrums. I sat down to think about/work on my weekly blog post, but first checked my email. I’m glad I did. I read Brenton Dickieson’s headline for his blog A Pilgrim in Narina.


A Brace of Tolkien Posts for his 129th Birthday #TolkienBirthdayToast

Being a Tolkien fan I read on. My gray rainy Sunday suddenly felt a little less bleak. It became a day to celebrate hope as well as watch The Fellowship of the Ring. It turns out that January 3rd was J.R.R. Tolkien’s birthday and this particular January 3rd would be his 129th birthday. To celebrate The Tolkien Society, https://www.tolkiensociety.org, and its my guess many other fans will raise their glasses at 9pm (their local time) in honor of the great writer’s contributions.

If you’re a fan too you might want to join in the celebration. It can’t hurt to shift into your weekly workday routine with a hint of hope to hold onto.
