Jan, 3rd… I always hold this date dear to my heart, not only is it a day to celebrate the genious that was J.R.R. Tolkien, but to also be thankful to had come across the most fantastic stories that I have ever set my human eyes on.
120 years ago the biggest fantasy author was born, the man that would draw a world where many persons call ‘home’ that would give us many friends, that would enable us to find hope in the most unlikely places and love in the most unexpected hearts. And for most of all, for me it signified a light in the utter darkness, a healing to mortal wounds.
Your memories are not only immortalized in the literature world but also in the millions of hearts where your works will forever linger on and shall never be consigned to oblivion. Happy Birthday J.R.R. Tolkien! And thank you for had left us a huge gift, a gift that we promise to always share with the greatest amount of people we have the opportunity to.
So let’s all raise a glass, as it has already become a tradition for me, and toast the birthday of such an amazing person! THE PROFESSOR!
