It’s that day again, and it has been a lovely September 22nd here in Portland, with minimal smoke in the air. Being at the beginning of an insanely busy fall term, I didn’t have much time today for hobbitish reflections, but I did take a couple short walks in the lovely fall, and we ordered dinner in so we could have a proper hobbitish feast (from Shari’s).
In the LotR-verse in my head, Frodo is 91 today. It never quite struck me before that that almost correlates with how long it’s been since I was first aware of LotR: that would have been 40 years ago, so one year off. I didn’t plan it that way. I’ve only been keeping yearly track since high school, but it’s funny how that worked out!
