Remember how I used to love Lord of the Rings? And how that fact will NEVER CHANGE?
I still love it as much as ever. (click here to read about a loosely related dream I had once and completely forgot about until now.)
I have realized it will ever be ingrained and woven into my being, an eternal part of the make up of my soul. The three of us just finished marathon-watching it and I almost got a little weepy--not just from the high intensity emotions from approximately 1 billion scenes that already make me cry, particularly in Return of the King-- but also that we were there sharing this love with Julian who is totally mature enough at the ripe age of six. Nothing could make me happier.
I love this movie so much and will watch and re-watch until I die. From a religious
standpoint, there is not a gospel principle I can't draw LOTR parallels
to. I think I just gave myself a challenge. There are so many quotable lines there that I use them all the time whether I realize it or not. It just comes out. Anyway, i just wanted to re-establish that.
That said, I sent this pic to Sean and I laughed at my own cleverness.
