|And, oh, so changed he will be after tonight. He is learning far more seriously than Bilbo,that the choice to set foot outside the door is more than merely dangerous--it is frankly perilous!|

|"it is a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door..." One of my favorite quotes, and I always hear it spoken in Ian Holmes' voice. I don't know if my memory comes from the film or from the BBC radio dramatization, but it's very clear in my mind. Once again, you have taken a slice of time, the space of a few heartbeats, and embedded them in clear crystal.|
The reality never quite comes close to childhood imaginings... Alas, poor Frodo.

I definitely heard Ian Holmes voice as well!!
"Once again, you have taken a slice of time, the space of a few heartbeats, and embedded them in clear crystal."
Thank you! That is exactly what I try and do in these drabbles. To create little gems of time. Which as you know from my writing I can most definitely be loquacious! Never use a word when three will do!! LOL!!!
Poor Frodo he gives so much and is so hard on himself!
I'm off to try and bake bread!!! (I will report my success...or lack thereof! :-)) !)
