'There's no growing old while the Sea is still young.' *sigh* That is nice. I love Tolkien's vision of the Sea ...

Author Reply: I live about a ten-minute drive from the ocean, and love to watch and listen to the waves, and think about lands faraway. Somewhere out there, the hobbits are enjoying life in the West.

'We're only giving her peach crumble.' heehee :-)

Author Reply: Bilbo's peach crumble is probably very yummy.

I love that she loves Sam... :-)

Author Reply: So do I. Surely Yavanna must have been aware of him.

The hey diddle diddle song again! :-)

Yes, Gandalf would be very upset if they started treating him formally or some such...

I've always loved the sheer mythological feel in some of Tolkien's writing -- the sun and the moon being one of those...

Author Reply: That hey diddle diddle song gets around!

It's as they've said before...they're all part of the one big story, and for all its toil and suffering they got a glorious chapter indeed... :-)

Author Reply: I'm happy to think of Frodo and Bilbo being together in the West. They truly deserved it.

Of course he will! Gandalf loves hobbits, and these two in particular. :-)

What an amazing voyage. I could just picture it...

Author Reply: Gandalf truly loves his hobbits, and always will.

It would be amazing to have all that time to learn and grow, and then an equal time to put it all to use. But then, there's always more to learn...

Author Reply: I'm sure most of us have wondered what we'd do, and learn given all the time in the world.

Becoming who we are instead of what circumstances made us -- maybe at time the hardest quest of all...

Author Reply: What a lovely thing to say.

Fantastic idea, indeed! *smiles* I do love books...

Author Reply: I can't imagine living without books, and it's fun to imagine the elves feeling the same way.
