There and Back Again...Again

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort – J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit (1937)."

And with that you're off to arguably the greatest story of all time...and all those that follow it in the universe of J.R.R. Tolkien.  And now, the stories continue to be retold ala Amazon...

Amazon's Lord of the Rings TV Series

Apparently, a prequel to The Lord of the Rings...so with some unbelievable anticipation and the great hope that they won't muck all this up...we'll be waiting anxiously for this to happen...all while clutching our replica One Ring in hand as it hangs around our necks with a bit of cord.

Actually, it's coming on time for me to re-read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings...and maybe The Simarillion too (maybe).

Perhaps by the time I've lovingly traveled from Hobbiton to the Gates of Mordor once again...maybe...just maybe...Amazon's new show will air...
