Personal log.

Well, at last, Rather like Frodo Baggins I have come home to my Hobbit hole, my own Bag End. Our adventure is all over and it has contained many of the characters I have long read about. Orcs on their Wargs, Goblins, the demon Balrog and even a Wizard in our own Captain.

I think I have learned much more about myself than I knew. The secret I bring with me is that it is not the getting there that is important, but, how we do so that gives truth and beauty to our lives. Hela will always be with me and, yes she may take me in the end but she cannot take away the love I have now in my life and it is up to me how to use that love until such a time as it is my turn to ‘go into the west’.

As one of my favorite characters Gandalf The Grey said in reply to Frodo.

“ I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

As I close my book that is what I will remember and hopefully will have fulfilled that.
