While nursing a sinus infection some weeks ago, I started to re-read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy. Perhaps I needed some fantasy to entertain me in the lonely, quiet hours, but it has turned out to be rather fun even after recovery. I love these books because they are full of genius storytelling, the tension between good and evil, and quotable gems of truth from Tolkien, as iterated by his characters.
Here's my latest favorite. It speaks of true freedom.
