Just a reminder that Sunday, the 3rd of January, is the birthday of J. R. R. Tolkien and it is the occasion of the traditional toast. With whatever beverage one enjoys, the toast is "The Professor!"


Here's a link to the Tollkien Society's page about this year's toast:

The Professor!

I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

I sit beside the fire and think
of how the world will be
when winter comes without a spring
that I shall never see.

For still there are so many things
that I have never seen:
in every wood in every spring
there is a different green.

I sit beside the fire and think
of people long ago,
and people who will see a world
that I shall never know.

But all the while I sit and think
of times there were before,
I listen for returning feet
and voices at the door.

Unknown to me that it had been the Professor's birthday, I had snuggled into my couch today and started re-reading The Silmarillion.

Happy Birthday!

I am genuinely impressed!  RE-READ The Silmarillion?!?!?!  I couldn't even get through it once!!  But...that was many, many years ago.  Perhaps I should try again.

Yeah, every time I read it, I get about 100% more out of it then I got the last time. I am as giddy as a school boy starting Christmas break every time I borrow it from the library.
