Essay by Eglerio Hyn
After hearing about LotR on Charitysplace.com and going to see Fellowship soon after...
I started out as a very freaky, fanatic LotR fan. Mostly consumed in
the "he is so cute" and "ohmygosh he had better not die cause he's my
favorite..." among other crazy things.
Then as I read the books gradually after seeing Fellowship, and coming
and lurking on here for many a day. My fangirl side fell away (though
it can still be revived on occasion. lol) and rather a deep love and
bond was created with the books, characters, the film and a respect for
their author. Tolkien. I remember checking Two Towers out at the
library soley to find out if Legolas and Frodo died, and then later
laughing over my pettiness. Realizing the deeper meaning and parallels
to my faith in Jesus Christ hidden beautifully in this story of good
and evil and so much more.
I finally joined here with you all last January. A year ago...so much
has happened since then, I've read so many awesome stories, poems, and
musings drawn from this book Lord of the Rings. It inspired me as well
to write and post some of them, and I really appreciated all those kind
comments. I wish I could write donw each of your names...but there is
so many. I've enjoyed your writings, talking, musing and laughing with
I want to thank you all for this journey and I will be here as long as
this board sticks around to share in the future of LotR with you all.
God bless you and may you find Him on your journey....:)
What was your journey....I'd love if any of you shared yours.
