Sam nodded silently. He took his master’s hand and bent over it. He did not kiss it, though his tears fell on it.
Here nothing lived, not even the leprous growths that feed on rottenness. The gasping pools were choked with ash and crawling muds, sickly white and grey, as if the mountains had vomited the filth of their entrails upon the lands about. High mounds of crushed and powdered ricks, great cones of earth fire-blasted and poison-stained, stood like an obscene graveyard in endless rows, slowly revealed in the reluctant light.
Sam turned to Bywater, and so came back up the Hill, as day was ending once more. And he went on, and there was yellow light, and fire within; and the evening meal was ready, and he was expected. And Rose drew him in, and set him in his chair, and put little Elanor upon his lap.
He drew a deep breath. “Well, I’m back,” he said.
Wise words to keep in mind
I’m willing to go out on a limb here and guess that most stories of kindness do not begin with drug addicted celebrity bad boys.
His name is Robert Downey Jr.
You’ve probably heard of him. You may or may not be a fan, but I am, and I was in the early 90’s when this story takes place.
It was at a garden party for the ACLU of Southern California. My stepmother was the executive director, which is why I was in attendance without having to pay the $150 fee. It’s not that I don’t support the ACLU, it’s that I was barely twenty and had no money to speak of.
i wonder if people notice that i wear the same pair of jeans literally all the time
Oh my god. ME TOO. I thought I was alone!!!
So, months ago, I decided to track my url as a tag, to see if people ever pay attention to me. But there was never anything on it. Nothing at all! Even when people did tag me, or even when I tagged myself, it never showed up in the tag track. So today, I finally looked at it more closely, and realized, much to my shame, that I had spelled my own url wrong.
I had left out one of the “t”s.
So, finally I entered my url correctly, and discovered, much to my surprise and joy, that people HAD been tagging me! In fact, lots of people had!!!
Mostly welcome posts for following their blog, and replies to my replies to their posts. There’s not tons and tons of posts where I’m tagged, but the fact is that people have tagged me (a lot more than I expected!) and I feel loved and appreciated.
Even though I’m an idiot. :P
Try it…:D it made me smile..:D
Ya know what? It’s strangely encouraging. This sort of did make me feel better. I’m not entirely sure if that’s a good thing, but it did make me feel a bit better, so I’m gonna say it’s good.
It’s small and stupid, I know, but it means a lot. :]
Only a few can appreciate my new desktop background.
I APPRECIATE IT. I DO. DEAR GOD I DO.
