59 Of 365 (366) For 2012

[ All credit to silberglanz, whose lovely picture may be found here. ]



peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tower high up in the mountains,

Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while.


The beauty of it smote his heart,

as he looked up out of the forsaken land,

and hope returned to him.


For like a shaft,

clear and cold,

the thought pierced him that in the end

the Shadow was only a small and passing thing:

there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.”


[ J. R. R. Tolkien Lord of the RingsThe Return of the King ]

    • Thank you so much: I’m thrilled you like it! 🙂 Isn’t it just the perfect photo for a perfect quote (in it’s own quirky way that is)? 😉

      – And who doesn’t love Lord of the Rings?! – I grew up on that! (well among others… 😉 )
