J.R.R. Tolkien: Imagination

Food for thought on a cold March morning...

"Not all who wander are lost." 

Tolkien lost his father when he was 4... his mother at the age of 12. An orphan then cared for by the Catholic Church, many would've considered this young boy "lost". I'd like to think it was his imagination that sheltered him, nurtured him, and gave him not only the strength to survive the difficulties and tragedies of his childhood, but also the skills to succeed as an adult.

I think this quote has something to say to all of us. Think about what these words could mean to you.

Happy Weekend!

  1. I think it means that just because someone takes a different path doesn't mean they're misguided. Each person has a right to their choices no mater how different they might seem.
