I've been reading The Lord of the Rings to Dietrich for ... oh ... at least a year and a half now, probably longer.

But we've finally arrived at Ithilien -- which of course reminded me of all the time I spent creating the fictional world of my first blog.

I looked around at it and realized what a difference two years can make even in the life of someone in their mid-thirties.

And, of course, I was also struck by how shortly after the Ithilien interlude in The Lord of the Rings comes "The Choices of Master Samwise."

Such is life.
