Adventure is all around us. You need only to look. Your adventure may be different then everyone else's, but you will find yourself thinking how much you would love to live that life or be in that persons shoes. Tolkien has inspired many people to read and enjoy his writings, especially me. He created a world of adversity, prosperity, adventures, amazement, and the representation of an imagination. Bilbo is a hobbit from over and under-hill, and Gandalf, a wizard of legendary power recruits him to go an adventure to reclaim a homeland and slay a dragon. The One Ring places a part in helping Bilbo accomplish many feats and escaping from the dreaded creature Gollum. Does the One Ring slip away from Bilbo as it did Gollum? Will the company ever reach the mountain? Does the hobbit Bilbo have the courage to continue and achieve this almost impossible feat? Only time will tell how this epic adventure concludes and how it begins the avalanche of an even greater trilogy.
Leaving house and home is hard, but it is the way to the end which rewards even the most courageous of hearts.
Patience is a virtue. Does everyone posses patience or are we all ignorant?
Being small is just a perspective. You must live your life to the fullest and never take anything for granted.
