“The Last Homely House”

“I wish I had time to tell you even a few of the tales or one or two of the songs that they heard in that house. All of them, the ponies as well, grew refreshed and strong in a few days there. Their clothes were mended as well as their bruises, their tempers and their hopes. Their bags were filled with food and provisions light enough to carry but strong to bring them over the mountain passes. Their plans improved with the best advice. So the time came to midsummer eve and they were to go on again with the early sun on midsummer morning.”

Tolkien, The Hobbit, 51-52.

Yet, we know that even Rivendell will fade, and is faded in comparison to the light of the blessed realm of Valinor.

My thoughts and prayers are with you Jesse Van Der Molen.
