I Have Something to Say
I am enjoying some free days for my Easter holidays now. This year I am not taking a trip anywhere, and I am really enjoying it. I have my books (Tolkien's Silmarillion is such a great book to get lost in) my walks, my Chinese studies.

Days pass, I don't know which date it is today, or which day of the week, and I really like it. I love the feeling of time as a continuum. Even if I am not fond of the idea of a linear time and see it more like a circle. But that's another story.

Only something is missing. Those of you who know me, you know what it is.

From the photos you post, there must be some very beautiful walks in the area you live.

@Cierzo: That is the fate of many rural areas around the world but it is not necessarily a bad one.
Cierzo · M
@Mugin16: Agree. But I have the feeling this fate may change. Cities are likely to become more insecure

@Cierzo: Yes, I agree. It will be safer to live in the countryside. I think also that people who live in rural areas are in general less stressed and happier.

I love Tolkien. Hope you enjoy your free time.

Thank you. I read The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings in my late teens, loved them, but could not finish Silmarillion then. I guess I was expecting another novel, which is not. It is becoming my favorite Tolkien now, above TLOTR.

The Silmarillion is hard to read I think it would have benefited from better editing, but it's so rich and incredibly detailed.

@FlyingHome: I like the raw feeling it has since Tolkien was not able to finish and polish it.
I can compare it with the Bible. Both are in a way chronicles of ancient peoples.

Oh yes! I saw that post and got sidetracked before I could respond! You give me hope - I gave up on it years ago. I'm thinking now maybe I should try again too and just make a chart or something as I go along. LOL I'm so happy to see you enjoying your time off! Warms the heart. I wish you two could be together though.

Me too...at some point it will happen.

I really need to read some Nietzsche.
Cierzo · M
Vow, take it easy. I used to like him more than I do now, but I admit he is great
