Gone Orc-ing...

I'm off to speak and sign at ORC, The One Ring Celebration. I'll be back online on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend. Long live the Shire!

As I walk tiredly toward the West,
And think of all I’ve seen and done,
Fortress tall and cavern deep
Old forest dark, the ocean wide,
And climbing up the mountainside,
My road then led me further on,
So I journeyed westward.

As I walk tiredly toward the West
My heart cries out for hearth and home.
Familiar faces, friendly smiles --
Now all I know is left behind
Until at last one day I’ll find
My road will lead me home once more
To go no more a-questing.

Am I to lose my way again?
Never to see your sweet smile, my friend?
I’ll search to find you and bring you home once more
My true love, far away...


from "As I Walk" by Glass Hammer, from The Middle Earth Album

LOL ... that's great!!!

I'm a bit challenged when it comes to icons and sit in awe of what others have done ... still, you just can't beat Curious George!!!

I ♥ Curious George an awful lot. I've even played with the idea of putting together a Curious George mood theme (which would be ACE) but, er, that lack of time thing... ;)

That sounds really neat :) I have to be sure to listen to your radio broadcast. It's too bad you're not speaking at UCSD ;)

Thank you so much! It turns out that, due to some technical difficulties, we had to reschedule for this upcoming Friday. So the radio program will run then. Thanks for the comment re: UCSD. I don't know about other California schools, but it looks like I'll be speaking at Chapman University sometime this summer.

Back atcha! :) Hope you had a good time. Did you get to see Miranda Otto and Billy Boyd? Good times. I think I enjoyed John Noble's presentation the best, though. All of them were lovely to meet.

The Glass Hammer concert was one of the highlights of Past Watchful Dragons. Great lyrics.

Have a super great time at ORC, take lots of pics to share.
