A few weeks ago I bought a copy of The Hobbit from the book store and knew it was time to finally read the story of Bilbo Baggins.
I have always loved Tolkien based art, stories and the Movies that were made from those stories. So I knew it was time to finally read The Hobbit as well as re-read the LoTR trilogy.
I have not been able to put the book down since. Well minus the occasional "life" duties, but relatively important. I'd by lying if I said I was not inspired by this book and the message it has given me so far. It has given me a creative boost to start adventuring again.
As I am closing in on the ending of this book I get to the meeting of the great Dragon, Smaug, and I received a beautiful message from a stranger. It was a great affirmation that I am on my journey and going forward in the right direction. It also gave me the inspiration to write a special note and leave it in a book for someone. What a great way to spread a smile. I believe in fairy tales. :)
