    I love the way he did the sky. The castle amazes me, it’s so beautiful. I almost feel like I could be there.

    The desolation reminds me of the sadness pervading most of Tolkien’s work – the past is forever fading from us

    why does it say “Ronald Tolkien” on the bottom? is that how he called himself?
