If you read here often, you know I’m a Tolkien geek. I love the books, I love the movies. It’s the story of hope against all odds, when all seems dark.
Gimli’s point is clear, death and defeat are certain. But it’s the right thing to do to give Frodo that one last chance to destroy the ring.
Making choices are hard, and while it may feel like it, we don’t usually have to face an army of Orcs. But sometimes we do the right thing, not because we think we’ll win, but simply because it’s right.
Actor John Rhys-Davis who portrayed Gimli in The Lord of the Rings films, was born on this day in 1944.
365 Things I Believe is a revisioning of a year long web project. I initially launched the blog 365 Things I Believe because I think there are important things I have to say. There are eternal truths that are non-debatable, although I realize they’re not universally accepted.
So for a year I did a daily post of one thing I believe to be an indisputable truth. I’m relaunching here at The Write Side of My Brain and will continue through the next year to re-post (mostly) from the original project.
This time graphics and commentary are included. You can buy today’s print here.
