a rumor grew.... that a new LOTR would be hitting
someone who has advanced screenings of films
reported that a new FOTR trailer was attached to the
movie, "Blow", due out Sept, 11.
Magpie steps aside for a moment. That entry actually
read 'due out 9-11' and I realized immediately what I
was going to be hitting as I moved through the archives.
How pertinent is it to this accounting? I'm not sure.
But I can't just skip over it like it didn't happen.
When I dug deep within myself during my 2002 Summer of
Tolkien to figure out why this story, this book, this
movie had impacted me so profoundly, I came up with many
possible reasons. One of them was 9-11. I struggled for
months after to make sense of it. I don't know if I've
ever been shaken by any event as much as I was by that
one. I'm not going to skip over. I'm going to place it
context of events.

step back from everything and think about the lives lost
and the families affected.

deepest prayers and sympathies to everyone who is
affected by this tragedy. Unfortunately, it seems our
world is a lot darker today, and it is days like this,
when I long for places like the Shire to escape this
Please donate blood, volunteer, send money, do whatever
you can to help the hundreds and thousands of families
worldwide that will be affected by this tragedy.

financial standing, so please help out with this cause
