Sad. Truly eerie!

I like your new Obama themed family photo and banner. Unicorns make everything better...even though mine didn't show up yesterday. It was probably sent media mail.

Because Tolkien's words are almost scripture-so, so true!

So, what are we going to do to make the best of the time we have?

I know how to make the best of my time. I'm going to re-read the Lord of the Rings and then watch the movies!

I'm going to brush up on my unicorn skills.

I watched this clip again, because I love it so much and found two other things that struck me as very important with everything. Gandalf says "Do not be too eager to deal out death and judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends." And, "There are other forces at work in this world besides the will of evil." Now both of those make me feel quite a bit better! Things are not so dark after all, I think.

I think Obama needs to hire Frodo's screenwriters as a speechwriter.
