Today is a special day. Not because of the Olympics. Not because of anything exciting happening on this page.
IT’S BEEN A YEAR! YAY!
Officially, I started blogging on the 26th of July last year, but my first page post was on the 27th. It’s a year! Huzzah! Let’s have a long-expected party.
And now, back to our regularly scheduled programming…
BOROMIR CONTINUES ARGUING. Grumble…
Aragorn and Legolas wander off in search of the ancient path which serves as a portage route around the rapids. While Frodo worries that they might not return, they come back shortly, having found the path easily. However, it’s not the most accessible thing from their current location.
Fellowship of the LATE: 115 pages
Okay, I’m going to be honest: the Olympics are being really distracting right now. Paul McCartney problems.
But…what else is there to add? Boromir’s still causing problems. Aragorn’s trying to push him aside, and then actually manages to get something done. Coming up next must be a thrilling portage scene!
But Boromir’s main argument is that danger lies ahead should they continue on the river. Sure, he’s right, but Aragorn is MORE right: danger lies on every road. There’s something to be said for acknowledging the peril. Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away. Face your fears.
But, anyway, if you’ve been reading, thanks. I said I would do this everyday until it was done, and I still intend to do so. One year down, roughly two more to go! And we’re still not done with Fellowship yet…
“‘I fear we must leave the River now, and make for the portage-way as best we can from here.'”
