Inspiration of the Day: Tolkien’s Middle Earth

04 Jan

With the turned eye back to Middle Earth, thanks to the new Hobbit movie, I have been revisiting some of Tolkien’s letters to friends and family regarding his creation.  Most importantly, Tolkien never demeaned his audience by languid explanations regarding the origins of magic or the fineries of elf-dwarf politics just to justify a point.  Rather, he presented it as a myth, allowing us an imagination of his world that was so beautifully created.
