“I am looking for someone to share in an adventure that I am arranging, and it’s very difficult to find anyone.”
On what started out as a seemingly ordinary day just over seventeen years ago, I happened to encounter an old wizard riding into Hobbiton on his cart that had been filled with the most amazing fireworks ever seen even by the oldest of Hobbits.
It’s strange to think of how long it has been since I was first introduced to Tolkien’s incredible world, initially through the vision of Peter Jackson but that first movie whetted my appetite and I moved onto the books pretty soon thereafter.
One of many characters that I immediately warmed to and still hold close to myself even today; is Gandalf.
” He wore a tall pointed grey hat, a long grey cloak, and a silver scarf. He had a long white beard and bushy eyebrows that stuck out beyond the brim of his hat.”
