It’s been 10 years now. 10 years since the biggest door to Middle-Earth opened itself for the world. Although the book was first released in July, 29th, 1954 sweeping a huge number of readers to its pages, only in December, 10th, 2001 (World London Premiere) Tolkien’s legendarium reached its highest peak, the story would finally meet the screen. I do feel kind of old now, ha, how nostalgic! Well, 10 years ago I’ve ‘met’ the story that would guide me through life, that would teach so many life-lessons and that would be there for me in the darkest times, ready to save myself. But let’s not get too dramatic, I don’t want to bore you all. I still don’t know why, though I’ve tried, the reason why I used to judge the majority of things that I love now as being bad things. But something that I’ve learned in life is that if you’ll need something it’ll come to you at one way or other, I do not believe that people prefer one story, or band, or music over other just for the simple sake of it. They do because it came to them when they most needed or in a time when they perhaps could not understand why but it’d find its path for their hearts, thru a way anything else has ever done. Yes, I didn’t give much credit at first sight to The Lord Of The Rings. Found that name completely strange, and somehow too fancy for a movie that didn’t promise much for my 9 years of life. And how I regret it, I refused watching it at the theaters when my mom took me there. Then she rented it. She put the video tape on, and it begun. I was invaded by a world that I could had never pictured, even in my craziest and deepest dreams. Every second was leaving in me its print. Every line was being written in my brain. And every character gained a very special place in my heart. And although I was too little to know the reason, the story was carved in my soul, it stayed with me, because it meant something, even if I was too young to understand why. So, yes although Middle-Earth has opened its biggest door to age to the whole humanity, I only walked through it at 2002. And it has been the best road I’ve choosen, or perhaps been leaded through so far. Although I love everything I’ve read by Tolkien (and it’s not been few books, btw), none, none comes close to what LOTR means to me. The so warming story that has came to the child of me so freely and so selflessly. I’m forever grateful to J.R.R. Tolkien for had brought to us a window to another reality, and for Peter Jackson for had stuck to his dream of bringing the masterpiece into life. I’ll forever hold this date dear to my heart.
HAPPY FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING 10 YEARS ANNIVERSARY!!!
It's been 10 years today since The Fellowship of the Ring was released worldwide.
I’m old… I know I don’t look it, but I’m beginning to feel it in my hobbit heart. 10 years ago was the day the world had the chance to enter the most fantastic world ever brought to life. I know somehow, J.R.R. Tolkien would be proud of it! May our fandom keep as strong and unite as ever <3
