lotrc: family and childhood

My family has never understood my love of speculative fiction but now that were going to take matching tattoos with my big sister and It’ll be my first so I’ve decided it to be Tolkien tribute like one of the earlier confessors is going to do, but mine will be White tree of Gondor. My sis will be taking a tree of other kind but in the same style representing that we are different trees from the same forest. We’re different but she means the world to me.

I didn’t have a grandfather with me growing up, and my grandmother died when I was really young and I always had this void that couldn’t be filled because I felt I was missing out on so much. When I read LoTR Gandalf filled that void and I always saw him as a grandfather figure to go to when in need. He didn’t make me feel I was missing out so much because I had him.

There is only one thing I want. My father died after a battle against cancer, he has endured so much pain without complaining. The only thing I wish is that before exhaling his last breath, he heard the voice of Galadriel telling him not to worry because she would remain with him until the end. For me Galadriel is a some sort of angel, and the only thing I wish for is that he heard her voice while she was singing “Into the West” for him.
