I felt a sense of achievement when finally managing to complete my scholar studies. All of a sudden it felt as though the elves of Rivendell held me in much higher esteem. No longer did I sense that they were smirking whilst I told tales and sang my ballads of wars of the past. Of course, most of the elves remember these battles first-hand!
It occurred to me that I should make better use of my recently acquired skills. Discussions with my hobbit friend Pashbo led to me thirsting for the excitement that a quest with real purpose has. Not wanting to recreate his journey, I set my mind considering what quest I could undertake that would be both rewarding and make good use of my scholaring. It was then that I had an idea…….
Why not travel as much of Middle Earth as I am able, and visit the scenes and landmarks of epic battles and important events? In doing so, not only will I myself witness many great sights, but also I can teach my fellow kin members and any other readers of my journals the key histories of this land.
My project will commence shortly, starting in Ered Luin and the Blue Mountains. I do hope that you will join me on my travels.
