I’ve never believed in an afterlife, but if I did, I would want it to be how Tolkien described it through Gandalf – “No, the journey doesn’t end here. Death is just another path… One that we all must take. The grey rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass… and then you see it. White shores.. and beyond. A far green country under a swift sunrise.”
Tolkien would have been 125 this year. He may be long gone, but he will forever live on through his mythology.
“The road goes ever on and on…”
