At a Glance

a twenty-something wandering reader with a pen and paper, using photos as footsteps for storytelling.

“We were born in a dark age out of due time (for us). But there is this comfort: otherwise we should not KNOW, or so much love, what we do love. I imagine the fish out of water is the only fish to have an inkling of water. Also we have still small swords to use. ‘I will not bow before the Iron Crown, nor cast my own small golden sceptre down.’ Have at the Orcs, with winged words, hildenæddran (war-adders), biting darts – but make sure of the mark, before shooting.” -J.R.R. Tolkien, in a letter to his youngest son during WWII

“a dragon is no idle fancy” – J.R.R. Tolkien
