Hi Lynn & colleagues:
Maybe this will put everyone off their feed:
I remember someone in 2002 or so referring to
the depiction of Sauron's Eye as resembling "A
Flaming V (initial for a female body part)".
Too Many Cocker Spaniels in the clouds for my
tastes... Grandpa J.R.R.T. would have had a spoon
way down his throat by now.
I just leaned back & savored the movies: shining on
the scholastic lacks and savoring the artistic
achievements, hoping they would be lures for future
Mythopoeics. But I never got to go to Grad School, so
maybe my insights aren't all that formidable.
