The fellowship of the fellowship of the ring

The last time I watched the trilogy, I was in college. Adding the hobbit trilogy (edited) in the morning was new, and it was a good addition- I never finished the hobbit trilogy before (I found its pacing too slow, and the expanded stuff too boring). Let me tell you, it’s good to watch that every decade or so. Epics like that have a way of helping you frame your own life in a way that’s larger than life. I may not adventure against earth-ending baddies, but I have friends and that’s pretty epic when you think about it.


The only natural conclusion

I’m blessed to have many intelligent friends who are happy to talk life out with me. Without them, I’d fall prey to narcissism in a heartbeat. They keep me humble. But is humility really humility if the only reason it exists is because I’m constantly being humbled?

One of the reasons I’ve had the time to start making comic strips again is because I’m currently on sabbatical! It wraps up in a couple weeks. I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly. Highlights have included family time, studies, and pursuing interests I wouldn’t otherwise have time to pursue.

Really, the only difficult thing about the sabbatical has been this: when you work at a church, sabbatical means you are away from many of the people who regularly speak into your life. I’m looking forward to getting back at it!
