I just finished Return of the King for something between the 7th and 10th time. I've lost track. I've read the others almost as often. I'm sorry but I love the scene in the movie, Fellowship of the Ring where Arwen brings Frodo to the river and leans over him and prays, "What grace is given me, give to him." What a wonderful prayer. I always thought that she was too distant in the book... too much an old bachelor don's fantasy. Jackson fleshes her out. This is a mother's prayer, a lover's prayer, truer love than this etc sort of love.

I've taken to making hash marks by five's in the front of books I re-read so I'll know how many times I've consumed them. ;-)
