Author has written 11 stories for Lord of the Rings, King Arthur, and Silmarillion.

“It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again, who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause; who at best, knows the triumph of high achievement; and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.” Teddy Roosevelt

My favorite poem is Ulysses by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Below are some of my favorite portions from this wonderful work.

I am a part of all I have met; yet all experience is an arch wherethro' gleams that untraveled world whose margin fades forever and ever when I move.

Old age hath yet his honor and his toil; death closes all: but something ere the end, some work of noble note, may yet be done, not unbecomming men that strove with gods.

Come, my friends, tis not too late to seek a newer world.

Tho much is taken, much abides; and tho we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are; one equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will to strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.

I leave you with this thought. "Freedom is only a word until you have been close to losing it." Taylor

June 2013: After a long absence I am once again attempting to write. I hope that you will bear with me as I take the first steps back. :)
