all that is gold does not glitter

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

J.R.R. Tolkien

This one means a lot to me. I even have the second line on the back of my Jeep.

For a while I forgot where the line even came from, until I was reminded of the poem in Lord of the Rings. So there you go. Decades of memory float up and reveal themselves. Amazing how we keep it all.


yet another site rebuild

One of the last updates for an add-on brought in some corruption that caused a redirect to somewhere overseas whenever I tried to manage the site. I tried to clean it up, but to no avail. I then re-installed and attempted an import of previously saved posts, also to no avail.

Thus, we begin anew. and that’s ok too.

So welcome, to the future.
