Have you ever been in a place and time where you have no pressing responsibilities and end up just doing, well, nothing all day? I’ve been in a place like that for a few days myself. After the hectic end of the semester and a good deal of business during the holidays I’ve appreciated the time, but I’m trying to get some stuff done now. I’m moving on campus in a few weeks (and the semester starts the next day) so I’d like to do more with this site while I still have plenty of time.
For now I have taken a break from writing about purism to write about the books specifically. Some of you may have noticed that a few weeks ago a new page appeared amongst the links at the top of each page called The Lore of Arda. Some sub-pages have now been added, giving an overview of of Tolkien’s books with a brief discussion of canon and a consideration of the age-old question of Balrog wings. I have a number of other pages in the early stages of development as well, so look for that (and more about purism) in the coming weeks.
