"If adventures will not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad." (Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey)

“It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door… You step into the Road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” (J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring)

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.

A Note On My Age

There must be glitch in the Blogger system. I just thought it would be prudent to announce that I am neither 1,927 years old, and that I was not born in 1927. I'm just 27, though there are those who still think me a teenager. I'll be carded until I'm 77.

I prefer to think of myself as ageless.
