The Professor’s Birthday

On the third day of Jan­u­ary, in the year 1892, in the city of Bloem­fontein in what is now South Africa, a child was born. 

A child who would grow to become this man.

It is real­ly impos­si­ble to quan­ti­fy how much, how pro­found­ly, one man and his cre­ative work could shape my life; I am sure I am not alone in feel­ing this way.

Hap­py Birth­day, Pro­fes­sor Tolkien, and thank you.
