The Lifestyle Chronicles - Lessons

It has been thirty years since I first read The Lord Of The Rings and many times since then the story has entered my thoughts. The recent movies did a marvelous job of capturing the magic but this is a story that is best digested by reading.

We knew all along that Frodo and Samwise would accomplish their task but not without a lot of difficulty and effort. Frodo was tempted by the ring but in the end succeeds in its destruction with unlikely help from Gollum. The contribution of Gollum is unintended on his part but crucial for completion of the task. Sarumon is a powerful white wizard but gazes too deeply into the crystal and falls under the spell of Sauron, the Dark Lord of Mordor. The loyalty and trust between Frodo and Samwise are tested severly but in the end sustains them.

It is just a story but think about it.
