Question about Frodo leaving the Shire
Well, I am into the Fellowship of the Ring right now(I have read the books annually since 1983). There is one thing I have always wondered.
I am at the part where Frodo, Sam and Pippin met up with the High Elves in the Shire after seeing one of the Nazgul on the road. Why were the elves going the same direction as Frodo and Co.? I always thought that Elves in that part of the world were traveling West to jump on a ship and not come back.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW, what a ride!"
