22 September: The Hobbit Day!…

Today is a Happy Day, where I feel not only authorized, but invited to express openly the Hobbit in me!!!  I mean, inside me there is also the Elf of course,  and the Numenorean, and the Man of Rohan, and the Ent, and the Dwarf now too, thanks to Peter Jackson’s thirteen great Dwarves in ‘The Hobbit’; and I am not forgetting the Orc that’s trying to hide in the remaining shadows of my being; but today is the Day of the Hobbit, so I will gleefully indulge the Hobbit in me!
This morning I started already with an Early Breakfast, followed by the Second Breakfast no Hobbit will miss… And then today being Saturday,  my usual ‘work session’ with my usual colleague and friend will happen this afternoon, but it will be exceptionally preceded by a proper Lunch, as we will open especially today the big can of a French gastronomic treat she brought back for me after her recent trip to France: she stayed for a while in the very region of France where since centuries that savory treat is traditionally produced, among the many other ones that region is famous for… This is not the season, alas, for strawberries with cream, but I am sure my friend will find in our Auroville Bakery some other dessert worthy of today’s Hobbity Celebration!

Sunday 23rd:
The whole day went nicely, but this little post didn’t make it on my blog in time, because of an exceptionally long power cut in the night, when my friend had gone back home, the day was over and I intended to finally post this text.
I do it at least today then, while still in that cheerfully childish mood that is the normal gift of the Hobbits… when they are not, like Bilbo and Frodo and friends, turning into unexpected heroes and saving not only Erebor or the Shire but the entire Middle-earth!…

      I go barefoot it all the time inside my house, the Indian way; but to do it all the time and everywhere like a Hobbit does, that I cannot do: thankfully, being part of the Big Folk, I don’t have the furry and thick soled feet that a Hobbit has!!! 😀
      What about you?! Did you do anything especially Hobbity yesterday?

    did something special, not directly related to hobbits though. I was studying till late last night with a group of friends and thought I should bless them. So I made hand gestures of sending positive energy. One said she could feel the flow of energy. Felt nice to make others happy, still basking in that glow 🙂

      Yes, blessing others has that effect of blessing yourself too!…
      And real friendship IS something Hobbity… Look at Sam and Merry and Pippin, who followed Frodo into this dreadful adventure with the Ring, just out of concern for him…
