TBT: Lord of the Rings

Ah, Lord of the Rings. This was/is one of the greatest series of movies in my living history. The image above if from Return of the King which, good lord, came out in 2003. Yeah, 14 years ago it came out and when it comes on TNT or TBS, I will still put it on no matter how many times I have seen it.

I love these movies because they are epic on so many levels. The story is great as Frodo and the ring make their way to Mordor but to me, the battles are the best. I love the war scenes as the Orcs, men, elves, and a dwarf all battle it out to save Middle Earth. The Return of the King has arguably the biggest battle in the entire series with Rohan riding to save Gondor. It is so epic as the horse lords ride into the Orcs and save the day, if only for a short time. They are doing well before those elephants get called it. The movies are so good and even after 14 years, they are still great even compared to what rolls out of Hollywood these days.

Manic Monday: Emotion

Japan talk on the blog has cooled down quite a bit, which is my fault. Work is still going but the amount of Japan blogs have dropped. I just have not had enough to put together for a cohesive blog to post on the page, so thus, it has been quiet. I need to change that and simply get my ass moving. The end of the month is fast approaching and the goal I set for myself draws closer with it.

So about the title of this quick Monday blog, I watched a video last night of a guy visiting Tokyo and going to a few places I am wanting to add to my dream list. And honestly while watching this video, I got a little tear in my eye and felt some emotion stir up. Why did that happen? Well, I’m not really sure, but if I had to guess its I saw my dream right before my eyes and it seems so far away. This trip is daunting to me, I will up front about that. I have repeatedly said I am afraid to travel alone and to go to such a different country on my own, but I have to find that courage and just make it happen. I am a grown adult that has a dream and I will see it done.
