I Will Take You Away

Under The Night Starry Sky

— Angus and Julia Stone, Take You Away

When your feeling down
And your sky is grey
And the people that you love
Well they have nothing lovely
To say

When your days are long
And lonlier than before
When your bed is cold
And the sheep are at your door

I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you,
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away

When you’re tired of working
Like a slave
And the smell of the coffee bean,
Well it just won’t go away
And your friends, well they’ve got
Nothing good to say
You just call out my name

And I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you,
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away

And I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you,
I’ll take you away
I’ll take you away

love

~    J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

In this scene, Frodo is lamenting all that has transpired: Bilbo’s discovery of the ring, his unwelcome possession of it, the threat of rising evil, and the burden he must bear  to destroy it.

Gandalph wisely points out that we do not get to choose the time we are born into or even how long we stay on this earth, but we do have control over how we spend the time we have.

To say this quote is one of my favorites would not come close to describing the profound effect it…
