Master strokes my face, and my Samwise pats my neck, and I am as content as I can be in such a place as this. More content than I would be, left behind, even in that most comfortable of stables, safe from wind and want.

That's so lovely.

Author Reply: Aw, thanks for the smile today.

Love the foreshadowing of the Wraiths on Wings! And of course they've come to their first dead end. At least Bill knows which way to avoid so as not to fall back under the power of his Old Misery. And poor Shivering-Merry! Heh!

Author Reply: Yes -- I thought it interesting that JRRT alluded to those dead ends (swamps and cliffs) even though he said Aragorn "knew... this land even in the dark". So apparently, though Aragorn knew the land, he didn't know every path, it seems. Lots of scope for the imagination here, more than I'd realized, simply looking at a list of how many miles the Fellowship (probably) covered each day in order to get from Rivendell to Hollin in two weeks.
