“It Would Be a Merrier World”


Hi friends, just popping in for a quick quote. I found this gem in The Hobbit the other day as I was rereading it. Thorin Oakenshield says this to Bilbo towards the end of the book:

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

Of course, this thought really applies to cases of wealth—most of us need sufficient “gold” first in order to have food, cheer, and song—but I’m applying it figuratively to my life as a reminder to relax and enjoy simple pleasures as I can.

May your week be filled with increased food, cheer, song, and merriment!

      Thanks, Georgette! Yes, things are going well—rather more busily than I’d prefer, actually, as I suddenly got a lot of freelance writing jobs at once. But that’s a good thing, and it’s doable.
      I hope your semester has gotten off to a good start!
