Ahead lies adventure


The season that kindles adventure



In the company of Autumn


Source photographic elements: North Yorkshire moorland

A need to venture far from home
Is pressing high above all other tasks
But let hesitation have its short hour
For ahead but a short distant is Autumn
With air that kindles a sense of adventure

“Bad End seemed a more desirable residence than it had for years, and he wanted to savour as much as he could of his last summer in the Shire.  When autumn came, he knew that part at least of his heart would think more kindly of journeying, as it always did at that season.”

The Fellowship of the Ring Chapter III Three is company  p.65
The Lord of the Rings Book I (J.R.R Tolkien)
