Quote from Tolkien

I like this quote because it seems like it is about travelling when in fact it is about perception.

J.R.R Tolkien

Practicing my calligraphy with one of my favorite quotes

This poem is from The Lord of the Rings:
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

    Your calligraphy is beautiful! I, too, like this quote and agree that it’s about perception as much as travel. So much can be discovered when one simply wanders!
