Happy Birthday to John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973)

I had planned on writing a massive paragraph dedicated to his genius and attempting to explain the influence he’s had on me and many others but there are no words in the English language substantial enough to do so. Though, Tolkien would have probably found them, then written the words into a sentence of such profound eloquence in the way that only he could. He produced the greatest work of fantasy fiction ever written, which essentially reinvented the genre, and gave it to the world. Born in 1892, he would’ve been 121 years old today, 9 years younger than Gerontius ‘The Old’ Took.
