Book of Hours 10
For the reverse side of my book, I didn't want to leave it blank, so I created a full-length (80 inches!) image taking the hills of Hope, Maine, from winter through spring, summer and autumn, back to winter, and from night through morning, noon, afternoon and back to night. I still love Aragorn's Song (known back in the day as Strider's Poem) by J.R.R. Tolkien, from the Lord of the Rings. I used it as my senior quote, and it is so apt to life in general, not just the books. It is written in acrylic ink with dip pen.
All that is gold does not glitter,
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
-- J.R.R. Tolkien
