... sometimes there are days when I feel like I am spiritually in Mordor myself. Never physically. My physical surroundings are quite ordinary. My life is a good one. It is only in my mind that I feel a shadow creeping.
Like the elves, I feel a longing for the sea, a longing to be elsewhere, a feeling that I am not really of this world, that I am out of place, that I was made for some place else. There are days when I want to escape to the sea and never return.
But it will not be this day.
