As it happened we were walking the same way. Fortunately, the weather was lovely, and it felt like a path opened up in front of us for us to chat as she made her way home, an opportunity to chat things through and to distract her with something...

Hobbits have cosy homes, but they are also (famously!) capable of great courage and adventure. We humans like to travel and take on new challenges, but we also like very much to have a comfortable home to come back to. I feel most sorry for people...
