Happy Anniversary! 3 years ago, on May 19th, 2014, I began the Middle Earth Community. I started it as a haven for more-serious Tolkien fans who had perhaps (like myself) grown tired of all the memes and irreverence in the larger Lord of the Rings/ Tolkien communities here.
It eventually became a library of conversations, art, recommendations and story quotes, as well as the place where I originally met many wonderful people who make G+ my second home.
Ever since the passing of our resident painter, +Jef Murray in the summer of 2015, my heart has been heavy whenever I think of the Middle Earth Community... But although it's been a bit quiet lately, I still want to express my love & appreciation for the people who make the Middle Earth Community a beautiful place, reflective of Tolkien's creation.
Thank you to the moderators, +Richard Rohlin, +Jeremiah Burns, +Tom Hillman, +Tamas Ferencz, and to +martin Bassett who was there on day one.
I would love to see the community flourish again with inspirational offerings from the scholars as well as the more casual reader like myself.
Cheers! Happy 3 Year Anniversary!
