The Tolkien Family is very unhappy with the new movie. I just had a vision that my Tolkien movie will be made in Russia when Putin is out of power. I believe he is going to die soon. Consider my heartfelt lecture on movie-making that I posted four days ago. Lara is my protégé. I am her teacher trapped in the old body of a Wise Man. I am Merlin, and she is Vivien. A new theatre will be born from our – bond!
She is………..A Rose Among the Woodwose!

Lewis Carrol took a family photo of the Rossettis, who he was close to.
