Raise a glass to The Professor!

The Birthday of
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien
Enchanting Writer, Beloved Professor &
Explorer 0f the Secondary Creation
All that is Gold does not glitter;
Not all who wander are lost.
In contrast to his friend and fellow Inkling, C. S. Lewis, Tolkien approached the imaginative as its own reality. He tried to carefully explore and describe what he termed the "secondary creation," the realm of the real imaginary, what Jung would refer to as the Collective Unconscious.

January 3rd, 1892 – 1973
