I’m not much given to thinking about big things in the course of a usual day. Fact is, I like routine, the security of repetition, having a “regular” way to fall back on.

But in my own way, I think about big things all the time. Really big things - shoots of new green life that mean the earth still believes in spring; the beautiful sigh of a new keg of ale being opened; how roads go there, and back again.

I took a deep breath, and one more step… and was the farthest I had ever been from home.


This drabble concerns Sam's decision to go with Frodo. (Movie-verse)

It was written for a challenge at Henneth Annun where you can find my work under the name fileg.
