About me…

“Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

Good friends mean the world to me.

“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

Sometimes this quote is true in my life.

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.
“So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

This is my life quote.

“Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.”
J.R.R. Tolkien (The Fellowship of the Ring)

I try to see things from all perspectives.

My journey takes me on paths that often twist in new directions, but my soul is strong and older than it should be.

My friends call me Aimee…I have been writing for a while, but I finally decided to share my story in blog format.  Tolkien’s quote “The burned hand teaches best.” is the theme for my blog because I have learned from my mistakes.  Well, sort of…and if I haven’t, at least I can use humor to get through life.

    1. Thank you very much! I write in a very “eclectic” style and rarely go back and edit what I type. I started writing in high school, but never showed anyone…ha. So the blog is just putting it all out there:)

  1. Hi, I found your blog completely by accident as I was researching hemochromatosis of which I share with you. I started reading your everyday blog and quotes and really enjoyed them. You are a really good writer and seem to have life’s ups and downs pretty well coined. I hope you don’t mind, I copied your Mother Teresa quote to my FB. Keep up the good work!


  2. Hi Aimee,
    It is very nice to meet you. I ran across your blog through Facebook and couldn’t stop reading. I am trying to overcome some physical and mental obstacles in order to dive into becoming an author, something I have always waned to be. I think your blog may have a little of the medicine that I need to help me get over my fear of failure. As an adult (48), I can say that each failure is a stepping stone towards success, and I can almost believe it. As a child who grew up in a dysfunctional, alcoholic home, I was taught that failure was bad, wrong and unacceptable, not a ntural part of the path to success. So, as I jump off thr high-dive board into this business of writing, I plan on keeping your blog nearby, for a little bit of encouragement and blessed truth.
    Thank You,
    Jim Sullivan


    1. Thank you so much Jim. I over share now maybe because I got tired of all the “normal” people who hide what really happens in life. Life is about trial and error. As you can see I have many trials, but we all have our battles. Keep going, and believe you can succeed! Write something everyday. 🙂


  3. Tremendous work with the quotes, Aimee! Of course I’m heavily biased towards the works and author you cite, and towards the easing of suffering, but you still pick your passages extremely well. If I might ask, where is the pain teacher citation from? Oh, and thanks for following my poor fare – Greg


    1. Tolkien brings lots of his background into the LoTR and education through experience is a theme. Gandalf instructs Pippin in a longer passage that actually reads You knew you were behaving wrongly and foolishly; and you told yourself so, though you did not listen. He goes on to tell him On the contrary! No, the burned hand teaches best. After that, advice about fire goes to the heart. Thank you for commenting!
