For those of you with it at hand, get your Fellowship Of The Ring soundtrack and go to Number 17. Listen to the beginning of the song and wait for it...wait for it...
Frodo: Go back, Sam. I'm going to Mordor alone.
Sam: Of course you are. And I'm coming with you.
..I was blessed with one phone call to feel an ounce of what they must have felt. This part of the movie grips me like none other and reminds me of Rachel. When she called, her voice shaking and unsteady, it soon reminded me of this part and how years have passed and we have both changed but our friendship has not. I know we would go to the very fires of Morder for each other. Yet now, miles and hours apart we rely and sit upon what Bilbo used to say: "It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."
