    A strange but beautiful short story To me it seems to convey the importance of art and especially of artists No matter how small their skill it should be allowed to grow develop and not be repressed or dismissed An artist's work cannot flourish on it own it also needs support and appreciation and sometimes it becomes a collective venture My favourite passage is the first description of what would eventually become the Leaf painti

    A wonderful little tale by Tolkien that everyone should read Although those who really do need to read it will not read it A great way to learn about selflessness responsibility art friendship meaning power and so much And so skillfully done The world has a lot to learn from Tolkien if they'd read between the lines
