The Road Goes Ever On And On

path to God's greatest blessing
The Road goes ever on and on Out from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, Let others follow it who can! Let them a journey new begin, But I at last with weary feet Will turn towards the lighted inn, My evening-rest and sleep to meet. ~LOTR, JRR Tolkien

I love this little song from the Lord Of The Rings, a Hobbit walking song. I sometimes think the opening words in my head…

Vitamin B 1 Deficiency

Here are a few good links on foods high in Thiamine (B 1) and symptoms of deficiency.

Waiting on the Lord,

Clinging to this keyboard,

Playing the “how long psalm” in my head.
