Gandalf was one of a number of the Miare(sp?) sent to Middle Earth to warn, teach, and organize resistance to that other Miare Saron. Tom was one who had never left. As Gandalf said of him, "He is a moss gatherer and I have been doomed to roll..."

ahh, "please do bend down to the one called The Green Man". We always took Tom B to be the Green Man of old celtic mythology.

A great XTC song:
"Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman
He wants to make you his bride
Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman
Forever to him you're tied

And you know for a million years he has been your lover
He'll be a million more
And you know for a million years he has been your lover
Down through the skin to the core
Heed the Greenman
Heed the Greenman

Please to dance round for the one called the Greenman
He wants to make you his child
Please to dance round for the one called the Greenman
Dressed in the fruits of the wild

And you know for a million years he has been your father
He'll be a million more
And you know for a million years he has been your father
Run to his arms at the door

Lay your head, lay your head, lay your head, lay your head on the Greenman
Lay your head, lay your head with mine
Lay your head, lay your head, lay your head, lay your head on the Greenman
Build a bed out of oak and pine

See the Greenman blow his kiss from high church wall
An unknowing church will amplify his call

Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman
He wants to make you his bride
Please to bend down for the one called the Greenman
Forever to him you're tied

And you know for a million years he has been your lover
He'll be a million more
And you know for a million years he has been your lover
Down to the skin to the core.."

Could someone please explain his relationship with Goldberry?

Christine, I've answered your question as best I can in a main entry in the blog.

Use a dictionary and grammar guide constantly. Keep a small English dictionary with you at all time. When you see a new word, look it up. Think about the word - use it, in your mind, in a sentence.

You're a braver woman than I it was weeks before I could even begin to think about looking at the incisions from my lap. Even now I don't like to touch them.

They're...squishy.

Comparison, more than reality, makes men happy or wretched. Do you think so?

He is such a brave man with a strong personality. I admire him so much.
