I am an amateur astronomer who enjoys spending clear (but not too cold) nights under the stars with my telescope. My favorite subject to view is the Moon. When you look into a telescope and see the craters and mare up close you feel as if you can almost touch it!
I am also an avid Tolkien fan. I have read The Silmarillion, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings dozens of times, as well as his other works. I like to collect editions of all of these books illustrated by various artists. I think my favorite edition of The Hobbit is the one illustrated by Jemima Catlin.
