A man may love the truth and practise it,
Beauty he may admire,
And goodness not omit,
As much as may befit
But only when these three together meet,
As they always incline,
And make one soul the seat,
And favorite retreat,
Henry David Thoreau
By now I hope all Richard Armitage fans have seen all the photos, and videos, and lovely stories shared by all the wonderful people that were lucky to attend Sir Ian McKellen's show at the Opera House in Wellington, NZ on June 23. Seeing photos and video of Richard Armitage again after months of not having any news made for a blissful Saturday.
I thought I would revisit some of my favorite moments so far in the countdown to The Hobbit:

The Powhiri is one of my favorite Richard Armitage moments. If someone asked me to make them understand why I like him so very much I would first show them this video.

Hobbit Happenings Ahead:
Thanks to news from Sir Ian McKellen those of us in the US, especially the Eastern US, now know that there will be a Hobbit premiere in New York City. As it happens only a few hours away from me, so at this moment I am planning on being there. But when will it be?
I signed up for an alert of when Hobbit tickets would go on sale in my area and the date of the opening here was December 13. So, is it opening on December 13 in select cities, and then on December 14 nationwide in the US? It happens with many films. So that is my fun Hobbit task for the next few months, find out if the New York premiere will be December 12, 13 or 14 or when...and where in the city? Any of my fellow fans planning on going as well?
But next for us Armitage and Hobbit fans is Comic-Con in a few weeks! Exciting Times.
