Ring of the Nibelung

Rue Sandlach

The above photo is taken down at the end of rue Sandlach, Haguenau, near the Maison du Forestier (which you can see in the left of the photo). The road then cuts back to the right into Haguenau, just on the other side of the telephone line.  It comes out at the roundabout at Porte du Wissembourg and provides a handy shortcut into town. There is no snow in the photo, however the ground is frozen solid.

I was reading an interesting article on the link between Wagner and Tolkein’s works. The major weakness, perhaps, with the arguement of this critic is that the Ring of the Nibelung is not Wagner’s story. I am not really qualified to comment further. Gogo is the big Tolkein fan in our family, and she seems to have emailed us a criticism of the final LOTR film. I have already voiced my reservations about the theatrical version of the third film, but as I haven’t yet seen it I didn’t read her critique (she warned us that it contained a spoiler).

It’s a bit difficult to adjust to being back at work this week, after the break. I’m looking forward to the weekend - I’ll be popping down to Switzerland for a bit of skiing with Carles, Ash and Marcus.  Hopefully I will be able to post over the weekend. If not, have a good one yourselves!

I have an email backlog to sometime before Christmas.  I’ll try to clear it within the next week.
