A bong in the shape of Treebeard from Lord of the Rings figures prominently in my play PALMYRA, NJ. A girl I knew in high school (she's now an anthropology professor) made one in art class.

I was inspired to re-read LOTR - this time starting with The Hobbit and reading it all in order, and not skipping the boring parts in the middle of The Two Towers.


  1. Nice picture!
    Would it be all right for me to use it in a blog post I am about to make?
    Kind regards,

  2. Yes if you include a link to the original post:

    Best regards,
