and walking
…on a night of rain Frodo smelled a sweet fragrance on the air and heard the sound of singing that came over the water. And then it seemed to him that as in his dream in the house of Bombadil, the grey rain-curtain turned all to silver glass and was rolled back, and he beheld white shores and beyond them a fair green country under a swift sunrise.

I really have no idea. He loved to think, and he loved the company of friends.

He taught at the college and wrote books and drank beer with his buddies down at the Bird and Baby.
He loved to take long walks, and he loved to listen to Chopin.

Hellooooo!?
Have you looked at the material on this excellent site?

Did your teacher expect you to walk into the middle of a crowd of strangers and ask questions? Or did she expect you to read, look at books, and use online resources? Using a site for information doesn't mean ask on the forums, it means look at the material that is there.

Hint: try some of the white buttons just underneath the title of the site.
