75/365: T.F.

He was home schooled, and quite a bit younger than me but mature for his age so it was easy to forget that. One of the last times I saw him before we lost touch he turned to me and said "I think Tom Bombadil is God." I disagreed with him at the time but later when I thought it out, it made sense. Six years later, we crossed paths again and for the first time ever he was taller than me. I admire his dedication and conviction about causes, but I think he could also benefit from learning some tact.
