The First of the Strawberries with Cream, Part Two

No, Sam. I can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, nor the touch of grass. I'm naked in the dark. There's nothing--no veil between me and the wheel of fire. I can see him with my waking eyes.
- Frodo Baggins, right after Samwise said yesterday's quote in the film

If we can deconstruct this passage for symbolism, Frodo is really talking about how springtime allergies are killing him and his resentment of methamphetamine addicts - how their bootlegging ways ruined easy access to pseudophedrine for the rest of us.

That's all for today. Goodnight, everybody!
