To be or not to be a Tolkien fan?

The quest to be or not to be a Tolkien fan began when my mind started conjuring up various hypothesis regarding his genius's plot holes.
My regard for his work grows as I understand the efforts he made to create a mythology. At times I wonder, why he wrote certain stories in a certain way, for indeed writing is an expression, and I think there was a certain idea he wanted to convey. So my quest continues as my mind ponders these mysteries of Tolkien

Other than this particular obsession, I have a general interest in mythology. I think when people are given abstract ideas, they tend to comprehend it by giving fillers to the abstract idea from their known world. What has this to do with myth making? Absolutely everything. This is a quest that I haven't made much progress on.

Currently I am trying to link these two quests and coming to terms with everything else I am supposed to do ;). Anything else about me, I find it boring to describe.
