In a hole in the ground

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… the opening words by Tolkien come round again with the premiere of the Hobbit.

Ramsey Margolis, my counterpart in New Zealand, is nearby it all and we’ve compared notes on the co-operative dimension.

It seems to amount to a sense that teamwork pays when you are facing a dragon, and that treasure is better shared than hoarded. It’s still good advice for our times, especially for any of us with our heads below ground.
