Description of the depicted scene: Some days after coming back home from his adventure Mr. Bilbo Baggins, having had the time to process what happened during his long journey, feels emotionally devastated not only because of the loss of his friends, but also for the loss of the person he used to be, finding out that he doesn't entirely belong at home now, and can't fit in his life in Hobbiton as before, dealing alone with nostalgia, emptiness, grieving his friends; the loneliness seems to fullfil his dining room, so he went out Over The Hill and, in attempt to close that chapter of the past and seal his sorrow, he burns down Thorin's letter and the first pages of his memories.The picture is inspired half from the books, especially the poem "I sit beside the fire and think", half from the movies in the graphic form, in order to make the character portrayed recognizable.
