Spoiler: If by "whats the deal" you mean why did he do it?

Frodo was touched by the rings powers, and would never be the same. He could never live the pastoral life that Hobbits should live and lived through the hell of having the ring.. A changed Hobbit.. The "golden land" was one of no pain, no loss.. He had already lost so much

I love that tag

It's sorta like Spoiler: A kid from a small rural town in the US going off to Vietnam for 3 years, seeing the atrocities, living through horrible living conditions, etc, etc and then going home and trying to "get back to his normal life". The experience has made him a new person, so they no longer fit in with the people in his life prior to the war. They have to move on.

Yep. Same here, Rubyee. The only thing I can add is that "Lord of the Rings 3" is pretty inaccurate. I mean, it's not a sequel, it's more like a continuation. But that's nitpicky crap that nobody cares about.

The "golden land" is basically heaven on middle earth. I don't think that Frodo and Bilbo were allowed to live in Aman proper (with the gods), but I believe on the island of Eressa with the Teleri elves, which is just off the coast of the "golden land."

Tolkein's Middle Earth for Dummies is a great source for all this kind of info
Embracing the goddess energy within yourselves will bring all of you to a new understanding and valuing of life. A vision that inspires you to live and love on planet Earth. Like a priceless jewel buried in dark layers of soil and stone, Earth radiates her brilliant beauty into the caverns of space and time. Perhaps you are aware of those who watch over your home And experience of this place to visit and play with reality. You are becoming aware of yourself as a gamemaster...
