Like Clockwork

Every tax season towards the end I repeat this Lord of the Ring scene in my head. It's EXACTLY how I feel right now, just replace "the Shire" with "Life outside of tax season" and "wheel of fire" with "IRS". Almost.... there....

Samwise Gamgee: Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It'll be spring soon, and the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they'll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields. And they'll be eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?
Frodo Baggins: No, Sam. I can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, nor the touch of grass. Instead, 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!
