Borin quickly wrote this poem on a standing stone:
“Borin was here,
he now is o’erthere
The brown predator that came a minute later could not read,
a slight, but deadly oversight in Borin’s perfect plan.
In his final moments Borin could not stop this rhyme from popping up:
“Borin was here,
how appropriate the past tense now is, bear”
“I should’ve done more to appease the gods,” Borin thought. He was hanging with his head down above a deep cleft. He could see the water of a stream flowing around rocks with jagged edges. The troll holding one of his legs was about to throw him in. “And,” he observed, surprised by his own calm as he was falling down, “why did i order a stupid fruit shake instead of a double espresso macchiato?”
Gerardo Marti, author of A Mosaic of Believers and Hollywood Faith, and upcoming recognized expert on all things evangelical has started a weblog. Gerardo once confided to me he had been an evangelical pastor (in the church he describes in Mosaic) and had read several European theologians like Karl Barth and Bonhoeffer — that alone would have triggered my interest in his weblog, but he also happens to be an an excellent sociologist of religion. So this is a must follow.
My dad recently won the Frisian chess championship for seniors (60+). In his younger years he unsuccessfully tried his hand before, but now he has won convincingly with six points out of seven. He acts like winning the championship is nothing, but we, his family, are very proud!
