I took this photo a few days ago. . . and these days are so days of the past already. Tonight, you'd not find anyone driving around in a convertible with the top down, not with the roads just west of us being closed because of snow, 70 mph wind, and blizzard warnings. Sigh. But I knew I had to seize the moment and snap this shot when I saw this vehicle in front of me. And you'll be happy to know that at least we were at a stoplight!
Becky tagged me, and here's my page 56:
"What kind of god is that? What is there to inspire in this Son?
Love, said Father Martin.
And this Son appears only once, long ago, far away? Among an obscure tribe in a backwater of West Asia on the confines of a long-vanished empire? Is done away with before He has a single grey hair in His head? Leaves not a single descendant, only scattered, partial testimony, His complete works doodles in the dirt? Wait a minute. This is more than Brahman with a serious case of stage fright. This is Brahman selfish. This is Brahman ungenerous and unfair. This is Brahman practically unmanifest. If Brahman is to have only one son, He must be as abundant as Krishna with the milkmaids, no? Wat could justify such divine stinginess?
Love, repeated Father Martin."
From Life of Pi, by Yann Martel. This is an incredible, phenomenal book about a boy stranded in a boat on the Pacific ocean with a Bengal tiger.
Here’s the rules of the tag:
1. Get the book on your nightstand (or whatever book you are currently reading).
2. Open it to page 56 and find the 5th sentence.
3. Post the next couple of sentences on your blog, along with these instructions.
4. Do not go and find your favorite book, it has to be the one you are reading now!
5. Tag 5 other people to do the same.
So I tag my SIL Barb, Jeanne, Carol, Nessa, and Nicole.
