Proverb of the Month – July 2009
by Nic Olson
I watched UFC 100 last night. I don’t love this organized sport, but everyone I know was there watching it, so I joined. There is nothing that brings friends closer together quite like two men from different backgrounds punching, kneeing, elbowing and submitting each other into pools of blood. There is also nothing that shows human kind’s gentle nature quite like this either.
Afterwards a few friends and I went to a midnight movie. X-Men. I haven’t seen all of the previous X-Men movies, but I figured that since it was a prequel, I’d be alright. I was.
I notice small details from movies. The hair colour of the extras. The make and model of the main character’s vehicle. Yesterday I noticed this sticker, that was on the window of the old farming couple that took care of Wolverine for a few days.
“All who wander are not lost.”
I liked it.
