A religious group says today 5/21/11 is the end of the world and we should prepare. I figure there's little I can personally do about it either way.
These things come up every so often. I remember in 1981 the world was supposed to end while I was walking home from school. While I looked around for strange signs in the sky... nothing happened.
I suspect that's what will happen today as well, and on 12/21/12.
In that light, and by special request from my friend Swati... I decided to crochet and have a chat with my favorite Advisor Warrior, Archangel Michael. I asked him which pattern in should use to create his likeness in yarn and he immediately responded with "Obi Wan Kenobi of course!"
So, here he is, an Advisor Warrior modelled after an Advisor Warrior. Swati, you'll be happy to know that in spite of the blueish tint to my photos, Michael's hair and his robes are actually bright purple!
I somehow feel comforted by having Michael around... I imagine that's because we have a long standing arrangement. I know that when I miss the mark or stray off course, he usually kicks my butt back into gear. Since this was a fun project and so far, has not resulted in any butt kicking, I figure I must be doing ok.
Just in case though, I gave him Obi Wan's light saber!
