The end of the world... as we know it.

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.

I'm not sure that the 'end of days' is a literal thing.  I think it's more likely a change in awareness.  These topics get us thinking about the meaning of life in general, and the meaning of our own life.

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!


  1. Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi. You're my only hope

  2. Exactly!! Too bad we don't all look that great in cinnamon bun hair!

    I have patterns for most of the SW main characters and will me making them soon...

  3. Hehe!!! That's really neat! I love Obi too. But these days Natasha and I are competing over Anakin from part 2. LOL! Anyway, AAM/Obi look really cool! Love that light saber! How did you make that?

  4. Oh I see it purple on my desktop!!

  5. I cheated on the light saber... it's from Steve's Star Wars lego set. :oP
