Last night, as the day's retreat activities wound their way to a close, I found myself with some quiet time in the church fellowship hall. I took up the Tumbling Tower blocks and began to absent-mindedly build something. Soon, though, I found myself putting this baby together. Sort of patterned after Stonehenge, I guess.
My mind just runs along these obscure tracks. The boys at the retreat were discussing horror movies of the gore-fest variety, and Matthew turned to me to ask, "Who are your favorite mass murderers?" To which I replied, "Genghis Khan and Tamerlane," without missing a beat.
