notes from a small vicar

    Tried, found wanting
    'Every trial endured and weathered in
    the right spirit makes a soul nobler and
    stronger than it was before'

    W.B. Yeats quoted in When Skies are Grey, the Evertonian Fanzine #142.

    Well, here's to the young generation, hoping they'll suss what a 'right spirit' should mean, because all their elders in the stands could muster today was a show of nastiness and aggression towards each other which was shameful, really. Every year, hating this, I say, that's my last derby match. The following year, stupidly, I try again.
