Silver is not a good adjective when talking about trout.

THE CONFESSOR

If you try to see the meaning hidden underneath the measure of the depth can be deceiving

The bottom has a rocky reputation

You can feel it in the distance the deeper down you stare
From up above it's hard to see, but you know when you're there
On the bottom words are shallow - on the surface talk is cheap
You can only judge the distance by the company you keep

In the eyes of the Confessor

In the eyes of the Confessor there's no place you can hide
You can't hide from the eyes
Don't you even try

In the eyes of the Confessor you can't tell a lie
You cannot tell a lie
Strip you down to size
Naked as the day that you were born
Naked as the day that you were born

Take all the trauma, drama, karma, guilt, and doubt, and shame
"What if's" and "if only's"; the shackles and the chains
Violence and agression; the pettiness and scorn
The jealousy and hatred; the tempest and discord
And give it up!

Lordy!  Thank you for another day.

What is the “John gesture”? Picknett & Prince identified that da Vinci in his paintings often depicted certain people as raising their right index finger skywards.

Look up, look down, look all around.

This symbolic gesture was pointed out by Rodger, the Brokedownclimber and raconteur.

Yer gonna die...

from the suspense!

At first it seemed like just another emergency case—hideous but routine—in the life of the smalll-town hospital. But the ancient Chouinard #7 Stopper in this victim’s butt was only the beginning...

The hospital staff fought to save the young climber’s anal integrity and not damage him with the nut tool, and old Doc Bircheff was their only hope for this chock was chock-full of radiation! But where had he gone?

Somewhere in the hospital another man was ready to kill, bolt, chip or French free if he had to. He was desperate, shall we say, to keep the injured climber from talking.

And the NPS, the Fish and Game, the FBI, not to mention the Inyo County Mounties, are helpless to stop what they can’t understand...

Will the peripatetic Doc be located in time and has he REALLY got the skills needed? Or has his whole life been a sham?

You won’t rest until he does.

And he never rests...
