By Brian Robinson.
“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
“I’ve always been fascinated by holes; but I struggled to understand why?”
“He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”
“When I was a child I would watch men working down them, repairing pipes, making connections.”
“He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.”
“During the war I spent much of my time holed up in one place or another. That’s when I finally realised the attraction. Holes can be safe places.”
“Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.”
“The rest of my life was much the same. I was never really comfortable above ground after that.”
“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
“This must be the neatest, cosiest hole I’ve ever been down.”
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
“I think I’ll rest here for a while.”
