From Philip Pullman’s “The Golden Compass”:

The intercessor was a plump, elderly man known as Father Heyst. It was his job to lead all the College services, to preach and pray and hear confessions. When Lyra was younger, he had taken an interest in her spiritual welfare, only to be confounded by her sly indifference and insincere repentances. She was not spiritually promising, he had decided.

    I wonder how many comments you’ve gotten from the cabin of a plane before?

    Also, I started reading my old posts yesterday. You should try that. We’re some smart mofos.

    I wonder if anyone has decided that I’m not spiritually promising.
