Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.

I am haunted by waters.

 — (Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It)

This is Daniel Norris. He’s from Tennessee and is currently a pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays. He shaves with an axe, lives in a van, loves Jesus, and drinks a lot of coffee. I’m swooning.
