Gentlemen,

I have published a "novelized impression" of the Coticule weekend of September 2010 in the "heritage" section. It is available in PDF format.

Enjoy,
Bart.

The Bible and several other self help or enlightenment books cite the Seven Deadly Sins. They are: pride, greed, lust, envy, wrath, sloth, and gluttony. That pretty much covers everything that we do, that is sinful... or fun for that matter. - Dave Mustaine

Wonderful, Sir Bart! Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful ....

What a vibrant and enchanting narration about strangers coming together to look at rocks - many rocks. Reading these lines put me right back to this epic weekend and made me feel deeply at ease and sad at the same time.

Thank you very much!!!

Hats off! This is greatly written piece. Great point about Maurice, he indeed looks like Santa Claus was his distant family, I immediately had a feeling of trustworthiness when I saw him in the pictures. The spirit of this weekend is conveyed in really vivid colours. Ahh, now I feel like a moron that I wasn't there... :thumbdown:

“Hi, I’m Torolf. Have you ever heard about something called Coticule?”. Both men smile.

That (mostly, apart from a few other lines) just made my day! :w00t: :thumbup:

It surely was an unforgettable experience.

peace,
Matt

Lucky for you, I am now almost done with rubbing that in...:lol:

Thanks to all for the heartwarming reception of my somewhat long-winded writings. Much appreciated.

It indeed was an unforgettable experience! (rub...rub...rub)

Kind regards,
Bart.

Thank you Bart for this great write-up.

For a moment I thought I was there again, thanks also to your superb writing style.

Unfortunately, my computer screen reminded me at the end of the reading that this really is not the case...

Kind regards to all attendants!
