Dear Miguel del Barco,

I am writing you supposing that up there in heaven where you are, you have Internet and receive e-mails.
You may remember me: recently I was in San Javier where you have build that beautiful church.
I admire you deeply for accomplishing that project and this is how you became an inspiration and a motivating force.

Now I am at a location next to the Pacific Ocean and hurricane Norbert is coming this way.
It is a serious one, getting stronger and stronger and it will force me to leave this place.
Now, why would you up there in heaven be concerned about some hurricane on Earth?
The truth is that I got this idea to combine your impressive will power with mine and force the hurricane to change course.
To disappear to the west into the ocean so nobody has trouble on the land.
Hence, you are deeply involved.
Maybe I should have asked you beforehand, but it is too late now.

The problem at this moment in time is that I announced publicly we are both involved in this bending of the course of the hurricane.
It is on the Internet and now hundreds of people are eagerly waiting if we manage.
Sorry for going public and rising expectations about us: call it youthful recklessness.

Today the report from the National Hurricane Centre is that the hurricane is coming straight ahead to my location.
Miguel del Barco, until now, our combined will-forces have unfortunately not been very effective, right?

You do realize, Padre del Barco, that our reputations are at stake here?
Of course, if the hurricane comes this way anyway I can present the audience, who are closely watching, some twisted excuse.
That you and I decided that nature must have its way, or something like that.
We can get away with it.
But to continue to be truly respected it is better we do something about this damned hurricane.

Could you be so kind to re-consider?
In any case, wouldn’t it be fun to break the monotony in heaven and get involved in this spectacular project?

I understand you cannot reply with an e-mail as we must suppose there are no computers, electricity and providers in heaven.
But as you know, each morning for hours there is this osprey sitting on the specially erected tree in front of the Fuso Szulc.
You can use him to send a message.
The bird shrieks frequently so let’s say that if he shrieks tomorrow morning at 9.35 h. it is you.
Two shrieks means we’ll manage to push the hurricane away.
Your word!
Three shrieks means it is even beyond your powers.
But that will be very disappointing…

Thank you very much for your fantastic involvement and if this works, we can maybe do some more projects together?

Greetings from earth,

Miguel (!)

Michel,
The red type on the grey background is just about totally unreadable. I can't enjoy your posts unless I can read them.
Thanks,
Fred
