icon of St Basil the Great and the Circumcision of the LordI wish I could wish you a happy St. Basil’s day, but I am quite tired and depressed right now. In fact, I am tired of being depressed, and I have nothing to say except to beg for the intercessions of Ss. Basil and Emily. Perhaps I should be asking the prayers of St. Basil the Elder, as well.

On a lighter note, that is one groovy icon, no? Something about the confluence of the two commemorations recorded in a single icon really grabs me whenever I see it. If there were some place to buy a reproduction of it, I would get it for St. Athanasius in a minute.

By the way, I’m listening to Scarlet’s Walk by Tori Amos. It is really rather good; it reminds me why I loved Tori’s music to begin with back with Little Earthquakes and Under the Pink, and yet there is a maturity in it, too.

    It is technically already past your name day here in the UK, but nonetheless I will take the opportunity to wish you many years.

  3. Josh Says:

    Yep, that is one groovy icon.
    At the retreat, we celebrated St. Basil’s liturgy on St. Basil’s day – a nice way to begin the year – and I thought of you. Hope your new year is a blessed one.
