Someone is playing opera loud
and it is lovely.
The weather is cool right now,
but I hear rumours of another heat wave.
Liturgy was lovely this morning.
My priest has white vestments with hand embroidered
grapes on them.
It is one of my favourite of his vestments,
the whole day was beautiful,
starting with vespers last night.
Seeing the sunlight in the altar, with incense;
hearing the Troparion for the feast;
the blessing of wine, wheat and oil;
being anointed with gladness;
eating the bread with wine;
the blessing of fruit...
