Sunday in Early July

Church was beautiful.

Had lunch with friends afterwards.

Excited to begin working on my small contract

this week.

Not sure when I will hear back about the 4 interviews

but am enjoying today and am reading about

Elder Macarius.

I love having more than one Optina book

'on the go' and

it is fun to read about the different

Optina Elders;

It is like entering a new world that can not

only teach me things I have been waiting for

but is full of light that I find myself

looking for,

as if lost in a long corridor;

I guess I could say that Optina is one of the doors

I have been looking for

and summer, metaphorically

as well was in reality,

for now,

is here.


The best thing is that when it is winter again,

which inwardly can happen so quickly -

the Optina Saints can still be

there, with me

when it is cold,


or in a dank dark rain.
