    ... is very dark and seems strangely small for what looks like a giant structure. It was built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and so used candlelight for the longest time, which means that the walls have darkened. There was also a big fire in part of the church in the 50s or 60s, and the damage from that still has not been fixed. It seems small inside because a great deal of the church - the altar, in fact - is behind an iconostasis, and only the clergy are allowed ...

    ... it's faster. We order via drive-thru because it's faster. We buy frozen pre-cooked meals because it's faster. Could we be any more impatient?? Believe me, I know I'm to blame, as well, but it's just so sad to see how much more carefree life is here! I want that so badly in America, but I know that's just our way of life.

    ... I was struck with such a lovely strand of homesickness that I grinned for the next hour.
