Just as I hoped it would be



In a little while I'm going to put on my new dress, pull my hair up so as to appear halfway respectable, and go to church. My friend and I are taking the scenic route, along Sligo Creek, to Easter mass at the Polish Catholic church in Silver Spring. The entire service is in Polish, which will be wonderful to listen to. Languages I don't speak are music to my ears; I mean that literally. And you remember that music saves my life, yes? I say yes.

After church, we're going to brunch. BRUNCH! Yes. I never go to brunch because I almost always work on Sundays unless I'm ill or out of town. I am taking the day off to celebrate Easter. Oh yeah!

As if to dance in shamanic alignment with my happy mood this morning, the weather gods have swept away the rain and clouds, leaving the air clean and bright, full of sunshine and birdsong. It's a beautiful day to dress up, go to church and then to brunch.

Happy Easter to all who observe it. Happy Sunday to everyone else. Shalom.

This will be a wonderful prelude for your visit to Poland. Enjoy the service and brunch after. I hope there are eggs at brunch. Even if you don't eat them, there is such a wonderfully, peaceful shape and texture about eggs. You get to walk to church surrounded by the airy scents of spring flowers accompanied by sweet, happy bird chatter. I wish you a blissful Sunday, dear Reya. =D

Oh wow, all in Polish! That will be amazing.

Your tulips are so bright and beautiful, like they're having their very own party.
