When I was growing up, my best friend's family always used to call my family on Easter morning and say, "Alleluia! He is risen!" To which we would reply, "He is risen indeed! Alleluia!" I kind of missed that this morning. This year we've had a very non-Easter-bunny-and-eggs kind of season, and a very thinking-hard-about-why-we're-really-celebrating-Easter season. It's been cause for several moments in church, including holding back tears and joyful heartfelt thanks. Next year I want to be as introspective but get some egg-dyeing and jellybean-eating in there too.
I'm taking a break from the computer for the next few days to spend more time on the tactile stuff: painting, knitting, reading, sleeping. In the meantime, since I still can't fix my archives, here's my workaround backup archive page.
