Icons and iPods.
My, my! Thanks to some very generous and thoughtful relatives, I have joined the ranks of the iPodians — although I haven't yet figured out how to use the cute little thing — but the musical theme of this Christmas also included a particularly wonderful item from Mrs Philocrites. (Her Christmas was about as Anglican as they come, complete with a festive St Nicholas figure, The Study of Anglicanism, two icons, and Robert Alter's translation of the Pentateuch. And, yes — thanks for asking! — her Christmas Eve pageant was lovely. I'm sure the ceramic Virgin Mary crèche figure can be glued back together.) She gave me my very own icon of Johann Sebastian Bach, the fifth evangelist. If I can figure out how to get my iPod set up, I may load the "Christmas Oratorio" to bless it.
