An unworthy Deacon, named for the brother of God: James, striving to "work out his salvation with fear and trembling" within the Tradition (paradosis) of the Eastern Orthodox Faith. It is a strange and marvelous journey, and I am accompanied by the fourfold fruit of my fecundity. My wife, the Matushka or Diaconissa Sophia, is my beloved partner in the pursuit of Theosis, and she ranks me in every way.

Well that should make for an interesting ride home tomorrow. At this point though they are predicting 50mph gusts, which really isn't all that bad compared to what we got last December which was as high as 80mph inland. This is relatively common fare for the Pacific Northwest, but where we live now - surrounded by tall trees - off grid living needs to be anticipated.
Home tonight means: a final tally of flashlights, batteries, candles, wood, and water. Bring it on!
