It’s Our Second Anniversary… Thanks to All of You!

Woody the Woodpecker

GUESS WHAT? I don’t deserve such good readers… you don’t know how much I owe to you. THANK YOU! SPASIBO!

On Saturday, 7 November, my blog celebrated the second anniversary of its launching. As it was the weekend, I was busy… I actually forgot that it had occurred. We’re now in the third year of presentation, and I’ve looked over some of the changes… for living things change… if they don’t, they die. For one, well-meaning and knowledgeable friends told me that to improve my writing abilities I should write every day… that is, I should put up an original post every weekday. This has sharpened my writing abilities considerably, for practise DOES make perfect. It has also decreased the number of posts, for an essay takes longer to compose than a translation.

Of course, another reason that the nature of the site has mutated is that there is, at present, “a clear and present danger”. All Russian Orthodox Christians should muster to the sound of the tocsin and do what they can to topple JP and Co (JP is a new Kirill Terlecky or False Dmitri (actually, he combines features from both, I think), and we must treat him accordingly). A new and better arrangement shall come of it… but, we have a painful and dicey period to endure first. The Lord is “trampling out the vintage which the grapes of wrath have stored” and that means that he is stomping on them with FULL VIGOUR. OUCH! That is the way of it, I am afraid. We refused the life-giving, but, astringent, path. Therefore, the Lord shall give us PRECISELY what we wanted… EXACTLY what we asked for… why is it that no-one likes THAT?

THANK YOU, TO ALL OF YOU! WITHOUT YOU, I AM NOTHING.

Let’s see what our third year together brings us! Bog blagoslovit! May God bless!
