Historical setting: 584 C.E. The house of Eve, pagan healer          Now every rising is grief.

Historical setting: 584 C.E. The house of Eve          I see that miss-fit white tunic so carefully stitched by my daughter-in-law’s rigid fingers of orthodoxy.

ItContinue reading “Post #20.3, Thursday, May 6, 2021”
