Sorry about the lyric, but I've spent the morning watching Highlander, the tv show, on DVD. So I've now heard that Queen song about 12 times. That show is so cheesy and 80s that I love it! Last night, the history channel was chasing after all the books dating back to early Christianity that didn't make it into the bible. Pretty cool. Oh, I love weekends where I do nothing but watch television. I'm also aware that I'm hiding out a bit, as tomorrow I'm back at work for the first time in awhile.
I don't do much to celebrate Easter these days, but I did buy an Easter lily. It really brings back memories of Easter services when I was still going to church. You see, you could purchase a lily in someone's honor or memory, and it would be placed up at the front of the church throughout the Easter services. It filled the whole sanctuary with the smell of lilies. Easter was always a powerful service, and my family would always go to the sunrise service. The church would be dark and quiet and the smell was so sweet. When the time to start the service came, black robed figures would march up the aisle and form a cross at the front of the church. A soloist would sing a stanza of "Beneath the Cross of Jesus," then the pastor would read the proclamation of the angel to the Marys at the tomb...as he was reading, tympanies would begin their drum roll in the balcony, and then the organ would burst out full stops and trumpets would blare and the lights would come on and the black figures representing death would run out of the church. Then the congregation would stand singing "Lift High the Cross" as the banners and cross were carried in ahead of the procession of pastors and choir. It was the most awesome raising of power one can find outside of a pagan circle!
Anyone else have good Easter memories they'd like to share? Or, for that matter, Passover?
On a different matter, I received an e-mail from ExecutiveDirector a couple of days ago, but just opened it yesterday. A good friend of hers has started a website to find himself a GayEric. He was told, I gather, by a psychic that he would settle down with a man named Eric. So he is being proactive about it. Check out the site...and if you know any GayErics, send him the link. GayDaniel is a great guy, so only nice men, okay?!
And, last but not least, it's fabulous to see Foxy back commenting! I hope things are going well, and that you'll get a chance, at some point, to update us on your happenings!
