Across from Marble Cemetery – A Church


I tapped my episcopalian roots this evening as I walked the streets of the East Village.

I’m actually not sure if the church across from Marble Cemetery on Second Street in New York City‘s East Village IS episcopalian but.. what the heck. I’ll play along.

The evening was cold and damp and reminds me of the days of my childhood when my family and I used to go to the local church and sit in the pews on Maundy Thursday …. just before Easter.

But, tonight was only Wednesday.

I think part of the memory is due to the imminent arrival of Mom and Dad. They’ll be staying uptown but will come to the East Village for an Easter dinner (that they’re gonna make for me – uh huh, uh huh). At this point, I’m not sure what we’ll have but it won’t be a bunny. I don’t think I’ve ever had a rabbit.

But, if I did, I’d like to offer a special shout out to the Easter Bunny tonight.

    It’s the Russian Orthodox Cathedral of the Dormition – i don’t get the point here at all.
