  1. Lord of what? Death?

    This is a really bizarre post, Terry.

    Peace,

  2. Today is the anniversary of Hiroshima and is also the feast of the Transfiguration - sorry you didn't get that.

  3. I get the two dates. But why the comparison? Why not two separate posts?

    Peace,

  4. I clicked back to see if anyone commented, because I was perplexed (although the video was indescribably ... just indescribable). Bit of an unexpected juxtaposition. So thanks for the info. about the anniversary.

    Should have asked, of course, when I was here the first time.

    I seem to remember Pavel Chichikov writing a haunting poem that juxtaposes the Transfiguration and Hiroshima--but it's not on his main page any longer.

    Anyway, this is a comparison other artistic Christians have already made. I'm not surprised Terry noticed it.
