... work quietly.
2 Thessalonians 3:12
A travelling day, thus a quiet day of reading, meditation, and prayer on the bus from Ithaca to New York, and from the Port Authority Bus Terminal, the E train to Jamaica, Queens, then the Long Island Rail Road to Babylon.
Before departing this morning, first a blessing of my brother Nicholas' new home, using a prayer I wrote three and a half years ago, and the collect prayer in my breviary for today's feast of Saint Martha.
With travelling mercies may you grace all pilgrims and strangers, Holy One.
