One of my gracious neighbors down the road of Holy Souls Mountain heard on the news this morning that it’s National Hermits Day.
I was called down the mountain to get a gift — against all my protestations — that tastes good while not necessarily being too good for you, which is fine with me.
All just in time before being possibly snowed or iced in — as promised by NOAA — something which is — you have to understand — welcomed by hermits.
Mark your calendars for next year. National Hermits Day falls on 29 October.
Let’s celebrate by saying a prayer for the Holy Souls (who really, really, really appreciate this) … Hail Mary…
Also, thanks go to C.W. for some Bold Hermit blend from the Mystic Monk crowd. Thank you!
Update 8:45 PM: O.K. So… The first snow flakes of the season are falling outside. Tiny flakes. Probably it won’t amount to even a dusting. But it’s a reminder to pray for those who are getting pounded North and East of here.
