You look like a Slavic version of Mike Patton.  :)

A nice pic. Can I ask why are wearing star of David? Just a jewelry? Around here I haven't seen anyone wearing it outside of a few Zionist Pentecostalists.

A friend of mine from Indonesia was having golden star of David and she wanted to send it to me, and I to send her mine golden cross but the post services she check did not send gold. So I like it as symbol of Jews and bought one for me. Nothing more.

You traded a cross for that? Not a good deal, imo.

I still have golden cross, she wanted to send it to me without send her nothing. I just say to her that I will send my cross to her, she don't wanted it she just wanted to send her star of David to me, so it is not trade.
This metal star of David is cheap.

Me worshiping Baal Hammod in Sicily. Seeing ruins of temples of Astarte and Baal felt fairly biblical.

The picture isn't available anymore.  Was this in Lilybeum, or whatever they call it now?  The Western, Carthaginian half?

Apparently it was. Didn't know the original name when I was there. It's called Marsala now. Apparently meaning "A harbour of Allah" as named by the Muslim conquerors in the 9th century. That was what we were told at least.

Probably the last picture of myself I'm posting for a long time, but yesterday I hugged Yusra Mardini and I'm still euphoric over it.

You are very poised, Dominika! And the godly headcovering looks nice on you.
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Thank you!  I actually shaved it off back in June for my former band's last gig; the rest of the members hated it from the getgo and since I was the one quitting and putting the project to an end, it was a gesture of conciliation on my part.  After seeing some pictures of that night, though, I made two decisions: grow the mustache back and lose some weight!  It got to the point of curling with wax last week, finally, so it's on the way back and even my wife, who used to hate my facial hair experiments, has conceeded that, at 41 years of age, it suits me.

It's Ukrainian Independence day....and while I wore an embroidered shirt to work, I couldn't very well wear the flowers....so, Snapchat fixed that for me.

Do Romanians and Serbs have similar patterns to the world famous Ukrainian shirts?

At HH John X' visit to my parish. I'm visible, but not much well.

I'm halting between deciding you're the one on the far left, in front, or the far right. If the far left, that's a dashing weskit.

He's far left...in the back. The young fella.
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

I concur.  He is the serious and very handsome guy on the far left.

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

All opinions expressed by myself are quite tragically my own, and not those of any other poster or wall hangings.

Indians stand in church with crossed arms just like that.  I think Old Believers do as well. 
Please don't project meta-debates onto me.

I've been scolded for that a couple of times.

A brother from another parish visiting ours once looked puzzled at my crossed arms and asked me to uncross them. No one in my own church has ever complained, but I avoid crossing them ever since just in case.
