postcards from the internets

from Russia:

When I travel by, I often visit these churches. I walk through the wormwood towards the door – they are unlocked, no one inside. No priests, no smell of incense, no burning candles, only a couple of cheap icons, towels, a slightly radioactive Bible and images of Saints on the walls.

I make sure the Bible is left open on the page where the age of wormwood is foretold. Then I stay for a while in contemplation.

Looking at radioactive image of Jesus I ask myself, ‘How long will these churches be here? Can they live without people?’

I leave this question to be answered by someone who travels here in the future and myself going back on the road to continue my journey.
