“A gun behind the door, logs in the fireplace, and children in the cradle…”

Gun behind the door

Truth.

Alas, I am not there yet. But I long to be! And God willing, I will be, one day.

This reminds me strongly of a favorite song by Jethro Tull – “Fires at Midnight”:

“I believe in fires at midnight
When the dogs have all been fed.
A golden toddy on the mantle
A broken gun beneath the bed…”

Author: The Anglophilic Anglican

I am an ordained Anglican clergyman, published writer, former op-ed columnist, and experienced outdoor and informal educator. I am also a traditionalist: religiously, philosophically, politically, and socially. I seek to do my bit to promote and restore the Good, the True, and the Beautiful, in a world which has too-often lost touch with all three, and to help re-weave the connections between God, Nature, and humankind which out techno-industrial civilization has strained and broken.
