What has it gots in its pocketses?

This morning Usas followed her sister, gave way to Surya, and promised to return tomorrow. That is a small measure of warmth after last night.

This morning, I came across a post on CartoonChurch.Com, a blog I commonly visit because Dave's insight into "things clergy" is excellent, if Anglican rather than Pagan. The post is about "Things Clergy Carry," and reading through it, many of the suggestions are remarkably apt.

Myself, I carry matches and a tealight (we're a fire religion, after all), as well as my calendar and a pen. I wish I could carry a fire extinguisher, too (just because fire is sacred doesn't mean we have to be stupid about it). I also tend to carry around a jackknife, and keep a Swiss Army knife with a corkscrew in the car. I also carry some personal religious paraphernalia that's just for me, and (of course) my goddamned cell phone.

I'm re-thinking some of the things I keep in my glovebox and trunk now, though. While the last thing I need is more "stuff" in "places," it's good food for thought.
