Lent is the month of fasting for all Georgian Orthodox Christians of Tbilisi. And Easter is the last day of Lent. It was on Easter Eve that I set out for a walk from Rustaveli Avenue. I was walking aimlessly, taking photographs and by co-incidence I found myself standing inside a church.
Inside the church, cut off from the noise of the city through its thick stone walls, it was serene. I sat there, all alone, for quite some time. I heard soft singing as a lady made preparations for Easter. I am not a staunch believer, but the experience – the quiet church, soft singing of a lady making preparations for Easter and the calmness I felt there, is all still etched in my memory.
Easter Greetings to everyone.
