The courts of the Lord
Boris Buzilă, The courts of the Lord
The author evokes his childhood years, that time spent close to the church, the first topos that molded him spiritually and emotionally, „the courts of the Lord”. He also evokes the worship places and religious personalities of Bessarabia which contributed to his spiritual growth. The author discovered as a child, through religious instruction, or maybe through an ineffable sixth sense, the joy of coming to the house of the Lord and of staying there during liturgical times.
