And so it is.Right now it is 05:33 AM in the Eastern Tome Zone of North America.Sitting here, watching T20 Cricket from the Pakistani Super League is not what the Nashville crooners had in mind. Sport is sport and life is life. and in real world Pakistan, the authorities are about to execute two Pakistani Christians for evangelizing.

Meanwhile, in Ekaterinberg, Russia, the nuns at the convent are chanting at the Sunday Liturgy. I have seen and heard these nuns frequently. I recognize the faces and voices of these sisters, even the priests, deacons and subdeacons.

Never did I imagine, fifty years ago, that two parts of the world, as different as Ekaterinberg and Karachi would be readily accessible from my television set.

Now it is time to sleep again. Sleep . How mundane!
