Twixtapositions

I despise the recently constant chatter about Twitter, and here I am adding to it twice in twenty-four hours. Do I contradict myself? Very well then, I contradict myself. (I am large, I contain multitudes.)

On Twitter I follow, basically, some friends, some Mac sites, and . . . this: an hourly feed of prayers attributed to St. John Chrysostom. The juxtapositions create some interesting food for meditation. For instance, yesterday, during the keynote presentation at Apple’s WWDC, I got this from The Unofficial Apple Weblog:

iPhone 3GS: Faster, with video, environmentally friendly. Available July 19, $299 for 32GB, $199 for 16GB

And immediately following, from chrysostomhours:

O Lord, save me from temptation.

  1. Twixtapositions. Perfect. A wordsmith you are, my friend. Who says Chrysostom can't speak directly to your soul?
