Frederica: Here I am in the Shakespeare Garden, of the—what’s
it called? The Portland
Kh. Krista: The Portland
International Rose Garden.
Frederica: The Portland International Rose Garden, in
Portland, Oregon. Which is
gorgeous. It’s on the side of a
mountain, part of the Cascade Range, Krista was telling me, and you can stand
at the top and look down the terraces, and it’s just roses and roses and roses. We’re in a little tucked-away corner that’s
the Shakespearean garden; not too many roses here, but all the flowers are named
after characters in Shakespeare. So this
is a nice quiet place to be. I’m here
with Krista West, Khouria Krista West, the wife of Father Alban West, who is
the pastor of St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church in Portland, and her daughter Nora, and her
daughter Zuzu, both of whom are sketching at this moment. Krista’s probably known to many listeners as
a liturgical seamstress and as an expert in liturgical vestment history. You gave a speech about this recently at Holy
Cross Seminary in Boston, didn’t you?
