My shadow early today (Ash Wednesday) as I walked out on a chilly (by Florida standards) morning. NO I am not wearing a Biretta, nor do I have a "man bun". I am wearing the woolen bobble hat which my niece Nicola knitted for me. As for birettas..
I'll turn in my grave if ever I see myself wearing one of these esoteric bits of ecclesiastical haberdashery.
