Hermit's Hearth

Kelpius and his cult of apocalypse-anticipating mystic monks came to be known locally as the Hermits of the Wissahickon. I like to picture them waiting for end-times on a hillside not far from my apartment, sitting around a fire, telling stories about life in the Old World. Come here to read stories about life in contemporary Philadelphia that might be nice to read by a fire but are absolutely unfit for an audience of pious monks.
