Rita may have left the building, but her handiwork abounds-- a one-woman art show, testimony to the power of nature. We can't forget her, there are reminders everywhere. And I know it weighs heavily on all of us in the area. I can't do much about the various devastations that dot the landscape of the world outside my home. But being surrounded by so much disorder outside our home makes it all the more important that I find a way to create a sanctuary within our home.
I have always loved the shape of this little church, though I also judge it to be highly impractical. I'd like to peek inside and see how the peak of the ceiling looks. It must be different now, worshipping without the light shining through the glass that was once there. I think it mught have been a large stained glass piece, which would have made for such interesting reflections in the sanctuary (the kind of thing that would distract me from the sermon!) .
That is why I have to take some time away from the computer. I get too distracted by all the reflections.
So, I'll be back. Mardi Gras is winding down around here.
If I make it to the parades I will post photos (if I can get them uploaded. I have had some trouble with the card, or the cord, or something). This year, for the first time, there will be a "Red Hat" parade, which should provide many unique observations (and I can talk freely about them, since I am now old enough to be a red hatter!)
