The Two Three

LIGHT REFLECTIONS
            Sunday we celebrated Masses in our new church. The eastern sun came through the massive windows and touched the water of the Baptismal Font, reflecting onto the ceiling. Since the font water was constantly moving because of the flow from the upper basin, the reflected light danced wherever it landed.          ...
Once Again, Not Me!
 Once again this year it looks like I will not win a Nobel Prize. Each year I enjoy this week when day after day a Nobel Prize is awarded.

Afraid of falling asleep driving back that evening, I had a couple of cups of coffee before ...
Start of the Day
   I started last Friday with a quick fly-over through the neighborhood. Only I wasn’t the one doing the fly over.            As I left my house to drive the short distance to the church, I spotted a bald eagle flying over the neighboring field.
