Your High School Annual photo, Thomas, really struck a chord with me: I could just see you running around the football field, pockets full of 4 x 5 film! And I thought my Hasselblad was to heavy. (My once — and still! — prized 4 x 5 Sinar is gathering dust, a beautiful camera, overtaken by technology.)
As I can imagine you in those far-away cathedrals filled with tourists and other faithful, yet being in a far-away spiritual place amidst it all. It's a place where I often find myself In Search of the Nativity.
Thank you again for sharing your Cathedral Quest with us all. And you do give me too much credit: all I did was write down your words.
By the way? The Father stepping out of the picture? Beautiful.
