The top of Ci-en Pagoda as the sun was going down on a January afternoon. That is Ignatius leaning against the rope fence, over 100 feet above the ground.
The mist at sunset. There were some adjustments made to the color and tint.
And my favorite kind of self-portraint, in an elevator mirror.

This is the final talk from the Advent Triduum in Baltimore. It will be familiar to those who read this blog two years ago. This is a slightly revised version of the meditation I put up before beginning the long retreat in Australia in March 2011.
Given that last year I could not cough, sneeze or even move without a degree of chest wall pain a mere 17 days after heart surgery I am reveling in feeling well this year. There is much for which to be grateful. It will be a quiet Christmas in community with Mass and dinner. Too far and too risky to drive to PA. I hope to spend some time photographing the final decorations in the chapel and doing some reading.
