Glorious spring day. Finally. Apparently a lot of rain coming tomorrow night but I can live with that. It isn't snow. Can really live with that. My homily for Palm Sunday here at Campion and for St. Mary's in Plymouth on Good Friday is done. The homily will follow the proclamation of the Passion. It is 63 words. Anything more than 100 words commenting on the Passion Narrative is worse than gilding the lily. As I can feel a nap coming on very quickly it is time to post a few photos and grab a quick nap.
The photos are another series of chairs. There is something evocative about an empty chair. Each one has a story unique to its location.
A desk chair in a room that a Jesuit being assigned to Campion had just moved out of.
That chair has very different associations than the chairs on the porch at the villa house in Cohasset.
These chairs have a different reason for being than the lounge chairs at the Norseman Motel in Ogunquit, Maine.
And these are different from the two chairs overlooking Brace's Rock at the retreat house in Gloucester.
These last chairs are fascinating. They are in the chapel of the Jesuit residence at Fu-jen University just outside Taipei. They are lined up with precision making the photo through several rows possible. I was doing an abdominal crunch to get this photo. I also captured my bare feet. Cropped those out.
