Jet lag is faded. I hope. Just when I thought it was resolved there were a few nights when by 8:00 PM (4:00 AM in Ljubljana) my head looked like a bobble-head doll in a car traveling on the Mass Pike.
Things continue to look good that I will celebrate Mass and preach on every Sunday of Lent. In two weeks I go to Regina Laudis for a few days to copy the prefaces and chants I need to learn for the Triduum. Last year I was trying to learn some of the chants the morning or afternoon of. I"d rather have the leisure to do that at home so as to enter more comfortably into the magnificent liturgy that extends from Holy Thursday night to the end of Mass on Holy Saturday.
My classmate Barry who got me started in photography made an interesting observation. For someone who has said he doesn't do street photography, "you've been doing a lot of it lately." I guess I have. Part of the reason is having a very fast lens for night photography. Had some very good long walks at night in both Ljubljana and Maribor with the camera. The streets are very safe. The only place I felt as safe on the streets alone with camera equipment late at night was Taipei. It is hard to do good photography while looking over your shoulder for danger. Or a mugger.
