HOME FROM FRANCE
We are home from our trip to Paris and parts of Brittany. This photo is one of the gargoyles at Notre Dame in Paris. Tom and our friend Meredith climbed the tower to take photographs and get up close with the gargoyles while I went to mass inside the Cathedral. I was amazed at the purposeful, peaceful way the priest presided at the mass with hordes of tourists circulating around the outer aisles and edges of the church. The service was in French of course so I only understood a few words here and there. Still, it felt very right to actually worship in this place rather than only sightsee.
I will write more about this trip later but wanted to at least get one photo posted now before heading to bed to catch up on sleep and do a little jetlag recovery.
