For Hallowe'en, Finnegann decided to be a ladybug. (His mother was a bee; his father a moth.) Rosalind gave Finn a small ladybug in the same colours as his costume.

A friend along the way. Actually a statue of "Roy" beside the trail in Saanich.

Healing Prayer


I'm part of the Healing Prayer team at Christ Church Cathedral. After taking Communion people can come to an alcove or chapel in the church and pray with two members of the team, and receive an anointing. These pictures are set up by members of the team to show what we do - we would never picture people who actually come up. Who has come up and what prayers they have requested is strictly confidential.

FinnAtTheTop

Finnegann all by himself decided to climb to the top of this jungle gym. He's a climber. His dad was, and I think I was, too, although now I'm not happy at height. One of my earliest memories, which I think dates to Finn's age (2 1/2), is of an apparatus like this with a metal flag on top.

In Nova Scotia anything out of the province is "away."

Just spent several days in Nova Scotia. Had dinner with cousin Maureen Docuet and her husband Lee. Treated to lobster, and what a treat!

A stairwell.

An architectural detail at Rivendell. It is a really nice building. I'd recommend the place to anyone who wants to rest, read, and meditate for a few days.

Before we left we checked out Killarney Lake. I'd like to return in the summer, when it's not raining!

There's a large labyrinth for meditation, but the path is a bit tricky to follow since it's made up of irregular stones. Or maybe I just got impatient as I tried it.

We both got some reading and writing done, and had talks along with our walks.

And she was interested in this slime mould. She has to buy this stuff for her biology class to examine.
