It was tough but he did it! We are having some days of rain in a row so it seems summer is over but I expect some sort of indian summer situation. Official autumn starts this friday.
The autumnal equinox is the proper name for the first moment of autumn and the last moment of summer. Pilgrim Farmer John from eastern Iowa always celebrates by standing out at the end of his driveway with his family and watching the sunset. On that day the sun sets directly in line with his east/west road. It is a gravel road, no pavement nearby. Isn’t that elegant in a Pilgrim Farmer John way. It ties so many loose things together.
Speaking of loose things, that was probably some loose talk on my part to talk about the possibility of a Lourdes trip here at the blog. Everyone has been asking. But it is an idea, well a little more than an idea. So, I have been chosen to be a candidate for next year’s trip that the Order of Malta puts together from the West Coast to Lourdes, a candidate. I am getting the offical brochure soon so I will fill you in on the details. But you get the picture.
This would be such an amazing opportunity for me personally and an opportunity to report on it for all our benefit. I am taking it very seriously in a Felipe sort of way. Right now I feel the need to start thinking about preparing. What does one do?
Well, that is what’s new here. Time to pray for the people in the areas affected by new hurricanes and earthquakes. The eye of Maria is going over Puerto Rico at this moment. Man what a bad time for all this.
Off to the wood shop. Building another bench in there. It is slowly getting organized. Time to get stuff done that has been waiting all summer during the nice weather.
Hugs and squeezes and all that. Love, Felipe in a rain jacket.
