Sun in Winter

Glistening at the top of the spire

This picture is taken from the top of the little hill just where Old Montreal starts. It is almost a week old. That’s unusual for me. Usually if I like an image I use it the same day. I’ve been busy with many sad and difficult moments this week and so I never used it. I don’t know the name of that church but the shining top of the spire caught my eye. it was mid afternoon and now with the agonizingly slow lengthening of days I am starting to notice things like this. Today it was bitterly cold and yet the sun was strong enough to melt snow on steps and sidewalks. I took one walking pole to get to the gym.

Still very cold

I’m still glad of my faithful coat that keeps out wind and cold. Things are glittery around us and I suppose we have to find the glittery parts inside too. It is not original to say living is a mystery but it is as true as breath. It is late and this is a mixed up post. I will do better tomorrow.

    • Thanks Ellie. All well thank God. I will start the Portuguese Camino soon and so much looking forward to that. How great to be close enough to “ drop over for a bit of Camino” as you are in Ireland and for a good cause too. Just confirmed that I will go out to British Colombia later this year so that’s me fixed. I have heard the Gran Canaria walk is wonderful!
