Although I only had two days in Bratislava at the end of my European wilderness trip I had a great time spending the early part of the night moving around the section of the city along the Danube and near the Nový most (new bridge) taking pictures of the city at night. To follow up on these […]

It seems odd from here at Lady of Lourdes I attended Mass for the first time in 25 years. I must have gotten caught up in all the excitement of a service at Lady of  Lourdes. Or, maybe it was that I drank the delicious water from the grotto. Or maybe it was that fat […]
