Daily Life

A sleeping rosebed. I'll try to take this picture again when the roses are blooming. Hopefully a bike, perhaps the same bike, will be parked there to complete the picture.



We have several doors in our building with knobs and locks that need repair. Like many "minor" things, this task went to the back burner. Well, that is until one of our students got locked inside a practice room and could not get out. That's Ken looking like a jailbird but actually he's practicing his guitar.

After much effort public safety and the campus locksmith and a little help from Ken on the other
side and he was out. The lock did not survive.


















As I sat waiting for Mass to start I noticed the lady across the aisle sitting in perfect comfort as she fingered her Rosary bead. I love the feeling this image gave me as I watched the elderly Vietnamese lady sitting quietly, in perfect relaxation in the Lord's presence.

I remember my brother-in-law's girlfriend got trapped in our parents-in-law's toilet, because the old bakelite lock hadn't ever worked properly - but she didn't know, locked it and was stuck in there for a good few hours before they could get her out!

Glad you're managing to get your locks sorted out!

The bike and the rosary. The story of a peaceful day weaves into place.
