This week it is Michigan for me, and two full and wonderful days at the NPM Convention in Grand Rapids. NPM = National Pastoral Musicians. I had a great time with some good musicians and friends from St William and St Agnes Parish in Naples. The two-day one night stay in Grand Rapids allowed a reunion with a friend from St Meinrad days 50 years ago, Father Dan Daly. I had not seen him in all that time. Soon to retire he has been pastor of St Nicholas Orthodox Church for nearly 15 years. Take a look at the Dome and the Apse “written” by a Canadian.
Tonight having returned to the Detroit suburb of “White Lake” there was a sunset that matched the magnificent music I’ve heard for two days. This photo is not retouched in any way. It was a quick and passing moment of great beauty.
