Creation of icons based on the Book of Revelation

Assisi

Assisi

Here is Assisi. taken when I was walking down the mountain to Santa Maria of the Angels to spend many hours in raptures over the Porziuncola.

I do  not have many pictures from inside the churches as photography is discouraged.  They keep their holy places as holy as possible.  There is much reverence here and I honoured it an loved it.

There is so much I could say about this two week pilgrimage but I am not going to because it feels too special and I want to keep it close in my heart and consider it.  It was for me alone to receive, thank you God. But here are some pictures:

Lots of drumming in Piazza Commune where I spent many evenings- just outside the apartment.

  3. Thank you so much for sharing those photos. I completely understand about it being an experience just for you, also. That lion photo is really expressive, it’s my favorite one.

    • Yes he is fab. I sketched him in soft pencil in my book and the next time I opened it there was a reflection on the facing page. His face is almost human.
