  1. Your work, meanderings through the mundane and divine are truly mesmerizing! And the churches! Did I mention the churches?

  2. Hello Anne, Like you we ‘collect’ churches and graveyards! If you are in London, you must visit St Peter’s Church also known as ‘The Italian Church’ at 136 Clerkenwell Rd, London EC1R 5DL. It is simply simple and beautiful. When we were in New York City we really enjoyed a visit to Greenwood Cemetery. The guide took us to the grave of Leonard Bernstein and we all sang a selection from ‘West Side Story’. It was quite touching! Also like you, I love Notre Dame and feel at home there.
