“The more ugly, older, more cantankerous, more ill and poorer I become, the more I try to make amends by making my colors more vibrant, more balanced and beaming.”
Vincent Van Gogh
This week I finally got around to a long overdue purge of some old computer files. My reward for a job well-done was re-discovering a number of photos I’d long forgotten that were among my favorites from my travels. I thought this set of recollected captures from an ancient church in Provence was a nice fit for this week’s Vibrant challenge.
“Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged.
I loved the way the light shining through the tiny window lit up the textures on the antique walls, giving the church quite an ethereal feeling. One wonders how many times the faithful gathered here before the church fell into disrepair.
“I like things full of color and vibrant.”
Oscar de la Renta
Finally, the pulpit – a place from which we can assume countless sermons were delivered. What do you suppose their messages were, and do you think people listened and learned? One hopes the lessons focused on love, compassion and forgiveness rather than missives of fire and brimstone.
Wishing you a week of vibrancy and warmth (or in the case of our Australian friends, some cooling breezes) 😊
