Noodle market time again

Friday, November 26th, 2010

Balmy Friday afternoon, at Civic Park, North Sydney listening to a teenage rock and roll band, my girls indulging in Brakwurst rolls, hey the bands pretty good – a nice way to end the week. Life has a way of reminding you how wonderful it is.

Sunrise from our kitchen window

For no particular reason, except that it’s beautiful- my photos are crap but you get the idea. Funny for the first time today I noticed how wonderful the sunrise is from all places our kitchen window.

Church of St George Ethiopia

Church of St George Ethiopia

Rocio and I went to a really enjoyable party last night – basically everyone who attends the 9 am family mass at St Mary’s North Sydney was invited to a brave fellow parishioner’s house for a get together. Given that several hundred people attend that mass, I had visions Facebook-esque scenes of hundreds of unruly Catholics stampeding this kind lady’s house. As it turned out an optimum number of people turned up – not too many to make it too crowded, but more than enough (including Father Tony) for there to be a party buzz. As I was talking to one lady, she mentioned that she’d visited a Church in Ethiopia that was in the shape of a cross, cut out of stone. Instantly, I knew what she was talking about, and didn’t know how, until I realised that the night before, on page 274 of Man and his symbols (edited by CJ Jung) I’d seen exactly that Church. Just an interesting coincidence, that’s all.
