the light and the shadow

It's been a bit noisy around here recently,
lots of coming and going to hither and yon.

So many things to think about, plans to make,
ideas to organise, people to meet.

Let's just pause for a moment
and look at some stained glass windows.

These photos were taken in L'abbaye du Thoronet,
a place of austere beauty hidden in a wooded valley.

A memory to hold fast to on a busy Monday morning.


The title comes from an article by the architect, Le Corbusier,
who visited Thoronet while preparing plans for a new convent.


  1. Beautiful. As always.

  2. Just like the storyline on The Vicar of Dibley, the best window is the last one. Do you agree?


Thank you! I love reading your comments and even though I don't always have time to reply I am really grateful to every one who joins in the conversation.
