Tuesday, I am grateful...

...for all the gargoyles that protect us from evil. Including my gargoyle that prefers to protect my shelf of books!

Isn’t it magnificent to walk down a busy downtown street and look up to see a quiet gargoyle watching you from the corner of an old building? Too often, we walk about with our eyes straight ahead or, even worse, with our eyes to the ground. We live in an age where new and shiny is the best. We forget that old beauty is around us when we are surrounded by boxy buildings and flashing lights that scream.

Next time you are walking down a busy city street, look up and smile at a gargoyle for me.
