The Gate to the West

 Golden Gate 

Spice! Scarlet Red! You are cold yet hot! 

Rivets and bolts intertwine your spine.

You are our daily destiny to near and far away places. 

Your arms span between two bodies of land and embrace red, orange and yellow shadows of golden sunsets.

Your salty scented breezes briskly pass through our hair and skin. 

Your grandeur and beauty continues to amaze us.  Other worlds come to visit you. 

You stand so proud! 

You are the backbone of this colorful city. 

You are its gateway and its strength!

Christ the King

As 2014 comes to a close and we welcome a new year in the near horizon, I want to share with you a place that is dear and near to my heart.

As a child I was fortunate to travel quite a bit with my parents and my brother and so it seems the traveling became my passion as did the many places we visited and began to mark my love for architecture.  However, there is one place, my childhood school and the majestic cathedral we spent going to mass to every Sunday afternoon.  It was the folk mass I loved the most.  The choir and the organ pipes resonated and moved my soul, that it is no wonder this became part of my life journey.  Walking up the nave to the altar is such a sacred walk for me that when I recently visited my childhood home town, it brought back such great memories, not to mention that I visited with my dear childhood friend, which made it all the more memorable.

I can’t think of a more fitting way to close the year during such an important time as Christmas.  Celebrating the birth of Christ.  My personal sacred journey!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!
