I've had ample time to wander around our lovely monastery and take pictures of our lovely grounds and lovely sisters. Many sisters have graciously allowed me to take their picture after a little hemming and hawing...after all, who really likes to get their picture taken? If I'm not careful they will soon be turning and walking the other way when they see me approaching.
I thought I would share some of the sights to be found around our monastery. Tucson is in the Sonoran Desert which is one of the prettier deserts of our world. It is not endless sand dunes like the Sahara. The famous Saguaro Cactus makes its home here. Cactus do abound on our property but I want to share some 'color' I found in our courtyard.
Below is a great spot for meditation and lectio divina.
typical desert vegetation and a bubbling fountain.
