Yesterday was a whirlwind of preparation to get everything ready for Miguel's departure. He will be spending about a week in Portland before heading to Kentucky via Greyhound. He wants a cross-country adventure, so chose to take the bus rather than flying.
I went to bed last night at 7:45 and slept like a dead animal until 6 this morning.
We took a couple of pictures last night before heading to the airport. Here is one of the four of us before Miguel said goodbye to Phoebe. She was trying to bi-locate because she had an art opening but also wanted to spend a few minutes together before Miguel left.
How fitting that the Church was in the background.
The Church is always in the background of our lives!
And here is one at Juneau International Airport.
And off he goes!

Here's a picture of Charles, proudly pointing to "Grandma in the Kitchen", one of Phoebe's pieces at the gallery. We are so proud of her!
Today is the Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord.
I love this icon, with Peter, James and John so overwhelmed by the transfigured vision of Christ that they fall down the mountain. May we also be transfigured!
“At his Transfiguration Christ showed his disciples the splendor of his beauty, to which he will shape and color those who are his: ‘He will reform our lowness configured to the body of his glory’” (Philippians 3:21) (St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologiae).
