a place I want to visit...


I have this thing where I love going in old churches.
(The Catholic ones are always the best.)
I love sitting quietly in the chapel areas...
I love the building's smell..
the way it feels to be in there...
the quiet...
the echo....
the windows...
it all feels so sacred...
so reverent...

a few of my friends and I always seem
to end up exploring these old type churches 
when we are visiting
other places


I have many very special memories
from some of these adventures.
(I view them as a sort of spiritual pilgrimage.)


so when I saw these pictures, 
I immediately wanted to seek out 
all of the hidden jewels of church buildings 
in Huntsville.

if you know of any, let me know-
maybe you will want to explore with me

The one with yellow leaves looks a lot like the courtyard from Dead Poet's Society when they go outside and march around. I love that movie and I love these pictures. I figure now that I've come out, I might as well leave some comments on posts that caught my eye! I'm backtracking! And I'm not a stalker, I hope I don't seem like a blog stalker...I just like reading other's blogs. Especially anybody's who's friends with Amelia. I love her.
