How Unobservant Can I Be?
I don't know how many times, since I moved to Wilber, that I have walked up Wilson Street to St Wenceslaus. Going to Mass, going to the Church for a visit, walking to the Dollar General store through the Church parking lot, but it must have been dozens of times.

Yesterday, I got to Mass a few minutes early and I was standing outside, enjoying the warmer weather. As I stood looking at the Church, I suddenly realised that the small bit of ground in front was symmetrically landscaped! The entryway stands a bit out from the south end of the Church, and in each corner is a burning brush shrub, just like we have in our back yard. Then, there are identical flowers on both sides, and at each corner of the building, a rosebush, still blooming even tho' tomorrow is All Saints' Eve.

I mentioned this to my Dear Vegetarian Wife, but she reminded me that I have never been the most observant person!

I'm always finding new things in familiar places. Sometimes its surprising what you don't notice.
