On Saturday I just cleaned up the leaves in the back yard and had a nice relaxing day.
Today I visited a monastery (Monastery of the Holy Spirt in Conyers, GA) and was just planning on taking pictures around the grounds but got to go in the beautiful cathedral and hear The University of Georgia chorus, concert choir and symphony orchestra. Music consisted of the following: Five Negro Spirituals from A child of our time by Michael Tippet. These are beautiful songs: Steal away to Jesus, Nobody knows the trouble I see, Go down, Moses, By and By and Deep River. Also Dixit Dominus by George Frideric Handel and Mass in B-flat Major, Harmoniemesse by Joseph Haydn. It was beautiful. Could not have planned it better. The acoustics were terrific.
I did take pictures of the stained glass and the outside gardens. They had a ginkgo tree. The most beautiful yellow tree. The leaves would fall around you so gently, it was like snowflakes. I really enjoyed my weekned.
This is the large piece of glass as you look forward. It is just beautiful.
Some very colorful pieces of glass. There were many.
Facing behind you. The balcony. Beautiful architecture.
Yellow snowflakes. Ginkgo Tree.

A close up. So sweet--just like a mother and her baby.
