A Rose Garden Retreat on Good Friday

I love sitting in the city memorial rose garden for a few hours on Good Friday. Even with the people, pets, traffic, and 1500 rose bushes all around me during my annual “retreat,” I had no trouble writing, thinking, and praying — the Mission’s cross, draped in red, kept me focused.

    • I had a few people test it and they’re seeing it. Not sure why you can’t — sorry! I posted the photos on Facebook, so if you can’t see it here, you can find it on my profile page. 🙂
