an impulse buy today, really –
Margaret Visser’s The Geometry of Love,
subtitled Space, Time, Mystery, and Meaning in an Ordinary Church
i doubt it will arrive in time for my birthday next week, with it being mailed all the way from the USA from a used bookseller. i decided on this instead of the books on walking because the church building has been a big part of my life this past year. i have spent so much time sitting, kneeling in churches, contemplating, reflecting, crying, praying over a broken relationship, but yet i know so little about religious art and architecture. the reviews seem promising, and i hope that reading the book will help me to experience churches better, given that i am going to visit rome soon!
