Thursday Morning – along the way

Plans and schedules needed to be tossed this summer.  i have found, keeping an open heart can lead to excellent adventures so. I am sharing a little of my Thursday with you.
 It wasn’t until the Grand Avenue Bus Station
 I thought to pull out my “point & shoot.” 
 I’m standing with a colorful group of people, on the north bound side of a bridge, rather high up, with traffic zipping about.  We are waiting for the #70 bus.  It goes past some truly fabulous places.  We have “Grand Center,”  where Powell Symphony Hall and the Fox Theater live . . we pass Saint Louis University and the Veterans Hospital, then the scenery changes, and we come to part of the city that delights and fascinates me, although, many of my peers pretend it is not there.  
I am enrolled in a class in the “College Hill” neighborhood for the next couple of months. 
 We’ll see what manages to find the way into my camera, okay?

 I arrive super early, and yesterday the weather was splendid, so I decided to walk a couple of blocks to “Peace Park.”
 Across the street stands this lovely church house.  I don’t know enough about the neighborhood, yet.  I wonder if the church is used?  A cute young lady ran in front of the building shouting “take my picture!”  I enjoyed her dancing.  There are matching angels on the front of this place.  Just around the corner i should see the park.
Morning Light across the park gives it the feel of Hope.  There are a few people using  facilities on the property.  Their eyes have trust, I will not use my little camera, so they feel safe.  The place was designed with an open air kind of shelter, and there’s an enormous “feasting table” so community members can share in a way that offers dignity and respect to everyone.
   You can barely see it, in the left part of this photo, I captured part of the “feasting table.”
 It’s time for me to cut across towards my class and sign in.  I’ll be there a few hours, then head back home.
 Here’s where I’ll get off the bus, then head downstairs to catch a train.

i wonder what we’ll find next time?

Thank you for visiting.

    That was a pleasant ramble, Georgy. Thank you very much. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a church with such bold red doors. I read the other day that residents with red front doors are very confident about themselves.
