Another year...done and dusted!
Ginnie Hart: Definitely in the 11th hour, Ray, ready to turn the page!
That looks so peaceful.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Michael, it was. Exactly what the doctor ordered for so many of us right now.
A beautiful image, Ginnie! Lovely Basilica
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. The crypt was my favorite part!

Nothing wrong with taking some time to wind down and have some reflection about the almost passed year. Ginnie I so love your treatment here.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Astrid, and thank you kindly.

Looks to be a lovely place to think about the year coming to an end and to wonder what the year ahead holds.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Alan. Are we surprised every year when we look back, I wonder???
Wat een mooi, vredig en verstild plekje.
Fijn om de 3 zo `close` te zien.
Ginnie Hart: I was so glad the 3 ladies came in and sat down, Marjolein. It was perfect for the mood of this place. Bedankt.
Somewhere to sit an contemplate where this last year has gone...and wonder what the next one will bring

Nice treatment Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Bill. Looking back over the year I'm always amazed by what has transpired, not only personally but worldwide!

I love the capitals on those columns Ginnie. This place looks really worthy of a visit.
Ginnie Hart: Definitely worth a visit, Chad!

I love your title words and the view to the crypt of St. Servatius Basilica! He is the patron for those who suffer with Foot or Leg Ailments.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Philine. I always learn so much from you!
Fine processing
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

wow... now that's a cozy crypt... i would like a living room like that lol just beautiful, Ginnie!!
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, to be honest, I often like the crypts better than the huge, cavernous sanctuaries up above. Seriously. Thanks.
You know you won't be able to stay still there, if you find some church cushions!
Ginnie Hart: I'm sure yo have a point, LC!
I love the picture and your title words Ginnie. In full over here we would say/ sing 'Be still my soul, the Lord is on thy side' like this https://youtu.be/Q9B0CqDxXE8
Ginnie Hart: Oh yes, Brian. One of my favorite church hymns!

A very cozy appeal this chapel has! I love the ornate capitals that the columns have. Hard to believe 2017 is ending. Seems like yesterday that it was Y2K.
Ginnie Hart: Oh my, Steven. You remember, too, how we thought the world would come to an end back then. I was working in a computer company and remember the nightmares we expected to have. And look at what has happened now!
Nice presentation, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Tom.
Snugged up warm and cozy life these ladies. Canada is in a cold spell.
Ginnie Hart: It would definitely be a refuge from the cold, Mary.
A difficult exposure...
Ginnie Hart: Not too bad, Larry, but thanks.
the three wise women Ginnie....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Peter!

This looks so peaceful, a place for communing with God smile
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Cherry.

Three women at their devotions - or are they having a gossip?
Ginnie Hart: I didn't hear a peep out of them, Lisl, so I assume the former.
