Cathedral Basilica Moods and Lights

One of my favorite things about photographing the inside of this cathedral was the various lighting available with which to experiment. Most of the overhead lights were turned off leaving just focal lighting on the art work and statues to illuminate the spaces, and then of course there were the candles and stained glass providing interesting light.

We will be here this weekend for my younger daughter’s Confirmation ceremony. It is such a beautiful place! If you are ever in St. Louis, I recommend a visit.

Migraine

17

Many people live with chronic pain myself included. I have chronic migraine. I get anywhere from 8 to 15 migraines per month. Sometimes two in one day. I have tried eliminating all possible triggers and am on multiple preventative medications, but they seem to get worse year after year.

I used to get really angry about having them but that only increased my suffering. Now, I am at the point of acceptance which has given me some peace of mind even though they are still not pleasant to experience.
