3.188

A pilgrimage…
I brought along with me to Colorado Springs some Bro. Mel watercolors. I decided today to find the location of one such house painting by Bro. Mel — on the “corner of Tejon and Caramillo Streets.” Come to find out, this location is an easy walk from where I am staying…

Tomorrow, October 12 and the Feast of Our Lady of the Pillar, will mark the first anniversary of Bro. Mel’s death.

P.S…. 10 December 14 — Today I went back to this house. It was all decorated for Christmas. A woman came to the door and I explained that I had a 22-32 year old painting of her house. She likes art and was so happy to received it — I gave her a Bro. Mel book, too! It was a great feeling for me to give out an unexpected Christmas gift.
