My New Walking Stick

Thank you, friend Carrie, for the wonderful walking staff.

Walking home from BART, I passed the new cathedral in Oakland and decided to go in to see if there was some other photograph I would like to take there. As often happens, something I wanted to photograph -- the bottom part of a stained glass window -- was so low that I had get down on one knee (not to pray!) And, as happens lately, getting up again was quite a challenge -- so it was heaven to have that beautiful, serpentine staff to lean on and pull myself up again. Did I say, "Thank you, Carrie?"

Have you seen the Pharaoh that walks around Oakland and Berkeley? He has a staff also, or a collection of them.
