Here it is. I know you've been waiting. It's this weeks' free background image - free for you (or someone like you) to download and use as your very own. Use it at home, at work, school, church, or wherever you find yourself. I only ask that you share it freely and that you tell others you found it here.
The photo this week was taken during my recent trip to Washington D.C. at the National Cathedral.

On our last day in the nation's capitol, we visited the National Museum of African Art, the Sackler Art Gallery, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Library of Congress (I got my library card at the Library of Congress. I bet that you're all jealous) and the National Botanical Gardens. Busy day. We leave for home early tomorrow morning.

We visited the National Cathedral today. I am somewhat ambivalent about the "National" Cathedral. I worry that any church that ties itself to the state is compromised. The Church (with a capital C) does not belong to any nation. I did, however, appreciate that the tour guides and service leaders affirmed to the folks visiting that "this is your cathedral."
We took the tour, visited the gift shop (where I bought a book of poems based on the gargoyles and grotesques of the cathedral (one of which is Darth Vader)). Then we stayed for the Evensong service by the choir.

It's a bit later than usual, but I hope that I can be forgiven as I am on vacation with my family. Here is this week's free background image. Use it wisely, share it freely.
And for those of you who like to know - this photograph was taken at the National Museum of American Indians - the coolest of the Smithsonian buildings.
