Truth: I never knew there was a golden hour before Norm Frampton wrote about it. I should clarify — I didn’t know ‘golden hour’ was a phrase, because what with having eyes and all, I had occasionally noticed that certain sunsets cast a gold hue.
I was driving home on one of those cold wintery evenings when you wonder if you’ll make it home before the sun sets. I saw some glorious windows all aglow in sunset light, and I thought where there are pretty windows there are often pretty doors.
So I parked and checked it out.
Meh. The doors are meh. The framing is nice. It’s an attractive building.
The light was much better as seen with my own human lenses.
However, I did not take umpteen photographs of this building so we could all go Meh.
Does it have an interesting history? Um, I couldn’t find one.
Disappointed a bit in the doors, and the history, but further intrigued cause Yellow and Art and Language.
That’s some good modern religious art, right there. (It’s not blurry at all in person.) The Soma Church is an interfaith community comprised of several protestant sects. It’s a thoughtful title. I am impressed with the name they’ve given themselves.
Soma — Body — ORRR, if you’re a reader, a perfect drug one may use to cope with A Brave New World.
I took a moment of pause out there in the cold, pondering the richly layered metaphors, images, and quotes that ran through my head.
