Out of the city

A comedy of errors (which is never seen as comical at the time) over the rental of our car for the rest of our journey got us on our way out of London well after noon Wednesday. The suburbs were a maze as the maps are not large enough to show all the routes and it was a puzzle finding the way out of town, but once in the countryside things started looking up. We made it to Stonehenge around 5 p.m. and on to my favorite English cathedral, Salisbury (the ancient Sarum), an hour later. The attached photo is of me dwarfed by the magnificent twelfth-century structure. Though many cathedrals took centuries to complete, this one was built in 38 years, the workmen paid the then-princely sum of a penny a day, and had job security for life or 38 years, which ever was shorter.

Thence we were on to Bath, where, dead tired, we crashed in a B&B hotel, in the center of this beautiful town of both splendid ruins and archeological discoveries of the Roman rule of Britain, and the Abbey church which is located, like the Salisbury Cathedral, on one of England's most ancient places of worship. We had hoped to make it on up to Stratford On Avon this evening, but after getting such a late exit from London had to stop here, which is an exceptionally good place to visit anyway. So now to see how the morrow brings.

On a procedural note: the only Internet cafe we found in Bath was closed by the time we found it, so yesterday's and today's entries were sent simultaneously.

Differences between you and your boss

When you please your boss, you're apple polishing. When your boss pleases his boss, he's being co-operative.

When you're out of the office, you're wandering around. When your boss is out of the office, he's on business..

The healing answer

Among all my patients in the second half of life, that is to say, over 35, there has not been one whose problem was not that of finding a religious outlook on life. It is safe to say that every one of them fell ill because he had lost that which the living religions of every age have given to their followers, and none of them has been really healed who didn't regain his religious outlook.
