I’m here. Finally.

“One more item off my Bucket List”, I say to Carlotta.

~~~~~

My eyes can’t seem to absorb all of the beauty. The walls of this cathedral are covered with masterful art from top to bottom.

My heart is beating fast.

Every inch of me is shaking at the thought that I’m standing in the midst of all this creative spiritual beauty.

~~~~~~

“Children! Remember, God is everywhere but never more present than in the Sistine Chapel”, said Sister Mary Annunziciata in a raised tone.

I can hear her, clearly, as I stand here taking in the ecclesiastically magnificent imagery of all this reverent artistry.

~~~~~~

Tears begin to well in my eyes from the breathtaking splendor. I never imagined I’d step foot in this majestic cathedral.

Overwhelming chills wrap their arms around me. My head throbs from the excitement. I’ve arrived at a place I never thought I’d see.

~~~~~~

“Ignacia?”

“Ignacia, are you alright?”, I hear my friend shouting.

Loud sirens.

Fast driving.

Serene white light.

Author: Inside the Mind of Isadora

Intriguing, sensitive, mysterious, loving, artistic and crackling with excitement for life is a pretty good description of who I am. I just retired from the world of art where I sold my Artfully Designed Handmade Jewelry for 28 years; although, art will always be a part of whom I am no matter what venue I choose to express it.
