Pictures for Digital Curation

For my final project for my Digital Curation class I have to create a digital collection. I have decided that I will do a collection on the religious buildings in Macon, Georgia. This was inspired by the quote:
"If you go to Atlanta, the first question people ask you is, 'What's your business?' In Macon they ask, 'Where do you go to church?' In Augusta they ask your grandmother's maiden name. But in Savannah the first question people ask you is 'What would you like to drink?'" -- Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil by John Berendt.

So this post is a place holder for all the pictures I have taken for my collection. (© O. Bushey 2017)

Reaction to My Upcoming Last Semester

St Gemma Galgani, ora pro me
I have reached the final semester for graduate school and I approach it with mixed emotions. Relief that it is almost done, wonder at what will happen next, excited, to name a few. But I am struck with a strange sense of . . . quite honestly I don't know. It's a weird sensation in the pit of my gut that gnawing at my subconscious pushing me towards melancholy.

Tonight was the first night for one of my classes. Something was said that left me hollow and uneasy. I know in my line of occupation that there are not many who have similar beliefs or opinions as me. (Life in general feels like that) But I knew that before I hit 'submit' on my application to school. I am not saying I regret going and getting my Masters in this field - I am very glad I have. But I was face tonight with an unexpected reminder to be mortuum mundo and alive to what is good and just.

Maybe this all means that I will need a lot of prayers this up coming semester.
