View From Your Table

Cambridge, England

The incomparable James C. outdoes himself with this one, shot from the Cambridge Backs. That’s King’s College chapel in the background, and he’s eating Christine Ferber confiture, and drinking a lambic He writes:

This little picnic was going to be in front of Ely’s cathedral over the weekend, but the biggest storm in 20 years intervened. I’m glad we didn’t get hit too badly in East Anglia—as you can see, not all the leaves were stripped from the trees.

You were not exaggerating about the intensity of Ferber confiture. Wow!

For intensive fruit taste, I thought I’d try it with a bottle of Belgian lambic.

At last I’m starting your book as well!

I don’t know if it’s possible to get as many of the things I love dearly into one shot (that does not involve my wife and children, I mean). The existence of Cambridge is a sign that God loves us and wants us to dwell in awe.
