Bayeux Cathedral

We managed to see the Bayeux Tapestry on our recent trip and found the experience incredibly moving. A pictorial description of events leading up to the Battle of Hastings, I would urge parents to show their kids this masterpiece of nearly 70 meters of cloth embroidered in wool and which is almost 1,000 years old! Today's fads and fashion will not endure as long, of that you can be sure. I wonder if computers and technology will be here in another 1,000 years; think about the detritus of obsolete computers and smartphones and where they will end up. Eventually the world will be a garbage dump and many species will become extinct.

Seeing ancient works of art reminds us of the inevitability of all things but also that endurance, particularly perseverance, even when life goes pear-shaped, is the noblest of all human attributes. After seeing the tapestry, we walked over to the cathedral where typically I light a candle for my mum and dad, sister and brother, who have all gone, and that wherever they may be they are at peace. Life is a great privilege.
