Missa Cum Foghorn
I think it threw the young associate off a bit this morning. Usually during the "silent" canon, we get barking dogs, or the sound of dump trucks picking up trash, or lawn mowers, and in the evening, sometimes the jingle jangle jingle of not spurs riding merrily along - but an ice cream vendor.
But this morning was *special*. Amazing how sound carries from the bay! I don't know WHAT was moving in or out of the harbor (I don't think it was fog, as it was pretty clear, but overcast) -- but whatever it was, it was BIIIIIGGGGG as in tanker or something!
