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!

That would be a kinda cool sanctus bell alternative.

Totally gets your attention. The beauty of it was the 3 blasts right where the 3 rings go. It kinda unnerved Father. There was also a high pitched lawn mower shortly thereafter.

Tonight it was the crying baby sonata in crankiness minor.

I love fog horns. They sound so eerie at night when the fog envelopes you in a blanket you can't see out of.
