Patrick's Rapture Tea

My friend Patrick and I decided to have a little Rapture Watch tea party this morning on his very lovely porch. Patrick answered the door unshaven and in his bare feet--a sort of fitting fashion statement on the seriousness of this whole Rapture Thing.   He casually led me to our Rapture Watch Seats on his (RW) Porch, where we sipped very delicious hot green tea and discussed everything from the merits of being just old enough, to the price of land in Kentucky. To keep things relevant, we would take a quick reading on our Rapture Status and each time, we noted we were both still right there on the porch--alive and well.

After our tea, Patrick took me on a tour of his yard which is magnificently uncomplicated and peaceful.  Here are some postcards from the tour....

from a tiny garden

to the pink earth

to an invitation etched in green.

We ended our tour back on the porch as casually and nonchallantly as it began.  It was a perfect start to the so-called end of the world.  Patrick and I shared a laugh and said goodbye.  As I drove away, I thought about our Rapture Watch.  Indeed, we had found it.  We even took the tour....

Thank you, Patrick!
