April 12th

Ready to play?

Since everyone’s staying home, let’s pretend we’re off on an International trip.  My books are set in places I’ve visited, and I’m sharing some of my photos this month.

Identify the location of the picture below.  Remember to register your answer by clicking “Leave a comment” at the top of this page and then write your reply (I’ll approve comments at the end of each day and reveal the locale in the following blog). 

Correct answer receives a point.  If you’re not certain, go ahead and guess! I’ll be posting a different photo, along with a hint, every day this month.  Whoever has the most points on April 30th will receive a prize (you’re not winning the lotto, dear people, but I will mail you a small gift which will include a modest Amazon card).  In the event of a tie, a randomly generated number will decide the winner. So, be sure to check back here each day, & let’s see who can . . .

Name That Location & Happy Easter!

Hint: This gothic church stands on the site of at least 5 earlier cathedrals.  It became a bishopric in the 4th Century and is still a destination for pilgrims today.  Its most famous features are the mysterious blue stained glass windows, which no one has been able to replicate in modern times.  The cathedral is also known for its special acoustics and labyrinth.  The architecture itself is believed by some to employ the concept of sacred geometry.

    • Yes, Amy, it’s Chartres! In recent years, they’ve begun a huge restoration project that has included cleaning the windows. When I visited, only one or two windows had been cleaned and the others were quite dark. Thank you for playing.
