:: Grand séminaire de Montréal ::

I see and write things first as an artist,
second as a woman,
and third as a New Yorker.
All three have built-in perspectives that aren’t neutral.
— Laurie Anderson

I met up with the Montreal Urban Sketchers yesterday at the Grand Séminaire de Montréal and it was quite astounding! The chapel was gorgeous and the grounds, well… huge! To think that the Sipulcian priests thrived within the seigneurial system from 1675 to 1840 in Montreal! It is my Dad’s passing away day — a great deal of thought for you Dad!

      It’s almost from a fairy tale as it is soooo old — 10 people lived in it to guard the fort in the 1600s… and then it became a bread making mill — they must have suffocated in the heat!
