Mary Mary So Contrary
Thank you Carla for taking me out on a ride to Ely, North of Cambridge. We played tourists and went to the Cathedral, founded in 673 by a young Saxon princess called Etheldreda.
For me (who really despises all sorts of organized powerful religions worldwide) the most amazing discovery was the Mary statue in a sort of light and joyful section of the church: Mary with golden hair and a sexy blue dress, one foot over the rim, definitely channeling something from earth to heaven or sun or vice versa. Totally powerful and positive!
Then we found a lazy bishop and some interesting colorful glass paintings, homoerotic maybe?!
