Not My Cross To Bear













As I was leaving the Plaza Art Fair on Saturday I encountered a cross-bearing man. His cross was fashioned with a wheel for easier transport. The man's shaved head lacked a crown of thorns and he wore sneakers. I speculated with the woman pictured here about whether this odd man was an evangelist or a performance artist. While I was tempted to follow him back to the Plaza to get an answer, I decided to let the mystery be. (The art, music, food and weather made this year’s event the best I’ve experienced.)

    JD- We exchanged pleasantries for a few moments until the light at Cleaver & Main changed.

    When I see cats like this, I just can't help but think of Luke 18:10-14.

    ...which then always leaves me the Del McCoury version of "Recovering Pharisee" in my head for the rest of the day.

    Hmm. Some guy carrying a half scale cross on wheels across the Country Club Plaza during an Art Fair.

    Doesn't really compare to this level of commitment:
